The Honda Passport crossover, which debuted in its current form in the fall of 2018 and is the younger brother of the three-row Honda Pilot, underwent its first noticeable update and at the same time became the first model of the brand to have the “off-road” version of the TrailSport.
Such machines stand out not only for their special decor: they have wider tracks by 10 mm, and the all-wheel drive i-VTM4 with traction control is included in the standard equipment. In addition, the Passport TrailSport received exclusive 18-inch wheels with 245/60 R18 tires, orange badges on the grille and tailgate, the same color stitching on the seats, steering wheel and door cards, as well as TrailSport emblems on the front seat headrests and rubber mats.
The engine remained standard – a 3.5-liter V6 with 284 hp. and 355 Nm, combined with a nine-band automatic. Interestingly, Honda has already promised to expand the Passport TrailSport off-road capabilities in the future, in particular, to reconfigure the suspension.
In addition, a package of improvements from Honda Performance Development (HPD) has become available for a regular crossover – a different grille, black wheel arch extensions, special wheels, nameplates and stickers. The Ridgeline soplatform pickup truck had a similar styling kit last fall.
All 2022 Honda Passports also feature redesigned bumpers and larger exhaust tips. The basic configuration includes LED headlights, a keyless entry system with an engine start button, a multimedia complex with an eight-inch screen and support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and a set of Honda Sensing security systems. Such cars will reach American dealers in winter.
