Admittedly, there aren’t any drastic departures in store for the 2013 Honda CR-V, 2013 Honda Odyssey, and 2013 Honda Pilot – but there are a few small revisions in both content and pricing.
2013 Honda CR-V
As Honda’s compact crossover was completely redesigned for the 2012 model year, we’re not too surprised to learn the 2013 model doesn’t change all that much. In fact, its price tag only creeps up by $200 across the board.
The base 2013 Honda CR-V LX starts at $23,525, including $830 in destination fees. Standard equipment includes air conditioning, cruise control, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, a rear-view camera, and remote keyless entry. The 2013 CR-V LX, which starts at $25,625, adds a six-speaker audio system, tinted windows, a security system, a power moonroof, and 17-inch aluminum wheels. The top-tier 2013 Honda CR-V EX-L starts at $28,075, and adds leather seating, a 10-way power driver’s seat, and automatic dual-zone climate control. EX-L models are also available with a rear-seat DVD entertainment system for another $700, or an optional navigation system for an extra $1500.
As was the case last year, each 2013 Honda CR-V model is available with all-wheel drive. Regardless of trim level, moving from front- to all-wheel drive adds another $1500 to the purchase price.
2013 Honda Odyssey
Honda’s people-mover was completely overhauled for the 2011 model year, but the 2013 Odyssey only receives a few slight revisions, and a model-wide $200 price bump.
The base LX model now shares its center stack with the higher-trim Odyssey EX, and subsequently receives the 8-inch display screen, rear-view camera, Bluetooth phone/ audio connectivity, USB audio input, and Honda’s CD Library function (which provides 2-gigabytes of internal memory for ripping CDs to MP3 files) as standard equipment. The 2013 Odyssey LX now starts at $29,405, including destination.
The 2013 Odyssey EX runs another $3150 over the LX, and adds 17-inch aluminum wheels, power sliding doors, tri-zone automatic climate control, HomeLink, integrated second-row window sunshades, a removable center console, and a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat. Odyssey EX-L models, which start at $35,955, add leather seating surfaces, a power tailgate, a power front passenger seat, heated front seating surfaces, a power moonroof, XM satellite radio, and a cooled storage compartment in the instrument panel. EX-L models can be bundled with a rear-seat DVD entertainment system for another $1600, or a satellite navigation system for an extra $2000.
As always, the 2013 Odyssey Touring – which starts at $42,260 — adds a long list of standard features, including a six-speed automatic in place of the five-speed automatic used on the LX, EX, and EX-L trims.2013 Odyssey Touring models receive fog lamps, front and rear parking sensors, navigation and rear-seat DVD entertainment systems, sunshades for second and third row passengers, and a one-motion, flat-folding 60/40 split third-row seat. The 2013 Odyssey Touring Elite model adds another $2495 to the Touring’s price tag, and includes HID headlamps, a blind-spot detection system, a widescreen rear DVD entertainment system, and a 650-watt surround-sound system.
2013 Honda Pilot
Honda’s largest crossover hasn’t been completely overhauled , but the 2013 Pilot does gain a few new standard features across the board, including Bluetooth connectivity, a USB audio input, a high-res information screen, automatic climate controls, and a rear-view camera.
The amended 2013 Pilot LX model now starts at $30,250, which is roughly $800 more than a comparable 2012 model. The 2013 Pilot EX, which carries a MSRP of $32,500, adds a tri-zone climate control system, XM satellite radio, a 10-way power driver’s seat, body-color mirrors and door handles, aluminum wheels, fog lamps, and Honda’s CD Library feature.
The EX-L, which goes a step further and includes a power moonroof, leather seating surfaces, and a power tailgate, starts at $35,750. EX-L models are also available with a navigation system and a rear-seat DVD system, which adds $1600 and $2000 respectively, to the price tag. The top-tier 2013 Pilot Touring model, which starts at $39,570, adds both those options to its long list of standard features, along with heated exterior mirrors, integrated second-row window sunshades, and a 650-watt, 10-speaker audio system.
All-wheel-drive remains available on all 2013 Pilot trim levels, and adds $1600 to the vehicle’s MSRP.
