2019 Honda Passport Preview
The all-new 2019 Honda Passport has created quite a buzz since it was unveiled at this year’s Los Angeles Auto Show. This midsize 2-row SUV is slotted between the CR-V and the Pilot and features a rugged and sporty exterior design, a powerful V6 engine, and a wide array of premium features that Pine Grove drivers are sure to be thrilled with. We’re expecting the new Passport to arrive here at Klamath Falls Honda in February of 2019, so contact us to be one of the first to get behind the wheel of this exciting new Honda SUV. In the meantime, explore the performance capabilities, interior dimensions, and standard and available features of the new Passport today.
Honda Passport Engines, Horsepower & Towing Capacity
All available trim levels of the new 2019 Passport feature:
- Engine: 3.5L i-VTEC® V6
- Horsepower: 280 hp
- Torque: 262 lb-ft
- Transmission: 9-speed automatic transmission
All models also feature Intelligent Traction Management (ITM) and can be equipped with the Honda i-VTM4™ all-wheel drive system, which comes standard on the Elite trim. When properly equipped, the maximum towing capacity for FWD models is 3,500 lbs, while AWD models can tow up to 5,000 lbs. That’s plenty of power for Oretech drivers to haul a trailer or boat out to Lake of the Woods in the Southern Cascades.
Honda Passport Features & Interior Dimensions
Every Honda Passport SUV comes with a long list of features that will make a drive across town in Altamont or a road trip to the Columbia River Gorge all the more enjoyable. Standard Honda Passport features include:
- Three-zone automatic climate control.
- Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™
- Multi-Information Display (MID) with customizable features
- Bluetooth® phone and audio
- Honda Sensing® suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies

The new Passport offers a best-in-class interior volume of 157.1 cubic feet and a best-in-class passenger volume of 115.9 cubic feet. It also provides a maximum cargo space of 77.9 cubic feet, more than enough for stowing weekend adventure gear or simply transporting groceries home from Sherm’s Thunderbird Market.
Honda Passport vs. Honda Pilot: How Do They Compare?
How does the Passport compare to the Honda Pilot? The Passport is smaller with two rows and a 5-passenger seating capacity, as opposed to the three rows and 8-passenger capacity of the Pilot. Its smaller size makes it the more agile of the two vehicles, and with 0.8 inches more ground clearance than the Pilot, it’s the better choice if you’re planning on driving off-road. Both SUVs come with a similar list of standard features and share the same platform, engine, and transmission. As you can see, these Hondas both have a lot to offer, so choosing the one that’s best for you will just depend on your personal needs and preferences.
