The 2022 Honda Passport is turning heads with a much more distinctive and rugged look. Once viewed as the prototypical family vehicle, the all-new Passport is clearly ready to take you and four additional passengers on an adventure on or off-road. For those focused on off-road functionality, the 2022 year marks the release of the first TrailSport that offers even more functionality and rugged capability.
Honda executives are excited that the look of the new Passport encourages drivers to take full advantage of all that this reliable vehicle has to offer. Past models were always very capable and ready to head into rougher environments, but they really didn’t look like it. The more bold and angular lines of the 2022, along with the power bulge hood and enhanced bumpers, provide an added feel of confidence and aptitude when heading off the paved road. Even the new grille design adds to the more adventurous appearance with a chrome crossbar bisecting the headlights.
With a 3.5-liter V6 engine delivering 280 horsepower, the 2022 Passport is one of the most powerful SUVs in the mid-sized class. The nine-speed automatic transmission provides smooth and easy control of that power on the various surfaces you will encounter both on and off-roading. In addition, owners of the TrailSport, Elite, and EX-L also have the opportunity to enjoy i-VTM. This is Honda’s torque-vectoring all-wheel-drive system that increases traction management. Drivers have a choice of four modes, including sand, snow, mud, and paved roads. And with a towing capacity of up to 5,000 pounds, the Passport allows you to bring all your favorite toys with you.
Honda has chosen the 2022 Passport platform to introduce a new series of vehicles that offer exclusive style and unique interior features. The TrailSport upgrades begin right at the nose with a signature grille and larger front bumper with a skid plate upgrade. New machines 18-inch wheels with pewter accents also set the TrailSport apart from the other Passports. Features like folding side mirrors and heater located on the windshield wipers are ideal when exploring a trail in rough terrain and climate.
