AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- If there was ever a vehicle platform that was all things to everyone that owned it, it would be the minivan. Almost no other automotive segment can match the minivan's flexibility and passenger capacity. Not only can someone transport a gaggle of kids to and from an unending list of activities it can even be used to pick up the items needed for that weekend home improvement project that has been sitting on a list of to do items for far too long. Howdy Honda is proud to announce that the 2014 Honda Odyssey is on the ground and available for sale.

The 2014 Honda Odyssey is mechanically almost identical to the 2013 version. Powering the new 2014 Honda Odyssey is the same 3.5-liter, V-6 engine that can produce 248-horsepower and tow up to 3,500 pounds with the proper equipment added. Honda engineers have made the more fuel-efficient six-speed automatic transmission available on all trim levels. Previous base models of the Honda Odyssey have only been available with a five-speed automatic. Also new for the 2014 Odyssey is a slightly upgraded interior and a subtly refreshed exterior as well as an expanded set of standard features that will add value to the new Honda Odyssey across all trim versions.

Having access to technology while riding in the seven-passenger 2014 Honda Odyssey will not be a problem. Even in the entry level LX trim of the new Odyssey there is an eight-inch multi function touchscreen display as well as hands-free calling capability using Bluetooth technology. The Odyssey also does its part to prevent texting while driving by using its infotainment system to read text messages over the speakers in the vehicle. Other standard equipment includes cruise control, tilting and telescoping steering as well as power windows and locks.
