When SUVs became prevalent in the car industry, it is a sign that it is a sure money maker. Almost all manufacturers jump on the opportunity to join the fray. Subaru, however, did not devote a lot of time, design and effort to mass produce. Drive news confirmed it was only in 2006 that the car manufacturer decided to create one of their own.
Subaru Tribeca. Subaru unveiled the Subaru Tribeca. Because it is not really known then as an SUV maker, its first foray in the new fad did not really gain grounds. The Subaru Tribeca as a seven seater did not sit well with critics.
The 2006 Subaru Tribeca gets its power from a 250 HP, 3.0 Liter 6 cylinder engine. It is mated to a 5-speed automatic gearbox that controls all 4 wheels. Although fuel efficiency is good, the design and built did not click well with car enthusiasts. Some reviewed it as ugly and a little bit uncomfortable to drive. Likewise, they found the third row a little bit stiff and offers very limited space for cargo. The Later version like the 3.6-liter had some improvements but still similar to the earlier models. It also did not escape the recalls which affected 2007, 2008, 2010 models. These Subaru cars can practically still be your everyday buddy. If properly maintained, it will still have a long life.
To gain more ground in the SUV market, Subaru upgraded its production with the Subaru Outback. It is one of the most famous SUV models of the company. It aims to compete with the modern times.
