Everything You Need to Know About the Restyled 2022 Honda Passport
The Honda Passport is back in a big way in 2022, with a brand new all-terrain capable TrailSport trim option and 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 Honda Passport is set to arrive at dealerships in early 2022.
The Passport Sport is the entry point for Honda's largest 5-passenger SUV. Despite being the entry level trim, the Sport is packed with standard equipment, such as all-wheel drive, one-touch power moonroof, power tailgate, and 18-inch alloy wheels, with an entry cost of $45,570 (excluding destination charges).
The new Passport TrailSport features standard torque-vectoring i-VTM4 all-wheel drive and rugged-design tires for better off-roading capability, unique styling touches, roof rails and more, with an MSRP of $49,270.
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 for a starting cost of $52,170.
“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 and your family on your next excursion on it.”

What’s New on the 2022 Passport?
All-new from the A-pillars forward, Passport’s bold design includes a sculpted hood with a pronounced power bulge, squared-off nose and upright grille, and revised front fenders. Around back, a redesigned, more aggressive rear bumper features cutouts for larger twin exhaust outlets, plus a tow hitch cover and skid garnish design that matches the more rugged front-end styling. 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 exceptional off-road traction management of Honda’s i-VTM4 system expands Passport's off-road ability well beyond its crossover-based competition. In addition, Passport's four-mode Intelligent Traction Management allows drivers to customize the i-VTM4 system for different terrains, including sand, snow, mud, and paved roads. With 205 mm of ground clearance, Passport can navigate tough trails and its 2,268 kg (5000 lb’s) towing capacity (with additional equipment) allows it to pull a large camper trailer or off-road toys.
Passport's strong unibody construction and independent front and rear suspension deliver class-leading on-road ride comfort and dynamics. Sharp, precise steering gives the Passport a sporty driving character in any situation.
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.
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)
- Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC).
New for all 2022 Passport grades is a rear seat reminder and rear seatbelt reminder as standard equipment.
