2001 Mazda Tribute -- A catchy Jamaican flavored "Zoom, Zoom, Zoom" advertising jingle and the image of the sporty-looking Tribute heading-up rest of the Mazda line is helping launch Mazda's successful re-entry into the SUV market. Instead of re-badging an Explorer like they did with the now extinct Navajo, Mazda teamed up with Ford designers to produce an original and sporty SUV. Medium in build, the 2001 Tribute has a base price of $17,005 MSRP, is available in with two engine choices, offers both 4WD and 2WD, and a plethora optional equipment.
