  • The 2022 Honda Pilot adds a TrailSport trim level, like its sibling the Passport.

  • The TrailSport, starting at $44,785, has a lifted suspension, 18-inch wheels, and different tires.

  • The Sport also replaces the LX as the base trim level, starting at $38,055.

Honda's new TrailSport moniker is making its way to the Pilot three-row SUV for 2022, after having made its debut on the closely related Passport. The trim level is similar for the Pilot, consisting of some appearance tweaks and a suspension lift. The 2022 Pilot TrailSport starts at $44,785 and comes standard with all-wheel drive.

Honda says that the lifted suspension provides an extra 0.6 inch of ground clearance, and the TrailSport also has black 18-inch wheels and different tires. The black plastic cladding around the wheel wells is more noticeable, and there's a TrailSport badge on the tailgate and embroidered on the seats.

Elsewhere in the Pilot lineup, the base LX trim level is gone and is replaced by the Pilot Sport that starts at $38,055. This means the base price rises by $4280 compared with 2021, although the Sport does have more standard features than the LX did, including 20-inch wheels and an 8.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. A new color called Sonic Grey Pearl also joins the color palette for 2022.
