MARKHAM, ON: New rugged styling matches Passport’s true off-road capabilities, new Passport TrailSport amps up emotion and adventure, further advancing new rugged design direction,

As new halo for Honda light trucks, TrailSport further highlights the off-road capability, versatility and durability long engineered into Honda light trucks

Restyled and adventure-ready, the 2022 Honda Passport begins arriving at Canadian dealerships in early 2022 with a rugged new exterior design that better reflects its true off-road capabilities and more standard features than ever before. Inspired by the spirit of exploration, the first-ever Passport TrailSport takes Passport’s new rugged styling even further.

The Passport Sport is the entry point for Honda’s largest 5-passenger SUV. Packed with standard equipment, such as all-wheel drive, one-touch power moonroof, power tailgate, and 18-inch alloy wheels, the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) for Passport Sport is $45,570 (not including destination charge and optional paint colours).

The new Passport TrailSport features standard torque-vectoring i-VTM4® all-wheel drive, rugged-design tires, unique styling touches, roof rails and more, with an MSRP of $49,270.

“The new Passport and Passport TrailSport are taking Honda’s SUV and truck lineup to a higher level of durability, ruggedness and fun to drive capability,” says Steve Hui, assistant vice president Honda Canada. “The Passport is a tough, competent and adventurous vehicle ready to get dirty off the road or take you on your family on your next excursion on it.”

Passport’s tough new look better reflects the rugged capabilities of its strong unibody construction, independent front and rear suspension, standard 280-horsepower 3.5-litre V6 engine, 9-speed automatic transmission, and class-leading i-VTM4® torque-vectoring all-wheel drive system.

The 2022 Passport’s expanded list of standard features includes remote starter, Blind Spot Information (BSI), heated front seats and steering wheel, power adjustable driver seat, and an 8-inch Display Audio system with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration.

Topping the lineup, the well-equipped Passport Touring features unique 20-inch alloy wheels, a hands-free power tailgate, heated and cooled front seats, heated rear seats, and built-in navigation.

The Honda Sensing® suite of safety and driver assistive technologies is standard on every Passport. On Passport, Honda Sensing® includes Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) with Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) with Lane Departure Warning (LDW), and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC). New for all 2022 Passport grades is a rear seat reminder and rear seatbelt reminder as standard equipment.
