The Hornet concept was initially unveiled by Dodge in 2006. Dodge had planned to release a production version of the Hornet in 2010, but because to the financial crisis in 2009, the Hornet was shelved.Dodge chose to go back to the design board for the 2023 Hornet due to the passage of time. While Dodge has yet to release any official photographs or video of the 2023 Hornet, spy shots from an Alfa Romeo plant in Italy revealed a Hornet with a front end and interior that resembled the Tonale’s design. Reshaped headlamps, a Dodge emblem on the steering wheel, and additional vents are among the differences between the two variants.

The inside of the 2023 Hornet has yet to be photographed by Avoid. If the upcoming SUV follows the Tonale’s fundamental design, it will have a lively, premium appearance. The Hornet will have a superior look thanks to its layered dashboard, narrow column of controls for the HVAC framework, and infotainment display that is linked to the dashboard. The Hornet might have massive shift paddles, an identifiable drive mode selector, and a thick directing wheel to save energy.There’s no information on what kind of technology the 2023 Dodge Hornet will come with. There’s a good chance the Hornet will be accompanied with similar highlights as the Tonale. The Hornet is expected to have a 10.3-inch touchscreen, a 12.3-inch computerized instrument cluster, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, Amazon Alexa compatibility, Google Assistant availability, and the Uconnect 5 infotainment system.

2023 Dodge Hornet Specs

The 2023 Dodge Hornet could offer the same two powertrain options as the 2023 Alfa Romeo Tonale, according to Car & Driver. A turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four-cylinder engine paired to a nine-speed automated transmission is the first powertrain option. It produces 256 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque.A plug-in hybrid is the second powertrain choice (PHEV). It has a 180-horsepower turbocharged 1.3-liter inline four-cylinder at the front wheels and a 121-horsepower electric motor at the rear wheels for a total system output of 273 hp. The Tonale PHEV has an estimated 30 miles of electric-only driving range thanks to its plug-in hybrid technology and six-speed automatic transmission.All Tonale models come standard with all-wheel drive, but it’s unclear whether this will be the case with the Hornet. In addition, the Hornet could come with a less powerful base engine. This would make the Hornet, which is a more mainstream vehicle, more inexpensive than the Tonale, which is more luxury-oriented.
