Subaru Tribeca Axed

Subaru is on a roll, with surging sales for all models. Well, all models except the Tribeca.

Launched in 2006, the Tribeca never earned much in the way of praise, and it could have used some to overcome it oddball styling – and that’s saying a lot considering Subaru’s historic indifference to curvacious sheetmetal.

In a release the company has said it will retire the three-row crossover in February of next year when the final models are delivered to dealers, where they will subsequently be deeply discounted or become slowly petrified.

But Subaru might not be without a big utility vehicle for long, announcing that it will, “return to the mid-size SUV segment with a three-row vehicle in the future.”
