As part of a midcycle update, the Passport — a nameplate revived for the 2019 model year and essentially a two-row version of the larger three-row Pilot — adopts new styling for 2022.
Honda also is reaching out to more off-road enthusiasts with a new Passport variant for 2022.
The Passport TrailSport trim — slotted between the EX-L and Elite versions — comes standard with Honda's torque-vectoring Intelligent Variable Torque Management all-wheel-drive system, a unique grille treatment and more aggressive front and rear bumpers.
Inside, the TrailSport package adds orange stitching on the steering wheel, door panels and seats.
Reviewers are mixed on the TrailSport package, with Consumer Reports calling it "somewhat off-road oriented."
As it expands the TrailSport trim to other models, Honda says it may offer improved off-roading capabilities over existing models.
Pricing for the Passport TrailSport starts at $43,695 with shipping.
