A higher starting price compared to other mid-size crossovers makes the Tribeca a harder sell, but you do get a lot of features even in base guise.

Expert Quotes:

The base Tribeca is confusingly called Premium
Car and Driver

buttons are difficult to read in daylight conditions, and the curved panel shape further hampers readability and operation
Edmunds

The vertical vents in the middle of the dashboard can't be turned off individually, and the horizontal one atop the dash seems destined to be used as a spot for a coffee cup, leading to an inevitable spill into the ventilation system.

The 2013 Tribeca is carried over essentially unchanged from 2012, so there's nothing especially new or noteworthy in its feature set. There is one key difference, though: While last year there were Premium, Limited, and Touring trims offered, this year it's only offered in its mid-range Limited trim.

As such, fog lights, 18-inch wheels, power driver and passenger seats, and heated front seats are all standard, as well as Bluetooth hands-free connectivity for the stereo, a moonroof, leather upholstery, and roof rails. A 50/50 split third-row seat back and rear climate-control system are included, too. The optional 385-watt sound system comes with ten speakers and satellite radio tuning. A navigation system with reverse camera remains optional, too. 

 

Conclusion

A higher starting price compared to other mid-size crossovers makes the Tribeca a harder sell, but you do get a lot of features even in base guise.

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.
