The Mazda Tribute has a lot in common with the Ford Escape.
The Mazda Tribute originally launched in 2001, sharing a platform and drivetrains with the Ford Escape.
The Tribute and Escape were co-developed by Mazda and Ford to give each company a small crossover SUV entry.
Visually, the Tribute shared most of its exterior sheet metal with the Escape. However, the Tribute did have a slightly different front fascia.
Most of the Tribute's cabin was also shared with its Ford cousin vehicle.
Like the Escape, the second-generation Tribute launched for the 2008 model year.
Again, the second-gen Tribute had its own front fascia to set itself apart from the Escape.
The Tribute was offered with a base four-cylinder engine and a V6.
A hybrid drivetrain was also offered in the Tribute.
The second-generation Tribute was available through the 2011 model year.
The Tribute was replaced by the CX-5 in the Mazda lineup.
