If it's not on our future vehicles list, we haven't received official word from the manufacturer that a re-design is in the works... at all. If you check the regular (non-future) Element discussions, there are people who seem to know what Honda's general "cycle" is for re-designs.

Well they just gave it a refresh and the SC so i think they'll be around for 2 years before they update the whole model. The new refresh looks great and the addition of the SC is cool too. I have an element and i like the refresh version. and honda usually has a refresh out for 2 years before an all new model, so i think 2009.

mike is right, the refresh is very nice and should be around for at least a year before changing. (since the refresh actually occured the year before, and the trim levels were just different, it may be safe to assume that the 09 accord will be the one to watch for, assuming that honda keeps it going and doesn't use that new crossover, which is quite nice too.)
i guess this means we can look forward to a cool special edition version like we have for other honda vehicles.

Does anyone know when the 2008 models will be available for purchase? I haven't bought one since 1980, and haven't been paying attention to their release dates. My wife saw one and loves it, so.... now I have to buy one. She wants a Rootbeer SC. Since it is May already, should I wait for the 2008's?

I am living in Canada (Montreal), and 3 weeks ago I was almost ready to order my new 2007 Element, and when the dealer was looking for availability of my model/color, he found that almost nothing is available at the moment. The color that I want, will be only available in the next shipment to Canada for the 2008 models. And that is next July!! No more info. No date, no specifications.
So I decided to wait for the 2008 model and expect more options (like navigation system, external thermometer, heated side mirror, etc...).
I don't have any proof. But you can verify if you want. The dealer is Hamel Honda (www.hamelhonda.com). Give them a call! Ask for availability for a blue 2007 element 4wd....
I can wait to have the new specs! I also hope no price increase....

when does information about new models typically come out? i've never paid any attention (until now b/c i'm in the market).
it sounds like no one knows much about the 2008. i'm praying for a more fuel efficient engine - esp in light of the recent gas prices.
