2010 MAZDA TRIBUTE: RUGGED GOOD LOOKS MEETS WITH SUV FUNCTIONALITY
The Tribute HEV offers superior environmental performance with its 2.5-liter gasoline engine. The Atkinson cycle modifies the timing of the closing of the valves, enabling the engine to realize more power with cleaner emissions. At low speeds or in low-load situations, drive is provided by a permanent magnet AC synchronous electric motor, producing 70 kW @ 5,000 rpm and 330 V maximum voltage.
Tribute HEVís 2.5-liter DOHC 16-valve Atkinson cycle four-cylinder engine seamlessly engages, contributing 153 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 136 lb.-ft of torque at 4,250 rpm. As a result, the Tribute HEV pushes out a combined 177-hp, with 0-60 times comparable to a 200-horsepower V-6 engine, while increasing city-driving fuel economy by nearly 75-percent. Fuel economy for a front-wheel drive Tribute HEV equipped with automatic transmission is 34/31 mpg (city/highway). The Tribute HEV is equipped with a smooth-shifting, electronically controlled Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) that realizes seamless, highly efficient adjustment of the gear ratio under electronic control.
