This compact SUV from Mazda had a production run from 2000 to 2011. Mazda developed it jointly with Ford using the FWD Mazda 626 platform and the Ford CD2 platform. The results were the Mazda Tribute, Ford Escape, and Mercury Mariner. The final production models were first debuted at the 2000 Los Angeles Auto Show as part of a range to compete in the newly formed “compact crossover” segment created by Toyota and its RAV4.
The powertrain offerings upon launch in 2000 included a Ford Zetec 2.0L 4-cylinder engine or a 3.0L V6 Ford Duratec. The mechanics behind the Mazda and Ford models were very similar throughout, with the most notable difference being that the Mazda Tribute had a harder, sportier suspension, which was all part of Mazda’s athletic “zoom zoom” image at that time.
The early models got a facelift in 2004, where the Mazda Tribute models received a new 2.3L base engine --- 153-hp and 152 lb-ft of torque --- while keeping the 3.0L V6 as an option. The new engine also delivered an automatic transmission option.
The second generation brought pleasing upgrades to engine power while actually improving overall fuel economy by 1-mpg across the board to get 22-mpg in the city and 28-mpg on the highway. Sedan-like fuel economy made the Tribute a popular choice when other options were typically below the 20-mpg mark. It was particularly popular in the Australian market.
The changes for the second generation also included daytime running lights, a new 6-speed automatic transmission on the V6 models (optional on the 4-cylinder models), new rear stabilizer bars, new seat designs, and wheel-mounted audio controls as an option.
Eventually, the Mazda Tribute was replaced by the Mazda CX-5 in the North and South American Markets, with the Mazda CX-7 in Asia, and the Mazda CX-4 in China.
