The 2019 Honda Passport has finally arrived to the SUV market. It has been a highly anticipated model for those who enjoy off-road adventure and modern SUV driving alike. With Ford dropping out of the sedan market, they will be major players in the SUV market moving forward, but how does Ford’s comparable Edge model match up against the Passport?
When it comes to an off-road capable SUV, you are going to care about power. Both models are available with an AWD system, so there is no difference there, but as you can see from the chart below, the Passport EX-L model delivers 280 horsepower. This is significantly more than the 2019 Edge SEL’s 250 horsepower. The Passport also has a max towing capacity of 5,000 lbs.
2019 Honda Passport EX-L AWD
2019 Ford Edge SEL AWD
|280 hp||Horsepower||250 hp|
|Up to 100.7 cubic feet||Cargo Volume||Up to 73.4 cubic feet|
|Up to 114.9 cubic feet||Passenger Volume||Up to 113.9 cubic feet|
|5,000 lbs.||Maximum Towing Capacity||3,500 lbs.|
The interior of the Passport is what really stands out in this comparison, though. When compared to other SUVs in the segment, the Passport consistently blows the competition out of the water when it comes to interior space. So, how does it compare to the 2019 Ford Edge? Well, the Edge actually competes well with only 1 less cubic foot of space for passengers. When it comes to cargo, however, the Passport simply runs away with the win, offering up to 100.7 cubic feet of cargo space through the rear liftgate.
As you can see in this comparison between the 2019 Honda Passport vs the 2019 Ford Edge, it’s really the Passport that has the true edge in the segment. To learn more, contact us at Hilton Head Honda, and we can also set you up with a test drive at our Bluffton, SC location.
