2023 Honda Passport Spied With A More Rugged Look

2023 Honda Passport  – Recently, the new Honda Passport 2023 was tested in a ruggeder style. We can see that the prototype was spotted with limited camouflage and where improvements will be made. We don’t expect anything significant, but we do see a mid-life facelift.

We know that Honda will change the Passport’s design and adopt a ruggeder design, which should be inspired by Ridgeline pickup trucks. The 3.5-liter V6 engine that powers the Honda Passport will be used in all future models. It produces 280 horsepower and 262 lb. ft (355 Nm) of torque. We are eager to see how this new model handles competitors in the same category, including the Chevrolet Blazer and Ford Edge, Toyota 4Runners, Nissan Murano, Subaru Outback, and the Toyota 4Runner.

2023 Honda Passport New Design

The Honda Passport 2023 is an SUV that was inspired by the Honda Pilot pickup truck, the Honda Ridgeline pickup truck. All models share many cues and the design philosophy is identical. The Passport is actually a bit different from other models, as designers have given it a new attractive grille with mesh design. The facelifted Passport is more rugged than ever. We also noticed that the manufacturer will add a chunkier front bumper. Honda will modify the rear end of the vehicle with a new bumper, larger tailpipes and new lenses for the taillights.

Interior

We expect that the technology has been improved on the last model and that it will be replicated in the new model. Honda is expected to make the cabin more comfortable, and use better materials. The Passport will still be a two-seat SUV with room for five people. Honda has added new technology features to the Passport last year. This includes an 8-inch infotainment display that replaces the 5-inch one. The Passport supports Apple CarPlay/Android Auto as standard. The Honda Sensing range of driver aids was included in even the entry-level model. This package includes adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning/lane-keeping aid, and automatic emergency braking.

Engine

The new Honda Passport 2023 uses the same 3.5-liter V6 engine as before. It is powerful and produces 280 horsepower and 262 pounds of torque. The Passport can be equipped with either front wheels (FWD), or all four wheels (AWD), depending on the trim and equipment. The transmission is a 9-speed automatic with very smooth shifting. Although some rivals have a continuously variable transmission (CVT), this one is superior in many respects. Variable cylinder management, Eco Assist, and an idling stop/restart function make the engine very efficient.
