2021 Honda Pilot vs. 2021 Honda Passport

Serving Gurnee, IL

The Honda Pilot has been a strong contender for drivers searching for a midsize crossover SUV for many years. The Honda Passport is also a midsize crossover SUV. While it took an extended hiatus, the 2021 model year reintroduces a dramatically updated version. At Muller Honda of Gurnee, SUV shoppers frequently inquire about the differences between these two vehicles. We actively support each customer through their vehicle selection, and we are honored to have the opportunity to tell you more about these two popular models.

Performance

Across all six trims offered for the 2021 Honda Pilot, a V-6 gas engine that produces 280 horsepower drives the SUV forward. This same powertrain is in all four trims of the 2021 Honda Passport. The bottom three trims for the Pilot are loaded with a six-speed automatic transmission. The top three trims for the Pilot and all trims for the Passport come with the nine-speed auto transmission with shift-by-wire and steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. If you have heavy loads to carry, you're probably curious about the Honda Pilot towing capacity. Other performance-based equipment is standard and similar for both vehicles. These items include a rear multi-link suspension, unit-body construction, a MacPherson front strut suspension, electric power-assisted steering, stabilizer bars, and other equipment.

If you're leaning toward the Passport and have dirtbikes or watercraft to trailer, then you'll want to know about the Honda Passport towing capacity.

Appearance

The 2021 Honda Pilot and the 2021 Honda Passport have comparable contours and definition throughout their sides and hood, but they are noticeably different in other areas. The Pilot has a horizontal bar grille and a C-shaped element accenting the fog lamps. Black body molding runs along the sides, but it does not cover the wheel fenders. The Pilot also has integrated roof rails, power side mirrors with heat, a power liftgate, a sunroof, and other features.

In comparison, the 2021 Honda Passport has a black grille that sits above a sporty air intake. The LED headlights have a multi-elemental design with the fog lamps placed in elongated portals flanking the lower air intake, while the black body molding spans across the lower side panels as well as the wheel fenders. The 2021 Passport also has raised roof rails, black side mirrors with power adjustments, and other features.
