For the 2019 model year, both Honda and Chevrolet have introduced new midsize crossover models. The 2019 Honda Passport and 2019 Chevrolet Blazer are joining this competitive segment, offering performance, capability, and space to consumers. But how do they compare? We take a look at these two new models here.
Performance & Capabilities
While the Blazer offers two engine options and the Passport only comes with a single engine, the Passport’s standard powertrain offers more power than the Blazer’s. The Passport comes with a 3.5-liter V6 engine that puts out 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque, whereas the Blazer’s standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine produces 193 horsepower and 188 lb-ft of torque.
Along with more standard power than the Blazer, the 2019 Passport is also available with an all-wheel-drive system on all of its trim levels, even its base Sport. The Blazer only begins offering all-wheel drive on its third trim level – and only when it’s equipped with its non-standard 3.6-liter engine option. When it comes to capabilities, the Passport can also tow up to 5,000 pounds when properly equipped and outfitted with all-wheel drive, while the Blazer can only tow up to 1,500 pounds.
Whether you’re heading to your kid’s soccer game or your next outdoor adventure, interior space is important. The 2019 Passport’s interior is more suitable if space is a consideration for you. It comes with 41.2 cubic feet of cargo volume behind its second-row seats. This number expands to 77.9 cubic feet when the rear seats are folded down. Comparatively, the Blazer offers 30.5 cubic feet of trunk space and a maximum of 64.2 cubic feet.
Both of these models offer seating for up to five passengers. When it comes to overall passenger volume, though, the Passport still has more with 115.9 cubic feet, while the Blazer offers 107.8 cubic feet. With 8.1 cubic feet more space, passengers in the Passport will find extra room to stretch out.
