"
The Tribeca - style and convenience
Tribeca each model is distinguished by its very complete standard equipment, including a glass sliding sunroof / electric leaflet, automatic dual zone control air conditioning with air filtration, AM/FM/CD/MP3 audio chain with 6 speakers, taken Auxiliary audio and wiring for the XM and Sirius satellite radio, steering wheel leather sheath with audio controls, heated front seats have electric adjustment and lumbar support rails for roof rack, front and lateral airbags for the driver and front passenger, curtain lateral airbags with rollover detection (first and second rows), exterior mirrors, electrically adjustable heated color-keyed with integrated flashing LED lights has a high intensity discharge (HID) Xenon with manual leveling headlights Halogen fog has multiple reflectors , sills and more.
The Subaru Boxer engine of 3.6 liters, a 24-valve, DOHC Tribeca has developed a couple of 247 lb-ft to 4400 rev / min and a power of 256 hp to 6000 r / min. Pollutant emission engine are very small, its energy efficiency is excellent in everyday driving, like his couple diets low engine moderates. In the current context of rising gasoline prices, consumers will appreciate the Tribeca requires regular unleaded fuel, unlike many competing models.
The 3.6-liter engine benefited from the active system control valves Subaru (AVCS) for both intake than exhaust, and it's torque has an automatic gearbox with five ratios SPORTSHIFT. This results in a rapid procurement reporting for linear acceleration and smooth. The clutch system uses a vehicle speed and the opening of the accelerator to determine the driving power available, while simultaneously calculating the optimum gear position depending on the route. To enable smooth performance even more, the "pulse controller" Subaru matches the gearbox has the engine speed during the demotion. Therefore, this results less research "good speed" in uphill or downhill, as well as increased energy efficiency. The gearbox is endowed function variable torque distribution (VTD) system of symmetric integral traction. Control of the dynamics of the vehicle (electronic stability program) as well as traction control (TCS) contribute to the performance of the integral traction.
The safety of occupants is a priority
The new 2009 Tribeca was designed to obtain the best odds safely in the automotive industry. The 2008 Tribeca, which shares the same structure as the 2009 model had the highest scores in program evaluation of new vehicles from the U.S. Department of Transportation's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Tribeca had merit five stars for frontal and lateral impact tests for both positions of the driver and passengers. These results add to the 4 star rating from NHTSA tests for rollover resistance. (To date, no SUV has merit five stars in rollover test). The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has attributed the 2008 Tribeca designation "First choice security" for having achieved the highest rating (Good) testing of deporte frontal impact, side impact and rear impact.
The Subaru Tribeca benefited a frame structure enhances annular airbags dual stage driver and front passenger occupant detection has, of mounted side airbags in the seat and curtain airbags standard lateral (first and second rows). A rollover system, able to detect the impending rollover of the vehicle and deployant lateral curtain airbags standard, is also on the Tribeca series. In addition, the Tribeca benefited from the brake booster to the standard braking system ABS, the control of vehicle dynamics (VDC) and the control of traction to all four wheels. Brake Assist analyzes the force and stroke on the brake pedal and increases hydraulic thrust for more efficient emergency braking, also activating the ABS system as needed.
