Model Preview

The Honda Passport is a midsize, two-row sport utility vehicle. The current generation, released in 2018, is nothing like the first two models of the 1990s and early 2000s. Those models were supplied by Isuzu. This time, Honda builds the Passport in-house. It shares its underpinnings with three other Honda models: the Odyssey, the Ridgeline, and the Pilot. For 2022, the Passport is heavily refreshed from the front pillars to the front bumpers. An off-road capable TrailSport edition is new.

The Passport’s exterior is rugged, at least more than the three-row Honda Pilot. An aggressive nose and stubby tail give this crossover a more powerful stance. Distinct character lines and body sculpting add to the look. A wide gash at the rear connects the roof and fenders. It has a chunky look, suggesting that it is ready for off-roading, even if it is most capable around town. This year, the TrailSport rolls out with its own sporty styling elements, including more aggressive front and rear bumpers with skid garnish, 18-inch alloy wheels, and a slightly wider track.

Inside, the cabin seats five. Sportier elements are present, especially evident with the TrailSport. This trim features contrast orange stitching, a black chrome surround on the instrument cluster, and exclusive footwell and interior lighting. Beyond the Sport trim with cloth-covered seats, all Passport models feature leather. The front seats offer average comfort, with the flat surfaces being the main detractors. The rear seat space is roomy and can hold three individuals. The Passport offers very good cargo capacity as this model is only six inches shorter than the Pilot, but with two rows.

On the safety front, the Passport gets all the safety gear of nearly all other Honda models. And that means copious amounts of equipment. Every Passport comes standard with a collision mitigation braking system, forward collision warning, and lane-keep assist. Also, lane departure warning, road departure mitigation, and adaptive cruise control come standard. This year, Honda adds a rear-seat reminder to all grades.

Honda equips the 2022 Passport with an eight-inch touchscreen display. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, Bluetooth, two USB and a seven-speaker audio system are included. Among the upgrades are additional USB ports, navigation, a 10-speaker audio system, wireless device charging, and a 115-volt power outlet.

Under the hood of every 2022 Honda Passport is a familiar engine: a 3.5-liter V6 engine with 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. It sends power to the front or all four wheels utilizing a nine-speed automatic transmission. It’s a compliant transmission, especially when set in standard and sport modes.

Pricing & Release Date

The 2022 Honda Passport arrives at dealerships this winter soon after the first of the year.

Pricing for the 2022 Passport will be announced nearer to its release date. As a point of reference, the 2021 model starts at $33,710, including a $1,120 destination charge. Fully-optioned models push $47,000. We expect 2022 prices to hold close to the 2021's.

Among the Passport’s chief competitors are the Chevrolet Blazer, the Ford Edge, the Nissan Murano, and the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
