2020 Toyota RAV4 in Klamath Falls OR: Does the 2020 Honda Passport Come Out On Top?

March 15th, 2019 by

Toyota has revealed a special TRD Off-Road version of the 2020 Toyota RAV4 in Klamath Falls OR at the Chicago Auto Show. The beefed-up crossover received an improved suspension, black exterior trim, and other updates compared to the standard model. In contrast, reinventing the off-road formula previously imagined with the use of the rebadged Isuzu Rodeo, Honda introduced the 2020 Honda Passport in Klamath Falls OR.

Large, ground-clinging 20-inch wheels are standard on the 2020 Honda Passport. With these 245/50R all-weather tires, the Passport most certainly feels like a grown up. Though the wheels will be the same size across all Passport models, each trim level will feature its own unique wheel design. In addition, the Passport comes equipped with a fantastic 3.5-liter, V-6 engine with 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque.

The Passport invites a far more adventurous lot to our showroom compared to other Honda models.  It tends to appeal greatly to growing families thanks to its size and variety of standard equipment. Even the lower trim levels are rather nicely equipped. Other reasons the 2019 Honda Passport appeals to growing families include:

  • Ample cargo space, even with all seats in the upright position
  • Powerful engine options on all trim levels
  • Enough room for the whole family without being too large and difficult to maneuver
  • The lineup includes several standard features
  • Impressive optional packages are offered that can appeal to any driver
  • Falls in line with Honda’s long-standing reputation for reliability
  • Available at an affordable price point

Details on the new-generation 2020 Toyota RAV4 in Klamath Falls OR is limited, but information is slowly becoming available. The RAV4’s powertrain remains limited, but it will come standard with a 2.5-liter Dynamic Force four-cylinder engine and a direct-shift eight-speed automatic transmission. The optional power plant will pair this four-cylinder engine with the Toyota Hybrid System II and continuously variable transmission for enhanced fuel economy.

The new-generation Toyota RAV4 will come standard with the newest Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 system, meaning automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, lane-departure alert with steering assist, automatic high-beam headlights, lane-tracing assist, and road-sign assist are all included.

RAV4 TRD Off-Road’s subtle styling differences include dark-gray front and rear lower fascias, LED fog lights and numerous black-painted accents. Larger overfenders cover flow-formed, matte-black 18-inch TRD alloy wheels wrapped in aggressive Falken WILDPEAK A/T Trail tires. Inside, black SofTex® 41 TRD front seats with extra bolstering add function, and red stitching on the dash and seat surfaces finishes out the interior.

Though the 2020 Toyota RAV4 in Klamath Falls OR is an impressive vehicle, the Honda Passport comes out far ahead.  Its competitors don’t stand a chance against the Passport. The Passport offers a much smoother ride, better safety technology, and more interior space. Not to mention Honda has one of the most trusted reputations for reliability of all today’s auto manufacturers.
