Suzuki Sidekick Tracker Escudo 4x4 Review
/ Escudo / Tracker
If you think size, horsepower, price, or ability to intimidate pedestrians are factors that make a capable real world 4x4, you need to get out more. Because when it comes to tough, capable, reliable, and well built 4x4 vehicles, Suzuki is a force to be reckoned with.
Granted, Suzuki 4x4s have traditionally been comparably small in stature and the Suzuki Sidekick / Escudo / Tracker is no exception. But like a badger, wolverine, or Tasmanian Devil, these Suzuki 4x4's pack a walloping 4WD punch that belies their smaller size.
While cargo space is limited in the two door model, the four door carries a decent amount of gear with the rear seats folded flat. Combined with a good roof rack or top box, the Suzuki can carry everything one might need for a weekend on the trail--including passengers.
Two things set the Suzuki's
apart from many other 4x4 manufacturers: their reliability and fuel
economy. The Sidekick / Escudo / Vitara is one of the most reliable
vehicles on the market, according to automotive researcher such as JD
Also impressive is the
after-market, where owners can find everything they need to turn their
Suzuki 4x4 into...just about whatever they want. And with the money you
save--on fuel and the purchase price--you could buy a couple Suzuki
dirt bikes and a trailer to tow them in.
