Bottom line: The 2011 Subaru Tribeca is an all-weather, 7-passenger SUV with admirable crash test scores and attractive interior design. As with all Subarus, Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive is standard on the Tribeca.

Two years ago Subaru dropped the B9 designation from the model name and gave the Tribeca a facelift that got rid of the bottle-nose dolphin look.

The 2011 Tribeca is a carryover from 2010 with no significant changes except that the Caramel Bronze Pearl replaces Deep Bronze in the exterior color lineup. 2010 model year got new standard features such as heated front seats and auxiliary air conditioning for the 2nd and 3rd row seats.

Under the hood, the 2011 Tribeca is powered by a 256 hp 3.6-liter horizontally opposed Boxer engine that runs on regular fuel. The engine is engineered to produce maximum torque of 247 lb-ft at 2,000 rpm. Peak torque is available between 2,000 and 6,000 rpm. Engine power is channeled to the wheels by a 5-speed automatic transmission.

The Subaru Tribeca received the highest rating (5-stars) in all of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) crash tests. These results are in addition to the 4-star rating in the NHTSA tests for rollover resistance. Plus, the Tribeca is a “Top Safety Pick” by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

Standard 18 x 8-inch aluminum-alloy wheels feature an elegant dual 5-spoke design. The Tribeca is capable of towing a trailer of up to 3,500 pounds when equipped with the available accessory towing package.

Standard interior features include a dual-zone automatic climate control system; auxiliary air conditioning system for second and third rows; 8-way power driver’s seat; 4-way power passenger seat; leather-wrapped steering wheel with remote audio controls, and a 100-watt AM/FM stereo system with CD player (with MP3/WMA playback capability) and six speakers.

The Tribeca is built at the Subaru automotive plant in Lafayette, Indiana. Environmentalists can sleep at night knowing that the Tribeca is manufactured in a zero landfill plant and that plant has a backyard designated as a wildlife habitat by the National Wildlife Federation.
