Honda Announces Pricing for All-New 2011 Odyssey
Trend-setting minivan adds functionality, style and fuel economy; Odyssey Touring model rates a class-leading 28 mpg

TORRANCE, Calif. September 09, 2010


The all-new 2011 Honda Odyssey minivan is set to debut at dealers on September 30 with a manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) ranging from $27,800 for the value-oriented Odyssey LX to $43,250 for the ultra-premium Odyssey Touring Elite, plus a destination and handling charge1 of $780 per vehicle, American Honda Motor Co., Inc., announced today.

With a wide range of new features adding value for economy, comfort and convenience, the increase in 2011 Odyssey pricing represents a 2.5-percent difference on a sales-weighted basis compared to the 2010 models being replaced (approximately $840 on average).

The completely redesigned Odyssey improves for 2011 with greater interior functionality, a more distinctive style and higher fuel economy. Across all available models — the Odyssey LX, EX, EX-L, Touring and now, the new Touring Elite — more than 50 standard and available features have been added for 2011 to enhance comfort, convenience, efficiency and travel fun.

"The all-new Odyssey is set to once again redefine the minivan segment as the ultimate family vehicle," said Erik Berkman, vice president of Corporate Planning and Logistics for American Honda. "Never before has so much space, functionality and comfort been combined with this much style, technology and fuel economy."

Significant enhancements to the interior include a new "3-mode" second-row seat design that is more comfortable for center passengers (Odyssey EX and above). The 2011 Odyssey is equipped with a total of five LATCH attachment points (four in the Odyssey LX), the most of any vehicle currently available on the market as of 2011 (up from three in the previous model). The one-motion, 60/40 split 3rd-row Magic Seat®, one of the Odyssey's original concepts and most versatile features, is positioned for more legroom and is even easier to operate for 2011.

Dramatic new styling creates a more dynamic appearance unlike any other minivan with the introduction of a tapered cabin and a signature "lightning bolt" belt line. The lightning bolt belt line improves the outward view for third-row passengers. The body's enhanced aerodynamic shape along with engineering improvements throughout the vehicle contribute to a class-leading EPA highway fuel-economy rating of 28 milesper- gallon (mpg) on Odyssey Touring models, an improvement of 3 mpg compared to the 2010 Odyssey Touring model and the most for any eight-passenger minivan.

A more powerful and efficient 3.5-liter i-VTEC V-6 engine features Variable Cylinder Management (standard on all models for 2011) and produces 248 hp (+4 hp over 2010) while delivering an EPA-estimated city/highway/combined fuel economy of 19/28/22 mpg on Odyssey Touring models (18/27/21 mpg on Odyssey LX, EX and EX-L models). For enhanced driving refinement on Odyssey Touring models, a six-speed automatic transmission debuts as a standard feature. All other models receive the five-speed automatic transmission.

New technology available on certain models includes a rear entertainment system with a 16.2-inch ultrawide split-screen display and an auxiliary High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) video input, an "intelligent" Multi-Information Display (i-MID) with customizable wallpaper, integration of FM traffic data on navigation models and much more. Thoughtful features have been added throughout like the available cool box, front bag hook, available flip-up trash bag ring and more. Popular features like the available back-up camera and available conversation mirror continue to be offered.

An extensive list of safety equipment comes standard on every Odyssey. The Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure is a Honda-exclusive body design that enhances occupant protection and crash compatibility in frontal collisions. Additional standard safety equipment includes Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®), commonly referred to as electronic stability control; anti-lock brakes with electronic brake distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist; three-row side-curtain airbags with a rollover sensor; driver's and front passenger's side airbags with passenger-side Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS); dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags; and active front seat head restraints.

With a wide range of new features adding value for economy, comfort and convenience, the increase in 2011 Odyssey pricing represents a 2.5-percent difference on a sales-weighted basis compared to the 2010 models being replaced (approximately $840 on average).

The 2011 Odyssey is truly an American-made vehicle, designed, engineered and assembled in the United States2, representing the vast and ever-growing capabilities of Honda in North America. Virtually every aspect of the 2011 Odyssey has been envisioned, developed, tested and finalized by Honda associates throughout California, Ohio and Alabama. The Odyssey is produced exclusively at Honda Manufacturing of Alabama (HMA) using domestic and globally sourced parts. The Lincoln, Alabama, plant conducts synchronous production of vehicles and engines and is the exclusive global producer of Odyssey minivans, Pilot sport utility vehicles and Ridgeline pickup trucks.
