Mollie Slater Ford Fiesta, 2017-11-04 19:54:16. The agile and responsive Ford Performance-tuned chassis will be supported by enhanced Torque Vectoring Control technology that improves road holding and reduces understeer by applying brake force to the inside front wheel when cornering. Three-mode ESC will enable drivers to choose between full system intervention; wide-slip mode with limited intervention; and full system de-activation. Greater personalisation.
Niamh Hart Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:30. Despite sharing the same wheelbase and a similar height and length with the previous generation, from the side Honda new 2018 Odyssey looks longer, lower and more athletic. Front-end features - in particular, the lighting - wrap around to the body sides more emphatically. The model characteristic Z-shaped "lightning bolt" side character lines are more strongly developed, new character lines on the doors add light contrast and visual intrigue, and a new partial black-out treatment for the D-pillar lends the appearance of the Odyssey tapered roof "floating" over the cabin greenhouse.
Niamh Hart Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:32. The new Odyssey greatly benefits from a much more rigid and tightly sealed body with substantially increased use of structural adhesives and sealers, as well as new front and rear suspension subframes and extensive aerodynamic tailoring to form the basis for a quiet vehicle. Additionally, the 2018 Odyssey uses a refined, multiple-tier insulation package that takes noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) countermeasures to the next level, positioning it at the top of its competitive set.

To further improve emissions compliance, the 3.5-liter V6 makes use of an after-catalytic-converter exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system that allows cleaner, cooler EGR gas to be fed back into the intake system. An EGR system, especially one that delivers a cleaner, cooler charge, reduces pumping loss for better fuel efficiency. With its 60-degree V-angle and compact, rigid and lightweight high-pressure die-cast aluminum cylinder block assembly, the 3.5-liter V6 powerplant is exceptionally smooth during operation. Other factors that help reduce engine noise and vibration are a rigid forged-steel crankshaft, die-cast accessory mounts, and a stiff cast-aluminum oil pan that reduces cylinder block flex.
Libby Wade Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:31. The strength of the "tailgate ring" (the circular metal structure surrounding the tailgate) is vitally important for superior vehicle handling, stability and ride quality. Debuting on the 2016 Honda Pilot and applied to the 2018 Odyssey for the first time, this advanced tailgate ring contributes to the new model gain in torsional rigidity, benefiting ride, handling and NVH. For the first time in the Odyssey, body stiffness is enhanced using structural foam inserts in key locations. These include the left and right C-pillar stiffeners, and within an inside bracket that connects the left and right side center frames under the front floor. The improved body stiffness pays dividends in handling precision, ride quality, NVH and crash safety.

Along with acoustic spray foam applied in 14 critical locations, all Odyssey trims feature triple door seals and Active Noise Control technology to help prevent unwanted noise from reaching the passengers. While all trims benefit from thicker front and rear door glass, Elite receives acoustic front/rear door glass and adds an additional carpet barrier layer, acoustic fabric fender liners, additional slide door insulation, and rear wheelhouse insulators.
Paige Dodd Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:31. The Odyssey V6 engine combines Variable Cylinder Management (VCM) with Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control (i-VTEC), which changes the lift profile, timing and lift duration of the intake valves. A switching mechanism allows each cylinder to operate with low-rpm valve lift and duration or high-rpm lift and duration. While operating in 3-cylinder mode, the rear cylinder bank rocker arms deactivate, closing all intake and exhaust valves to minimize pumping losses. The "intelligent" portion of the system is its ability to vary valve operation based on the driving situation and engine rpm. At low rpm, the i-VTEC intake valve timing and lift are optimized (low lift, short duration) for increased torque, which allows a wide range of 3-cylinder operation. As engine rpm builds past 5,350 rpm, the i-VTEC system transitions to a high-lift, long-duration intake cam profile for superior high-rpm engine power.
Libby Wade Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:31. Wraparound chrome trim adds a luxurious touch on all trims, as do chrome door handles on EX and above trims, and body-color lower side sills on the Touring and Elite trims. Re-engineering the sliding side door mechanisms removes the previous models visible rails along the rear body sides, giving the new Odyssey a cleaner appearance, while the larger 18-inch and available 19-inch wheels and tires further bolster the 2018 Odyssey athletic stance.
