The 2022 Honda Passport is getting quite a price hike, with the EX-L now the base option.

On the whole, Honda’s midsize two-row crossover, sitting between the CR-V and the Pilot, isn’t a radical departure from the existing 2021 models. The automaker did give it a facelift with a more rugged look including the grille and rear bumper, as well as a few other exterior tweaks. However, you still get the same 280 horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine, 9-speed automatic and i-VTM4 all-wheel drive system standard on all models apart from the base EX-L.

Honda dropped the Sport trim for this model year, which accounts for most of the substantial price hike you’ll see if you’re shopping for a 2022 Passport. The EX-L is the only model that offers front-wheel drive as the default, though AWD is an option on that base trim. The Touring is also gone, so the only two trims above EX-L now are the new off-road-focused TrailSport and the more luxurious Elite. Both the upper trims get standard all-wheel drive. Standard equipment on the 2022 Honda Passport EX-L includes 20-inch alloys, a power moonroof, parking sensors, a power tailgate, heated leather seats, an 8-inch infotainment display, wireless phone charging and remote engine start.

Should you opt for the TrailSport instead, you’ll get smaller 18-inch wheels wrapped in more aggressive tires, and a wider track than the standard models. The TrailSport starts at $43,695. You get some more unique aesthetic touches here including orange TrailSport badging, blacked out Passport and AWD badges, more aggressive bumpers and silver skid plates.

Above that, the $46,665 2022 Honda Passport Elite tops out the range, with different 20-inch alloy wheels, heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats and a hands-free power liftgate. All pricing includes Honda’s $1,225 destination charge.

If you’re in the market for an updated passport, you won’t have long to wait — these cars should arrive at dealers this winter.
