Punchy looks propel Passport

The 2022 Honda Passport won’t let you lose sight of the fact that it’s arrived in the marketplace, and we mean that literally. The ’22 version of Honda’s largest SUV is new from the A-pillars forward, with the practical result being that the Passport is all of a sudden a little less conservative and a little more RAV4-y, with pronounced, jutting metallic lines, the pronounced headlamp eyebrows leading the parade. The rear visuals have also received some attention in the form of a repopped rear bumper and more aggressive exhaust outlets.

The appearance upgrades, and considerably more, combine to create the new-for-’22 Passport TrailSport edition, as this image illustrates. Besides a bespoke logo, the TrailSport also receives a model-unique front grille, a semi-skidplate appearance treatment for both bumpers and unique 18-inch wheels. The TrailSport logo’s embroidered inside, along with orange contrast stitching for the interior surfaces. It’s not all show, either, given the standard Passport 3.5-liter V-6 that’s capable of delivering 280 horsepower while mated to a standard nine-speed automatic transmission. Among the range-wide niceties are a standard power-operated rear liftgate.
