The Mazda Tribute is the overlooked counterpart to the popular Ford Escape. Despite slightly different styling, the Tribute shares a 2.3L I-4 or 3.0L V-6 with the Escape. The 2.3L offers a 5-speed manual standard on the FWD model. Both engines are available with a 6-speed automatic and 4WD. All trim levels get standard Roll Stability Control (RSC) and Dynamic Stability Control (DSC). Options include heated leather seats, DVD entertainment system, 16-inch alloy wheels, and a towing package. As the Tribute is essentially a restyled Escape, there really is no compelling reason to prefer it to its Ford cousin.
