Across the model line, Odyssey models share the same engine, the familiar 3.5-liter V-6 that now displaces 248 horsepower and 250 pound-feet of torque. All trim levels except for the Touring and Touring Elite are paired with a five-speed automatic; the top two trim levels receive a six-speed automatic. Cylinder deactivation is standard across the line, and all models run on regular unleaded fuel. Major standard safety features on all models go beyond anti-lock brakes and airbags for each row of seating to include electronic brake distribution, vehicle stability control, and a tire-pressure monitoring system.
Base LX models are well-equipped, but carry a significant increase over Toyota’s recently designed Sienna, which starts at $25,270 but offers a four-cylinder engine. (A comparably-equipped base V-6 Sienna is more expensive, and starts at $29,910.) The seven-seat LX model comes standard with dual-zone manual air conditioning, power driver’s seat, width-adjustable second-row seating, an aux-in jack, and remote entry.
