Here it is — Honda Passport

2019 Honda Passport with Accessory Roof Rack

Speaking of off-road, the Passport certainly looks ready to hit the trails. Front-drive Passports can lug a 3,500-pound trailer, while all-wheel-drive versions are rated at 5,000 pounds.

Five people easily fit inside of the Passport, sitting on cloth upholstery with Sport trim and perforated leather in EX-L, Touring, and Elite trims. It's still not a rock crawler like a Jeep Grand Cherokee, but it should take you further down a rocky road than any Honda SUV before it.

Rounding out the list of features inconceivable when the Isuzu Rodeo-based Honda Passport SUV first arrived in the mid-1990s is a standard 7.0-inch configurable TFT screen in the vehicle's instrument cluster.

Inside, Honda claims class-leading space, including 3,289 litres in passenger volume and a total interior volume of 4,449 litres.

On the technology front, the Passport Sport is equipped with a 6-speaker audio system and a Bluetooth-enabled radio with a 5-inch display. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay will also be included while features like wireless phone charging, embedded LTE with Wi-Fi hotspot and a blind spot warnings are optional.

While the Pilot is sold unashamedly as a family hauler with a slight dash of off-roading ability, the Passport is playing up its off-road chops, with the company stating shorter rear overhang means "improved approach, departure and breakover angles, [making it] suitable for more rugged terrain".

Since the Passport was created to venture off-road, all models are equipped with an Intelligent Traction Management system which has normal, sand, snow and mud modes on all-wheel drive variants. The all-wheel-drive system can send up to 70 percent of the engine's output to individual rear wheels and comes with four modes including sand, snow and mud. Honda is launching a range of accessories for the 2019 Passport out of the gate, too, so buyers won't need to wait for third-party roof racks, boxes, and other add-ons to catch up.

All models come with Honda's suite of safety aids as standard, including lane-keeping assistance, adaptive cruise control and low-speed automatic emergency braking.

There are now no plans to bring the Passport to the UK.

The 2019 Honda Passport is scheduled to go on sale early in 2019.
