2019 Subaru Tribeca
During 2005 and 2014, we have seen the Tribeca for US and European markets as seven-seat car from Subaru. Its release faced troubles. The first generation was something unexpected from Subaru which made them to decide a facelift after a year in the market. After that, the facelift ran better but in the end, it was one of the worst selling cars in US market that then discontinued. Now, this seven-seat crossover will be revived as the new 2019 Subaru Tribeca, but the name is still unknown.
2019 Subaru Tribeca Redesign
Right now, many reports indicated about the first prototype under the test on open roads and it gives us some promising hints. The company will use the Explorer and the new CX-9 as their benchmarks and it means that they will try hard to make the new 2019 Subaru Tribeca is better than the two. It will also work with the brand new modular platform which was used for the first time on the new Impreza. This can provide lower center of gravity which much stiffer structure compared to the original version. Many said that it will be the seven-seat crossover with the weight of the previous Forester to make it impressive. It seems that the size is wider than its two rivals but it can be shorter in height. The length is proportional as long as the rivals. From the Viziv 7 Concept, it will be car with similar grille as the Impreza, but larger. The top has squarer design compared to other models and the camouflage shows the muscular lines. Overall, the exterior design can be better than the previous model.
Its release date is still far but it is safe to assume that the new 2019 Subaru Tribeca will reflect the cabin of Forester but with minor exceptions. It will be available with the same dashboard, features and materials as that car, but it can go with better materials especially for the higher end models and more features too. It will also get seven seats as standard. Many sources suggested that the company offers individual bucket seats.
2019 Subaru Tribeca Engine
If you have more concern on the engine, the original model was provided with naturally aspirated flat-six gas engine to make 240 and 260 hp and it was quite fun to ride. But, this engine cannot be kept since it was not efficient to deal with the weight. Therefore, the new 2019 Subaru Tribeca may come with lighter body to give better efficiency and performance. It is suggested to get back with the flat-six engine but everything is still rumors. With the low weight and low center of gravity, it can go with 2.5 liter turbo flat-four for 300 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque.
2019 Subaru Tribeca is expected to come out in the beginning of 2018 and the price is still unknown but many experts predicted to be about $30,000 for the base.
