Serving Bristol, TN

The Passport is a midsize crossover SUV that takes its place in the Honda lineup between the CR-V and the Pilot. It has been a desired option in the Honda lineup for several decades, and it broke into its third generation in 2019. With your attention focused squarely on the Passport today, you need to know what improvements have been made to the latest version before you finalize your SUV selection. What should you be aware of about the 2021 and 2022 Passport crossovers?

Performance

Two of the trim levels available in 2021 have been discontinued in 2022. These are the Sport and Touring trims. However, the TrailSport trim level makes its debut in 2022. The 2022 trim lineup from the base level up includes the EX-L, the TrailSport, and the Elite. All trim levels continue to have the 3.5-liter, V6, 280-horsepower engine offered in 2021. The engine continues to be linked to a nine-speed auto transmission. The base trim level has front-wheel drive with available all-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is standard for the higher 2022 trim levels.

Appearance

The exterior design of the Honda Passport has been modified slightly for the 2022 model year, and the result is a more rugged, athletic style. The design features a tall nose with a honeycomb grille. The grille is accompanied by triangular headlights topped by a bolt-like LED light bar. Lower-body molding from front to rear is thick, and the side molding is accentuated with a metallic piece. The TrailSport trim level has a few unique elements. These include more rugged tires, 18-inch alloy wheels, roof rails, heated wipers, and power-folding side mirrors.

Features

Except for the features introduced in the TrailSport, there are no differences between the 2021 and 2022 versions of the Passport. The entry-level trim comes with parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, a lane-keeping system, forward collision mitigation, memory settings for the driver’s seat, leather upholstery, an 8-inch central display screen, wireless device charging, etc. Higher trim levels add rear window sunshades, a navigation system, a household power outlet, ambient lighting, a hands-free liftgate, a premium sound system, and more.
