Essentially unchanged for 2009, the Subaru Tribeca is a midsize crossover SUV that comes in base, Limited and Special Edition trims, each available in five- or seven-passenger configurations. Five-passenger base trims feature 18-inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, a tilt steering wheel, power front seats and accessories, cruise control, a CD/MP3 player with an auxiliary audio jack, a seven-inch display screen and remote keyless entry. Seven-passenger trims add a 50/50 split-folding third-row seat and rear climate controls. The all-wheel-drive Tribeca is powered by a 3.6L horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine generating 256 hp and 247 lb-ft of torque paired to a mandatory five-speed automatic transmission with a manual shift mode. EPA-estimated fuel economy is gauged at 16 mpg city/21 mpg hwy. Subaru Tribeca standard safety features include traction and stability control, antilock brakes with brake assist, a rollover-sensor system, front-seat side airbags, full-length side curtain airbags and active front head restraints.Read more Read less

Seating for up to seven; full-time all-wheel drive; ground clearance; safety features.
The 2009 Subaru Tribeca is a mid-size crossover SUV built on the same basic underpinnings as the much-acclaimed Outback. It combines some of the best attributes of an SUV body style with the better handling and safety of a car-based design, is one of the most manageably sized vehicles with seating for 7, and its all-wheel-drive system is full-time and road-oriented for good performance in winter weather. What's more, there's good ground clearance for those deep winter snows. With a responsive 3.6L engine, the Tribeca has plenty of power, making it fun to drive as well.
