Dodge Readies Hornet Crossover For Production

Written By, Brad R

The 2023 Dodge Hornet we reported about in earlier posts has come to light with new elements. The Alfa Romeo brand, a part of the group of brands from Stellantis, is going to see one of their vehicles function as the base for the vehicle. The Hornet nameplate, previously found on a 2006 Dodge mid-size SUV concept for a new crossover SUV, was appointed. The Hornet is going to bring a battery-electric ride with a raised MPG that will ensure greater profits for the coming decade. The Alfa Romeo Tonale SUV, the crossover platform being used for this Hornet vehicle.

Perks of the Hornet Revealed

 We have seen the Alfa Romeo Tonale platform successfully carried over to the Dodge Hornet with modifications. A rebadged creation is what we see for this new Dodge crossover that is foreseen to deliver 256 horsepower from a 2.0-Liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. This news shines a light on the all-new Dodge vehicle we learned was first shown off to be made about back in 2020. The production value for a new Dodge crossover would be massive and plans are well underway.

"The electrification movement, the infotainment movement, the autonomous movement -- it's getting more interesting. You look at it as a mature industry but it's actually quite the opposite. It's evolving more than ever. The current suite of EVs out there tend to be a little bit bland and uninspiring -- great performing vehicles but not necessarily heart-pumping in the cultural or aesthetical sense. So trying to find a way to make them desirable and affordable," said Ralph Gilles, Chief Design Officer of Stellantis

More About the Worthwhile 2023 Dodge Hornet 

When taking a closer look into the interior of the crossover, we note the modifications that include a similar shape from the previous look, but we noticed some changes. The highlights are horizontal air vents, an infotainment touchscreen that looks like the Tonale, with a similar button layout. The 2006 Hornet concept is all but lost when comparing them both inside and out. A Dodge brand name can be spotted on the red brake caliper, but the automaker has made sure to blur the lines that make the images of the vehicle a mystery. The dramatic change to the design is two new nostrils cut into the front hood with a look that draws quite a bit of attention.

According to the latest from Dodge, the all-new Hornet is set to see a production run that starts in Italy for the 2023 model year. The Dodge and Alfa Romeo brands are both adding EVs to their line-up and this crossover might be the right contender to raise the bar high with its debut. This crossover hybrid would be an instantaneous magnet for customers looking for a new vehicle. We know Dodge will do all they can to offer more horsepower and strength with its vehicles, as we expect the Hornet to arrive later this year and steal the show.
