Under the Hood
When you pop open the hood of the 2019 Honda Passport, you’ll find a 280-horsepower 3.5L V6 engine. This powerful engine allows for an available maximum towing capacity of 5,000 pounds, so you can tow your fishing boat. When the Passport is equipped with two-wheel drive, you can except an EPA-estimated 20 MPG city and 25 MPG highway.1
The V6 engine found in the 2019 Honda Pilot is very similar, offering the same horsepower and an EPA-estimated 19 MPG city and 27 MPG highway.2 The Pilot, when equipped with all-wheel drive, also has a towing capacity of 5,000 pounds.
Clearly, the engines of these two Honda vehicles are very similar. No matter which SUV you chose, you will be getting an impressive towing capacity and pleasing gas mileage.
Room for Everyone
A major appeal of SUVs is the amount of cargo space and seating available. Both the Pilot and the Passport offer different seating and cargo options, so you and your passengers can enjoy a comfortable ride.
The Honda Passport features seating for five passengers and boasts over 100 cubic feet of cargo space with the 60/40 split rear seatback folded over. To up your cabin space, there is underfloor storage to stash items out of the way during travel. If you’re going camping and need extra space, roof rails on the top of your car can support up to 165 pounds of gear.
If you have a larger family, the Honda Pilot offers seating for up to eight passengers with multiple seating configurations, which allows you to comfortably arrange the cabin. The Pilot also features a 60/40 split but provides more cargo room with 109 cubic feet. Roof racks are also available with bike rack and ski attachments.
2019 Honda Passport vs Honda Pilot: Safety
Honda vehicles are known for being safe cars, and the 2019 Honda Passport and Honda Pilot are no exception. They offer standard safety features, such as a Multi-Angle Rearview Camera and Honda Sensing®. Included with Honda Sensing® is:

- Road Departure Mitigation System: Warns you when you’re leaving your intended lane and can provide gentile steering to put you back on track.
