Honda brings back the Passport nameplate. The 2019 Honda Passport is no longer a body-on-frame SUV like the old model, however. Underneath, the new Passport is basically a Honda Pilot with a bit of a lift, which means that it's a crossover with unibody construction. And, instead of three rows of seating like the Pilot, the Passport is a two-row, five-passenger SUV. Dan Edmunds, director of vehicle testing, takes a look at the exterior dimensions, the interior features, and everything that makes the Passport a unique offering in the middle of Honda's SUV lineup.

Q: How big is the Honda Passport?
A: The Passport is 190.5 inches long. That means that it's 6 inches shorter than the Pilot it's based on and 10 inches longer than the compact CR-V. It sits an inch higher off the ground than the Pilot does, which should increase off-road capability.

Q: What kind of engine does it get?
A: The Passport only has one engine: the same 3.5-liter V6 you get in the Pilot. It's available with front- or all-wheel drive, and every Passport comes with a nine-speed automatic transmission. The six-cylinder engine that powers the Passport is rated at 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque.

Q: Is it well-equipped?
A: Depending on what trim level you go with, the Passport comes with all sorts of equipment. Base levels get the Honda Sensing safety suite, which includes items such as forward collision warning and lane departure warning. Higher trim levels include creature comforts such as ventilated seats and a heated steering wheel.

Q: How much will it cost?
A: Honda hasn't released full pricing details on the Passport yet, but just like its dimensions, we expect the Passport's price to slide right in between the Pilot and the CR-V. The CR-V starts around $26,000, while the Pilot starts closer to $33,000.
