Prepare For The All-New 2019 Honda Passport. It is Honda’s turn to play the nostalgia cardgame.
Earlier this season, rumors surfaced that Honda was intending to renew the “Passport” title to get a brand new two-row crossover. The newest Passport will sit between the CR-V and Pilot in Honda’s lineup, rivaling versions such as the Ford Edge and Hyundai Santa Fe. Now, we have discovered that those rumors, in reality, accurate with Honda teasing a movie along with a set of pictures of this new Passport. The 2019 Honda Passport is going to be shown on November 27 in the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show together with a live flow on Honda’s YouTube station.
What we know up to now about the newest Passport is constrained. Additionally, it”will be set between CR-V and Pilot in Honda’s light-truck lineup,” although the short teaser makes it look nearer into the Pilot in dimension. The movie teaser is supposed to reveal that the Passport’s”on- and – off-road capacities,” therefore it will have the capability to be rockier than the CR-V or Pilot.
The older Passport was basically a rebadged Isuzu Rodeo, however, this one will probably be constructed in the house at Honda’s Lincoln, Alabama plantlife. With the aid of the Chevy Blazer and Ford Bronco, automakers are scrambling to cash in on the nostalgia card by simply imitating old version names. Though we do find it intriguing Honda would opt to bring back an SUV which was only a rebadged Isuzu.
It may be worse, but at least Honda did not do exactly what Mitsubishi did using all the Eclipse Cross and deliver an older sports car name straight in the deceased to utilize to a crossover. We could almost imagine the collective mad teenager from fans who’d freak out at the notion of a Prelude or even S2000 crossover resurrection. Engine alternatives remain a puzzle but we’re holding out hope that the newest Passport could include some significant power. Honda appears to be advertising such as of an off-road oriented crossover however we are going to have to wait to view it the person in LA.
“The newest Passport is a personal, strong and off-road-capable SUV that hits the sweet spot between regular driving relaxation and weekend off-road, all-weather adventure capacity, with customer demand for SUVs continued to rise, the fresh adventure-ready Passport will solidify our lineup, bringing new buyers and maintaining existing clients at the Honda family” explained Henio Arcangeli, Jr., senior vice president of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. & General Manager, Honda Division.
