Whether or not families will actually leave the pavement in an SUV like the Honda Passport may not matter much — as long as it looks the part. The proof is in the growing list of SUVs (and even a minivan) that get rugged-styling makeovers with mild off-road capability. Examples include Subaru’s Wilderness Edition SUVs, the Ford Expedition Timberline and the Toyota Sienna Woodland, to name a few. The latest vehicle to join the club is the refreshed 2022 Honda Passport and its new TrailSport trim. The changes should further separate the Passport from the related Honda Pilot — a family hauler that fits in better on paved roads than off-road trails.
