The 2022 Honda Passport With TrailSport Trim Off-Road Rugged Look.
The Honda Passport is a line of sport utility vehicles from the Japanese manufacturer Honda. Originally, it was a badge engineered version of the Isuzu Rodeo. Honda unveiled in 2018, it is only available in the American market. Generally, this is a shortened version of the three row Pilot, but the company decided to position the five seat SUV as a separate model. With the off road scene booming in recent years, now is the right time to introduce a rugged trim level, dubbed TrailSport.
The midsize SUV in the newly launched specification is mostly about cosmetic upgrades, but it also boasts wider front and rear tracks, plus 10 millimeters, which Honda says gives it a better stance and improved stability. The Passport TrailSport rides on new 18-inch wheels exclusive to this model, wrapped in 245/60 R18 tires with sidewall tread for a more rugged look.
As you would expect from an off road oriented trim, it comes as standard with all-wheel drive featuring torque vectoring. Power is provided by the same 3.5-liter V6 delivering 280 horsepower and 355 Newton-meters of torque to both axles through a nine-speed automatic transmission.
The 2022 Passport gets bigger exhaust finishers and redesigned bumpers, along with contrast stitching for the EX-L’s perforated leather seats. All versions get LED headlights, smart entry with push button start, rear seat reminder, eight inch infotainment with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, plus a vast array of Honda Sensing safety tech.
Honda will have the revised Passport at dealers this winter.
