Honda Teases New Passport SUV Ahead Of LA Debut

19passport-teaser-02

The new SUV Honda has is called the Passport, and it will sit between the CR-V and the Pilot in the Honda line. Honda teased the forthcoming mid-size crossover SUV on Thursday (#ThrowbackThursday) and announced the model will make its global debut at the 2018 Los Angeles auto show.

Expect the Passport and Pilot to have more in common this time around. The sizing pegs it squarely as a rival to the Ford Edge, Nissan Murano, and soon-to-launch Chevrolet Blazer.

Honda's USA dealers are getting their first chance to see the Passport at a meeting in San Francisco Thursday, a Honda spokeswoman said. Honda sold the original Passport, essentially a rebadged Isuzu Rodeo, from model years 1994 through 2002.


Remember the Honda Passport of the 1990s?

US sales of midsize crossovers have climbed 3.8 percent this year in an overall market that has expanded just 0.5 percent. Honda hasn't released any details about the Passport yet, but says it will be "adventure-ready", "off-road capable", and that it was both designed and will be built in the USA, right alongside the Pilot in Alabama. In 2017, more than 90 percent of all Honda brand vehicles sold in the USA were made in North America, using domestic and globally sourced parts. Honda will build the Passport alongside the Pilot in the company's Lincoln, Alabama plant, which suggests the two SUVs may share parts.
