Honda Introduces TrailSport: New Direction to Advance Rugged Off-Road Design & Capability of Light Trucks

  • Launching this fall, TrailSport to become the rugged halo for Honda light trucks
  • TrailSport-specific design and components to further advance the rugged direction of the brand’s existing light trucks without sacrificing on-road dynamics
  • Rugged upgrades for future to include all-terrain tires, increased ground clearance, underbody protection and expanded all-wheel drive capabilities

Honda has introduced TrailSport, the next chapter in its rugged light truck direction. Built for adventure, TrailSport will bring a more rugged design and off-road capability, applied step-by-step, to certain models within the brand’s light truck lineup.

When the first TrailSport editions arrive at dealers later this year, they will further advance the new rugged design direction of Honda truck products and become the halo for the off-road capability, versatility and durability that has long been engineered into them.

The first models to incorporate the TrailSport treatment will feature rugged front and rear styling, durable cladding, and exclusive interior touches, including high-contrast orange stitching and available signature all-weather mats that are easier to clean.

With Honda’s class-leading i-VTM4™ torque-vectoring all-wheel drive system, you will want to get dirty tackling trails, without sacrificing comfort or the on-road dynamics of the brand’s light trucks.

Over the next few model years, TrailSport off-road capability will further increase with upgrades like all-terrain tires, a full-size spare, increased ground clearance, off-road tuned suspensions, underbody protection, and expanded i-VTM4™ capabilities.

“TrailSport will be the embodiment of Honda’s next chapter, to bring more tough and rugged capabilities to our light trucks,” said Steve Hui, Assistant Vice President Honda Canada. “TrailSport has the ruggedness and exclusive styling that will be popular with consumers seeking adventure, on road or off, and for those looking for increased toughness in their vehicles.”

Expressing the exhilaration of outdoor adventure, the design of the new TrailSport logo is inspired by nature’s beauty and the spirit of exploration. TrailSport will build upon Honda’s more than 50-year legacy of extreme off-road engineering and performance that includes its motorcycles, ATVs, side-by-sides, and light trucks.
