About Mazda Tribute

Designed for people who prefer more car-like styling in their compact SUV, the 2009 Mazda Tribute attempts to place as much emphasis on "sport" as it does on utility. As in the past, the Tribute continues to share its unit-body design, powertrains and fully-independent suspension with its corporate cousins the Ford Escape and Mercury Mariner. To help ensure broad appeal, the Tribute offers seating for five, both four-cylinder and six-cylinder engines, front or all-wheel drive and three different trim levels. The Tribute HEV Hybrid model is available in limited numbers and only in the state of California.

What's new for 2009?
2009 Mazda Tribute

For 2009, base models receive an all-new 2.5-liter four cylinder engine that has more power and better fuel economy than last year's 2.3-liter unit. The 3.0-liter V6 also sees improvements in horsepower and fuel economy. An all-new six-speed automatic is standard on all but the front-drive Tribute "i" trim.

2008 Mazda Tribute

While far short of a full generational makeover, Mazda gave the 2008 Tribute a comprehensive visual revamping that left it with a more contemporary flavor. Effectively complementing the new look are significant feature upgrades, handling refinements and class-leading safety systems, plus a low-volume, California-only Hybrid variant.

"I bought this car to get rid of an Intrepid that was horrible. I wasn't sure about Mazdas but I got a great deal on the 2009 Tribute that would eat away my balance on the Intrepid. I fell in love with this car. I wish it had a little more power, but the ride is great. I have plenty of room for myself, my hubby, two kids and two dogs. Fits our Costco runs wonderfully also. Looks very stylish and the turn radius on this thing is amazing!!! I look forward to getting to drive it every morning."
