2019 Honda Passport Is For Anyone Who Wants A Larger CR-V

https://www.carscoops.com/2018/11/2019-honda-passport-anyone-wants-larger-cr-v/

Honda’s 2019 Passport crossover is scheduled to go on sale early next year. Until then, potential buyers can admire it in person by visiting the LA Auto Show, open November 30th until December 9th.

According to Honda, the Passport can provide a unique blend of “on-road driving refinement and off-road adventure capability.” It’s also been described as larger and more rugged than the CR-V, yet smaller and sportier than the Pilot.

Speaking of rugged looks, the Passport comes with black plastic body cladding, generous ground clearance, LED lighting units, a dual exhaust system and standard 20-inch alloy wheels. For the LA Auto Show, Honda went with sort of a dark themed spec, boasting a dark grey exterior, black wheels, black mirror covers, black accessories and tinted windows.



Plenty of decent onboard tech

The cabin of the Passport resembles that of the larger Pilot, while available features include an 8-inch infotainment display (on EX-L specs and higher), tri-zone automatic climate control, heated leather seats, a moonroof, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, power front seats, and a rearview camera with dynamic guidelines.

Opt for either a Touring or Elite variant and you gain ambient interior lighting, a ten-speaker audio system, heated rear seats, gloss black interior trim and 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot.

The Passport, which shares most of its underpinnings with the Pilot and Ridgeline, is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 gasoline engine, producing 280 HP (283 PS) and 262 lb-ft (354 Nm) of torque, channeled through a nine-speed automatic and an optional torque vectoring all-wheel drive system.

2019 Honda Passport Is Here To Fill The Gap Between The CR-V And Pilot

https://www.carscoops.com/2018/11/2019-honda-passport-fill-gap-cr-v-pilot/

Consumers can’t seem to get enough crossovers and Honda is happy to oblige as it has resurrected the Passport moniker on an all-new model which will slot in between the CR-V and Pilot.

Set to go on sale early next year, the 2019 Passport is larger and more rugged than the CR-V but sportier and more compact than the Pilot. As a result, the model promises to provide a unique blend of “on-road driving refinement and off-road adventure capability.”



Sporting a matte black grille that the echoes the Ridgeline, the Passport features a rugged exterior with black plastic body cladding, an increased ride height and standard 20-inch alloy wheels. The model also comes equipped with LED lighting units and a dual exhaust system with chrome tips.

Moving into the cabin, drivers will find a Pilot-like interior with a four-spoke steering wheel and a 7-inch display in the instrument cluster. The Passport also features a tri-zone automatic climate control system and a six-speaker audio system with a 5-inch display.

Higher-end variants pack on the features as the mid-level Passport EX-L has heated leather seats, a moonroof and an 8-inch Display Audio system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. The model also boasts power front seats, HomeLink and a rearview camera with dynamic guidelines.



Touring and Elite variants go even further as they have GPS navigation, ambient interior lighting and a ten-speaker premium audio system.  Other highlights include heated rear seats, gloss black interior trim and a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot.

In terms of practicality, the Passport has best-in-class passenger room and total interior space. There’s 41.2 cubic feet (1,166 liters) of room behind the rear seats, but that can be expanded to 77.9 cubic feet (2,205 liters) when the seats are folded down at the push of a button. If that’s not enough room, there’s an additional 2.5 cubic feet (70.8 liters) of storage space underneath the rear floor.



Power comes from a 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces 280 hp (208 kW / 283 PS) and 262 lb-ft (354 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a nine-speed automatic transmission which can be paired to an optional torque vectoring all-wheel drive system.

Since the Passport was designed to venture off-road, all models are equipped with an Intelligent Traction Management system which has normal, sand, snow and mud modes on all-wheel drive variants. Honda says the system helps to make the Passport “more capable off-road” than many other competing crossovers.

Speaking of capability, the Passport rides on Honda’s Global Light Truck platform and shares much of its underlying structure with the Pilot and Ridgeline. Thanks in part to this rugged construction, the Passport can tow up to 5,000 lbs (2,268 kg) when properly equipped.

Honda Begins Production Of 2019 Passport In Alabama

https://www.carscoops.com/2018/12/honda-begins-production-2019-passport-alabama/

Honda has started mass production of the new 2019 Passport SUV in their Alabama factory, ahead of a sales launch early next year.

The start of the new Passport’s production was celebrated by more than 1,500 associates at the facility, which will be the exclusive factory for the new Honda SUV.

Revealed last month at the LA Auto Show, the new Honda Passport will slot between the CR-V and the Pilot as the company’s more adventurous SUV in the range.



“The positive response to Passport really signals Honda is poised to compete in this segment,” said Lara Harrington, Chief Engineer and Passport Development Leader. “The Honda Passport is designed to bring a more personal, rugged and off-road SUV to our award- winning light truck lineup and we are all excited to see where this new product will take us.”



Power comes from Honda’s 3.5-liter V6 with 280hp and 262lb-ft of torque, paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission. The optional i-VTM4 all-wheel drive system features active torque vectoring to send up to 70 percent of the torque to the rear axle, and 100 percent of the torque to either the left or the right rear wheel.

Honda describes the new Passport as its “most rugged light truck yet”; ground clearance is up by 0.5 inches on FWD models and up by 1.1 inches on AWD models compared to the bigger Pilot, with which it shares most of its underpinnings.
