2019 Honda Passport | Powertrain

Passport’s powertrain matches a vehicle’s twin roles as a midsize SUV that’s gentle around town, nonetheless that also offers a kind of capability indispensable for off-road adventure. It includes a absolute and fit direct-injected i-VTEC® V6 engine corresponding exclusively to an advanced, next-generation 9-speed involuntary fibre (9AT). Passport is also permitted in two- or all-wheel expostulate regulating Honda’s Intelligent Variable Torque Management (i-VTM4™) AWD component with energetic torque vectoring. Honda’s Intelligent Traction Management (ITM) component combines with i-VTM4™ to make Passport singular among midsize 5-passenger SUVs, means to tackle imperishable terrain, nonetheless not during a responsibility of on-road comfort and drivability.

The customary engine for a 2019 Passport is a 3.5-liter proceed injected i-VTEC® 24-valve SOHC V6 engine with Variable Cylinder Management™ (VCM™) cylinder deactivation technology. The engine is corresponding exclusively to a 9-speed involuntary fibre (9AT) in all trims, and all Passports underline an extended Idle-Stop component to assistance serve raise fuel efficiency. Passport’s engine is rated during 280 rise horsepower and 262 lb.-ft. rise torque (SAE net).

Passport’s energetic doing and all-weather coherence are significantly extended by a permitted Intelligent Variable Torque Management (i-VTM4™) all-wheel-drive component that gives it clever off-road capabilities. i-VTM4™ uses an electronically tranquil behind differential and energetic torque vectoring capabilities that aids both doing and energetic cornering performance. To serve raise all-weather performance, both a front-wheel expostulate (2WD) and all-wheel expostulate (AWD) Passport models embody Intelligent Traction Management with push-button control to concede a motorist to name between Normal, Snow, Mud and Sand modes with AWD, and Normal and Snow with 2WD for optimal opening in varying highway and aspect conditions.

Engine Architecture and Features

Cylinder Block and Crank 
With a 60-degree V-angle, Passport’s V6 engine is inherently well-spoken and has compress altogether magnitude that concede fit wrapping within a vehicle. The 6 has a die-cast lightweight aluminum amalgamate retard with cast-in-place iron cylinder liners. Made with a centrifugal spin-casting process, a thin-wall liners are high in strength and low in porosity. The retard incorporates a deep-skirt settlement with 4 bolts per temperament tip for organisation crankshaft support and minimized sound and vibration. The 3.5-liter V6 uses a high-tensile strength steel crankshaft for smallest weight.

A cooling control spacer positioned in a H2O coupler surrounding a cylinders helps control warm-up and doing cylinder ship temperatures to revoke friction. Plateau honing of a cylinder subsidy serve reduces attrition between a piston skirts and a cylinder walls by formulating an ultra-smooth surface. This two-stage machining routine uses twin harsh processes instead of a some-more compulsory single-stage honing process. Plateau honing also enhances a long-term wear characteristics of a engine.

Pistons/Connecting Rods
Designed with “cavity-shaped” crowns, a engine pistons assistance say quick explosion and minister to stratified-charge combustion. Ion-plated piston rings assistance revoke attrition for incomparable doing efficiency. Heavy-duty steel joining rods are fake in one square and afterwards “crack separated” to emanate a lighter and stronger rod with an optimally propitious temperament cap.

Cylinder Head and Valvetrain
Passport’s 4-valve cylinder heads are a single-overhead-camshaft design, with a cams driven by a crankshaft around an automatically tensioned toothed belt. Made of low-pressure cast, low-porosity aluminum, any cylinder conduct incorporates a “tumble port” settlement that improves explosion potency by formulating a some-more allied fuel-air mixture. An integrated empty plural expel into any cylinder conduct reduces tools count, saves weight, improves upsurge and optimizes a plcae of a close-coupled matter on any cylinder bank.

i-VTEC® with Two-stage Variable Cylinder Management™ (VCM®)
The V6 engine combines Variable Cylinder Management (VCM) with Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control (i-VTEC®), that changes a lift profile, timing and lift era of a intake valves. A switching resource allows any cylinder to work with low-rpm valve lift and era or high-rpm lift and duration. While doing in three-cylinder mode, a behind cylinder bank’s valve rigging closes all intake and empty valves to minimize pumping losses.

The “intelligent” apportionment of a component is a ability to change valve operation formed on a pulling conditions and engine rpm. At low rpm, i-VTEC® intake valve timing and lift are optimized (low lift, brief duration) for augmenting torque, that allows a far-reaching operation of 3-cylinder operation. As engine rpm builds past 5,350 rpm, i-VTEC® transitions to a high-lift, long-duration intake cam form for aloft high-rpm engine power.

VCM Operation
Honda’s Variable Cylinder Management (VCM) is used to support fuel efficiency. The i-VTEC® component combines with Active Control engine Mounts (ACM) to concede a VCM component to work with usually 3 cylinders in a far-reaching operation of situations to maximize fuel potency and revoke emissions. When incomparable appetite is needed, a component switches seamlessly to 6-cylinder operation.  

During startup, assertive acceleration, or high ascents – any time high appetite outlay is compulsory – a engine operates on all 6 cylinders. During moderate-speed cruising and during low or assuage engine loads, a component operates usually a front bank of 3 cylinders.

The VCM component can tailor a operative banishment of a engine to compare a pulling mandate from impulse to moment. Since a component automatically closes both a intake and empty valves of a cylinders that are not used, pumping waste compared with intake and empty are separated and fuel potency gets a serve boost. The component combines extent opening and extent fuel potency – twin characteristics that don’t typically coexist in compulsory engines.

VCM deactivates specific cylinders by regulating a i-VTEC® (intelligent Variable Valve-Timing and Lift Electronic Control) component to tighten a intake and empty valves while a Electronic Control Unit (ECU) concurrently cuts fuel to those cylinders. The spirit plugs continue to glow in passed cylinders to minimize retard feverishness detriment and forestall fouling prompted from deficient explosion during cylinder re-activation.

The component is electronically tranquil and uses special integrated bobbin valves in a cylinder heads. Based on commands from a system’s Electronic Control Unit, a bobbin valves selectively proceed oil vigour to a rocker arms for specific cylinders. This oil vigour in spin drives synchronizing pistons that bond and undo a rocker arms.

The VCM component monitors stifle position, automobile speed, engine speed, automatic-transmission rigging preference and other factors to establish a scold cylinder activation intrigue for a doing conditions. In addition, a component determines possibly engine oil vigour is suitable for VCM switching and possibly catalytic-converter feverishness will sojourn in a scold range. To serve well-spoken a activating or deactivating cylinders, a component adjusts ignition timing and stifle position and turns a torque converter lock-up on and off. As a result, a transition between three- and six-cylinder modes is effectively unnoticeable to a driver.

Drive-by-Wire Accelerator System
Passport’s Drive-by-Wire stifle component replaces a compulsory stifle hoop with intelligent wiring that “connect” a accelerator pedal to a stifle valve inside a throttle-body. The outcome is reduction under-hood confusion and revoke weight, as good as quicker and some-more accurate stifle actuation. Plus, a privately involuntary “gain” rate between a accelerator pedal and engine offers softened drivability and optimized engine response to fit specific pulling conditions.

Honda’s Drive-by-Wire stifle component establishes a stream pulling conditions by monitoring stifle pedal position, stifle valve position, engine speed (rpm) and highway speed. This information is used to conclude a stifle control attraction that gives a Passport’s accelerator pedal a predicted and manageable feel that meets motorist expectations.

Direct Injection System
The direct-injection component enables augmenting torque opposite a engine’s full doing operation along with aloft fuel efficiency. The component facilities a compact, high-pressure, direct-injection siphon that allows both high fuel upsurge and tapping suppression, while non-static vigour control optimizes injector operation. A multi-hole injector delivers fuel directly into any cylinder (not to a intake port, as in compulsory pier fuel injection designs), permitting for some-more fit combustion.

The multi-hole injectors can emanate a ideal stoichiometric fuel/air reduction in a cylinders for good emissions control. Theoretically, a stoichiometric reduction has usually adequate atmosphere to totally bake a permitted fuel. Based on a doing conditions, a direct-injection component alters a duty for best performance.

Direct Ignition and Detonation/Knock Control
An Electronic Control Unit (ECU) monitors engine functions to establish a best ignition spirit timing. Two engine block-mounted acoustic detonation/knock sensors “listen” to a engine, and formed on this input, a ECU can retard a ignition timing to forestall potentially deleterious detonation. The 3.5-liter V6 has an ignition curl territory for any cylinder that is positioned within any spirit plug’s entrance bore.

Idle-Stop System
To assistance urge fuel efficiency, all Passports are versed with Idle-Stop capability. When a component is enabled by a motorist and certain doing conditions are met, a Idle-Stop component will automatically tighten off a engine when a automobile comes to a stop. The engine is automatically restarted when a motorist releases a stop pedal after a stop.

The component has been engineered to work uniformly and seamlessly. Fully integrated with a second-gear launch mode, a programming and stop vigour trigger safeguard discerning restarts when accelerating immediately after engine stop, creation a component reduction conspicuous in complicated trade and identical pulling situations. The atmosphere conditioning has been reconfigured as good to revoke engine restarts. Additionally, when in idle stop, a engine stays off after changeable to Park for a some-more discerning pulling experience. When stopped, a special cold storage evaporator in a atmosphere conditioning component helps say a gentle cabin feverishness even in gentle weather. Passport’s active engine mounts assistance well-spoken a restart. Idle-Stop operation is wholly integrated into a operation of a Brake Hold component and permitted Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC).

Idle-Stop can be incited on/off around a symbol on a core console, located during a bottom of a electronic rigging selector array. The component will automatically spin itself off in certain circumstances, including:

  • If a driver’s seatbelt is not fastened
  • If a engine coolant and/or fibre liquid feverishness is too high or low
  • If a automobile comes to a stop again before automobile speed reaches 3 mph
  • If a fibre is in a position other than “D”
  • If a battery state of assign is low, or a battery feverishness is subsequent 14°F
  • If a meridian control component is on and a external feverishness is subsequent -4°F
  • If a behind HVAC fan is set to extent speed

Close-Coupled Catalysts and High-Flow Exhaust System
The empty manifolds of a 3.5-liter V6 are expel directly into a aluminum cylinder heads to revoke weight, diminution tools count, and emanate some-more under-hood space. The outcome of this casting settlement is that a twin primary catalytic converters are positioned many closer to a explosion chambers, enabling intensely quick converter “light-off” after engine start. A poignant weight assets is satisfied by expelling normal empty manifolds. Downstream of a close-coupled catalytic converters, a hydroformed 2-into-1 gourmet siren carries empty gases to a secondary, underfloor catalytic converter.

Emissions Control
The 3.5-liter V6 engine meets U.S. EPA Tier 3/Bin 125 and CARB LEV3/ULEV125 emissions standards and is approved to this spin of emissions opening for 150,000 miles. A array of modernized technologies are factors in a emissions performance. The singular cylinder head-mounted close-coupled catalytic converters light off some-more quick after engine start up, and a 32-bit RISC microprocessor within a Electronic Control Unit (ECU) boosts computing appetite to urge a pointing of spirit and fuel delivery.

The engine facilities Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) that ceaselessly adjusts a fuel fibre to produce a best mixed of power, low fuel expenditure and low emissions. Multiple sensors constantly safeguard vicious engine doing parameters such as intake atmosphere temperature, ambient atmosphere pressure, stifle position, intake airflow volume, intake plural pressure, coolant temperature, exhaust-to-air ratios, as good as a position of a crankshaft and a camshafts.

To serve urge emissions compliance, a 3.5-liter V6 creates use of an after-catalytic-converter empty gas recirculation (EGR) component that allows cleaner, cooler EGR gas to be fed behind into a intake system. An EGR system, generally one that delivers a cleaner, cooler charge, reduces pumping detriment for softened fuel efficiency.

Noise and Vibration Control
With a 60-degree V-angle and compact, organisation and lightweight die-cast aluminum cylinder retard assembly, a 3.5-liter V6 appetite plant is unusually well-spoken during operation. Other factors that assistance revoke engine sound and quivering are a organisation forged-steel crankshaft, die-cast appendage mounts, and a unbending cast-aluminum oil vessel that reduces cylinder retard flex.

Active Control Engine Mounts
A absolute 34-volt Active Control Engine Mount component (ACM) is used to minimize a effects of engine quivering as a VCM component switches cylinders on and off. The 34-volt ACM is a pivotal means in a VCM’s extended operation of operation in a new Passport. Sensors warning a Electronic Control Unit (ECU) to proceed ACM actuators positioned during a front and behind of a engine to cancel engine quivering regulating a reverse-phase motion. See a Interior territory for some-more information.

100,000+/- Mile Tune-up Intervals
Passport’s 3.5-liter V6 requires no scheduled upkeep for 100,000+/- miles or more, other than periodic inspections and normal liquid and filter replacements. The initial tune-up includes H2O siphon inspection, valve adjustment, deputy of a camshaft timing belt, and a designation of new spirit plugs.

Battery Management System 
The Battery Management System (BMS) is designed to boost a altogether use life of a battery, revoke a probability of a passed battery and assistance urge fuel efficiency. Should a owners incidentally leave a headlights on or destroy to wholly tighten a doorway causing an interior light to sojourn on, a BMS will automatically cancel appetite fibre after a set generation of time to forestall a battery from being emptied of power. As a outcome of a liberate insurance afforded by a BMS, a battery should always have adequate haven ability left to start a engine.

The engine creates use of a absolute 130-amp alternator that charges in twin opposite ranges— a low 12-volt operation and a high 14-volt range. By determining a alternator assign voltage range, BMS works to keep a battery in a specific assign range, that can extend a use life of a battery by some-more than 25 percent. With BMS gripping a battery in a specific assign range, a alternator can run some-more mostly in a low range, that generates reduction drag on a engine ensuing in softened fuel efficiency. Application of countless electrical appetite shortening apparatus (such as a use of fit LED lighting and a special steam control component that has an involuntary atmosphere conditioning “off” function) allows a BMS to work a alternator even some-more frequently in a some-more fit low assign mode

Maintenance Minder™ System
To liberate nonessential use stops while ensuring that a automobile is scrupulously maintained, Passport has a Maintenance Minder™ component that ceaselessly monitors a vehicle’s doing condition. When upkeep is required, a motorist is alerted around a summary on a Multi-Information Display (MID).

The Maintenance Minder™ component monitors doing conditions such as oil and coolant feverishness along with engine speed to establish a scold use intervals. Depending on doing conditions, oil change intervals can be extended to a extent of 10,000 miles, potentially provident a owners substantial responsibility and nuisance over a life of a vehicle. The owner-resettable component monitors all normal use tools and systems, including oil and filter, tire rotation, air-cleaner, involuntary fibre fluid, spirit plugs, timing belt, coolant, stop pads and more. To revoke a intensity for motorist distraction, upkeep alerts are presented on a MID usually when a ignition is initial incited on, not while driving.

Advanced Transmission

All 2019 Passports are versed with a 9-speed involuntary fibre featuring steering circle mounted paddle shifters. When in Drive and underneath light-to-moderate accelerator pedal application, a 9AT starts in second rigging for smoother launch and some-more light acceleration. The fibre also defaults to second-gear launches when a Intelligent Traction Management (ITM) switch is in Snow mode. At full acceleration, with high grades, in S mode, or with a ITM in Sand or Mud, a 9AT will start in initial gear.

Passport uses a wholly electronic, shift-by-wire rigging selector in place of a normal rigging selector lever. Park, Neutral, Drive and Sport are comparison with a lift of a button. Reverse is comparison by pulling behind a dedicated switch. Indicator lights nearby a buttons prove a mode selected. As an combined haven feature, if a automobile is brought to a stop in Drive, a component will automatically name Park if a driver’s seatbelt is unbuckled and a driver’s doorway is opened. A steering wheel-mounted paddle shifter component lets a motorist take primer control of fibre rigging selection.

Automatic Modes
The 9-speed involuntary fibre can be operated in twin opposite wholly involuntary modes: a D (or “Drive”) mode is ideal for many pulling situations and combines fuel potency with well-spoken operation and manageable appetite when needed; a Sport mode is for some-more performance-oriented pulling and facilities some-more assertive change mapping to keep engine rpm aloft for incomparable acceleration and response.

When in a D mode (optimized for normal driving), a fibre incorporates an modernized Grade Logic Control System, Shift Hold Control and Cornering G Shift Control – all of that revoke neglected changeable and rigging hunting. The outcome is intelligent fibre operation that optimizes fuel potency and keeps a fibre in a suitable rigging for pulling conditions, generating glorious opening and well-spoken operation.

While brazen or brazen hills, Grade Logic Control alters a transmission’s change report to revoke change magnitude and urge speed control. The fibre ECU ceaselessly measures stifle position, automobile speed and acceleration/deceleration to establish when a automobile is on a hill. The change report is afterwards practiced – during ascents to reason a fibre in revoke gears to boost climbing power, and during descents to produce incomparable engine braking.

Shift Hold Control keeps a fibre in a stream (lower) rigging ratio during assertive driving, as in a box of decelerating during a dilemma entry. Shift Hold Control leaves a framework stoical by expelling additional changeable and ensures that appetite will be immediately permitted (without a downshift) during a dilemma exit. Cornering G Shift Control monitors a speed of any behind circle exclusively to establish when a automobile is turning. When a component detects a sufficient speed differential between a behind wheels, it will disguise any neglected upshifts. This prevents a fibre from upshifting during a corner, that could dissapoint a framework change so requiring downshifting again during a dilemma exit when a accelerator pedal is applied.

Temporary Manual Operation in Drive Mode
While in Drive mode, special fibre proof programming allows a use of a steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. When a motorist operates a paddle shifters, a fibre responds to a driver’s change authority and afterwards earnings to a normal wholly involuntary mode if serve paddle change inputs are not done within a few seconds depending on pulling conditions. This special proof creates it easy for a motorist to authority a discerning downshift though withdrawal a preference of Drive mode.

Manual Mode
By selecting “S” mode on a 9-speed transmission, Sport mode is engaged. This mode offers involuntary operation with some-more assertive change mapping. A lift on a racing-inspired paddle shifters (mounted on a steering wheel) places a fibre in wholly primer mode until another mode of operation is comparison (e.g., switched to Drive mode). A digital arrangement in a instrument cluster indicates that rigging a fibre is in.

A double-kick-down underline lets a motorist authority a sporty double downshift – such as from fifth to third gear. By pulling on a left downshift paddle twice in quick succession, a fibre will dump directly to a comparison revoke rigging ratio. The Drive-by-Wire™ stifle component also creates a “blip” of a stifle to assistance compare rigging speeds while downshifting.

To forestall mistreat to a powertrain when a fibre is paddle shifted by a motorist (including during double-kick-down shifts), a component will stop potentially deleterious shifts. As an combined haven measure, a Electronic Control Unit (ECU) can also cut off fuel to a engine to forestall over-revving. If fuel cut-off is deficient to forestall engine over-revving, as competence be probable when a automobile is on a high downhill, a fibre will automatically upshift to forestall damage. On downshifts, a fibre will not govern a motorist authority that will over-rev a engine.

For softened stop-and-go opening and to assistance forestall “lugging” a engine, a Sequential SportShift fibre will automatically downshift to initial rigging even nonetheless a fibre has been left in a aloft gear, (except in second gear) as a automobile comes to a stop. In Manual Mode, when entrance to a stop in second gear, a automobile will restart in second rigging as well.

Cooperative Control
Both change opening and fibre are softened by mild control between a Drive-by-Wire™ stifle component and a electronically controlled, Sequential SportShift involuntary transmission. The engine is throttled by a engine government component during upshifts and downshifts; thus, a duty of a engine and fibre can be closely choreographed for faster, smoother shifting. As a result, a rise g-forces (or “shift shock”) are reduced significantly during upshifts and downshifts.

Drivetrain Architecture and Features

2-Wheel Drive
Passport offers customary 2-wheel drive. With a fit and lightweight design, a Passport component drives a front wheels to make a poignant grant to altogether fuel efficiency. Operation in Snow Mode, regulating a Intelligent Traction Management System, adjusts a drive-by hoop map, fibre change map and Vehicle Stability Assist™ for a best performance.

Intelligent Variable Torque Management (i-VTM4™) AWD System
Passport’s permitted Intelligent Variable Torque Management (i-VTM4™) all-wheel-drive component includes an all-new electronically controlled, hydraulically actuated behind differential. The component gradually distributes best torque between a front and behind axles (up to 70% to a rear) and boldly distributes engine torque between a left and right behind wheels. The advantages of a component are aloft all-weather doing and neutral, accurate steering underneath appetite that is unmatched by front-drive, rear-drive or compulsory all-wheel-drive systems.

By rotating a external behind circle faster than a front wheels while cornering, Passport’s AWD component uses torque vectoring to emanate a bend impulse to assistance spin a automobile by a dilemma — shortening understeer and improving controllability. With cornering army some-more uniformly distributed between front and behind tires, altogether cornering appetite is augmenting in all highway conditions.

Vehicles with high appetite ratings regulating compulsory front or behind expostulate systems mostly occupy a limited-slip differential to assistance say traction when underneath power. By joining inside and external expostulate wheels, these systems tend to conflict branch and can boost understeer. Conventional AWD and AWD systems likewise work to couple a inboard and outboard wheels as good as a front and behind wheels, that can emanate insurgency to turning. Most competing vehicles in a Passport shred implement an open behind differential and sold rear-wheel braking to liberate rear-wheel torque from left to right.

Even in impassioned situations where one circle is off a ground, i-VTM4™ sends appetite to a circle in hit with a belligerent to lift Passport by and safeguard momentum.

Controls and Parameters
The i-VTM4™ component works in team-work with a Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) component and Agile Handling Assist to optimize torque chain for aloft doing and traction utilization. The Electronic Control Unit (ECU) provides information on engine torque, airflow and fibre gear-ratio selection, while a VSA® ECU provides wheel-speed data. The AWD ECU also monitors steering angle, steering angle rate of change, parallel G-forces, automobile bend rate and hydraulic squeeze vigour for a right and left behind spindle shafts. Drive torque is distributed from ECU information, and afterwards a acceleration situation, circle spin, parallel G-force, steering angle and steering angle rate-of-change are used to establish a front-to-rear torque chain and a torque apart between right and left behind wheels. This adds adult to a 46-percent faster component response time. i-VTM4™ doing parameters include:

  • Up to 100 percent of permitted torque can be eliminated to a front wheels during normal cruising.
  • In tough cornering and underneath acceleration, adult to 70 percent of permitted torque can be destined to a behind wheels to raise automobile dynamics.
  • Up to 100 percent of a torque sent to a behind spindle can be practical to possibly a left or right behind wheel, depending on conditions.

System Layout 
Passport’s AWD component is a full-time component that requires no motorist communication or monitoring, interjection to a torque-transfer territory that is bolted directly to a front-mounted transaxle. The torque-transfer territory receives torque from a scrolled rigging that is trustworthy to a front differential’s ring gear, and a brief craft missile and hypoid rigging set within a torque-transfer unit’s box send appetite to a behind propeller shaft, that in spin transfers appetite to a behind expostulate unit. The lightweight behind expostulate territory is constantly overdriven by 2.7 percent. The ensuing overdrive outcome is regulated by left- and right-side squeeze packs (located in a behind differential) that exclusively control a appetite delivered to any behind wheel. The poignant overdrive commission in Passport means that a torque vectoring outcome is conspicuous and effective even in corners with a radius of as tiny as 49.2 feet (15 meters). This means that torque vectoring can be felt when accelerating aggressively by a customary corner.

Hydraulically operated squeeze systems mounted on possibly side of a hypoid rigging that drives a behind axles control a volume of torque sent to any behind circle and produce a limited-slip differential duty when needed. The clutches can be tranquil as a camber to change front/rear torque apart or they can be tranquil exclusively to concede 100 percent of permitted behind spindle torque to go to usually one behind wheel. A singular electric engine powers a camber of hydraulic pumps – one for any squeeze pack. An Electronic Control Unit (ECU) tranquil linear solenoid valve selectively sends vigour to a squeeze packs, that in spin control a volume of appetite sent to any behind wheel. The squeeze packs and their attrition member are delicately designed to withstand a tiny volume of continual outing between front and behind axles combined by a 2.7-percent speed differential – all while delivering a continuance coming of a Honda product.

Intelligent Traction Management System

The 2019 Passport facilities an permitted push-button-operated Intelligent Traction Management System that offers 4 opposite AWD doing modes: Normal, Snow, Mud and Sand; and twin 2WD modes: Normal and Snow. Developed, tuned and tested during several locations in a U.S. and around a universe – including Imperial Dunes “Glamis,” California; Moscow, Russia; and Dubai, United Arab Emirates – a Intelligent Traction Management component allows a motorist to name a doing mode that best suits a pulling conditions by simply pulling a symbol on a vehicle’s core console. System information and an charcterised comparison mode idol is shown on a tone Multi-Information Display. Based on a environment selected, a component adjusts a Drive-by-Wire™ map, fibre change map, i-VTM4™ appetite chain and Vehicle Stability Assist™ for optimal opening in varying highway or aspect conditions.

Crash Safety Ratings

Pedestrian Injury Mitigation Design
Structures in a front of a 2019 Passport are designed to assistance catch appetite in a eventuality of a collision with a pedestrian. Research by Honda shows that a following facilities can dramatically urge a pedestrian’s probability of participation if struck by a relocating vehicle.

Specific walking conduct damage slackening facilities include:

  • Hood is designed to twist if hit is done with possibly an adult or a child pedestrian
  • Sufficient clearway exists between a hood and tough engine parts, permitting a hood to twist if impacted by a pedestrian
  • Windshield bottom has a singular territory structure for fit impact appetite absorption
  • Energy-absorbing buffer mounts and supports
  • Break-away windshield wiper pivots
  • Deformable hood hinges

Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control

Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) is an Electronic Stability Control component that works in and with Passport’s Drive-by-Wire™ stifle and a 4-channel ABS systems to raise control capability while a automobile is accelerating, braking, cornering or when a motorist creates a remarkable maneuver. VSA® functions by requesting stop force to one or some-more wheels exclusively while also handling a throttle, ignition and fuel systems to assistance a automobile say a driver’s dictated trail of travel.

The VSA® component constantly analyzes information from sensors that safeguard circle speed, steering input, parallel and longitudinal G army and bend rate. It compares a driver’s control inputs with a vehicle’s tangible response. Whenever a tangible response falls external of a fixed excusable range, VSA® intervenes with a visible action. For instance, if VSA® detects an oversteer condition, a component competence request braking force to a external front and behind wheels to negate a unintended yawing effect. In a eventuality of understeer, VSA® competence request braking to a inside behind circle while shortening engine appetite to assistance lapse a automobile to a dictated course.

VSA® also provides a limited-slip differential outcome for a front wheels by requesting braking force to a slipping wheel, thereby redirecting pulling force to a circle with some-more traction. VSA® is calibrated to duty in a near-transparent manner, and in many cases a motorist will not even be wakeful of a operation. However, anytime a component is enhancing automobile stability, an indicator light flashes in a instrument cluster. While a motorist can revoke a traction control efficacy permitting some-more circle outing during stranded condition by dire a VSA® button, ABS stays wholly operational during all times. See a Chassis territory for some-more information.

Motion-Adaptive Electric Power Steering (EPS)

Motion-Adaptive Electric Power Steering (EPS) is customary on all 2019 Passport models. The component incorporates pulling fortitude record that triggers steering inputs that prompt a motorist to expostulate in a scold instruction during cornering and in sleazy highway conditions. Using automobile speed and steering angle data, Motion-Adaptive EPS works with Honda’s Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) and Electric Power Steering to detect instability in sleazy highway conditions both during cornering and underneath braking and automatically triggers steering inputs directed during call a motorist to expostulate in a scold direction. This modernized record supports a driver’s movement in doing a automobile some-more safely and comfortably.

Two examples of how Motion-Adaptive Electric Power Steering (EPS) functions in and with VSA® are:

  • Stabilizes Vehicle underneath Braking
    This duty helps to scold a driver’s steering submit to revoke automobile instability when a motorist is braking tough on highway surfaces with opposite attrition coefficients (such as cement that is partially lonesome with mud or snow).
  • Mitigates Understeer and Oversteer
    To lessen intensity understeer or oversteer situations, a component helps scold a steering inputs to assistance a motorist snippet a curve.

For some-more information see a Chassis section.

Brake Assist
A duty of a VSA® system, a Brake Assist underline recognizes puncture braking situations and roughly now relates combined braking force. This Brake Assist underline is tranquil by a special proof in a component that evaluates a pedal focus rate and force to commend a panic stop situation. At that point, a VSA® modulator siphon increases braking vigour while a pedal is still being pulpy to safeguard extent interlude force, an movement that can assistance digest braking distance.

Advanced 4-Channel ABS with Electronic Brake Distribution
Passport is propitious with 4-wheel front brakes with four-channel anti-lock braking (ABS). The ABS component also incorporates Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD) electronics that automatically proportions front-to-rear stop force formed on a vehicle’s energetic bucket on any wheel. For some-more information see a Chassis section.

Advanced Front Airbags (SRS)
Both a motorist and front newcomer are stable by modernized front airbags (SRS) that incorporate worldly threshold activation technology. Like other Honda vehicles, a driver’s front airbag is located in a steering circle while a newcomer airbag is located on a tip of a dash. When deployed, a newcomer airbag inflates ceiling and afterwards rearward to maximize a protecting intensity while shortening a odds of injuries caused by airbag deployment.

Driver and Front Passenger Side Airbags
Side airbags mounted in a outboard area of any front seatback are designed to assistance produce pelvic and thorax insurance for a motorist and front newcomer in a eventuality of a serious side impact. In Passport, a revised side airbag settlement allows a side airbags to muster in a demeanour that helps lessen a risk of damage to a smaller chair occupant.

Side Curtain Airbags
All outboard seating positions are stable by side screen airbags with rollover sensor system. In a eventuality of a serious side impact, a side screen airbags muster from modules in a roof, providing a poignant spin of conduct insurance in a window area. In a doubtful eventuality of a rollover, a roll-rate sensor, along with mixed G sensors establish a rate of hurl and muster a side screen airbags accordingly. The side screen airbags will also muster and produce conduct insurance in frontal tiny overlie impacts, such as when a front dilemma of a automobile collides with plain object.

Like a other airbag systems in a vehicle, a side screen component utilizes sensors to establish a many suitable timing of airbag deployment. To produce a optimal spin of insurance for occupants, contrast was achieved to establish a many suitable timing and rate of deployment in a doubtful eventuality of a rollover. The component uses algorithms to ceaselessly weigh a conditions and determines possibly a rollover is imminent. The roll-rate sensor and mixed G sensors (accelerometers) establish a “scenario” and calculate a angle of hurl and a speed of a automobile in sequence to muster a airbags during a scold indicate for best protection.

In a box of a rollover, a side screen airbags on both sides of a automobile will deploy. However, in a eventuality of a sufficient side impact that does not outcome in a rollover, usually a airbags on a impacted side of a automobile will deploy. The airbag maintains full acceleration for approximately 3 seconds after acceleration to concede for a augmenting era of a rollover accident.

Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren (LATCH) and Adjustable Head Restraints
All Passports come versed with a child seat-mounting component called LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren). All 3 of a behind seating positions are propitious with dedicated LATCH tie points.

The LATCH component provides twin revoke anchors and an tip fasten anchor. When used with a concordant child seat, a LATCH component provides tie points between a child chair and a automobile chair though carrying to use a vehicle’s chair belts. All chair belts solely a driver’s are versed with a locking retractor that can be used to assistance secure any child seat. Both behind side doors are also versed with childproof doorway thatch for combined protection.

The front and behind seating positions underline away tractable conduct restraints.
Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

Passport comes versed with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) that alerts a motorist whenever a atmosphere vigour in one or some-more of a vehicle’s tires diminution significantly subsequent a endorsed level. When a vigour in one or some-more tires drops sufficiently, it causes a low tire-pressure indicator, located in a instrument cluster or in a Multi-Information Display (MID), to illuminate. The information-selectable MID arrangement can uncover all 4 tires pressures in genuine time and even if a TPMS information is not comparison for observation on a MID by a driver, it will seem automatically in a eventuality one or some-more tires falls subsequent a normal smallest pressure.

Tire Fill Assist 
Passport’s Tire Fill Assist10 works with TPMS to assistance a motorist grasp a scold tire pressures quick and easily. It does so by providing an heard hail and flashing a parking lights when a scold atmosphere vigour is reached for any tire being filled.

Expanded View Driver’s Mirror
Every Passport is versed with a Expanded View Driver’s Mirror that increases a driver’s margin of prophesy to produce a softened perspective of objects to a behind and side of a vehicle. The Expanded View Driver’s Mirror uses a prosaic contemplative craft on a center apportionment of a counterpart closest to a door, while a outdoor apportionment of a counterpart uses a convex member to produce a broader margin of view.

Multi-Angle Rearview Camera
Like all Honda models given 2015, a 2019 Passport incorporates a Multi-Angle Rearview Camera. Viewable on a 5-or 8-inch touchscreen, a camera can uncover a tip view, normal or far-reaching perspective when a fibre is in Reverse. The tip perspective is generally useful when joining a trailer, as it gives a motorist a bird’s-eye perspective of a hitch. The Sport trim facilities immobile discipline that assistance drivers softened decider distances, while EX-L, Touring and Elite trims have energetic discipline that plan a vehicle’s destiny trail formed on a driver’s steering inputs.

Blind Spot Information (BSI)

On EX-L trims and higher, a blind mark information (BSI) component uses radar sensors located on both sides of a behind bumpers to ceaselessly safeguard areas adjacent to a behind of a automobile to assistance establish possibly a automobile is present. The component provides a visible evidence by lighting an indicator nearby a sideview mirrors, depending on that side of Passport a automobile is detected. The component also gives an heard warning and flashes a indicator to serve warning a motorist if a spin vigilance is activated on a side where a automobile is being detected. To forestall fake alarms while maneuvering during low speed, a BSI component is infirm subsequent approximately 20 mph.  

Note that BSI can't detect all vehicles, and that some vehicles or inclination competence meddle with a system. Drivers should always visually check for a participation of other vehicles before changing lanes.

Rear Cross Traffic Monitor 

In and with BSI, a Rear Cross Traffic Monitor works to raise motorist certainty when subsidy up. The component is generally useful when reversing in undiluted parking lots with an blocked perspective from driver’s seat.

The component utilizes a camber of radar units located in a behind buffer corners. When Reverse is comparison and an coming automobile is detected, arrows indicating a coming vehicles instruction are shown on a core display’s behind camera picture as good as an heard warning.

Honda Sensing®
Comprised of a apartment of customary and permitted haven and motorist assistive features, a customary Honda Sensing® helps produce incomparable approval of pulling conditions around a vehicle.

Honda Sensing® facilities embody a following:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™)
  • Forward Collision Warning (FCW) – Integrated into CMBS™
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
  • Road Departure Mitigation (RDM)
  • Lane Departure Warning (LDW) – Integrated into RDM
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)

Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) 

The Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) is one of a many worldly driver-assistive technologies available. The CMBS™’s millimeter call radar unit, located behind a front grille, and monocular camera, located between a rearview counterpart and windshield, scans trade conditions brazen of Passport.

When a component determines a collision is probable with a rescued vehicle, a CMBS™’s integrated FCW system’s visible and heard alerts to prompt a motorist to take visible actions. The visible warning appears on a Multi-Information Display (MID). If a conditions is not resolved, CMBS™ can request opposite levels of involuntary puncture braking to assistance revoke automobile speed and contingent collision forces, and therefore to assistance revoke a astringency of a collision if a motorist doesn’t take visible movement on their own. The radar territory and camera work concurrently and cooperatively to control a VSA® modulator, that triggers any compulsory braking.

CMBS™ on Passport can commend shapes and compute between a automobile and a pedestrian, warning a motorist when possibly is detected.

It is vicious to note that CMBS™ can't detect all objects ahead, nor is it dictated to reinstate a driver’s comment of trade conditions and control of a vehicle. The motorist contingency meddle in certain situations, and contingency always be courteous when regulating a system. Although in many cases CMBS™ will stop a vehicle, it is not dictated to request adequate braking force to forestall all collisions. Based on a conditions, a component also competence not perform all visual- and audible-alert stages, and competence instead automatically rivet a brakes if a component deems it necessary.

Forward Collision Warning (FCW) – Integrated into CMBS™

Integrated with CMBS™, Forward Collision Warning (FCW) uses a monocular camera to detect vehicles brazen and to establish possibly a collision is likely. This reduces a highlight of pulling in traffic, while also contributing to an augmenting spin of pacifist safety.

If a FCW component detects a automobile in front and afterwards determines a collision competence start (due to a speed differential between a twin vehicles), it will trigger visible and heard alerts for a driver. These embody a “BRAKE” summary on a Multi-Information Display (MID), and a array of beeps to warning a motorist to request a stop pedal. The FCW component will not automatically brake, and a motorist stays obliged for safely doing a automobile and avoiding collisions. If a motorist doesn’t respond to a FCW warnings, however, a CMBS™ is triggered into operation.

Drivers competence adjust a stretch during that FCW alerts start by dire a “SETTINGS” button, selecting “Vehicle Settings,” and afterwards selecting “Driver Assist System Setup” and a “Forward Collision Warning Distance” option. At this indicate they competence name between “Long,” “Normal” or “Short.” And if they name to, drivers competence also name “Off” to invalidate a FCW component entirely.

Note that a FCW component can't detect all objects brazen and competence not detect a given object; correctness will change formed on weather, speed and other factors.  

Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)

The Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) provides a reduction stressful pulling knowledge by shortening steering improvement movements and pulling bid on a highway. LKAS uses a camera to review line markings and uses a Electric Power Steering to support a motorist in progressing their position within a lane.

Designed for a U.S. highway structure, a component uses a monocular camera mounted on a tip apportionment of a windshield to brand embellished lanes, Botts’ Dots and Cat Eye markers during speeds between 45 mph and 90 mph. When LKAS senses that a motorist is flapping from a core of a rescued lane, a component generates visible steering torque to support a motorist in progressing line position.

LKAS competence be activated and deactivated regulating a switch located on a revoke right prejudiced of a steering wheel. The component will postpone operation after several seconds if a motorist takes his or her hands off a wheel, accompanied by a visible warning in a MID, resuming when a motorist creates a steering input.

Road Departure Mitigation (RDM)

Integrated with Lane Departure Warning (LDW, below), RDM uses a monocular camera (mounted on a tip apportionment of a windshield) to brand plain or dashed embellished line lines, Botts’ dots and Catseye markers. RDM uses both steering force, around EPS, and, if a automobile is rescued withdrawal a line noted by plain lines, braking force, around VSA®, to assistance Passport stay in a lane.

The monocular camera recognizes line facilities and identifies a lane. If a RDM component determines a automobile is about to leave a rescued lane, it will produce steering support (primary) and in singular occasions when steering support is not sufficient to equivocate withdrawal a line noted by a plain line, braking assist, to assistance a motorist stay on a road. RDM is integrated with a Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) component to produce assuage braking, and with a Electric Power Steering (EPS) component to produce steering input.

Multiple visible and heard warnings warning a motorist when a RDM component is holding visible action. These embody a line depart warning on a driver’s Multi Information Display (MID) along with an heard warning.

RDM also has a customizable initial warning of possibly a steering circle shake/vibration, or an heard alert. This can be customized in a automobile settings.

Lane Departure Warning (LDW) – Integrated into RDM

Lane Departure Warning (LDW) is designed to warning a motorist if a automobile is withdrawal a rescued line though a spin vigilance being activated. The component functions during speeds from 45 to 90 mph on true or somewhat winding roads, alerting a motorist of deviations from a rescued lane. The LDW component utilizes a same tip front windshield camera used for CMBS™® and LKAS and provides a visible and heard alerts before to a other systems actively engaging.

If a automobile starts to pierce out of a rescued line though a spin vigilance activated, LDW illuminates a Lane Departure summary on a Multi-Information Display (MID) and sounds an heard warning, advising a motorist to take suitable action. The component can be activated and deactivated by dire a LDW symbol located on a instrument panel, to a left of a steering column.

There are certain conditions underneath that a component competence not rivet or operate, including severe continue (e.g., snow, ice or complicated rain) and impassioned cabin feverishness (due to operability of a camera). The component will automatically postpone operation when a brakes are practical or a spin signals are used. LDW competence not detect all line markings or line departures; correctness will change formed on weather, speed and highway condition. The motorist stays obliged for safely doing a vehicle.

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) 

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) allows a motorist to set a preferred speed and following interlude from a automobile rescued ahead, permitting a use of journey control in light trade conditions on a highway. This significantly reduces a motorist highlight of pulling in traffic. The component uses a millimeter call radar and monocular camera to ceaselessly line a stretch to a automobile ahead, and afterwards adjusts automobile speed to say a set following interval. A short, medium, long, or extra-long interlude can be selected. When required, Passport will autonomously stop regulating a Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) modulator. ACC operates in a following ways in a listed circumstances:

  • A preceding automobile is rescued ­in a line ahead – decelerates automatically, if required, and afterwards controls a following interval.
  • Another automobile merges in between Passport and a preceding automobile – automatically switches “targets” to a nearest preceding vehicle.
  • The preceding automobile exits a lane – ACC component continues during cruise-control speed formerly comparison by motorist (25 to 90 mph).  

A Multi Information Display (MID) summary and heard warning warning a motorist when a ACC duty is activated. See a Powertrain territory for some-more information.
