Learn how the Honda Passport Compares to the Chevy Blazer

Two beloved SUVs returned to American shores in 2019, with both the Honda Passport and the Chevrolet Blazer appearing in local showrooms. We understand you already have an abundance of options to choose from when it comes to your next SUV, but these two have features and benefits that are well worth exploring. That being the case, we thought it would be helpful to showcase how introductory models of these two new SUVs compare to each other.

Performance Comes Standard

The Honda Passport is equipped with a standard 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque, far out-performing the Blazer's 2.5-liter inline-four engine and its output of 193 horsepower and 188 pound-feet of torque. That power differential allows the Honda Passport to earn a maximum tow rating of 3,500 pounds when properly equipped, while the Blazer is limited to towing 1,500 pounds. Both SUVs feature a nine-speed automatic transmission, but the Honda Passport also offers steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters that allow you to control gear changes if you want. Paddle shifters aren't available for the Blazer.

Comfort and Convenience

The introductory Honda Passport comes with a number of convenience features that aren't available on the base Blazer, such as a power tailgate lock, rear seat climate controls, a second-row split bench seat, armrest storage, cargo area tie-downs, and fog lights. When we took a look at interior passenger space, the Honda Passport offers greater headroom, shoulder room and hip room, as well as the larger cargo space whether the second-row seats are upright or lowered.

Now that you've seen the difference between these two new SUVs, don't you think it's time you explored all that the 2019 Honda Passport has to offer in person? We invite you to visit Buena Park Honda, your Orange County Honda dealership, at your convenience and take one out for an exploratory test drive.
