Subaru Tribeca Successor to Launch in 2017: Rumour

Subaru is apparently working on a replacement for the now-cancelled Tribeca crossover, which has been suffering from slow sales for a while now – so much so that has listed it as one of the worst-selling vehicles of 2013.

According to a report from Australia, the unnamed crossover will most likely use a widened and lengthened version of the same platform that fortifies the current Legacy and Outback. The added length and width to this vehicle will allow Subaru to make room for seven passengers and their stuff. This combination will put the new model in the thick of the very competitive three-row segment.

As far as styling goes, there have been hints that the new vehicle will borrow cues from the VIZIV 2 concept that was displayed at the Geneva Motor Show in March. The crossover is expected to have Subaru’s current design language that involves a taller hexagonal radiator grille, like the one on the rugged Outback, and piercing elongated headlights.

The crossover will have the usual roster of engine choices from Subaru, including four- and six-cylinders. As with all its siblings, the new crossover will likely come standard with the impressive all-wheel-drive system. There is also a talk of a gasoline-electric hybrid powertrain to arrive later in the production cycle to round out the lineup.

The new crossover will be built at the plant in Indiana and is expected to arrive no later than 2017. There is even speculation that it could be previewed as a concept at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show.
