Just found this on the web, looks like they have finaly upgraded the audio and included bluetooth.


MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 09/10/09 -- The 2010 Tribeca is the SUV of choice for drivers who need 7-passenger seating capacity, want the confident all-weather multi-terrain handling of Subaru's outstanding Symmetrical full-time All-Wheel Drive, and the exceptional range of standard equipment that makes every trip a pleasure.
The 2010, the 7-passenger Tribeca, the Tribeca Limited Package and Tribeca Premier Package receive a range of enhancements to comfort, luxury, and safety.

- The Tribeca Limited Package and Premier Package further add a new 10-speaker harman/kardon sound system including subwoofer, 7-spoke 18-inch alloy wheels, a single-colour exterior paint finish with silver roof rails, SIRUS Satellite Radio (including a 3-month trial subscription), and voice-activated Blueconnect Bluetooth technology for hands-free cell phone operation.

I had stopped at a local Subie dealer in Atlanta recently who claimed that the '10 Tribeca was getting a 4-inch stretch, and then a full redesign in '11.

I found it highly doubtful that Subaru would make a length change just before a full redesign, though a stretch would be welcome for rear-seat passengers.

Any rumors on the '11 model?

The lines between Forester/Outback/Tribeca are a little fuzzy in the '09 lineup as far as vehicle needs go. If you are going to have a stripped number of offerings (which I like) make sure there isn't a lot of overlap. In my opinion, they should either drop the Tribeca from their lineup, or increase the length to make it a comfortable 3-row vehicle. The '09 Outback is now wider and taller relative to its old size, and the next Tribeca should also be a bit bigger to differentiate itself from it. I think the Forester should have kept it's smaller proportion (great sized vehicle) and the Outback made a wise move increasing width and height.

Oh yeah; a $49k+ subie? OUCH. Good luck with that. There are too many offerings in that realm to compete.

canadian market has higher prices. US price should stay closer to what we paid before. Tribeca isn't hottest vehicle in Subaru's lineup, and new Outback probably does not help Tribeca's sales figures to grow.

its a an article from canada..it wont be that much lol and i dont think they would drop it but if they have those options like back up cam standard like in the canada article it should do better, ofcourse it will need to grow b/c the new outback is bigger and pretty popular, 2 people in my small town in ny have them and subarus are not that popular in my town but they have been coming around more and more

Scroll down the following Subaru 2010 brochure to see the list of features -- for the most part as reported in that Canadian article.

I'm planning to install an Azentek Smartmirror all-in-one bluetooth/navi/backup camera on my SE this fall/winter, and once done I'll post some information here unless somebody else does it sooner.

I don't know if they will go ahead with the redesign in 2011. I think they might drop the tribeca from their lineup. Its not selling well at all. Look at the sales number for the last year or so.

Jan 09 Tribeca 415 -54%

SOA announces:

Subaru of America, Inc. today announced pricing on the 2010MY Subaru Tribeca 3.6R models.

“Subaru is pleased to announce new product enhancements that continue to create value for the Tribeca product line,” said Tom Doll, executive vice president and COO, Subaru of America, Inc. “Tribeca offers a better driving experience and is a vehicle that is not only safe and fun to drive, with its 6-cylinder boxer engine, but also represents a tremendous value in its segment.”

The Tribeca is the largest model in the company’s line-up, a line-up which has been completely refreshed within the last two years. The company has enjoyed sales success with its new 2010 Legacy and Outback models, was the only full-line manufacturer to post a sales increase in 2008 and continues to be one of the few to do so for 2009, posting an all-time sales record in August.

The 2010 Tribeca models, arriving at [COLOR=#f82c70 !important]dealerships[/COLOR] soon, have more interior flexibility, newer technology and top safety ratings which the company is known for in the industry.

The Tribeca 3.6R adds option packages this year, similar to the all-new 2010 Legacy and Outback models - helping dealers tailor vehicles to better suit their customers’ needs. Subaru has also added a new, top-of-the-line Touring model, with new styling and technological features standard.

Subaru continues its relationship with audio specialists harmon/kardon® by offering a 10-speaker, 385-watt sound system standard on many models. Connectivity and safety continue to be top of mind as well, with a new Bluetooth hands-free phone module added as standard equipment on Limited & Touring models. The backup camera is now offered as an option on non-navigation Limited & Touring models with a 3.5″ display mounted on an auto-dimming rearview mirror.

Tribeca Model Highlights:

The Tribeca 3.6R Premium has a base MSRP of $30,495. This is $500 less than the starting price of the 2009MY seven-passenger model and is well-equipped with a 256 [COLOR=#f82c70 !important]horsepower[/COLOR] 6-cylinder SUBARU BOXER® engine, 5-speed automatic transmission with SPORTSHIFT®, Subaru’s proprietary Symmetrical [COLOR=#f82c70 !important]All-Wheel Drive[/COLOR] system (AWD), fog lights, 18″ alloy wheels, 8-way power driver seat, 4-way power passenger seat, 3-rows of seating, flexible 40/20/40 split rear seatback, dual-zone automatic climate control, rear auxiliary air conditioning, heated front seats, and a full complement of [COLOR=#f82c70 !important]safety features[/COLOR] including electronic stability control.

The well-equipped Tribeca 3.6R Limited builds on 3.6R Premium content with standard equipment like the 10-speaker 6 CD harmon/kardon audio system, XM® Satellite Radio, BlueConnect® Bluetooth hands-free phone system, leather seat materials, 2-position memory driver’s seat, and Homelink®, and begins at an MSRP of $32,495.

The 2010 Tribeca 3.6R Limited offers the following options: Power Moonroof Package for $1,500, Power Moonroof and Navigation System for $3,700, and the Power Moonroof, Navigation System and Rear Seat Entertainment System (RSES) Package for $5,500.

The new top-of-the-line 2010 Tribeca 3.6R Touring model is equipped standard with all 3.6R Limited model features plus a monotone exterior paint treatment, 18″ alloy wheels, silver front underguard and roof rails, HID low-beam headlights, power moonroof, auto-dimming mirror with integrated 3.5″ backup camera display, and begins at $35,795. For 2010 model year the Touring model offers the following options: Navigation System for $2,200 and the combined Navigation and Rear Seat Entertainment System (RSES) for $4,000.

Destination and delivery for the Subaru Tribeca is $695 ($845 for dealers in Alaska).

"More interior flexibility". I would really like to know what that entails.
