What engine comes with the 2019 Honda Passport?
While there are four trim levels available on the 2019 Passport, they all come with the same engine option. Every Passport driver, no matter their budget, will get the top available engine. The 2019 Passport comes fitted with a 280-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine that puts out 262 pound-foot of torque. When properly equipped with AWD, the 2019 Passport can tow up to 5,000 lbs.* The Passport is also respectably efficient as it averages up to 25 highway mpg**, 20 city mpg**, and 22 combined mpg* when equipped with 2WD.
All of that engine power is great, but what’s even better is that the 2019 Passport comes with a four-wheel independent suspension which is ideal for driving on off-road terrain. Combine all of this with a nine-speed transmission and you’ve got an exhilarating ride on your hands. Come to Matt Castrucci Honda to learn more about the new 2019 Passport!
