2011 Honda Odyssey prices start at $27,800, only V6 engine offered

2011 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite

When Honda unveiled the 2011 Odyssey minivan earlier this year, it provided very limited details on technical specs, EPA rating and pricing. Well, today all that information has been made available and we can now confirm that the 2011 Honda Odyssey will start at $27,800 for the entry-level LX model when it hits dealerships later this fall.

“The Odyssey has been an established minivan segment leader for more than a decade in terms of packaging innovation, handling, passenger accommodation, safety, quality, long-term value and overall refinement,” Honda said in a statement. “Improvements to the fourth-generation Odyssey represent a new Honda vision for the ‘ultimate in family transportation’.”

Besides the totally redesigned exterior you’ll notice a brand new exterior with a bunch of new convenient improvements including 15 cup holders and a new “3-mode” second-row seat design that expands laterally, along with a simpler-to-operate, one-motion, 60/40 split 3rd-row Magic Seat (You can learn more about packaging, options and features after the jump).

2011 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite - Interior

Power for the redesigned and repackaged 2011 Honda Odyssey comes from a 3.5L i-VTEC V-6 engine with Variable Cylinder Management (VCM) making 248-horsepower and 250 lb-ft. of torque. All 2011 Odyssey LX and Odyssey EX models come standard with a 5-speed automatic transmission that helps them average an EPA rated fuel-economy of 18/27 mpg (city/highway) or 21 mpg combined. The 2011 Honda Odyssey Touring ($40,755) and Touring Elite ($43,250) are mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission, which allows for an EPA rated fuel-economy of 19/28 mpg or 22 mpg combined.

In comparison the 2011 Toyota Sienna starts at $24,460 for the 187-hp 4-cylinder entry-level model. It gets an EPA estimated fuel-economy of 19/24 mpg. The 2011 Honda Odyssey does not offer a 4-cylinder option.
