2008-2011
2008 Redesign Year
Electronic stability control became standard for 2008, rectifying the tip-up problem noted in the 2005 ' 2007 models. The Tribute's sensible size, roomy interior and good visibility remain intact.
However, though it was improved with the 2008 freshening, the interior is still somewhat subpar. Fit and finish issues include uneven gaps and exposed screws. Model year 2011 was the last for the Tribute.

2001-2007
2001 Redesign Year
Co-developed by Ford and Mazda, first-generation models had sound handling and braking, impressive cabin space, and adequate acceleration with the optional 3.0-liter V6. Downsides include a stiff ride and noisy interior.
Other engine choices included a 2.0-liter four-cylinder, and a Hybrid that arrived in 2005 to return 26 mpg in our tests. Major virtues include commodious cabin space and quick acceleration (in V6 models). However, these are offset by a stiff ride, a noisy interior and flimsy plastic trim. A tip-up in the government rollover test and a Poor in the IIHS side-crash test without side and curtain airbags are concerns.
