Specifications of Honda Odyssey 2022 3.5 V6 Direct Injection (SOHC, i-VTEC)
General characteristics of Honda Odyssey 2022 3.5 V6 Direct Injection (SOHC, i-VTEC)
In our opinion, the Dodge Grand Caravan became irrelevant because its maker just gave up. There's only so much you can do with a box, right? Honda disproves this outlook, as the Odyssey is at least interesting to look at. The 2021 round of upgrades included a restyled grille and front bumper, a new layout for the headlights, and new black trim under the rear window.
The front end with the new blackout grille and chrome strip is slightly more aggressive, and the side profile is handsome. Base models get 18-inch wheels, while top-end models get 19-inch alloys that fill the arches rather nicely. LED headlights and LED daytime running lights are included across the range, with LED fog lights equipped from the EX. Power sliding doors are made standard from the EX upward while a one-touch power moonroof and a power tailgate features from the EX-L trim upwards.
As a minivan we expect the Honda Odyssey to offer dimensions conducive to ferrying a large family around. Its wheelbase is 118.1 inches long, just two inches shy of the largest family SUVs sold in the US. According to Honda, the overall length is 205.2 inches. There's a minimal overhang at the front but a copious amount at the rear where you want it. The base LX model is 68.3 inches tall, while the rest of the range measures 69.6 inches. All models are 78.5 inches wide. The LX trim is the lightest in the group, weighing in at 4,398 pounds, while the top-spec Elite is the heftiest, tipping the scales at 4,603 lbs.
Honda's color palette for the Odyssey is quite dull, which makes sense - while this particular minivan has some nice design features, you hardly need a stunning, extroverted color to emphasize it. The base LX is available in only four hues, of which Lunar Silver Metallic, Modern Steel Metallic, and Obsidian Blue Pearl are no-cost options. Platinum White Pearl costs $395. From the EX trim and upward, Crystal Black Pearl, Pacific Pewter, and the all-new Raidan Red Metallic II are added, with a surcharge of $395. Discontinued colors include Forest Mist and Deep Scarlet Pearl.
