2023 Dodge Hornet - A Closer Look
The 2023 Dodge Hornet is a revamp of the old concept car first made in 2006. It was originally slated to be released in 2010, but that version unfortunately never made it to production.
This new model is designed for car enthusiasts to allow them to join the Dodge muscle-car family with the compact utility vehicle (CUV) segment.
Engine & Powertrain
The 2023 Dodge Hornet comes with a DOHC DI Turbo 2.0L inline four-cylinder engine paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. It boasts 268 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque, allowing it to go from 0-100 km/h in 6.5 seconds and with a top speed of 225 km/h.
The Hornet has a more sporty weight distribution of 59/41, which improves its handling. It includes a torque vectoring system, allowing the engine's torque to be adjusted dynamically to the ground with precision.
It's most unique feature is the fact that it has two different suspension systems available. The first is the Koni Frequency Selective Damping (FSD) suspension, which uses a passive spring and a bypass valve system. The second is the Marelli Dual Stage Valve (DSV), which is stiffer to allow less body roll and better cornering control in the sport mode. It also brings with it a more comfortable driving feel without sport mode and includes the Track Pak package.
The 2023 Hornet features an all-new design that is both modern and stylish. The front end is sleek and sporty, with a massive grille and LED headlights. The sides are muscular and aggressive, with large wheel arches and optional 18-inch wheels. The rear end is sculpted in a sporty-style, with a dual exhaust system and LED taillights.
The new interior has also been redesigned to be more driver-focused. There are center stack controls with all the air vents and a display screen that is angled towards the driver.
Technology and Infotainment
The Dodge Hornet is offering up all the modern features expected of a 2023 model-year vehicle.
There is a 12.3″ digital cockpit and a 10.25″ display screen that comes standard, along with an Android-based Uconnect 5 system. Let's not forget the wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay which are also available.
Trims and Pricing
The 2023 Hornet comes with two different trim options. The Dodge Hornet GT starts at $40,190 and comes with all-wheel drive, Uconnect 5, and LED lighting all around.
The GT Plus starts at $46,665 and offers standard leather seats, heated front seats, and a Harman Kardon premium sound system.
