When you travel in the 2019 Honda Passport, you will find it to be a comfortable way to get around. While the high-tech amenities will please the most urban of your loved ones, the athletic engineering will encourage the more adventurous travelers to explore further.
Conquer Any Terrain
Slick rain-soaked highways in Jacksonville or off-road trails around Lake City prove little match for the torque-vectoring All-Wheel Drive system of the Passport. This feature sends the precise amount of torque to each wheel to maximize grip. Give it a hand by pushing the Intelligent Traction Management button, which includes Sand, Mud, and Snow Modes. While you won’t find any snow around St. Augustine, the standard all-season tires can negotiate all types of terrain during any season.
Power Behind Performance
Promoting the road trials of the 2019 Honda Passport is the 3.5-liter V6 that exerts 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Backing this endeavor are Direct Fuel Injection, Intelligent Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control, and a nine-speed automatic transmission that relies on an innovative shift-management system for multiple-gear downshifts. EPA-fuel efficiency achieves 25 MPG on the highway and 20 MPG city1, and towing capacity ranges from 3,500 pounds for the Two-Wheel Drive and 5,000 pounds for the All-Wheel Drive.
Up to five adults will appreciate the luxurious feel of available leather-upholstered seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The available ventilation built into the front row provides cooling for you and your front passenger. With available Tri-Zone Automatic Climate Control, everybody gets their separate temperature to automatically compensate for weather fluctuations. The handy multi-functional center console has enough room for a tablet and a USB charging station. Its beverage holders are illuminated to make dispensing of your drink easier with clear visibility.
Combine your compatible smartphone with the eight-inch Display Audio System, and you’ll be able to make phone calls, check your text messages, or listen to your playlist through the touchscreen. If your device is Qi-compatible, you can recharge it without wires or port by using the wireless charging pad. The available Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System shows road signs, lane guidance, and three-dimensional renditions of buildings to help take you to your destination.
Converting to Cargo
Fold-down the rear seatback into a 60/40 split and cargo volume jumps from 41.2 to 100.7 cubic feet. When your hands are full and you need to load the rear, a swipe of your foot under the rear bumper sensor opens the Hands-Free Power Tailgate automatically. Of course, you’ll need to have the specially coded key fob with you for this to work. When you need more secure storage, you’ll discover multiple compartments under the cargo floor that handle the spare tire, repair tools, and anything else that you want to keep out of sight.
Your Safer Ride
Driving from Waycross to Brunswick becomes even more secure when you are in the 2019 Honda Passport. To guard you and your passengers against harm, the Honda Sensing® system on all trims depends on an array of devices to monitor your surroundings and then warn you via driver assist features. The Collision Mitigation Braking System™ can determine if you’re about to hit the vehicle in front of you and applies brake pressure to prevent a crash.
You’ll no longer be in danger of drowsily drifting out of your lane or off the road with these two technologies. The Lane Keep Assist System adjusts steering to keep you in your lane, and the Road Departure Mitigation System provides braking and steering assistance to bring you back in line when you wander across the road without a turn signal.
