The bold new B9 Tribeca is the first-ever Subaru SUV with available seating for seven passengers. It features a powerful 6-cylinder Boxer engine and Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive as its core technology.
Positioned above the Legacy® and Outback® vehicle lines, the B9 Tribeca takes the Subaru brand into a new market segment and is the new Subaru flagship. Its dramatic new styling debuts the new Subaru design theme, highlighted by a distinctive front grill inspired by the company’s aircraft heritage.
Subaru named the B9 Tribeca for the “triangle below Canal Street” section of New York City, an area that has become synonymous with the cutting edge of the city’s culture. The “B” stands for the boxer engine, and “9” is for the model series.
The B9 Tribeca is powered by a 3.0-liter, 250 horsepower 6-cylinder Boxer engine teamed with a 5-speed automatic transmission and the brand’s most advanced version of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. The system combines Variable Torque Distribution (VTD) All-Wheel Drive with the Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC)
stability system and four-wheel traction control system (TCS). The transmission’s SPORTSHIFT feature allows intuitive and responsive manual shift control when desired.
