What You Have to Get From 2022 Honda Odyssey

That’s, not what we have. We have the standard gray and, as far as the rest of the front, this is going to be the same as what you saw with the refresh model. So you ‘ Ve got this new grille on board. It’s, got a lot less chrome than what you previously had, and it is finished in a gloss black for this model. You do still have a piece of chrome, though that goes across the top, and that leads into the headlights.

Exterior

Now these are fully led and that’s standard on every single model. You also have an led daytime running light right here. You have incandescent turn signals down at the bottom and all, but the very base model will also come with led fog lights. Now checking out the wheels uh, all most of the models will come standard with an 18-inch alloy. However, the top two trim levels come with 19 inch alloys.

This to me is the most aesthetically pleasing wheel option, because the elite ones are a little bit of a weird design and then moving beyond that. We have our mirrors. Of course, these are going to be heated as well as having blind spot monitoring on all, but the lx trim level, and if you want power, folding and auto dimming, that will require the fully loaded elite all right now there is a big change for 2022.

With this 2022 Honda Odyssey, as you can see, we have a two-tone white roof on this one. No, i can’t even say it with a straight face, but we don’t get much snow here so might as well enjoy it. While we have it, but there’s, really no changes for 2022 Honda Odyssey, with the odyssey as far as the side and rear design.

Now, of course, i refreshed it last year, so you are going to have this new black piece of plastic, with a silver trim going through it. That kind of gives it a more unique and sporty design. Then, off on this side, we do still have our fully incandescent tail lights.

Every single component in here is incandescent, and then we have our touring badge and of course, as you would expect there’s, not going to be any exposed exhausts now for 2022 Honda Odyssey. Your safety systems are going to remain unchanged, but last year they went ahead and added the entire honda safety suite standard on all of the models.

So, even on that base 2022 Honda Odyssey LX, you’re, going to have ford emergency, braking of pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, auto high beam headlamps and lane keeping assist well guys if you haven’t taken a second to hit that subscribe button already. Please go ahead and do that. It really helps us out it. Doesn’t cost you anything. So what are you losing? But now let’s. Go ahead and check out that inside, where your family’s, gonna be spending their time before we take it out in a span.

Interior

Color and material options so like most honda products, the lx and the ex will come standard with cloth seating. However, once you get to the exl or above that’s, where you’ll get real leather seating, and that comes in your choice of black gray, beige or mocha colors.

Now, turning over here to your door trim, you’ll, see the same materials reflected up here. So i have a nice leather trim across the armrest as well as above it, and then the touring and elite trim levels will come with the piano black accents. We also have two person memory seating, as well as four fully automatic windows heading down here to your seat.

This is the standard 12-way power dusting seat on all, but the very base model and then, like i was already saying, we do have a real leather seat, which of course, is incredibly comfortable. Now, just a few short months ago. This was refreshed for the 2021 model year, so for the 2022 Honda Odyssey model year you have the same interior upgrades on board so across our upper dash. This is all going to be covered in a leatherette material, with a stitching detail.

As we move down, we have some silver trim. You’ll, see a lot more of this piano. Black trim, which i said like i already mentioned, is a part of the top two trim levels. Then, as we move down, you’ll find some more hard touch materials, but of course everything feels super solid in that typical honda way, as well as very durable and to start the odyssey, put your foot on the brake and press the standard button And once the 2022 Honda Odysseyfire is up, you will be greeted with the standard 7 inch reconfigurable gauge cluster, with the two analog gauges on the outside edge uh.

This is the same as last year, so you just have a lot of different settings, including the settings for your safety systems right in there and then coming back to the steering wheel. Of course we have electric power, assisted steering and we have a nice leather wrapped steering wheel.

We also have some connections inside so when we get these coupons out, i mean this is this is just a joke guys, it just swallows it up no problem and we still have a lot more storage from there. So we have got another little slot here. This would be a wireless phone charging pad on 2022 Honda Odyssey Elite. We have our two cup holders and then we just have a gigantic bin, where you can stick anything like a diaper bag or purse.

We have our dvd player as well as some more connections through there. Now, of course, we can’t have that much storage because we have the shifter mounted up here and out of the way.  This is honda’s, typical electronic shifter. So you just push down d4 drive, you can press again for the sport mode and surprisingly, we do have paddle shifters on board for reverse. You’ll, pull back on the trigger and when you do, you will be greeted with this backup camera across every single trim level.

As you can see, we do have active trajectory on all, but the lx and you have three different angles. You can switch between, but there is no 360 camera and you do also get an electronic parking brake as well as brake hold all right.

So now let’s move above that to our climate control. So this is a three zone: automatic climate setup with a nice toggle here to adjust your temperature. Most of the controls are located here, but some of them you will have to press the front climate, for instance, to change the zones, and you can do the same for the rear climate as well, and then down below that.

If you want to choose the elite trim level. Take a look now at our infotainment system, so this is the 8 inch display which comes on all, but the base lx trim level and is running the new honda link system. Now most of the system is the same as pretty much any honda product. So we have standard android, auto standard apple carplay. We also have navigation built in to the touring and elite trim levels, but i want to take a look over here at some of the additional apps that are 2022 Honda Odyssey exclusive.

You can zoom in and out things like that, and you also have the ability to turn on and off the intercom system so that they can hear your voice amplified to the back via the speakers now. Moving above that, exl and above get the auto dimming mirror with homemade universal remotes, and those are also the trim levels that include the standard size, moon, roof, alright, so sitting in the rear seats of the odyssey.

This is hands down the most important thing about this vehicle because of course, if you have a minivan, i’d, say 99 chance that you have a family that’s, going to be riding back here. So let’s break down some of the features uh for one. I’m, going to go ahead and close this door because it’s pretty cold. As you can see, it is a power door and that’s going to be on all, but the very base lx model. Now, as far as the rear leg room figures are concerned, we have 41 inches of your leg.

Room 40 inches of your headroom, which does place it above the chrysler pacifica. So this is a large amount of space, as you would expect, and behind your seating position i have, i would say, six inches of rear legroom.

2022 Honda Odyssey Cargo Space

My feet can slide up underneath the seat, and we can also slide these seats forward and back as well. As you probably know this. By now, the 2022 Honda Odyssey seats can also slide side to side and that’s, also going to be a feature that’s available on all, but the very base lx trim now another one that’s, going to be on All but the lx is going to be the rear window.

Sunshades here on the side and then, as far as here in the center, we have cup holders dropping down. We have an hdmi port, two smart charging, usb ports and then you’re gonna notice up here in the top on this touring. We have the rear seat, entertainment system, so that’s. Gon na keep you and your family all happy now for when you’re hauling, your kids friends around and need to get into the third row. All you have to do is locate this little lever right here that folds the seat forward and slides it up.

Specification

Now, as you can see, it’s, really a pretty powerful motor um, a lot of different powertrain options have kind of been introduced inside of this segment. As you may know, the sienna went hybrid only, but this continues with a more traditional style.

2022 Honda Odyssey Specification

V6 engine, so this is a three and a half liter v6 280 horsepower 262 pound-feet of torque. Those are good numbers for the class and uh. You know like we just demonstrated it moves this big thing around pretty well yeah, and you know i do just want to touch.

I mean obviously the sienna is this vehicle’s biggest competition and um. You know, i think it’s. A unique benefit to have the v6 as the only engine on this, because it gives you that choice. I don’t mind the honda 2022 Honda Odyssey hybrid powertrain, but it’s, not a smooth v6 like this, but you know just cruising down the highway.

We’re going 59 miles per hour. I mean that is what this vehicle does best. It’s, designed to do just family cruising, go down the i-75 down to florida for vacation and just be in ultimate comfort, and that’s. What this odyssey really shines at, as you can see, we just went over an overpass here and it is incredibly smooth and the ride quality is great. Now we will also get a sound level reading when we get up to speed after this red light.

How much the 2022 Honda Odyssey Price?

That, for us, is going to be just this mixture of space and features uh. The 2022 Honda Odyssey really just is a strong contender, and especially if you compare like within the honda lineup to the pilot, you’re, going to find more space and more features inside of this auto sale, alrighty and wrapping stuff up.

2022 Honda Odyssey Price

2022 Honda Odyssey Price

Let’s. Go ahead and talk about the pricing so for 2022 the prices are going to rise around 300 bucks on all the trim levels, so the lx is $32.090 ex $35,490 exl, $38,760. touring $42.800 and the elite is going to be $47.820. when that Elite does not rise 300 dollars because it is missing the vacuum cleaner so that’s, the only one that stays the same. So at the beginning, we asked amongst all the new competition uh. Is this odyssey the best choice, still a good choice?
