2020 Honda Odyssey Redesign, Type R, Specs, and Release Date. The Honda Odyssey Type R is categorized as a mid-size minivan, and its purpose is for family needs. The fifth-generation Odyssey was launched at the end of October 2013 and it is still present on the market. Now, we are going to talk about the newest model which is the 2020 Honda Odyssey Type R.
It is paired with the aggressiveness and style of the Type R badge. With this in mind, the crazy thing about this car is that it is family oriented but still very manlike.
It is a lot weaker than the Type R standard 2.0 liter which provides 306 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. With this in mind, Honda has two options, to put either the Odyssey’s standard engine or Type R’s.
This engine delivers the full 500 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque but the Odyssey Type R’s will have a different setup. To conclude, under the hood of the 2020 Honda Odyssey Type R we can find the 3.5-liter V-6 engine which provides a 445 horsepower and 373 pound-feet of torque.
If the Odyssey Type R brings the same style as well as the Honda Civic, it will be full hit. At the front fascia, there will be the gloss black grille with red Honda emblem and the Type R emblem.
There is the fender vent which is right above those Type R wheels. To complete the style around back, Honda puts the Civic Type R’s spoiler.
The inside of the 2020 Honda Odyssey Type R is slightly modified for the perfect balance of family functionality. The front seats, the instrument cluster, and the infotainment display of the previous model are replaced with the Civic Type R’s.

As we know from before, the Type R models are not cheap at all. The “Elite” commands $46,670, but let’s be aware the Odyssey Type R is much more powerful so it must be more expensive.
