Face-Off: Chevrolet Blazer vs. Honda Passport

This battle of SUVs has two revived nameplates

The Chevrolet Blazer and Honda Passport are midsized SUVs with revived names. The Blazer first arrived back in 1969 but left in 2008 as the TrailBlazer. Chevrolet has brought back the name for its all-new two-row SUV.

The first Honda Passport debuted in 1993 and was essentially a rebadged Isuzu SUV. The Honda lasted for two generations before it was dropped in 2002 in favor of the three-row Pilot. Now, Honda has revived the Passport name for its new two-row SUV.

These two SUVs match up closely with each other and their competitors, such as the Ford Edge, Hyundai Santa Fe, Jeep Grand Cherokee, and Nissan Murano

They're similarly priced, available with front- or all-wheel drive, and have a V6 engine and nine-speed automatic transmission (although you can get a four-cylinder engine in the coming 2020 Blazer). Each one has its strengths and weaknesses, leading consumers to ask, how well do they match up? Which is more fuel-efficient? Which one has more interior space and cargo capacity?

To answer those questions, we take an in-depth look at these two SUVs to compare how they fare in CR’s testing and surveys. Then we let you know which one is tops.
