Acceleration, Ride & Handling

One engine is available in the Tribeca, and it's a solid one. The 3.6-liter, horizontally opposed six-cylinder makes 256 horsepower and offers punchy acceleration around town. Even the lightest tap of the throttle results in quick acceleration. The engine does, however, seem to lose some of its gusto at highway speeds when trying to pass.

With only one engine, transmission (a five-speed automatic) and driveline configuration, the Tribeca's gas mileage is a somewhat unimpressive 16/21 mpg city/highway take it or leave it. Other crossovers have the option of more efficient front-wheel-drive models, and the Highlander has a base four-cylinder engine for the gas-conscious.

One of the Tribeca's strongest driving attributes is its ride quality; the suspension absorbs road imperfections with ease, making for a very comfortable commute.
