2023 Honda Pilot vs 2023 Honda Passport
Serving Brighton, MI
The Pilot and the Passport are sitting at the top of the 2023 Honda crossover lineup. These have been popular options in the Brighton area for many years, and they both introduce several thoughtful updates this year. While they stand next to each other in the lineup, the three-row Pilot and the two-row Passport are excitingly different in many areas. You can rely on our Serra Honda Brighton associates to help you compare the 2023 Pilot and the 2023 Passport in detail.
The 2023 Honda Pilot is available in six trims, and they all are outfitted with the same powertrain. This is a V6, 285-horsepower engine linked to an auto 10-speed transmission. The top two trims have standard all-wheel drive. The other trims have standard front-wheel drive or optional AWD. In comparison, three trims are offered for the Passport, and they share performance capabilities. Specifically, they have a V6, 280-horsepower engine, an auto nine-speed transmission, and standard all-wheel drive.
The differences between the 2023 Pilot and the Passport continue across their facades. The Pilot has prominent dimensions that feature relatively flat angles and smooth surfaces. Across the front end, the Pilot’s black bumper carries outward to the slanted, molded air vents. Above these features, narrow LED headlights are slightly angled and have an LED accent bar. The grille is dressed up with a staggered design on the mesh. The 2023 Honda Passport, on the other hand, shows off sportier styling with defined accents on the side doors, black molding throughout, and a shorter hood with a sharp angle. The front bumper has stronger molding and is paired with upright air vents and a rectangular grille. Outer LED accents cap the thick headlights.
The difference in passenger seating between the Pilot and the Passport is only one of many that you will find when you compare the cabins. However, both models have adaptive cruise control, HondaLink, parking sensors, a household power outlet, a navigation system, driver’s memory functions, a power moonroof, a tri-zone climate control system, heated front seats, a hands-free liftgate, wireless smartphone charging, and leather upholstery. Some features offered only with the Pilot are a heated windshield, a head-up display, second-row sunshades, a programmable liftgate, the option for second-row captain’s chairs, and a remote engine start.
