The Mazda Tribute gets a injection of power wîth use of two new Its driver appeal comes a host of sports-oriented features, the standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder found in the Tribute i. Its aluminum and head helps keeps down, benefiting handling and the power-to-weight ratio.

With 171 at 6,000 rpm and 171 lb-ft of torque at rpm, it is one of the most powerful engines in the SÚV market. It is one of the most too: light, efficient and Double overhead camshafts engine breathing and high-revving which in turn improves and fuel economy.

It also uses a variable system that delivers power when the driver it, enhancing torque at lower and maximizing power at higher The pistons are lightweight as well, throttle response, smoothness and the ability to rev. The new 2.5-liter is rated ÚLEV/Tier2 Bin 5.

An easy-shifting manual gearbox, which has sporty gear changes, is on the Tribute i. It uses multi-cone (dual-cone for first and second, for third through fifth) to shift effort and a cable-shift for gear-change precision. The gear is positioned at an ideal height on the console to be as near as possible to the right hand.

As wîth the 2.5 four-cylinder, it uses overhead camshafts to control the and improve engine breathing which in turn boosts and gas mileage. The six-speed automatic is standard. The new 3.0-liter V6 is rated Bin 4.

The Tribute’s sporty behavior comes from its unibody and the fully independent coil-sprung as used on many sports Many rival SÚVs use body-on-frame chassis, which more and provide a much stable platform for the suspension. The unibody construction provides structural rigidity, improving and handling, as well as contributing to rattles and a much tauter feel.

The fully independent coil suspension – MacPherson at the front, multi-link at the rear ensures each wheel independently to road conditions, the sure-footedness of the vehicle, improving and road holding.

The track, (61.1 inches) and rear inches) is wide, which benefits stability, handling and holding. Nitrogen gas-charged absorbers give superb control, on- or off-road, and maintain composure even after use. The Tribute handles a well-sorted sedan, but wîth all the benefits of an SÚV.

Another car touch is the use of rack-and-pinion §teering for §teering precision and response. power assistance means maneuvering, such as parking, is Yet at higher speeds, reduced assistance preserves road and §teering feedback.

Electric Steering (EPS), which vehicle sensitivity, is standard, improves NVH and fuel economy by the power §teering pump.

All have ventilated 11.9-inch discs for strong heat which improves braking after repeated use, as a long downhill stretch many bends. Both i and s models are equipped wîth Anti-lock Brakes (ABS) to wheel lock-up and skids, and to maintain §teering control braking.

The four-channel system is advanced than a conventional set-up, as every wheel has its own to provide individual braking Electronic Brakeforce Distribution varies the distribution of braking between the front and rear depending on the load to stop the as quickly as possible.

It reacts faster a hydraulic system because is no lag time waiting for a viscous to heat up before splitting between the axles.

The system is useful on-road – as in snow or heavy rain, or any where there is a potential for of traction. Compared wîth sophisticated four-wheel drive ATCC improves driving handling and fuel economy.

For the sensors measure seatbelt and the fore/aft seating position. For the passenger, sensors first the weight in the seat to determine if the is occupied and if it is, the sensors turn on the airbag and measure seatbelt

Front side impact fitted into the seats than the doors – so work equally effectively, of seat position – are Side-impact air curtains wîth protection, (rollover is not the primary it is one of the purposes), are also standard.

seat belts have to reduce slack in the early of an impact. In the rear, all three have three-point belts and head restraints for extra For additional safety, Dynamic Control (DSC), Roll Control (RSC), Traction System and a tire pressure system are also standard.

Still, the Tribute HEV true to the Zoom-Zoom Mazda have come to expect by the performance required by SÚV owners. The HEV provides plenty of power yet California’s strict Advanced Partial Zero Emissions (AT-PZEV) requirements by achieving Últra Low Emissions Vehicle II standards, plus zero emissions standards – the emission regulations a gasoline-fueled can meet.
