How Dodge Transformed the Hornet Nameplate

Written By, Brad R

Not many brands are aiming to revive the past quite like the Dodge brand. Over the years we have seen the return of the Dodge Daytona muscle car arrive in a special edition and various trims and packages that invoke a celebration of their legacy. From the various Dodge nameplates that have come and gone, one is returning soon for the muscle car brand. Dodge is bringing back some flavor and some flare after sourcing for inspiration for the 2023 Dodge line-up. A bit of racing influence has come into play as well for the designs that have been leaked and Stellantis, the parent company of Dodge, is pushing to offer EV technology for this latest reprise of the Hornet. The brand will join in on some of the fun as rumors say the vehicle will be built on the ICE platform. The 2023 Dodge Hornet is expected to replace the Durango in the coming years as a compact crossover that packs some serious speed.

More Revealed About the 2023 Dodge Hornet SUV

The Hornet is expected to also be battery-electric mobility with a raised MPG that will ensure greater sales for the coming decade. The Dodge Hornet is gaining a lot of its design perks from the Tonale. While the headlights and headlamps will differ, the cabin and interior are rumored to have borrowed some cues from the Dodge product. The next intel we've discovered is the 12.5-inch digital cluster that will be a major highlight. Drivers and passengers alike will enjoy the 10.25-inch color touchscreen as the main focus of the infotainment system. There will be added features like standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities and wireless phone mirroring and charging with some Level 2 semi-autonomous driving aids that will include lane-centering and traffic jam assist to prevent crashes at reduced speeds.

The engine is still not confirmed, but we might see what powers fellow Stellantis brand Jeep and its Jeep Compass compact SUV. If this is the case, the Hornet will have a 2.0-Liter inline-four engine and perhaps a hybrid option. The length of the vehicle is about 178.4-inches including a wheelbase of 103.8 inches. The tech taken from the Alfa Romero brand includes tight handling, a 13:6:1 steering ratio, Brembo brakes for ultimate stopping ability and torque vectoring with optional adaptive dampers on high-series variants. The 2023 Dodge Hornet is still months from seeing a true reveal, but we'll learn more as summer goes about what to expect and when this all-new Dodge Hornet entry will fly and leave us all stung.
