2023 Honda Passport in North York, Ontario
New For 2023:
- Passport's new rugged exterior design better reflects true off-road capabilities
- More aggressive exterior design from the A-pillars forward and a new rear bumper with larger dual exhaust outlets give the Passport a tough new look.
- First-ever Passport TrailSport is even more emotional and adventurous, further advancing Honda's new rugged design direction for the light truck lineup.
- As a new halo for Honda light trucks, TrailSport further highlights the off-road capability, versatility and durability long engineered into Honda light trucks.
Passport's new front and rear styling better reflects the rugged capabilities of its strong unibody construction, independent front and rear suspension, standard V6 engine, and available class-leading i-VTM4™ torque-vectoring all-wheel drive system. New sheet metal from the A-pillars forward includes a new hood with a pronounced power bulge, a new squared off nose and upright grille design unique to Passport, and new front fenders. Atop the grille is a crossbar that bisects the headlight lenses, finished in chrome on EX-L, and painted gloss black on TrailSport and Elite. It accentuates Passport's width, while a prominent skid garnish design adds to the tougher look of its new front bumper. Broad side vents route air through the bumper and around the front wheels and tires, creating air curtains to improve aerodynamic performance.
A new more aggressive rear bumper features cutouts for larger twin exhaust outlets, plus a tow hitch cover and skid garnish design that matches the more rugged front-end styling. The crossbar under the rear window is matte black on EX-L and TrailSport, and gloss black on Elite. All Passport grades also feature new tougher-looking alloy wheel designs. TrailSport is equipped with new 18-inch diameter wheels, while EX-L and Elite receive newly designed 20-inch wheels.
For those looking to take Passport's rugged new styling even further, a new HPD Package has been created in collaboration with Honda Performance Development (HPD), Honda's U.S.-based racing company. The HPD Package adds a unique grille treatment, black fender flares, aggressive wheels and special HPD graphics on the rear quarter panel.
One of the most powerful SUVs in its class, every 2023 Passport is powered by a 3.5-litre V6 engine producing 280 horsepower (SAE net at 6,000 rpm) and is backed by a smooth and responsive 9-speed automatic transmission. Standard on TrailSport and Elite, available on EX-L, is Honda's i-VTM4™ torque-vectoring all-wheel drive system. The system enhances controllability and traction management in all conditions by automatically sending up to 70 percent of the engine's 262 lb.-ft. (SAE net @ 4,700 rpm) of torque to the rear wheels and continuously apportioning 100 percent of that torque between the rear wheels based on driving conditions at each wheel.
The exceptional off-road traction management of the i-VTM4™ system expands Passport's off-road ability well beyond its crossover-based competition. In addition, Passport's four-mode Intelligent Traction Management allows drivers to customize the i-VTM4™system for different terrains, including sand, snow, mud and paved roads. With 8.1 inches of ground clearance (with AWD), Passport can navigate tough trails, and its 5,000-pound towing capacity (with AWD, with additional equipment) allows it to pull a large camper trailer or off-road toys.
