A freshening for the 2005 Tribute sport-utility vehicle includes a host of minor styling updates along with a modified suspension. Offered in both front- and four-wheel-drive versions, the line has been simplified to include just two trim levels. A new 153-horsepower 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine in the base "i" version adds 23 horses for '05, while the carryover 200-horsepower 3.0-liter V-6 powers the top "s" model. Both engines can be mated to either a standard five-speed manual or optional four-speed automatic transmission. Anti-lock brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution are now standard, and a new four-wheel-drive system features Active Torque Control Coupling, which manages the amount of engine torque that's sent to the rear wheels on a real-time basis as needed to maintain traction.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
