AutoWeek is reporting that Subaru expects to sell 18,000 B9 Tribecas in the truncated 2005 sales year it will have. A full 2006 brings them expectations of 36,000 B9s, or Tribecas or B9 Tribecas. We're guessing the most common name people will utter is "That thing," with an outreached finger. The B9 is so radically different than anything on the road it is bound to draw attention. We're just not quite sure if that will be a good or a bad thing. But those that don't love the new Jeep Grand Cherokee's direction with bigger and more expensive models, might like this space-age, AWD, optional seven-seater starting at just under $32,000. What do you think? Hit or miss?
