The New 2023 Honda Passport


The New 2023 Passport boasts various features that make it stand out from the competition, like its rugged exterior styling and powerful engine. With its three distinct trim levels, the Passport will meet your needs in one way or another.

If you're looking for the perfect middle ground between the CR-V's compact size and the Pilot's larger frame, you may have found it in the Honda Passport. Read on to explore each trim level available and its standout features! Once you've made your choice, come down to Burleson Honda for a test drive.

2023 Honda Passport Colors

Before diving into the various trim levels of the 2023 Honda Passport, let's start with the exterior. There are six color options to choose from on the new Passport. Lunar Silver Metallic, Crystal Black Pearl, and Obsidian Blue Pearl are all standard colors, meaning you're free to choose whichever you like best.

The other three color options-Platinum White Pearl, Radiant Red Metallic, and Sonic Gray Pearl-are available as upgrades. These shades will look great with the Passport's sleek exterior and marry the black interior perfectly.

As for wheels, the Passport can be equipped with either regular alloy, black alloy, or bronze alloy wheels. The latter gives the exterior a pop of color that is sure to turn heads.

Honda Passport 2023 Interior

Don't be fooled by the rugged reputation of the Honda Passport. Sure, it's meant to get down and dirty, but it does so in a refined manner. Inside its cabin, you'll find all the luxurious amenities you'd expect from a top-of-the-line SUV. From standard leather seats to wireless charging, the Passport will exceed your expectations.

Spacing is another area where the Passport excels. You'll benefit from 50.5 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row, a figure that literally doubles to over 100 cubic feet when the second-row seats are folded down.

2023 Passport Specs

If you're not quite sold on the Passport's interior and exterior, let's talk performance. The 2023 Honda Passport comes standard with a 3.5-liter, 24-valve, Direct Injection, SOHC, i-VTEC® V6 engine that produces 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. For reference, the CR-V's standard engine is a 1.5-liter, 16-valve, 4-cylinder that produces 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque.

Regarding towing capacity, the Passport can handle up to 5,000 lbs when properly equipped. As for fuel efficiency, it is estimated to get up to 19 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway. Other interesting specs to note include the following:

  • 9-Speed Automatic Transmission
  • AWD available
  • Intelligent Traction Management
  • 40.9/39.6 inches of legroom in the front/rear
  • 110.91-inch wheelbase
  • 8.1-inch ground clearance

Trim levels

As mentioned above, the Honda Passport comes in three trim levels: EX-L, TrailSport, and Elite. Let's break them down one by one, so you can make an informed decision.


The base model of the 2023 Honda Passport is anything but basic. The EX-L has features that you would find in the top trims of other vehicles, such as leather upholstery, heated front seats, and Tri-zone climate control. It also comes with Honda's signature Sensing safety and driver assistance suite. That includes lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, and automated emergency braking.

For those who prefer to stay connected while on the go, the EX-L features an 8" touchscreen display compatible with both Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. Other convenience amenities include remote start and LED exterior lights with high beam assist.

That's a lot of bells and whistles to fit in the first trim level!

Standout features:

Power moonroof: The EX-L comes standard with a power moonroof, perfect for stargazing on those clear nights.

Power tailgate: The EX-L also has a power tailgate, so you don't have to worry about manually opening the back of your car ever again.

Leather-wrapped steering wheel: In addition to leather seats, the EX-L has a leather-wrapped steering wheel that is both stylish and comfortable.


Next up is the TrailSport trim. Honda has equipped this model with an extra touch of class, with their trademark orange stitching on the leather seats. Outside, the addition of roof rails makes it clear that this trim is meant for adventure. Special rugged tires combined with Hill Start Assist, Intelligent Traction Management, and AWD provide superior grip for those off-road trails.

Since it's meant for adventure, the TrailSport also introduces the Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System to help you find your way if you ever get lost. It comes with the Honda HD Digital Traffic feature, which provides updates on traffic conditions even faster than conventional traffic systems.

Small accents also make all the difference. From integrated sunshades in the second row to illuminated cup holders, the TrailSport is a perfect example of Honda's attention to detail.

Standout Features:

Keyless entry: Simply press the button on the door handle to lock or unlock your car without fumbling for keys.

Power-folding mirrors: Say goodbye to manually adjusting your mirrors when you want to park in a tight spot.

115-volt power outlet: Need to charge a laptop? No problem. This outlet has plenty of power for all your devices.


Last but definitely not least is the Elite trim. This model comes with all the features of the EX-L, like 60/40 split-folding back seats, a power moonroof, and leather upholstery. But it also adds some exclusive amenities, such as ventilated perforated front seats for extra comfort. The speakers are also upgraded from the two previous models, going from seven to 10. With 540 Watts of power, you can enjoy your favorite tunes in crystal clarity.

Of course, no top-of-the-line trim is complete without a few luxurious touches here and there. The Elite trim adds 20" alloy wheels for a sleek look and a heated steering wheel to keep your hands warm during those chilly mornings. Finally, white ambient lighting complements the courtesy door lights for a sophisticated atmosphere.

Standout Features:

Wireless phone charger: Keep your smartphone battery full with this handy feature. Place your phone in the designated area, and it will start charging wirelessly.

Hands-free power liftgate: The Elite trim is the only one with a hands-free power liftgate. With a simple wave of your foot, you can open or close it without using your hands.

Wi-Fi Hotspot: With this Wi-Fi hotspot, you can connect devices on the go and surf the web at full speed.
