Honda, thanks to a partnership with Isuzu, introduced the Passport in 1993 as a 1994 model. This was the automaker’s first entry into the growing SUV market in the U.S. While Honda was eager to throw its badge on the grille, the Passport was actually an Isuzu Rodeo, which was based on an Isuzu pickup truck. This gave the Passport a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout.
