The third XM-Ready model, the progressive 2007 B9 Tribeca SUV, will be the first-ever Subaru to feature satellite radio when it goes on sale in June 2006. A new B9 Tribeca Special Edition model, introduced today at the Chicago International Auto Show, will also feature XM as standard equipment. Together, these three models comprised 50 percent of all U.S. sales for Subaru in 2005 -- a year during which the company also enjoyed its third consecutive all-time sales record.
