Frank Ancona Honda Excited for 2017 Honda Odyssey’s Arrival; One of the Best Selling Minivans in the Country
The fourth generation of the Honda Odyssey, one of the best selling minivans in the country, has finally arrived. According to Honda, the Odyssey has been the most popular minivan with individual American car buyers for each of the past six years and is leading the pack once again for 2016. The minivan has also been the top choice of buyers under 35 every year since 2013. The 2016 model was also recognized by U.S. News & World Report as one of the Best Minivans for Families for a record-breaking sixth year as well as earning recognition as one of Kelley Blue Book’s Best Family Cars of 2016.
The new 2017 Honda Odyssey will continue to offer class-leading fuel-economy ratings of 19/27/22 mpg city/highway/combined, respectively. With the ability to carry eight passengers comfortably, the whole family will be able to comfortably enjoy long road trips. The new model will also see the SE and EX-L trims fitted with the acoustic windshield found in previous models. This feature helps to reduce noise from entering the cabin, making every drive quieter and more enjoyable.
The Odyssey utilizes the next-generation of the Honda Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure and makes extensive use of high-strength steel. This results in a very strong front frame and door structure for increased protection in a frontal collision. The new model will be powered by a 3.5-liter, 24-valve V-6 engine that produces up to 248 horsepower. The engine is also paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission that, together with the new engine, helps the Odyssey receive such an efficient EPA fuel-economy.
For those looking for the best of the best, consider an upgrade to the Odyssey SE and Touring Elite models featuring HondaVac. This in-vehicle vacuum cleaner system is designed to help families keep the Odyssey’s interior neat and clean. The device, designed for dry use, operates on the vehicle’s 12-volt electrical system and easily surpasses the performance of handheld rechargeable vacuums.
