SUV MPGs: 2019 Honda Passport vs. Blazer, Edge, Murano, and Others

Concept Cars

Although gas prices have been relatively low for a while, who doesn’t want to save money at the pump? Fuel prices have driven consumers to look into more spacious and high-riding vehicles. This move away from sedans toward crossovers has led many automakers to expand their lineups with new SUVs. A great example of the industry’s big SUV push is the return of the Chevrolet Blazer and Honda Passport, two new five-passenger crossovers that revive heritage nameplates and split the difference between a small crossover and a bigger three-row SUV.

It’s always interesting to compare fuel economy numbers with models that play in the same segment, and with two all-new vehicles (re-) entering the two-row midsize SUV game, it’s time to take a look at mpg ratings in that growing class. Here’s how the 2019 Honda Passport and Chevrolet Blazer compare against their main competitors—the 2019 Ford Edge, 2019 Nissan Murano, 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe, and 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

To make it a fair comparison, we’ll focus on the six-cylinder or turbo-four engines. The Passport, Murano, and Grand Cherokee don’t offer anything under six cylinders, and although the performance-oriented Edge ST has a six-cylinder engine, we’ll focus on the turbo-four engine offered on the SE, SEL, and Titanium trims.
