Honda begins production of 2019 Passport in Alabama

Honda celebrated the start of mass production of the 2019 Passport at Honda Manufacturing of Alabama (HMA). Going on sale early next year, the Passport is produced exclusively at HMA and will play an important role in Honda's award-winning SUV lineup, providing a unique combination of on-road driving refinement and off-road adventure capability.

The all-new Passport was revealed last month at the Los Angeles Auto Show, and will slot between the compact CR-V and three-row Pilot in Honda's award-winning SUV lineup.

It is produced in Alabama alongside other members of the award- winning Honda light-truck lineup, including the Pilot sport utility vehicle, the Odyssey minivan and the innovative Ridgeline pickup truck. The existing lineup of Honda SUVs - Pilot, CR-V and HR-V - has been recognized as the "Best SUV Brand" by U.S. News & World Report for four consecutive years. The Ridgeline was selected as the 2017 North American Truck of the Year.

The Passport, the newest addition to the Honda SUV lineup, is based on Honda's Global Light Truck platform and shares much of its underlying structure with the three-row Pilot SUV and Ridgeline pickup, including a highly rigid unibody construction.
