The Grand Touring "s" model gets a 240-horsepower, 3.0L V6 with 6-speed automatic. The 4-cylinder automatic features an EPA rating of 20 mpg city and 28 highway, while the 6-cylinder achieves 18 mpg city and 26 highway.

This combination is capable of 34 mpg on the highway and an amazing 31 mpg city.
2016,
2016,Front-wheel-drive is standard across the line, but there is an available active torque-coupling 4-wheel drive system available. It reacts quickly, sending power to the wheels that have the greatest traction to avoid wheel slip. The system works especially well in low-traction road conditions.
2016,
2016,The Tribute's interior has seating for five adults and a center-console area that is large enough to store a laptop. With the 60/40-split back seat folded forward, the 29.2 cubic feet of cargo space can be expanded to 67.2 for large cargo.
2016,
2016,Front side airbags and side-curtain airbags are standard, as are dynamic stability control and roll stability control. The braking system employs discs in front and drums in back and a 4-channel anti-lock system with electronic brakeforce distribution across the lineup. The fully independent coil-spring suspension with rack-and-pinion steering helps provide good handling and roadholding, with enough durability and softness for unpaved roads
2016,
