The 2011 Subaru Tribeca delivers a highly engaging driving experience and top safety performance with Subaru quality.
Crisp, elegant exterior design gives Tribeca a strong road presence without relying on overbearing styling elements. The grille, integrated into the front bumper, features a chrome spread-wing design, with the Subaru star cluster badge as the focal point. The side profile features powerful fender and wheel forms that enhance the signature rising character line.
The Subaru 3.6-liter Boxer engine is engineered to produce powerful low-end torque, and its use of regular-grade fuel helps reduce operating costs compared to competitors that specify premium grade fuel. The engine produces 256 horsepower and 247 lb.-ft. of peak torque.
The Tribeca’s sophisticated twin cockpit interior design features a flowing, sculpted dash and center console design. Aluminum-look trim highlights the sculpted shapes of the dashboard. Electroluminescent dials and subtle ambient interior footwell lighting (front and rear) provide a sophisticated touch.
The second row seat features a tilt-and-slide control on both sides and an assist spring that reduces the effort needed to slide the second row seat. Molded assist grab handles on the lower C-pillar ease passenger step-in to the third row. The standard 50/50 split fold-down third-row seat features integral headrests.
Luxury is stepped up in the Tribeca Limited models, which are equipped with leather seating surfaces for front and second rows; two-position memory for the front driver’s power-adjustable seat; 385-watt harman-kardon audio system; XM Satellite radio receiver and antenna; BlueConnect hands-free Bluetooth phone connectivity, and ambient center console and cup-holder illumination.
Base model estimated mpg: 16/21
Estimated starting price: $30,495
