The Passport is a model in the line up of sports utility vehicles manufactured by the Japanese car company Honda. The relatively short run of 5 years (initially) saw two generations and several upgraded facelifts. Like many cars, Honda re-used a nameplate originally given to a motorcycle and before deciding upon ‘Passport’ considered ‘Elsinore’ and ‘Odyssey’ as other alternatives. The latter was later picked up and used for a minivan.
The Passport was the result of a partnership between Isuzu and Honda and created in a bid to meet new market demands and enter into the rapidly growing SUV division. Other vehicles manufactured by Honda and Isuzu were the Oasis (a passenger vehicle) and the Acura SLX (trucks). The partnership and by extension the Passport ended in 2002.
The first generation had three trim levels, DX, LX and EX. The DX had a 2.6-liter 4-cylinder engine with manual transmission, the LX had a 4 speed automatic transmission 4 wheel drive 3.2-liter V6 and the EX sported a 3.2-liter V6 with 4-wheel drive. There were several facelifts throughout the first generation which saw the addition of passenger airbags and the removal of the 2.6-liter engine.
The second-generation (released in 1997) dropped the DX trim, leaving just the LX and EX. Small cosmetic changes were made to include a two-tone exterior. In 2010 Honda issued a recall due to rust. Nearly 150,000 vehicles were recalled and in some cases, the damage was so severe that the company offered to buy back the cars from the customers.
After nearly two decades of absence, Honda brought back the Passport and debuted the new model at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November 2018. This was the first time the Passport had been designed and built in the US with production starting in Lincoln, Alabama. This new SUV faired well against its competitors, namely the Chevrolet Blazer, Ford Edge and Nissan Murano crossover.
The new trim levels were named Sport, EX-L, Touring and Elite, all with four-wheel drive as standard with all-wheel drive optional.
