Honda Passport vs Honda Pilot: What's Under the Hood?


Performance is always an important factor to consider when deciding which SUV to use for your daily travels. Thankfully, the Honda Passport and Honda Pilot each flaunt the same effective, engaging motor.

The base option for both Honda SUVs is a heralded 3.5L V6 that produces up to 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. Additional performance features accompany this motor no matter which SUV you're selecting, too. To further enhance performance, you'll have:

  • Eco Assist™ System

As for the transmission, the Honda Pilot comes standardly equipped with a 6-speed automatic transmission.
