Honda Increased the Prices of its Upcoming Models


Honda has recently confirmed that the company is set to release the 2013 versions of its CR-V, Pilot, and Odyssey this coming September. However, this confirmation has also stressed out that the prices of these models will be higher that what the current versions have.

The 2013 Honda Pilot as soon as it hits the company’s dealerships in September will be sold at a starting price of $30, 250 including the destination charge of $830. Given this starting price, the 2013 Honda Pilot is more expensive compared to the 2012 model by $800. The top-of-the-line model of the Pilot on the other hand will be sold at a starting price of $42,000 including the shipping fees.

Based on the information obtained from a number of reliable sources, the increase in the price of the 2013 Honda Pilot might have been triggered by the availability of additional standard features such as the USB integration, Bluetooth, rearview camera, 8-inch intelligent high resolution Multi-Information display, and automatic climate controls.

The 2013 Honda CR-V just like the Pilot has also earned a slight increase in its price. The price of the 2013 Honda CR-V will start at $23,525 including the destination charge of $830. The starting price of the upcoming version reflects a $200 increase compared to the 2012 model’s cost. The price of the range-topping version of the 2013 Honda CR-V on the other hand will start $31,025 including the charges that are allotted for the vehicle’s shipping.

The 2013 Honda Odyssey that would also be released in the US automobile market will be sold at a starting price of $29,405 including the destination charge of $830. Such figure reflects a $200 increase from the price of the previous year’s version of the Odyssey.

A lot of car experts believe that the increase on the price of the 2013 Honda Odyssey was probably triggered by the increase in the number of standard features offered on the vehicle. The upcoming version will be equipped with features such as the Bluetooth and the 8-inch Multi-Information display. In addition to this, Honda will also be offering the optional satellite navigation system on the EX-L trim and standard on the Touring version.
