The Subaru B9 Tribeca is a five- or seven-seat mid-size crossover SUV which was launched for the 2006 model year and went on sale in June 2005. It is based on the Subaru Legacy platform and the B9X concept car. The production version of this SUV is named for New York City's famed Tribeca neighborhood. It is the first Subaru vehicle, excluding the Japan-only Subaru R1/R2 featuring the new Subaru design language of a triangular grille and a rounded bodyshape, which many in the Subaru community have found controversial.
The B9 Tribeca is powered by a 3.0 L boxer engine and is priced from US$ 30,695 to 38,320. Saab was planned to have also received a version of the vehicle, called the 9-6X, but such plans have been stopped with Toyota's acquisition of the FHI stake held by General Motors (Saab's parent company). It would have been built alongside the Tribeca at Subaru's Lafayette, Indiana factory.
In the United States, Subaru's television ad campaign for the Tribeca has promeninently featured the Kansas song "Dust in the Wind".

Recent Changes[edit | edit source]
The Tribeca was slightly reworked for 2007 to address many of the complaints of reviewers. The updated model, debuting at the Chicago Auto Show, includes some work on the nose with a blacked-out grille, and revised struts, stabilizer bars, and spring rates for better handling. Inside, XM Satellite Radio and iPod connectors are pre-wired, while a backup camera and parking assist system can be added to the navigation system. A $1300 Special Edition includes a mesh grille, XM radio, and special wheels.
