The 2022 Honda Passport gets a redesigned face along with other exterior changes. It still retains its humble V6 engine producing 280 hp while offering superior cargo capacity and practicality. If you are looking for a three row SUV then you can take a look at its elder sibling, the Honda Pilot. The 2022 Passport is expected to go on sale at a starting MSRP of $35,000 by year end. 

2022 Honda Passport 

The 2022 Honda Passport will continue to offer existing trim options along with a new TrailSport trim. The Trailsport trim will be more off-road biased. The 2022 Passport will get optional Honda Performance Development (HDP) package as seen on the Honda Ridgeline truck, offering redesigned grille, HDP unique wheels, blackened fender flares and HDP graphics for a more distinctive look. It will fight against the Jeep Grand Cherokee, Ford Edge and Volvo XC60.

“ All Passports receive a fresh face and more standard safety tech, while the TrailSport prepares the crossover for off-road duties.”- Car and Driver 

The 2022 Honda Passport gets a much needed facelift and now looks more rugged than ever. It also gets a redesigned front and rear bumper. The new TrailSport trim offers better off-road compatibility with bigger 18-inch wheels and tires, torque vectoring technology with AWD and traction control system to deal with off-roading. The interiors get an orange theme in the form of contrast stitching, orange ambient lighting and TrailSport logos on the seats. 

2022 Honda Passport Review

All the trims will be powered by the same V6 engine producing 280 hp that is not very fuel efficient or exciting to drive. However, it comes with less maintenance and is reliable. Honda has planned to offer many more features like a lift kit, all-terrain tires and many off-road accessories to the TrailSport trim in the future. All the trims will get refreshed styling and get optional AWD configuration with intelligent traction management

2022 Honda Passport Buying Advice

8.0/10

We’ll recommend the TrailSport trim for its distinctive styling and better off-road compatibility. It will offer most of the features of the Touring trim and add off-road specific features like 18-inch knobby tires, higher ground clearance of 8.1-inches, unique interior styling with orange accents and amber ambient lighting. Honda also recently unveiled the TrailSport Rugged Roads Project with many off-road specific features like all-terrain tires, Jsport lift kit, roof cross bars, stainless steel skid plates for oil pan and fuel tank, etc which clearly defines Honda’s future plan for the TrailSport trim. 

2022 Honda Passport Features

The prices are expected to start at $35,000 and go up ro $46,000 for the top of the line Elite trim.

The most interesting and exciting part of the 2022 Passport will be its TrailSport trim and available HDP package. The TrailSport trim will add the much needed versatility and off-road capability that was missing from Honda’s midsize SUV lineup. The HDP appearance package will also add distinctive features like redesigned grille, HDP specific wheels, blackened fender flares and HDP graphics at the rear quarter panel. All the trims will get larger exhaust outlet tips and redesigned bumpers. 

2022 Honda Passport Engine and Performance

9.0/10

“Its high ground clearance, a comfortable ride and an available all-wheel-drive system also make it an excellent vehicle for road trips and camping excursions.”- Edmunds

The 2022 Honda Passport is equipped with the same 3.5L i-VTEC V6 engine producing 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque. It is mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission and comes with FWD as standard while AWD is optional. The performance from the powertrain is expected to be the same as the outgoing model. It is good for a family hauler but not enough to impress the speed devils out there, especially around the top rev range. The 2022 Honda Passport can tow up to 5,000 pounds 

2022 Honda Passport SUV Engine Bay

The 2022 Honda Passport AWD models will offer better traction over different surfaces. While different drive modes will help to control the SUV over difficult terrain. The FWD models will get a ground clearance of 7.5 inches versus 8.1-inches of the AWD models. Both are equally good for the class. The 2022 Passport is expected to do a 0-60 MPH sprint in 6.2 seconds with the AWD version expected to do it within 5.8 seconds. The quarter-mile drag will take about 14.7 seconds

2022 Honda Passport Off-Roading 

The 2022 Passport is a carry forward model with some exterior design changes. So, the driving dynamics are expected to remain very similar to the 2021 model. The steering will be light and accurate.The chassis will be calibrated to offer good driving dynamics. The ride quality and comfort will be good on paved roads but owing to a high ride height off-roading might be on the rough side. The 2022 Passport will feel more car-like in driving than a proper mid-size SUV.

The Honda Passport is not the most powerful SUV but offers better performance than its rivals. The Jeep Grand Cherokee has the most powerful engine with 292 hp but comes third, courtesy of its higher curb weight. The Volvo XC60 offers reasonably good performance with a 0-60 MPH timing of around 6.4 seconds while the Ford edge does the same in around 7.2 seconds, losing the performance game.

2022 Honda Passport Interior

9.0/10

“Despite an unremarkable design, the materials are attractive enough and the controls are nicely organized.” - Car and Driver 

The 2022 Honda Passport will get the same interior as that of the 2021 model. The interior is quite reminiscent of the Ridgeline truck. The dashboard is minimalistic and ergonomic. The infotainment screen sits exactly in the center of the dashboard adjacent to the air conditioning vents. The front seats are expected to be comfortable and will be manually adjustable while being trimmed in cloth upholstery. The EX-L and above trims will get a 10-way power adjustable seat for the driver and 4-way power adjustable seat for the passenger.

The rear seat will be 60/40 split and foldable for extending cargo capacity.  

2022 Honda Passport Interior 

However, the available cargo capacity of 41.2 cu-ft will be adequate for most usage scenarios. From the EX-L trim itself, features like heated front seats, one touch power moonroof, tri-zone climate control system, leather trimmed seats, power tailgate, etc will be standard.

2022 Honda Passport vs 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is one of the favorites in the segment. Not just because of the fact that it is an American brand but because of the fact that the Grand Cherokee has been such a great SUV in the segment over all these years.

2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee

But, the Jeep falls back in most aspects when compared with the Honda. The Passport is more powerful, spacious on the inside, more cargo capacity, and has lots of features along with being very safe and reliable than the Grand Cherokee.

2022 Honda Passport vs 2021 Ford Edge

The Ford Edge just like the Honda Passport is such a well-rounded SUV with lots of positives working to its favor. This includes a very exciting and striking exterior staying along with a very spacious cabin and lively driving dynamics.

2021 Ford Edge

The Ford Edge is more fuel efficient. However, Passport gets better features combined with a very spacious and comfortable interior along with great performance. Honda's well-known reliability and safety is an added benefit. 

2022 Honda Passport vs 2021 Volvo XC60

The Volvo XC60 is one of the most unique and sophisticated SUVs in the segment. The XC60 unlike all of its rivals has a luxury SUV appeal which is such a great thing in the segment. The XC60 will definitely turn heads when you drive on the roads because of its elegant and classic exterior styling.

2021 Volvo XC60

But all this luxury comes at a cost which is, of course, the higher starting price compared to all its rivals. This is where the Passport gets an advantage in terms of pricing along with its spacious interior and powerful engine.

2022 Honda Passport Final Verdict

The Honda Passport has always been known for its great ride quality, spacious interior, and comfortable seats. With the new 2022 Honda Passport, things haven't changed much in that regard.

Plus, it will knock out most of its rivals in terms of reliability, meaning very peaceful ownership over the long-term usage. All these considered, we strongly feel that the 2022 Passport is one of the best SUVs in its segment.
