The completely redesigned 2024 Honda Odyssey will arrive next year, featuring many upgrades and changes. This family minivan earned a great reputation, and it’s an ideal companion from road trips to in-town grocery runs. It comes with a unique design and a very spacious cabin that offers plenty of flexibility. Technological features are plentiful, and we can expect the new Odyssey to host many driver-assistance features as well. For 2023, the design of this minivan will change to keep up with other rivals like the Toyota Sienna, Chrysler Pacifica and other ones.
Unlike the previous generation that used a smooth and powerful V6 engine, the forthcoming one might be powered with a new one. Many believe that is an ideal time to introduce some of the most efficient engines like hybrid or plug-in systems.
2024 Honda Odyssey First Look
The new spy shots are available, and it seems the 2024 Honda Odyssey will be completely redesigned. However, the caught model is wearing a lot of camoflage, which doesn’t allow us to see all the changes. First of all, the 2024 Honda Odyssey looks dimensionally larger, and it could ride on a new platform.
We also notice some changes of the front end including more attractive and thinner headlights and a completely new grille. Many believe that the next Odyssey will get the same treatment as the recently introduced Honda Ridgeline. This model receives a new sport grille, aggressive all-terrain tires, and a broader stance.
More Modern Cabin
The new 2024 Honda Odyssey will come with a completely new interior. As before, the upcoming minivan will keep the same seating layout, offering seating for seven or eight passengers. So far, the entry-level LX accommodates seven occupants, while the rest will take eight.
Inside, there is plenty of room for heads and legs, even on the back. You can basically count on cargo space that can be stretched from 32.8 to 158 cubic feet. From information that we got, the forthcoming model will come with a new infotainment system, and it should offer a wide range of goodies and gadgets. We expect heated/ventilated front seats, rear seat monitoring, rear-seat entertainment system, leather seating surfaces, Wi-Fi, wireless charging, and much more.
2023 Honda Odyssey Powertrain Specs
At this moment, we don’t have information regarding the engine of the 2024 Honda Odyssey minivan. Many believe that the next generation will bring something new, perhaps hybrid or even PHEV systems. The closest outcome is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and two electric motors that combine to put out 212 horsepower.
This engine could also come with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) and all-wheel drive as well. It’s worth mentioning that the current model uses a 3.5-liter V6 which provides a perfectly acceptable 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to this powertrain, the Odyssey has towing capacity of 3,500 pounds.
2024 Honda Odyssey Price, Release Date
There is no doubt that the forthcoming 2024 Honda Odyssey will cost significantly more than the outgoing model. The current one starts at $33,000, so expect the new one to be around $5000 more or so.
The sales of the new Honda Odyssey will likely start next year, as 2024YM. At that time, we can count on many new minivans, including the closest rivals Toyota Sienna and the Chrysler Pacifica.
