Used Mazda Tribute
Find a Used Mazda Tribute Near Tampa at Cox Mazda
The Mazda Tribute was a compact SUV released between 2001 and 2011. Mazda marketed it as the Miata of SUVs and that was definitely the truth. This was an SUV with agile handling and powerful performance. Mazda decided to release the Mazda CX-5 in lieu of another Tribute generation, but a used Mazda Tribute still makes for a great car. Here’s a look at what you might find at our Tampa-area used car dealer.
Second Generation Mazda Tribute (2008 to 2011)
Mazda Tribute generations were divided into i and s models based on whether they had a four-cylinder engine or a V6. These were further subdivided into Sport, Touring, and Ground Touring trims. All-wheel drive was available with either engine.
The smaller engine was originally a 2.3L four-cylinder capable of 153 hp. Starting in 2009, Mazda introduced a 2.5L four-cylinder capable of 171 hp. The V6 was originally a 3.0L capable of 200 hp, but was also improved in 2009 to be capable of 240 hp. In 2009, Mazda released a hybrid version of the Tribute capable of up to 32 mpg.
First Generation Mazda Tribute (2001 to 2006)
The earlier Mazda Tribute models were divided the same way between four-cylinder and V6, except the trims were named DX, LX, and ES. Starting in 2005, Mazda switched to just i and s trims. The four-cylinder was originally a smaller 2.0L four-cylinder capable of 130 hp, but was replaced by the 2.3L engine found in the first second generation models. The bigger engine was the 3.0L V6 for the duration of the generation.
These Mazdas were very popular at the time, and a Tribute equipped with the V6 will still be quite fun to drive. The major difference between the two generations is the second offers more power and a nicer interior.
