  • 2019 Honda Passport teaser to be revealed at the 2018 LA auto show

Honda confirmed Thursday that the 2019 Passport will make its debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show later this November, marking the return of a nameplate which has been dormant for more than 15 years.

The modern Passport will be a mid-size crossover SUV sitting between the CR-V and Pilot in Honda's high-riding lineup. The company also says the Passport will be designed, developed, and built right here in the US with Honda's Lincoln, Alabama plant taking on assembly duties. The reveal will be livestreamed and available for viewing on Honda's YouTube channel (https://honda.us/PassportReveal) starting at 3:30 p.m. PST. & General Manager, Honda Division.

USA sales of midsize crossovers have climbed 3.8 percent this year in an overall market that has expanded just 0.5 percent.

The original Passport was American Honda's first foray into SUVs. Earlier this year, Honda launched freshened versions of its Pilot and HR-V sport-utilities, with upgraded technology, expanded availability of Honda Sensing®, and more premium features.

Honda goes so far as to say that the Passport was created to hit the sweet spot between a daily driver and a weekend off-road, all-weather adventure vehicle. Honda sold the original Passport, essentially a rebadged Isuzu Rodeo, from model years 1994 through 2002.

Honda is having a big year for its light-truck and SUV segment saying that it is on track for a fourth-straight record year of growth.

With vehicle deliveries off 9.8 percent, light trucks account for more than half of the Honda brand's USA sales so far this year.
