Subaru Tribeca to be axed in January image

The Japanese based automaker Subaru is planning to pull the plug in the Tribeca in January, after almost 9 years of sales and 78, 000 units which have found new owners over this time.

The announcement has been made official by Subaru recently as the company said that the Tribeca will end production in January, next year, after a total of 78,000 units of the model have been sold over the years. The model in question has been in production ever since 2005 and it has even received a facelift, which added a different front fascia and some other tweaks. Subaru is already planning a three-row vehicle which should replace the Tribeca.

The Subaru Tribeca is currently being assembled in Lafayette, Indiana, United States, and the name comes from the TriBeCa neighborhood of New York City. The model is riding on the Legacy’s platform and it’s currently being sold in five- and seven-seat versions, being offered in a 5-door SUV body style, with a front-engine and a four-wheel drive layout. And speaking of engines, the Tribeca is only getting the 3.0 liter (2006 – 2007) and the 3.6 liter (2008 – present) unit under its hood, which is mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission.
