Dodge has officially unveiled the Hornet. It is not a muscle car, as you used to be. Instead, the new Hornet is a crossover which is based on the current Alfa Romeo Tonale platform. Also, the Tonale uses the architecture of the Compass/Renegade.
The new Dodge Hornet looks pretty aggressive, and this could be a good selling point in a market flooded by SUVs and crossovers.
Under the hood, the 2023 Dodge Hornet will be available with a 2,0 liter turbo unit matted to a nine-speed automatic transmission. The unit delivers 265 horsepower and 400 Nm peak of torque, which is enought to power the car from not to 60 mph in just 6,5 seconds.
There is also a 1,3 liter turbocharged unit matted with an electric motor to deliver a plug-in hybrid arrangement. IN this form, the powertrain delivers 285 horsepower, while the 15.5 kWH battery pack can offer a purely electric range of 35 miles.
Inside the cabin, the crossover comes with a 22.6 inches screen. Dodge has already started taking orders, and the price will be beyond 30,000 USD.
