American Honda has announced pricing on the all-new 2018 Odyssey, which is now on-sale at dealerships.
2018 Honda Odyssey pricing
Sporting a redesigned exterior and an all-new interior, the fifth-generation Odyssey minivan is now available at Honda dealers nationwide.
The entry-level LX model, with a base price of $30,980, comes with a very modest price increase of $100, but features a slew of improvements including 32 more horses from the 3.5-liter V6 under the hood (for a total of 280), as well as a new 9-speed automatic transmission.
Additional standard features for 2018 include larger 18-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a new acoustic-laminated windshield. Front seat knee airbags, steering wheel paddle shifters, active grille shutters, and capless refueling are also new for 2018.
The EX trim, priced from $34,760 (an $820 increase), also gets new 18-inch alloys along with Honda's "Magic Slide" second-row seats, Display Audio infotainment, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, satellite radio, automatic high-beam headlights, blind spot information, and the Honda Sensing suite of safety features that includes automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, road departure mitigation, and adaptive cruise control.
Like last year, upgrading to the EX also adds LED daytime running lights, power sliding side doors, rear cross-traffic alert, heated front seats, three-zone automatic climate control, keyless entry and push-button start, remote engine start, auto on /off headlights, heated outside mirrors, second-row sunshades, and the brand's HondaLink assist system.
The EX-L trim also increases $840 (from $37,440 to $38,260) and features all the new upgrades found on the EX plus Honda's "Cabin Talk" PA sound system (that should, by overriding the rear entertainment system, help keep the kiddies back there in line).
Like 2017, upgrades over EX include leather seats (with 2-position driver's memory) and a leather-wrapped steering wheel, power tailgate, moonroof, auto -dimming rearview mirror, and Homelink remote functionality.
The price of the EX-L with navigation jumps $820 (from $39,440 to $40,260), and comes with all the latest upgrades found on the EX and EX-L models plus a Blu-Ray and streaming video rear entertainment system and a new Garmin satellite-linked navigation system.
Like last year, upgrades over the EX-L model include a 110-volt first-row outlet, a second-row HDMI outlet, two wireless headphones, and third row sunshades.
The 2018 Touring model starts at $45,410, an increase of $1,715 from last year's model, but featuring a list of upgrades. These include a new ten-speed automatic transmission, LED headlights and fog lights, Honda's CabinWatch (a closed-circuit camera that keeps an eye on the kids), a hands-free power tailgate, HondaVac built-in vacuum, and 4G LTE Wi-Fi capability.
Like last year, upgrades over the EX-L with navigation also include front and rear parking sensors as well as body-colored side sills.
Finally the top trim Elite (formerly known as the Touring Elite), is priced at $47,570, an increase of $1,305, and includes all of the above upgrades plus new 19-inch alloy wheels, a heated steering wheel, wireless device charging, power folding outside mirrors, LED interior accent lighting, additional cabin noise insulation, rain-sensing wipers, and acoustic laminated rear door glass.
Like 2017, upgrades over the Touring trim include ventilated front seats, an upgraded 550-watt, 11-speaker audio system, a body-colored tailgate spoiler, and gloss black interior and exterior trim bits.
For 2018, the SE trim level has been dropped from the lineup.
