6AT to be standard on all 2014 Odysseys

The Odyssey will be receiving its mid-cycle model updates for the 2014 year and we're hearing that it will receive some interesting updates. The factory will be accepting orders from dealers beginning next month, and we're told that timing-wise this points to an onsale date of mid to late Summer.

We can confirm (from the order sheet that we saw) that 6-speed automatic transmissions will be standard across the board for the 2014 Odyssey. As for the other updates, you can probably pretty much guess the list of what's coming, but we've specifically heard about the following items:

  • Earth Dreams engine (we expect that to mean the 3/6-cyl VCM + VTEC setup employed by the 2013 Accord).
  • Lane Watch (mirror-cam)
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Multi view backup camera
  • (POSSIBLE) LED headlights/taillights for Touring Elite Model
  • Adaptive cruise control

There could be more stuff coming as well, but these are some of the key items that we've heard.

UPDATE: We just received this listing of available colors:
LX
OBSIDIAN BLUE PEARL/GRAY
MODERN STEEL METALLIC/GRAY
DARK CHERRY PEARL/BEIGE

Last month, the Odyssey trailed Dodge, Toyota, and Chrysler in monthly sales, so it's probably a good time for the MMC to be rolling out soon.
