The New 2019 Honda Passport Arrives Next Year!
You’ve seen the teasers and heard the rumors. Let’s make it official. The new 2019 Honda Passport is coming soon to Jay Wolfe Honda! It’s the latest model to be added to the Honda lineup, packed with awesome features and as reliable as any Honda.
The Passport slots in between the compact Honda CR-V and the three-row Pilot. And whether you’re looking for an SUV for the family or an adventure vehicle in Missouri, it’s the right size for the job. Check out some of the top features in the Passport, coming soon to Jay Wolfe Honda.
Key Features for the 2019 Honda Passport
Sporty styling, standard 20-inch wheels, LED headlight accents, and bits of chrome and gloss black give the 2019 Passport riveting appeal. Ground clearance is more than on the Pilot while shortened overhangs improve approach, breakover, and departure angles. It makes the Passport look perfectly at home offroad, and comfortable on the road as well.
It’s no coincidence that ‘sport’ is part of the name ‘Passport’. Packed under the hood of the 2019 Passport is Honda’s proven 280-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 i-VTEC engine. With 262 lb.-ft. of torque, this engine enables the Passport to accelerate quickly and tackle any load with ease. Front-wheel-drive models have max towing capacity of 3,500 pounds while an AWD version ramps it up to 5,000 pounds!
That AWD system made available on the 2019 Honda Passport is Honda’s i-VTM4 system. Using torque vectoring to send up to 70 percent of engine torque to the rear wheels, it’s one of the best in the business.
Standard on both FWD and AWD models, is Intelligent Traction Management, giving you customizable control depending on weather and terrain.
A sophisticated interior design mimics Honda cues in other models like the Pilot. And with comfortable seating for five, available interior comforts, and configurable seating, the 2019 Honda Passport is bound to be a popular choice.
One of the most impressive aspects of the interior is its class-leading storage. A best-in-class interior volume of 157.1 cu. ft., including 77.9 cu. ft. with the second row folded flat, allows the Passport to accommodate all the sports gear or reno materials you can want.
All the Best Safety Tech
Of course, the newest Honda model will have the newest tech available. Not only will the Display Audio system include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, but will have available gesture control. A 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot is available with support for up to seven devices simultaneously also.
Honda Sensing technologies will be standard on all Passport trims including Collision Mitigation Braking System, Forward Collision Warning, Road Departure Mitigation, Lane Keeping Assist System, Adaptive Cruise Control, and more.
Expect to see the 2019 Honda Passport hit showrooms early in 2019. And when they do, you’ll find yours right here in Kansas City, MO at Jay Wolfe Honda.
