Introducing The All-New 2019 Honda Passport in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota
Have you heard about Honda’s All-New rugged SUV? The 2019 Honda Passport in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota has been 17 years in the making, and we can’t wait to tell you all about its updated features and how they compare to competitors like the Ford Edge.
With more power to climb mountains and a longer range to travel from peak to peak, the Passport is the ultimate traveling companion instead of the Edge. This Honda’s 3.5 SOHC V6 engine produces a powerful 280 horsepower, which is 35 more than the Edge’s standard 2.0 turbo-four cyl. Along with its power, the gallon capacity on the Passport is 19.5 vs. the Edge’s 18.5, so you’ll have a longer range between fill-ups. And when you are filling up the tank, buying fuel will be easier because the Passport only needs regular unleaded gas for optimal performance. The Edge requires premium for maximum efficiency.
A huge inconvenience for most SUV’s is how loud the cabin is due to the wide-body frame, but the Passport has an electronically controlled liquid-filled main engine mount that almost wholly eliminates engine vibration. It does this by using computer-controlled electric currents to change the liquid’s viscosity to dampen the engine at all RPMs. You can travel on both highway and gravel road without having to yell for those in the cabin to hear you, but the Edge uses conventional rubber engine mounts, so you’ll still have to shout. Aside from having a quieter cabin, the Passport also has 6.3 inches more passenger space and leather-trimmed seating so everyone can enjoy the deluxe feel.
For those who wander, the Passport has a Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™ that can provide 3D renderings of the terrain and lane guidance, even in off-grid areas. It can do this because it uses satellite connectivity and a preloaded map database. And for when you’re on the grid, you can take advantage of the smartphone connectivity, which makes it easy to make phone calls, listen to your music library and more!
