2022 Honda Passport Redesigned-Coming This Winter!

2022 Honda Passport- Overview

The Honda Passport lineup for 2022 has been revised, putting it on the pricier end of the mid-size SUV price spectrum.

The 2022 Honda Passport will be significantly more expensive due to eliminating the entry-level Sport trim level. The mid-spec Touring trim level or old base Sport trim level is no longer available.

Therefore the EX-L with front-wheel drive is now has a starting price of $39,095.

This is $5000 higher than the introductory price of the 2021 Passport Sport and several thousand dollars more than the starting costs of competitors like the Hyundai Santa Fe, Ford Edge, and VW Atlas Cross Sport.

Instead, the manufacturer introduces a new TrailSport variant with a rugged, off-road-inspired design.

Here are the three major highlights of the 2022 Honda Passport:

  • The revised 2022 Honda Passport mid-size SUV price has been revealed.
  • There are fewer trim options than before, with EX-L, TrailSport, and Elite available.
  • The EX-L is available with front- or all-wheel drive, while the other two variants are equipped with AWD as standard.

The 2022 Passport features a redesigned hood, a new grille, and front bumper, and altered front fenders, all of which Honda hopes will give the vehicle a bolder, more upright appearance.

The rear bumper has been sculpted to match the front bumper, wrapping around more extensive twin exhaust tips than before.

The instrument cluster and dashboard have also been updated to match the exterior’s sportier design.

The discontinuation of the base Sport model and the Touring trim for the 2022 model year is, of course, the most significant change.

With the Passport EX-L now serving as the new entry point, the base price effectively rises.

Although the EX-L is the sweet spot for most shoppers, the Sport’s demise and its sub $35K starting price is sure to be a disappointment for bargain hunters.

The TrailSport adds 18-inch wheels and different tires, a 0.4-inch wider track, a navigation system, and a roof rack.

The front seats are chilled in the Elite, the steering wheel is heated, and the heated back seats are offered.  

The TrailSport has a 10mm wider track, which improves visible stance and physical stability, but it appears that this is the only performance improvement.

It has a meaner-looking grille and bumper, with molded silver skid plate patterns (rather than actual bashable skid plates), gloss black trim, and orange TrailSport emblems on both ends.

The orange theme is orange contrast stitching on the steering wheel, door cards, and leather-trimmed seats.

Additionally, the TrailSport emblem is stitched on the seats and molded into the rubber floor mats. The inside lighting, which is amber, ties everything together.

The 280-horsepower V6 engine in the Passport remains intact. Front-wheel drive is standard, albeit the EX-L is now the only model available in that configuration.

All-wheel drive is offered on the EX-L and is standard on the TrailSport and Elite models.

The economy is likewise constant, with 2WD cars getting 22 combined mpg and AWD models getting 21 mpg.
