Honda Passport Horsepower and Torque

All Honda Passport trim levels come fitted with the same direct injection 3.5L i-VTEC® V6 engine for:

  • Up to 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque.

If that sounds like too much power for a quiet and composed ride when you’re driving through the suburbs at night or crawling through city traffic, the following features should set your mind at rest:

  • Active Noise Cancellation™ (ANC): Engine noises, as well as sounds from the road, are minimized.
  • Active Control Engine Mount (ACM) System: Works to actively reduce noise and vibration.


Each Honda Passport pairs its V6 engine with a 9-speed automatic transmission (9AT) with Shift-By-Wire (SBW) and Paddle Shifters, plus the following efficiency features:

  • Eco Assist™ System: Shows how your driving styling is impacting fuel consumption to coach you into more efficient behavior.
  • Variable Cylinder Management™ (VCM®): Shuts off two engine cylinders during steady cruising.
  • Idle-Stop: Shuts off the engine when you come to a stop and restarts instantly when your foot is back on the gas.

You can expect to make:

  • Up to an EPA-Estimated 20 mpg in the City and 25 mpg on the Highway with 2WD.*
  • Up to an EPA-Estimated 19 mpg in the City and 24 mpg on the Highway with available AWD*.

Honda Passport Capability

The Honda Passport isn’t the type of SUV that needs to keep to city and highway. Performance remains impressive when you venture into the backcountry thanks to the following capability features:

  • Intelligent Variable Torque Management™ (i-VTM4®) AWD System: Variable amounts of torque can be sent to each rear wheel independently for enhanced stability and propulsion across challenging terrain and through adverse weather.
  • Intelligent Traction Management: Allows drivers to cycle between different drive modes suited to Snow, Sand, and Mud.
  • Tow Hitch: Lets the Honda Passport tow up to an impressive 3,500 lbs. with 2WD or 5,000 lbs. with AWD.

Honda Passport Performance Features

Beyond its outstanding powertrain, the Honda Passport uses an impressive suite of performance features, including:

  • High-End Suspension: Each model utilizes MacPherson strut front suspension and multi-link rear suspension for a composed and controlled ride.
  • Front and Rear Stabilizer Bars: Anti-roll bars at front and rear reduce body roll when you’re going over road irregularities or taking corners.
  • Power-Assisted Ventilated Front Disc: Applies added force when you brake to provide surer stopping power when you need it most.
  • 20 Inch Alloy Wheels: Fitted as standard for outstanding high-speed performance and an enviably high ride height.
  • All-Season Tires: Fitted as standard to ensure traction is strong whether it’s the middle of summer or the depth of winter.

Honda Passport Active Safety Features

As you might have guessed, active safety features are designed to keep you and your passengers from harm, but most accomplish that end by sharpening aspects of performance.

Features include:

  • Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control: Uses a range of feedback measures to adjust throttle response and individual wheel braking for maximum stability and dependable traction.
  • Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD): When you apply the brakes, braking force will be distributed intelligently between all four wheels.
  • Brake Assist: When an emergency braking scenario is sensed, the Honda Passport will automatically apply more force to bring you to a stop sooner.
  • Hill Start Assist: Prevents you rolling backwards or forwards when making a hill start by maintaining braking pressure for a few seconds as you move your foot from brake pedal to accelerator.
