Model changes:

New front and rear styling gives the Subaru Tribeca a new look for 2008, and it gets a larger, 3.6L flat-six engine, which has a modest boost in power and a significant, 15-percent boost in torque over the previous 3.0L engine. The Tribeca also gets a revised five-speed automatic transmission–including new gear ratios–for better response and shift quality, and a new design of 18-inch alloy.

It#39;s been fitted for variable valve timing for both intake and exhaust valves, there#39;s a chain-drive valve system for easier servicing, and it now runs on regular gasoline rather than premium. Shifting is done by a five-speed automatic transmission; it#39;s been revised with new gear ratios and other changes that result in smoother shifts and better response.

There#39;s also a Sportshift manual gear selector.

The Tribeca comes with Subaru#39;s symmetrical all-wheel-drive system with variable torque distribution. The system normally sends 55 percent of power to the rear wheels but can vary the transfer through a hydraulic clutch pack. The vehicle dynamics control system aids the all-wheel-drive system and helps maintain stability.

On either model, the second-row seats have an adjustable reclining backrest and are split 40/20/40 and can fold forward for more cargo space or slide fore and aft up to eight inches. The third-row seat on seven-passenger models is split 50/50 and folds completely flat. Third-row seat access is now improved, with a tilt-slide feature for the second-row seat–only on the driver#39;s side–to allow single-handed access to the rearmost seats.

Seven-passenger models, besides having their different seating arrangement, also get a rear cabin air conditioner and headliner-mounted rear-seat heater vents.

The interior has a distinctive, sweeping design in front, with matte-metallic materials and a flowing twin cockpit instrument panel and large electroluminescent gauges. A seven-inch vehicle information display is also included.

The Tribeca has a wide range of safety features, all standard, including VDC stability control, anti-lock brakes with brake assist, front-seat side-impact air bags, and side-curtain bags with a rollover sensor.

Standard features on the base Tribeca include power driver and front passenger seats with lumbar adjustment, cruise control, dual-zone automatic climate control, steering-wheel audio controls, remote keyless entry, and a 100-watt, six-speaker CD sound system with MP3 compatibility. Limited models add leather upholstery, ambient lighting, heated front seats, a power moonroof, roof rails, and a 160-watt sound system with subwoofer, headliner-mounted tweeters, and six-disc changer.

Major options include a DVD entertainment system with nine-inch widescreen display, a navigation system, and a remote engine starter.
