Tribeca – generation-two is much better

Tribeca – generation-two is much better

Apart from the very odd aviation-styled front end of the old Tribeca there wasn’t that much wrong. It did only have a 3-litre motor to lug its vast mass around, but it was comfortable and had a handy DVD player to keep the rear seat passengers occupied. The new Tribeca gives us another 600cc of acceleration pleasure, and a natty touchscreen in the dash with a calculator/converter so I can tell how many acres in a square millimetre. That is very useful, but not as useful (or welcome) as the reversing camera is to make backing much more pleasant in such a large vehicle.
