Sneak Peak - 2006 Subaru

Sneak Peak - 2006 Subaru

Subaru working on a 7-passenger crossover

Fuji Heavy Industries Ltd., the General Motors Corp. affiliate and Japanese parent of Subaru, is working on its first seven-passenger people mover, a van-like crossover vehicle that reportedly will be named Tribeca. The vehicle, which is slated to go on sale next year as a 2006 model, will feature all-wheel drive and a twin-cam 3.0 liter flat-six engine. It will feature three rows of seats and will be larger than any vehicle in the current Subaru lineup. The Tribeca will go into production at Subaru's plant in Lafayette, Ind., and will spawn a version for GM subsidiary Saab to be called the 9-6X. --Paul Lienert.

P.S. - At work we were awarded a part for a new Subaru launching Spring 2005, I wonder if this is the vehicle? Hmmm I'll have to enquire about it.
