Keep reading to see if this new compact crossover (that fits between the CR-V and Pilot in the Honda SUV lineup) may be exactly what you are looking for.
2019 Honda Passport Engine Output
Drivers with a craving for power will be able to enjoy standard V-6 engine output on the 2019 Honda Passport. This new model’s 3.5-liter V-6 will offer 280 peak horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. This engine will be mated to the latest-generation of Honda’s nine-speed automatic transmission. When properly equipped, the 2019 Honda Passport should be able to offer up to 3,500 pounds of towing with front-wheel drive models and 5,000 pounds for all-wheel drive models.
Off-Road Advantages of the 2019 Honda Passport
While the bold standard engine of the 2019 Honda Passport will go a long way to making this crossover capable in many demanding driving environments, this model will also offer other advantages. When equipped with available I-VTM4™ all-wheel drive, the 2019 Passport will use active torque vectoring to send critical toque exactly where it needs to go to offer good traction. Up to 70 percent of torque can be sent to the rear axle, and 100 of that can be designated for the right or left rear wheels.
Intelligent Traction Management will also be standard on all models of the 2019 Honda Passport, whether or not they are equipped with all-wheel drive. This system even allows drivers to choose settings for normal or snowy driving conditions.
The 2019 Honda Passport will also come standard with the Honda Sensing suite of driver assistance features and plenty of other technology advantages. Keep watching this blog for more information, or contact a representative at Battison Honda to get personalized updates.
