It's nearing the end of 2016 and with the LA Auto show closed out, any news would be celebrated. Unfortunately, Honda has been completely mum on everything related to their plans for the Honda Odyssey. Highly awaiting what the new 2017 / 2018 Honda Odyssey will entail and when it'll debut, I'll save you the search. This is what I found on the popular and awesome Odyclub Forum. Thanks mlempire5.
I spent about a Hour yesterday, Friday 11/ 25 , in the Honda Booth at the Los Angeles Auto show. I asked if folks have been asking about the new Odyssey? The response was " All day everyday!." I talked to Honda specialists, not just booth attendants that have no idea of Honda inside information. I promised not to reveal what each person specialty was in regards to sharing what 2017/2018 Odyssey information they felt comfortable to reveal.
There will be no new Odyssey release before spring of 2017 at the earliest. a few department leaders have seen the outside of the new body, nobody has seen the interior as of yet. Nobody is sure about drive train details except to say they expect the same V-6 from the Pilot will be carried over to the Odyssey. Nobody is sure about the transmission regarding 8 or 10 speed transmission. There has been no work done on brochure development because there are not enough model details released to Honda staff.
