One of the best minivans on the market, the Honda Odyssey, is reportedly getting a mild overhaul for the next year. The new model called 2023 Honda Odyssey should introduce more handsome styling, and it will ride on the new Global truck platform.
If you didn’t know, this platform is currently used on the models such as the Acura MDX, Honda Pilot, and Honda Ridgeline. Anyway, the manufacturer will also make some changes inside, adding more premium materials and better technologies. As for the engine, this minivan will probably continue to use the same 3.5-liter V6, producing 280 horsepower and 262 lb.-ft torque. There are also rumors that the next-generation could also receive some sort of electrification.
2023 Honda Odyssey Facelift
The spy shots of the 2023 Honda Odyssey are available, and they reveal mild changes on its body. First of all, the next-generation model will look more handsome thanks to some upgrades here and there. We immediately noticed new black wheels and more sharper lines on the side.
There is currently one image on the rear, and as we can see, the upcoming Honda Odyssey is featuring new LED taillights and revised bumper. Unfortunately, the spied model is wearing camo, and we don’t have a clear look on other changes.
The 2023 Honda Odyssey is among favorite minivans because it comes with a modern and spacious interior. Unlike its rivals, this minivan is available with either seven or eight seats. There’s plenty of room, and cargo space can be expanded from 32.8 to 158 cubic feet. The LX as the entry-level model includes great equipment.
Inside, you’ll find power-adjustable front seats (8-way for the driver, 4-way for the passenger), infotainment system of 8 inches, and plenty of drivers assist features. Other options that are available include rear-seat entertainment system, heated/ventilated front seats, leather seating surfaces, wireless charging, and front/rear parking sensors.
2023 Honda Odyssey Engine Specs
The 2023 Honda Odyssey is the minivan that will probably continue to use the same engine as the outgoing one. Many believe that the next-gen Odyssey could use some sort of electrification to keep up with competitors. The current model is available with a 3.5-liter V6 producing 280 horsepower and 262 lb.-ft torque. This unit sends power to the front wheels via a smooth 10-speed automatic transmission.
Unfortunately, there is still no word about the all-wheel-drive. However, if you are seeking a model with AWD, check out rivals like the Toyota Sienna or Chrysler Pacifica.
2023 Honda Odyssey Release Date, Price
As mentioned, the new 2023 Honda Odyssey has been recently spied testing heavy camouflaged. Anyway, we believe that the final product will be introduced sometime next year, while sales should start immediately after.
Unlike the previous generation, the new one will ride on Honda’s Global truck platform that’s also available with models such as the Acura MDX, Honda Pilot, and Honda Ridgeline models. The current Odyssey cost $33,000, and it can go up to $50,000 for the range-topping Elite variant. Moreover, we expect the new one to remain in the same pricing range.
