Honda is ready for an adventure. The Japanese carmaker recently announced the newest addition to its lineup – the 2019 Honda Passport.
The 2019 Honda Passport debut occurred in November. This model, which will sit between the compact CR-V and three-row Pilot in the Honda SUV lineup, will offer a combination of refined on-road driving and off-road capability.
This model will come standard with a 3.5-liter V6 engine, which will put out 280 horsepower. It will come mated to the latest-generation nine-speed automatic transmission and will also have available all-wheel drive. Every model will come standard with the Honda Sensing suite of safety technologies, including Collision Mitigation, along with 20-inch alloy wheels and three-zone automatic climate control.
Better yet, the model will have spacious underfloor cargo storage (2.5 cubic feet), while also offering roomy passenger space of 115.9 cubic feet and total interior volume of 157.1 cubic feet.
The 2019 Passport will have four trim levels: Sport, EX-L, Touring, and Elite. Each model with the exception of the Elite can have either two- or all-wheel drive. The Elite trim will come standard with all-wheel drive.
This off-road-ready SUV was designed by Honda’s North American R&D teams in Torrance, California and Raymond, Ohio. It will be manufactured alongside its V6 engine in Honda’s Lincoln, Alabama manufacturing plant.
