Moab, Utah is home to beautiful scenery and challenging off-road trails. It’s also closely associated with the Jeep brand, but that didn’t stop Honda from launching the 2019 Passport there. While it seems like an unusual place to host the first drive of the Passport, it’s actually not once you consider the company is positioning the crossover as a mild off-roader. Unique Positioning And Pricing According to Honda, the Passport has been designed to be more rugged than the Chevrolet Blazer, Ford Edge and Nissan Murano as well as sportier and more comfortable than true off-roaders like the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Toyota 4Runner. The positioning is a bit unique, but the Passport also plays the important role of slotting between the CR-V and Pilot. Honda estimated they were losing tens of thousands of customers by not offering a large five-seat crossover, so the Passport has been revived to fill that gap. Interestingly, the models starts at $31,990 excluding a $1,045 … [Read more...] about Review: 2019 Honda Passport Proves Comfort And Off-Road Capability Can Mix

After almost 20 years, Suzuki has finally replaced the first-gen Jimny with an all-new model. Instead of adhering to current market trend that want SUVs being focused on tarmac instead of off-roading, Suzuki kept the Jimny as close as possible to the original recipe, meaning a ladder frame chassis, solid axles and a tiny footprint. This makes the new Jimny not only one of the most off road-capable SUVs in the market today, but also the most affordable one. Power comes from a naturally aspirated 1.5-liter four-cylinder petrol engine that produces 100hp and 95.8 lb-ft (130Nm) of torque. It may not sound that much, but the engine apparently gets the job done, especially in off-road conditions along with the standard low range transfer case. A five-speed manual gearbox is standard, while a four-speed automatic is an option. Perhaps the bigger concern for off-road fans is the absence of locking differentials; Suzuki has instead equipped the new Jimny with a torque-vectoring system that … [Read more...] about Is The 2019 Suzuki Jimny Tough Enough To Follow Toyota’s Land Cruiser Off-Road?
