Honda plans to introduce the new TrailSport grade on select vehicles to cater to growing demand for off-road-ready lifestyle vehicles.
The badge design for the TrailSport grade was shown on Tuesday.
Specific upgrades mentioned include more aggressive tires, increased ground clearance, off-road tuned suspension, and underbody protection. Honda also said there will be expanded all-wheel-drive capabilities, which likely points to new drive modes designed for off-road conditions.
There will be interior touches, too, such as orange accent stitching, as well as all-weather mats that can be hosed off for easy cleaning.
The first TrailSport-badged Honda will arrive this fall. It will possibly be part of an updated Passport family, as a prototype for an updated Passport sporting some rugged design cues was recently spotted. The Ridgeline is also a strong candidate for the treatment. Stay tuned.
