Honda just unveiled their newly redesigned Passport a week or two ago, and its looking to be quite a competitor in the segment. It is no longer a rebadged Isuzu like it was when we last saw it back in 2002. Its expected to start in the high 20's and will be sold exclusively with Hondas 3.5l VTEC V6. Honda does seem to be orienting it around off road capability.

Love the fact it takes after the Pilot, just in this case we're getting something more reasonable to throw around on the trails without worry.
Potential always existed with the Ridgeline always around, aside from that Honda had nothing remotely rugged in their line up.
Pickup segments are so lucrative that the Ridgeline just being a reliable pickup is enough to keep it around. Its a success in its own way.
Like the Ridgeline in such a lucrative segment, the Passport will succeed enough to sustain sales.
The Passport will also be using the acclaimed SH-AWD system, though under a different name. That alone will help to take this midsize places that many rivals could not reach.
Reason being why I stayed away from Honda = terrible AWD system that never distributed power as you'd expect it.

The new AWD is a breath of fresh air.
