All car companies want to keep their customers. That’s why Subaru created the Tribeca three years ago. The kids who bought WRXs and Outbacks were finding themselves with families and needed something that could hold seven people.
Our 2008 Tribeca Limited was pure Subaru: boxer engine, all-wheel drive, safety-conscious, and built with the spirit of a rally car. The Tribeca is faithful to the Subaru’s ideals, which means the loyalists will love and leave others scratching their heads. Full story

Subaru added a new engine for the 2008 Tribeca, a new 6-cylinder 3.6-litre SUBARU BOXER engine that delivers more power, more torque, improved fuel economy and emissions performance - all on regular petrol.
The larger engine displacement increases engine torque to 247 lb.-ft. at 4,400 rpm, and horsepower to 256 at 6,000 rpm, providing improved low-end torque without sacrificing high-rpm power. The new engine package, which adds displacement without adding overall size, not only maintains excellent emissions levels but delivers improved fuel efficiency in real world driving situations.
The new 3.6-litre engine is connected to a 5-speed automatic transmission with SPORTSHIFT that features an all-new torque lock-up converter and a new transmission control unit. The result is faster gearshifts with less lag time and smoother, more linear acceleration. Full story

Now it looks darn right plain with its smoothed out nose and plain-Jane headlights. I understand that Subaru has done this to give all their Subaru cars a family-resemblance- but this new front is not a direction that I like. While they say this new front is to resemble (...) > Full story
