'Any hope for more aluminum/chrome?

I'm seriously considering the Passport as my next vehicle after my current Grand Cherokee lease is up. (March 2021)
Why? Back seat legroom, for starters. Also, I loved my '15 Pilot.
Big factor in the decision process is: I really don't like all the black trim that car manufacturers are forcing upon us. Yes, I'm old. Anyhoo, the EX-L eliminates the black wheels. Check. Do we know if Honda has any plans to replace the black front end with chrome, or aluminum, or body-color, any time soon?

We do not know Hondas' intentions.
We do know that Plasti-dip works wonders on colorizing things.
I looked at the Passport shortly after it hit the dealers - my initial reaction was its too big (which led me to purchasing a CRV).
After 8 months living with the V (an otherwise wonderful buggy) I decided I wanted/ needed more physical room.

Despite being seriously upside down on my V trade in I proceeded. Spending my kids (and grandkids) inheritance becomes easier each year.

Returning to the OP point - at one time I was bedazzled by chrome (the real stuff, not a film over plastic); nowadays its not important to me.

I want pics of that lady (ragtop?).
this is an auto enthusiasts forum - so show your bimmer pics?
Unfortunately digital cameras (nor cell phones) didn't exist back then - so I must rely on "close" net pics.

These are NOT actual pics but only close pics; my fathers joy was a 58 Lincoln convertible and then a 76 Riveria convertible; both had their fair share of real chrome.
Note: he also approved of fast women and booze. RIP.

Seriously, look into PlastiDip, avail in many colors. If you don't like it you can remove it (fairly easy).

As old McDonald would exclaim -
E - I - E - Ohhhh. She is sure purty.
Earlier today I observed a Buick (maybe an Endeaver). It was quite similar in size/ style to our PP; it was very glitzed up with chrome.
Ohhhh, car porn that I can relate to.

True story here: my father (RIP) owned a Pontiac (Buick, Land Rover) dealership back then.

He had a brand new 64 Goat (in silver) but nobody wanted silver - so he sent it to the bodyshop; when it returned it was Burgundy - and sold. Pontiac advertised it at a buck a pound. The orange 69 Judge sold quickly - at more than a buck a pound.
