Compared to sheet steel components made of many individual parts that are welded together, they are eight kilograms (17.6 lb) lighter. This construction allows a very stiff connection between the upper links and the body for the best-possible steering response - optimal conditions for dynamic handling.
Caitlin Duncan Honda, 2017-10-18 23:59:56. The Odyssey new engine - from the Honda EarthDreams® Technology powertrain series - is rated at 280 peak horsepower and 262 lb.-ft. peak torque. Peak engine output is up 32 horsepower and 12 pound-feet of torque from the previous model, with increased torque over the engine entire operating (rpm) range. The new, more efficient engine and transmissions, along with as much as a 75-pound reduction in vehicle weight (EX-L trim) and improved aerodynamics, among other reductions to running resistance, result in enhanced performance and fuel efficiency. With its 60-degree V-angle, the Odyssey V6 engine is inherently smooth and has compact overall dimensions that allow efficient packaging within the vehicle. The engine has a high-pressure die-cast lightweight aluminum alloy block with cast-in-place iron cylinder liners. Made with a centrifugal spin-casting process, the thin-wall liners are high in strength and low in porosity. The block incorporates a deep-skirt design with four bolts per bearing cap for rigid crankshaft support and minimized noise and vibration. The engine also uses a high-tensile strength steel crankshaft is for minimum weight.
Shannon Griffin Honda, 2017-10-18 23:59:37. The 2018 Odyssey shares the same 118.1-inch wheelbase with the previous-generation Odyssey for superb second- and third-row seating roominess, easy ingress and egress, and superior ride comfort. The overall length increases fractionally to 203.2 inches due to a 0.4-inch longer rear overhang, while the width decreases by 1.1-inches to reduce frontal area, reducing aerodynamic drag. Overall height is nearly identical. The dimensional adjustments do not compromise interior roominess, as the new Odyssey offers fractionally more front and third-row headroom, retains almost identical overall passenger volume, and offers more cargo volume, with two inches more length in the cargo area, than the previous generation.
Kiera Shaw Honda, 2017-10-18 23:58:17. New on the 2018 Honda Odyssey are center door rails hidden under the rear side glass that replace the visible rails located on the body sides behind the rear doors on the second- through 4th-generation Odyssey. The result is a clean, seamless appearance for the rear body side and no visible side door rails or components. A safety latch prevents the left-hand sliding door from opening when the fuel lid is open. Like the front doors and tailgate, the side doors feature full 360-degree seals to reduce wind and road noise, water and debris from entering the vehicle.
Eleanor Norton Honda, 2017-10-19 00:00:12. Included on the Odyssey LX, EX, EX-L and EX-L N/R, projector-beam-style halogen headlights feature round outboard low beams and round inboard high-beam illumination. The Odyssey LX headlights have an auto-off feature to protect the battery state of charge if the driver leaves the vehicle without switching off the lights, while Odyssey EX and above trims add the convenience and safety of auto on/off high beams (AHB).
Paige Dodd Honda, 2017-10-18 23:59:20. 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.
Paige Dodd Toyota, 2017-10-18 07:14:45. The unit‘s gear ratios have been carefully selected for enhanced power delivery as well as optimal fuel efficiency, with the mid-range gears utilizing close ratios to improve passing power. The new gearbox also includes a torque converter that offers a wider range of lock-up (when compared to the previous 6-speed automatic transmission) for a more direct driving feel while contributing to improved fuel efficiency through suppressed engine revving. Other impressive features engineered into this 8-speed automatic transmission include new control logic, for more precise matching of engine torque, and smoother transitions when downshifting.
Niamh Hart Honda, 2017-10-18 23:58:59. Exclusive to the Odyssey Touring and Elite trims, LED low- and high-beam headlights provide improved nighttime illumination and visibility compared to contemporary high-intensity discharge (HID) headlights. Six LEDs serve as low beams and three LEDs serve as high beams on each side. Besides improving driver confidence and passive safety, the LED headlights use less energy, helping to enhance fuel efficiency by reducing engine loads. In addition, the LED headlights last up to five times longer than HID headlights and up to 10 times longer than halogen headlights - contributing to less frequent replacement and the associated cost savings. An auto on/off function is also included.
