All-new 2023 Dodge Hornet GT

If the release of the 2023 Dodge Hornet were to be compared with the premier of a Hollywood movie, its debut may be referred to as “much anticipated,” “exciting,” and even “groundbreaking.” The Dodge Hornet for 2023 is the manufacturer’s re-entry into the compact crossover segment, one that is filled with vehicles that have been described as “peppy” and “spunky.” The 2923 Hornet is much more than that.

If you are in search of a smaller SUV with power, versatility, and a price that won’t stun the budget, you may want to take a closer look at the 2023 Dodge Hornet. A responsive, robust engine and a Dodge that is loaded with the latest technology are just two great reasons to consider this option when in search of a compact SUV.

Surprising Power

Spunky? Peppy? The turbocharged, 4-cylinder, inline engine is efficient while generating a surprisingly robust 265 horsepower in its GT edition. The plugin R/T version can generate up to 285 horsepower. This produces 295 lb-ft of torque. This is more than ample to deliver sufficient power for the compact SUV, taking it from zero to 60 mph in about 6.5 seconds. It comes standard with a nine-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. For work or weekends, the 2023 Dodge Hornet has plenty of energy.

The Higher Tech Dodge

The 2023 Dodge Hornet embraces useful technology that will keep you safer, informed, and connected. Standard tech features include the Uconnect 5 system, digital gauges, and automatic emergency braking. Emergency braking includes pedestrian and cyclist response. The Android-based Uconnect 5 system has dual phone support, wireless Android Auto, and Apple Car Play capability, Amazon Alexa, and a range of vehicle configurations. The multifunction steering wheel allows control of the audio system, cruise control, and many safety systems.

A Cockpit Feel

The center console of the Hornet is slanted toward the driver, providing an aircraft cockpit environment. The driver’s digital display is larger than the central touchscreen. The Dodge Hornet seats five and has a versatile seating configuration for flexible stowing. Just a few of the many comfort options include heated seating and a heated steering wheel.

Attractive Versatility

The 2023 Dodge Hornet is far more sporty and attractive than its previous namesakes from Chrysler and AMC. It does, however, include some small design elements that pay homage to previous Chryslers. It is sporty and slots in nicely under the legendary Durango. Its chiseled appearance provides images of a well-trained middleweight. You will look and feel good behind the wheel, and it will enhance your driveway and neighborhood.

A Reachable Price

It is impossible to discuss the 2023 Dodge Hornet without mentioning its reachable base price. Nicely equipped, the Hornet starts at less than $30,000. The savings continue with its efficient 4-cylinder engine and available plug-in and upcoming PHEV models.
