The Tribeca is a midsize crossover SUV, and Subaru's largest model. It's a 7-seater that employs symmetrical all-wheel drive, and while it's built to stand up to rough weather and adverse road conditions, the Tribeca's size and maneuverability make it most at home in urban settings. The 2011 Subaru Tribeca carries over from the previous year.
The 3.6R Premium is the base trim of the 2011 Subaru Tribeca, and it features 18-inch alloy wheels, tri-zone automatic climate control, cruise control, keyless entry, automatic headlights, full power accessories (including heated power front seats), and a 6-speaker sound system. The Tribeca 3.6R Limited features leather upholstery for the first two rows, 10-speaker Harman Kardon sound system, and other enhancements. The Tribeca 3.6R Touring upgrades the wheels and adds roof rails, a sunroof, rearview camera (all available as options on the Limited trim), and xenon headlights. The 3.6R Touring models also have distinctive exterior paint and decoration. Both the 3.6R Limited and the 3.6R Touring trims may add a navigation system and/or a rear-seat entertainment system. On all Tribeca models, the second-row seats slide fore and aft 8 inches. With the rear seats folded down, cargo capacity for all Tribecas is 74 cubic feet, according to Subaru.
The 2011 Subaru Tribeca's standard power plant is a 256-horsepower, 3.6-liter, flat 6-cylinder engine that delivers 16 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway, according to the EPA. It works with a 5-speed automatic transmission with manual sequential shift mode.
Standard safety features on the 2011 Subaru Tribeca include anti-lock brakes with brake assist, stability control with rollover sensor, traction control, active front head restraints, front side air bags, and full-length side curtain air bags. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave the Tribeca highest-possible "Good" ratings in frontal-offset and side-impact crash tests.
Starting MSRP for the 2011 Subaru Tribeca is $30,495.
