2009 Honda Odyssey

arndezarndez Posts: 1
Any one have insight on whether or not the Odyssey will get a major design change for '09? I'm thinking of purchasing an '08 model, but would rather wait for '09 if a major design change is coming. Thanks!

    Nope, it'll be '10 or, more likely, '11 before the 4th generation comes out.

    Check out the Odyssey in Australia. Is this a glimpse of things to come? Dash is very similar to 2008 Acura MDX! - sey/Gallery/

    That's a completely different vehicle. The Odyssey sold in Asia and Australia/New Zealand is a car based people carrier. The North American Odyssey is much larger and was sold in Japan under the Lagreat model name.

    No changes or some very minor changes. 2009 could debut a 2010 model but who knows. The 010 odyssey could get a iPod compatible USB port.

    You just got the mid-cycle update for 2008, and judging by the last generation, there will likely be three years of this style, with a complete update for 2011.

    Anyone know when the 2009's will come out? We are considering a 2008 and have a good offer on the table, but if the 09s are due out this summer we may wait and try to get an even better deal.

    I was just in a dealer in Ontario, CA picking up an Odyssey brochure and I asked the guy this question. He said, like above, that September is when they will start getting the '09's. He also said that they should be still receiving new '08's for the next couple of months. This guy suggested that he's already starting to discount the '08's "a couple thousand dollars". So take that for what it's worth.

    Supposedly all Tourings will be PAX for 09. The 08 Touring non Pax rims should bolt right in for those who want a pax free version. However Honda could drop PAX from the 09 Touring. The 09 Acura RL has no PAX option anymore. I think this is for the Touring all these colors. The non tourings may vary. Touring will get standard NAVI and RES. Hope this helps.

    I thought Navi and RES were already standard on the Touring; it was just a matter of PAX or not.

    I think PAX was a bust; I wouldn't be surprised to see it completely go away in the near future; I think Honda was the only automaker who decided to give it a shot.

    RL3829EW 2009 ODYSSEY 5DR LX 5AT KA
    RL3849EW 2009 ODYSSEY 5DR EX 5AT KA
    RL3869JW 2009 ODYSSEY 5DR EX-L 5AT KA
    RL3879KW 2009 ODYSSEY 5DR EX-L R&N 5AT KA

    I can confirm that the PAX free option will be dropped on the 09 touring so get your 08 Non PAX tourings while you can.

    I hope the Sterling Gray color will be available with an Olive interior. I think that the deletion of Sage Brush Pearl was one of the worst decisions they ever made. I have a Sage Brush with Olive and to be honest, it is more the interior color that matters to me the most. Now I am down to just Slate Green and Nimbus Gray. I don't think it would be worth it for Honda to make an interior color available on only one exterior. I think they will include it on either at least two, or none. You can see Bali Blue and Sterling Gray on the Pilot's page.

    Will the 2009 Odyssey Touring come in Dark Cherry Pearl? I've seen that color in print ads but not on the options page. The 08 has that color on the lower models only.
  • pmicklepmickle Posts: 20
    That's weird, especially since they have a picture of a 2008 Cherry Pearl Touring on the website. It says Touring on the back and has the chrome garnish on the tailgate. I know its the 2008 because it has the new lights. The only thing is that there are no parking sensors.

    Its the third one from the bottom in the right column.

    Hi. How do you know these are the 2009 colors? We are desperately trying to decide whether to buy a 2008 or 2009 odyssey or toyota sienna.....but haven't been able to confirm the 2009 colors yet. We are not crazy about any of the 2008 colors.

    Are you sure about the BALI BLUE? The 2008 Odyssey currently comes in the Baltic blue, and just wondered if it was a typo?

    Do you know what the Toyota Sienna 2009 colors will be? We have called around to different dealers, but nobody seems to be saying anything, even though they will be out by early September!

    If you know anything, please email me back asap! Thank you!

    I hope things don't get too drastic since there is only so much that can be
    done with tbe "basic" functional styling of a van. Given the Pilot, Ridgeline
    and now Acura TL re-dos, I am afraid to see what Honda will come up with.
  • rv65rv65 Posts: 1,076
    This is actually from the Honda Interactive network for dealers. Someone leaked the info. The 09 Sienna I can't comment from that. Probably not too many changes on the 09 Sienna. Both are great vans.
  • pmicklepmickle Posts: 20
    I can confirm that Bali Blue and Baltic Blue are two different colors. The 2008 Odyssey is available in Baltic Blue and the 2009 Pilot is available in Bali Blue. You can also see some of the new Odyssey colors on the Pilot page, like Sterling Grey.
  • merlingpmerlingp Posts: 1
    I would like to know if anyone has heard if the all models of the 2009 Odyssey will have the variable cylinder management feature that is only available on the EX-L and Touring for 2008? All of the 09 pilots have this feature and the 09 Accord V-6 also.
  • lcl2lcl2 Posts: 2
    Thank you for your reply! I very much appreciate it! If you DO hear what the Toyota colors will be for 2009, or if anyone else out there has heard something, please let me know. Thanks again!
  • Has anyone seen Baltic Blue and Bali Blue side by side to be able to compare and describe the difference (if any0 of these two colors?
  • rv65rv65 Posts: 1,076
    EXL (PTG)
    EXL-T (PAX)

    So there may be a pax free Touring. T is touring. PTG is power tailgate. The EX-L will finally get the power tailgate. Hope this helps.
  • rv65rv65 Posts: 1,076
    More hp for VCM equipped models. Bluetooth is now available on EX-L's with NAV and RES. Again you get the power tailgate on EX-L's and the usual color changes.
  • pmicklepmickle Posts: 20
    If this is true and the Power Tailgate is coming to all leather equipped Odyssey's, what will be the real upgrade to the Touring? It looks to me like Honda is slowly trying to merge the two trim levels. I know that there are still a few nice things that the Touring has, but to me that is a very exclusive loss to the Touring. Every year there are more and more Touring features being stripped away and added to other models. (Tri-Zone Climate, Leather Steering Wheel, Leather Shift Knob, Power Tailgate, BlueTooth, Rearview Camera, Tire Pressure Monitoring)
  • rv65rv65 Posts: 1,076
    TPMS is a feature that all new cars must have.

    Touring has larger wheels, better stereo, and other features.
  • pmicklepmickle Posts: 20
    Yes all cars are supposed to have them, but Honda added them several years before they had to.
  • fxguyfxguy Posts: 132
    The Honda website lets you configure the 2009 EX-L with bluetooth but without Navi. I wonder if that is a mistake.
  • rv65rv65 Posts: 1,076
    There is an accessory bluetooth model for non navi models. Doesn't mute the stereo but it works.
  • fxguyfxguy Posts: 132
    So i assume it also does not display the called ID anywhere within the cars dashboard?
