2016 Subaru Tribeca

Subaru Tribeca is a mid-size crossover SUV which was originally launched in 2005. It was designed mainly for the North American market so it is also manufactured in company’s plant in Indiana. After almost a decade of production (with only one major refresh) the production finally ended. The main reason for this move were poor sale results in last few years, so company now works on new model which will be drastically changed. Beside new look and many new technologies, probably the biggest change will be in its size. New model, which will come as 2016 Subaru Tribeca will became larger and it will now belong to the class of full-size crossovers.

As we said, new model will be much larger. Subaru Tribeca will be full-size SUV and it will feature three rows of seats with capacity for seven passengers. The final look of new model is not known yet, but since it will be heavily based on Viziv 2 concept, the look will be also much influence by this car. All in all, this means much more aggressive and attractive look, compared to current conventional look. When it is about interior, 2016 Subaru Tribeca will be larger so expect more space inside. Beside more space, interior will be completely redesigned and it will get all new look. It will also get many new hi-tech features, which will make this model far more advanced than current model.

The 2016 Subaru Tribeca will suffer significant changes also when it is about engine. Current 3.5 liter V6 will probably be replaced with smaller, but more efficient 2.5 liter four cylinder. It is expected that the company will offer some optional engines in next few years. It is pretty much for sure that new model will come in a plug-in hybrid variant. However, this version won’t be available for 2016 Tribeca, but for next few years. This model will use a system which will probably be based on some Toyota’s configuration.
