In a move that surprised few, Subaru has officially confirmed that production of its slow-selling Tribeca will end with an abbreviated 2014 model run. According to Subaru spokesperson, Jessica Tullman, the last of these midsize/3-row crossover SUVs will be arriving at dealers in February. The Tribeca has only sold about 78,000 units since it was introduced in 2005, and a scant 1,247 units have been purchased during the first nine month of this year. By comparison, Subaru's best-selling Outback model accounted for over 90,000 during that same period and the Forester racked up an additional 84,000+. While the Tribeca's departure will leave Subaru with a short-term hole in its lineup, Tullman went on to note: "The company has announced that it plans to return to the midsize SUV segment with a three-row vehicle in the future."
