The trim family for the ’24 Passport consists of the EX-L, TrailSport, and Black Edition. Under the hood is a 3.5-liter V6 engine that makes 280 horsepower and pairs with a 9-speed automatic transmission. With standard all-wheel drive, the Passport has a leg up on the Kia Telluride and Hyundai Palisade, where that desirable feature costs extra. When it’s properly equipped, the Passport can tow a maximum of 5,000 pounds. Every trim has been estimated by the EPA to achieve 19 mpg around town and 24 mpg on the highway.
There’s nothing basic about the EX-L with its leather upholstery, heated front seats, tri-zone automatic climate control, and 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with lumbar support. It also gets a four-way power-adjustable passenger seat, a one-touch power moonroof with tilt, four USB ports (two front and two rear), a leather-wrapped steering wheel, two 12V power outlets (1 console, 1 cargo), a 60/40-split second row with one-touch fold feature, push-button start, the HomeLink remote system, and an automatic-dimming rearview mirror. Its exterior highlights are automatic LED headlights, LED taillights, a power tailgate, heated side mirrors, dual exhaust finishers, and 20-inch Sparkle Silver alloy wheels. The available Utility Package will add a trailer hitch, roof rails, and crossbars.
The rugged TrailSport is designed to head down the roads less traveled with an off-road-tuned suspension and all-terrain tires on 18-inch Pewter Gray alloy wheels. Inside, it has ambient LED interior lighting, leather-trimmed seats with orange stitching, while the outside is enhanced with LED fog lights, power-folding side mirrors, and gloss black roof rails. The top-of-the-line Black Edition has leather upholstery with red stitching, heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear outboard seats, a power tailgate with hands-free access, separate rear-seat climate controls, rain-sensing windshield wipers, auto-dimming side mirrors, and 20-inch Berlina Black alloy wheels.
All Passports have the Honda Sensing suite of driver-assist technologies. This standard package consists of automatic high-beam headlights, adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, front and rear parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring, a multi-angle rearview camera, road departure mitigation, rear cross-traffic alert, and forward automatic emergency braking.
All three trims get an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, SiriusXM satellite radio, and HD Radio. The EX-L and TrailSport have a 7-speaker audio system with a subwoofer and speed-sensitive volume compensation, but the Black Edition is upgraded with a 10-speaker premium sound system with a subwoofer. The two higher trims also get a navigation system with voice recognition and HD digital traffic, while the Black Edition alone comes with a Wi-Fi hotspot.
