2025 Honda Odyssey.
Next spring, the current generation Honda Odyssey will be 7 years old. Which is pretty, pretty old. It is about as old as the Chrysler Pacifica, although Chrysler has some sort of an excuse since it’s been in a coma for years with no new models coming out.
Its other competitor, the Toyota Sienna was redesigned in 2020, and the Kia Carnival was also new that same year.
The Honda Odyssey sales numbers are going down every year. from around 99,000 in 2019, to under 48,000 last year. While the Sienna sales went up to over 107,000 in its first full year in 2021. That’s what a new design will do for you: sell more cars.
The Honda Odyssey is obviously due for a redesign, which could be coming since it is based on the same platform as the Pilot, which was new this year. And the Passport, which will be new next year. I think a more attractive and modern Odyssey could find a larger audience. Although Honda will only have their good old 3.5 Liter V6 to power it. While Toyota is making the news by using a standard Hybrid powertrain. At least the Honda V6 is the smoothest choice.
Is a next-generation Honda Ridgeline next? Stay tuned…
