The New York Auto Show is just around the corner and Honda has confirmed plans to introduce the 2014 Odyssey in Big Apple.

Designed to strengthen the minivan's position as the "segment's most coveted family-friendly vehicle," the facelifted model promises to offer some "innovative new features."

Honda declined to elaborate, but rumors have suggested the model could have a standard six-speed automatic transmission and a new 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces 278 bhp (207 kW) and 252 lb-ft (341 Nm) of torque. The Odyssey could also be offered with a variety of new safety features including adaptive cruise control and a lane departure warning system.

The New York Auto kicks off on March 27th, so stay tuned for full details.
