Overview Information

The B9 Tribeca is Subaru's flagship vehicle. Deemed a crossover, it is longer, wider, and taller than the Outback. With 3 rows of seating, it can seat up to 7 passengers. Power is provided by a 250hp 3.0L 6-cylinder boxer engine. A 5-speed automatic is the only offered transmsission. All-wheel-drive is standard as is stability control. The prominent grille is intended to evoke Subarus heritage as an aircraft manufacturer. The interior echoes the same theme with a large flowing dash and center console "cockpit" design. The B9 Tribeca is built in Lafayette, Indiana.

What Changed:

All-new flagship for Subaru. Deemed a crossover, the B9 Tribeca is longer, wider, and taller than the Outback. With 3 rows of seating, it can seat up to 7 passengers. Power is provided by a 250hp 3.0L 6-cylinder boxer engine. A 5-speed automatic is the only offered transmsission. All-wheel-drive is standard as is stability control.

Official Word:

"The Subaru B9 Tribeca will shake up the staid SUV segment while delivering our tried and tested Symmetrical All-Wheel drive system with a dose of high style. With its unique exterior design, bold high-tech interior and flexible seven passenger seating capability, the Subaru B9 Tribeca is more than just a new style of Subaru. It is a progressively designed SUV that combines the fun-to-drive handling, maneuverability and fuel efficiency found in Subaru sport wagons with the roominess and capability of an SUV." -- Fred Adcock, Executive Vice President, Subaru of America, Inc.
