One of our favorite marque-specific, indie buff books, SubieSport, let a couple images slip of Subaru's warmed over 2008 B9 Tribeca.

Due to be shown on Wednesday at the New York Auto Show, the reworked SUV gets a new nose that's eerily reminiscent of Chrysler's Pacifica (with a little Touareg thrown in), dispatching the Edsel-like front grille that has caught the ire of several journos and consumers. The rear gets a mild tweaking as well, with a few more angles on the tail lamps and hatch.

As expected, a new 3.6L H6 finds its way underhood, developing 256 HP at 6,000 RPM (up from 250 HP) and 247 lb.-ft. of torque. Apparently, the five-speed autobox has also benefited from some additional engineering, with new programming that should make good use of the extra twist.

SubieSport's got all the technical details here, along with an a few pics.

Top tip, Jeffrey!
