Remote Engine Start

What’s the Benefit?

Passport’s remote engine-start feature raises the comfort and convenience of this vehicle to a luxurious plateau.

The Feature:

Imagine being able to start your Passport before you get in, so it’ll already be cooled off inside on a hot day—or warmed up and defrosted on a cold one. That’s the idea behind the standard remote engine-start feature on all Passport trims.

  • It works when you’re within about 100 feet of the vehicle.
  • Just push the button on the remote—the starter will fire up the engine, and the automatic climate control system will begin conditioning the interior to a temperature of 72º F.
  • On days when it’s below 40º F outside, it will even engage the heated seats and steering wheel, if equipped, to prepare for your entry.
