Providing the same size and convenience as the regular Tribute, but with the added environmental benefits of a hybrid powertrain. The Tribute's hybrid drivetrain generates 155 net horsepower and is controlled by a continuously variable automatic transmission. Available in both two and four wheel drive, the Tribute HEV can be driven at speeds up to 25 mph on electric power alone, and regenerative braking helps to recharge the battery in traffic. Standard safety features include four-wheel antilock disc brakes, dual front, side and curtain airbags, and tire pressure monitoring.
