The Refreshed 2022 Honda Passport Offers a Rugged New Look and Off-Roading Capabilities

The 2022 Honda Passport New Rugged Look

Honda has recently introduced the refreshed 2022 Honda Passport, showing off its new and improved more rugged exterior design that matches its new off-roading capability. The Passport is equally at home on mountainous dirt or gravel roads as it on pavement, offering a new level of utility wherever the road takes you. This more aggressive exterior look includes a redesigned front end, a new rear bumper with larger exhaust vents. 

Taking the new Passports rugged look even further is the first-ever Passport Trailsport. A new trim option for the Passport in 2022, Trailsport further highlights the off-road capability, versatility and durability that has been engineered into the brand's light trucks for more than two decades.

The Passport's cabin has also been refreshed for a sportier, adventurous character, and the entire Passport lineup has been enhanced with a new Rear Seat Reminder and Rear Seatbelt Reminder technology for additional peace of mind. 

Created for active buyers who thrive on adventure, the new Passport TrailSport combines Passport's strong unibody construction, independent front and rear suspension, and available class-leading torque-vectoring AWD system with TrailSport exclusive exterior and interior styling. It builds upon a more than 50-year legacy of off-road engineering and performance that includes Honda motorcycles, ATVs, side-by-sides and light trucks.

“Some may not realize the true rugged, off-road capabilities of our light trucks,” 

said Dave Gardner, executive vice president of National Operations, American Honda Motor Co., Inc. 

“Now they're getting tough, rugged looks to match, and the addition of TrailSport will further enhance the off-road capability of our vehicles in the future.”

The 2022 Honda Passport is expected to begin arriving in dealers this winter.
