Honda is planning to bring back the Passport nameplate on a new SUV it will be introducing in the North American market next year, Automotive News reports. A source familiar with the matter revealed to the industry publication that the new vehicle will sit in between the CR-V and Pilot.

The new two-row SUV will be around 15 cm shorter than the Pilot, which is only sold in the US market. The new Passport – which will reportedly sit on the same platform as the Pilot – is set to go up against the Ford Edge, Nissan Murano and Hyundai Santa Fe Sport in the US.

The source said that the Passport will be presented at a Honda dealer meeting in November and will also be shown at the Los Angeles Auto Show the same month, ahead of a market debut in early 2019.

Its arrival into the market will give the automaker a fourth SUV model in its North American market line-up. The original Passport (seen above) was a rebadged Isuzu Rodeo and was sold in the US over two generations, from 1994 to 2002.
