Found this “trailsport” article that Honda has filed for. Looks like a potential rugged version of Honda products including the Passport could be on the horizon.

Looks great! How much lift anyone guessing?

Hopefully it comes with 18" wheels, not the ridiculous 20" wheels with low profile tires.

Subaru just came out with the Wilderness Edition Outback which is of a similar vein. I saw a video on a custom Passport that someone built up and I thought it was impressive and very cool. I welcome seeing more vehicles like this available from the factory.

The grill looks like it has been updated similarly to the Ridgeline (more upright).
Apparently, Honda quietly (so far) is launching an offroad package called the TrailSport. I saw an ad on my Instagram newfeed like minutes ago and quickly Googled it... Turns out we're getting a TrailSport, possibly through all of Honda's SUVs, and Ridgeline.


I would like to see a full size spare in them then...... Bet it will still be the same off road deal, just a name.....
New info on the 2022 Honda Trailsport.....!

Does anyone know the Trailsport's MSRP?
I'm just curious to know what it'll go for in today's market.
Also, will some of the Trailsport features, like the OEM skid plates, be available to purchase for the regular Passport trims?
Will probably all depend on how much the 2022+ Passports have changed for what parts are compatible with previous models. My guess is the easy bolt on things like rims and skid plates would be available for a super high dealer premium as add-ons to other models, as there will be people that may want an Elite with skid plates, for example. Honda would be happy to tack on $1,800 worth of skid plates to someone’s $45k Passport I’m sure. :)

However, other things like the recovery points (depending on if they’re integrated to the bumper like the prototype ones they show, or suspension lift they alluded would be coming, I doubt they’d offer as aftermarket parts. Maybe, but just depends on how easy it is to bolt them on.

In most cases, getting aftermarket stuff is going to be insanely cheaper though, and often times better. Like if I ran the conversion right, the No-Lo Skid Plates are thicker than what Honda will be offering, and certainly will be cheaper than dealer MSRP. What I think the Trailsport could bring however that’s the most valuable, is the additional aftermarket market. Meaning if Honda offers a Trailsport and starts marketing it for off-roading, more folks will get into Off-roading, and more companies will start building parts for it. Perfect example: You can buy a hidden winch bumper for a Subaru Outback no problem, but for the Passport we’re out of luck. We might even see some nicer suspension lift kits get designed, with some Fox shocks or something, etc. I’m dreaming big at that point though for an AWD, but if Subaru can get it, why can’t we? :)

I hoping for some more power engine wise by means of a reflash of the ecu.

Looks like a new grill, badging, interior trim, and finally 18'' wheels (which is a change most of us made already if we were looking to venture off road at all). Maybe more in the future. Maybe OEM underbody protection and a full size rear tire carrier partnership. Though those two things are also readily available aftermarket. Looks like Subaru has a more thorough approach with the outback wilderness edition (only the CVT has me concerned on it).

If the outback wilderness model was in stock somewhere near me, I'd have a serious look at it. As always, tradeoffs for both vehicles. I like my Passport, but to make it even moderately off road worthy required some changes.
Who has seen the new Trailsport option for 2022? It looks like Honda is finally going to compete with the Toyota TRD options.
Thoughs?

I just saw the 2022 Pilot Trailsport and was pretty disappointed. I thought both the Pilot and the Passport were getting a new model change, not just a refresh, or is that taking place for the 23 model year? Does anybody know if the interior of the 22 Passport has been updated?
I was at my Honda dealer getting my oil changed and noticed that they only had one Pilot and 1 Passport on the lot and both of them had a $5000 market adjustment on them! I asked one of the salespeople about that and was told this was going to be in place until inventory levels catch up. Last week I went over to their Acura dealer to check out their inventory and look at the new MDX (they had seven vehicles in the lot 4 RDX & 3 MDX) all selling for sticker price. Have any of you noticed market adjustment pricing at your Honda dealers? If anything I thought the Acura's would be marked up and the Honda's would be sticker.
So... are we excited for the 2024 Passport Trailsport now that we've seen the 2023 Pilot Trailsport? 2024 Passport Trailsport is gonna be legit, right?
