For the 2021 model year, there will be two redesigned and two significantly refreshed models hitting the market in addition to the Dodge Caravan, which is finally getting the axe.

Below is a list of the best-selling minivans through December 31, 2020. Many automakers report their sales results quarterly. These rankings have been determined using sales numbers provided by the individual automobile manufacturers. FCA rolls its Chrysler Voyager sales into Pacifica sales (they share most of the same components).

No. 5 - Kia Sedona (13,190 sold)

The Kia Sedona has been completely redesigned for the 2022 model year. The 2020 model is still on U.S. lots and delivers a lot of bang for its buck - just like most of the rest of the Kia lineup. The Sedona comfortably and confidently gets passengers to and fro.

No. 4 - Dodge Grand Caravan (38,767 sold)

The Dodge Grand Caravan has finally reached the end of the road. It's in the process of being replaced by the similarly priced but nicer appointed Chrysler Voyager.

No. 3 - Toyota Sienna (42,885 sold)

Toyota has redesigned the Sienna for 2021, giving it only a hybrid powertrain and offering more polarizing looks. If you'd rather have a straight up gasoline-powered Sienna, you'll want to head to the Toyota lot sooner rather than later to grab a 2020 model before they run out.

No. 2 - Honda Odyssey (83,409 sold)

The Honda Odyssey gets a significant facelift for 2021 with a shuffling of the packages and trim levels that actually lowers the price of the mid-grade model a significant amount. The car can come loaded with some neat tech like CabinWatch, which puts a camera view of the rear seats on the infotainment screen.

No. 1 - Chrysler Pacifica (93,802 sold)

The Chrysler Pacifica is a well-designed family hauler that comes in a traditional gasoline-powered variant as well as a plug-in hybrid model. It has gobs of passenger space and sits a little lower to the ground than the Odyssey and Sienna while still giving good forward visibility. It will be significantly refreshed for 2021.

Honda teases its first EV

The Prologue will go on sale as a 2024 model.

Honda

Honda is nearing the unveiling of its first electric vehicle, the Prologue, and today the automaker gave us our first glimps of the new vehicle. It's just a sketch, but Honda did share some production details and information on its product roadmap.

Honda DealerHonda plans to sell half a million EVs by the end of the decade. Honda

Honda says the Prologue will be an adventure-ready SUV "capable of satisfying everyday driving and weekend getaways with a strong hint of the well-received Honda e in the front fascia." The SUV was developed in Honda's Design Studio in Los Angeles, and was designed with an eye on Honda's global EV models. Honda said it focused on aerodynamics and fine-tuning the body to reducelines and improve range.

The Japanese automaker developed the Prologue alongside GM, but it has other EVs coming to market by 2026. By 2030, Honda says it will release 30 new EVs globally with a production volume of two million units. The co-developed vehicle is the first, but the rest will be built on Honda e:Architecture. In 2027, the automaker will begin building and selling a line of affordable EVs using the architecture developed with General Motors. Honda says it plans to sell half a million EVs in North America by the end of hte decade.

New minivan

Honda announces new Odyssey Sport

Sport is a new trim for the Odyssey minivan.

Honda

The Honda Odyssey may not be the most exciting vehicle in the world, but it's getting a new Sport model that at least makes it look the part. Honda will release the model for the 2023 model year, and the Odyssey line overall will be offered with a new Honda Service Pass, which includes two years of complimentary scheduled maintenance.

The Odyssey Sport slots into the Honda catalog between the EX-L and Touring trims. It comes with gloss-black exterior trim and black 19-inch wheels outside, and black leather with red stitching inside. The cabin comes with red accent lighting on the dash and in the footwells, and the roof pillars and headliner are both black. Under the hood, the Odyssey Sport gets the same 3.5-liter V6 from years past. It makes 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque, and comes paired with a ten=speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive.

All Odyssey models come with Honda Sensing safety equipment, which includes adaptive cruise control and pedestrian detection. The 2023 van hasn't been crash-tested yet, but the 2022 model earned a Top Safety Pick + award, so it's likely the new model will be rated similarly.

Honda Service Pass is a new program for 2023+ Honda vehicles. It covers routine scheduled maintenance for up to two years or 24,000 miles, whichever comes first. Under the program, buyers get free oil changes, tire rotations, and multi-point inspections.
