Honda Manufacturing of Alabama (HMA) celebrated the start of production of the 2018 Odyssey minivan today. Located in Lincoln, Alabama, the assembly plant is the sole producer of the fourth-generation Odyssey, which will arrive in Honda dealerships nationwide this spring.

"This is a celebration for our entire Honda team of associates who have been committed to bringing an all-new, high tech, family-friendly Odyssey to our customers," said Jeff Tomko, president of HMA. "I congratulate all of our associates for their commitment to quality for this new vehicle, which ushers in a new level of features and functionality with the goal of creating new value for our customers."

In addition to the Odyssey, HMA produces the Pilot, Ridgeline, Acura MDX and V-6 engines for each vehicle. The assembly plant has produced over 4 million vehicles and engines at the plant since its doors opened in late 2001.

All-new for 2018, the Odyssey is gaining a host of new features and innovations in an attempt to stay competitive with the Chrysler Pacifica. It's exclusively powered by a 280 horsepower 3.5-liter V-6 mated to either a nine or 10-speed automatic transmission.
