The 2019 Honda Passport was built to be able to get a bit dirty in off-road environments and, as a result, it offers a larger engine than its current Honda CR-V sibling. Under the hood of each of Honda’s latest crossover SUV in our showroom is a naturally aspirated 3.5-liter, V-6 engine attached to a nine-speed automatic transmission. All trims will produce 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Versions of the 2019 Passport with two-wheel-drive can tow 3,500 pounds and adding all-wheel-drive will bump that capacity up to 5,000 pounds.
Customers who may be more inclined to take the 2019 Honda CR-V home will have a couple power plant options available. The entry-level base LX model employs a naturally aspirated 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine that will make 184 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. For a bit more performance, the EX, EX-L and Touring trims use a turbocharged, 1.5-liter, four-cylinder engine and it will make 190 horsepower and 179 pound-feet of torque. Both power plants use a continuously variable transmission.
