2023 Dodge Hornet at Acton Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram

Are you interested in getting behind the wheel of a powerful, sporty, and efficient vehicle? Often times, we expect a performance vehicle to include engines that are powerful but not necessarily fuel-efficient. However, all that is about to change, thanks to Dodge! The Dodge brand has always been known for its performance vehicles, such as the iconic Charger and Challenger. For the 2023 model year, there's a new Dodge joining the lineup. The 2023 Dodge Hornet is an all-new compact-utility vehicle, or CUV, that's adding two new fuel-efficient powertrain options to the mix. The Dodge Hornet has two stylish trim levels, and offers Dodge's first ever plug-in hybrid powertrain. Read on to learn more about the 2023 Dodge Hornet!



Combining the benefits of internal combustion with the immediate power of electrification, the Dodge Hornet is the most powerful Compact Utility Vehicle in its segment. With its Plug-in Hybrid architecture, the Hornet R/T combines the power of its 1.3L Turbo engine, with its electric motor and the Segment-Exclusive PowerShot to unlock an extra 25 electric horsepower-delivering an estimated 285 combined horsepower and 383 pound-feet of total torque-and shaving 1 second off its own 0-60 mph launch time.


The 2023 Hornet GT hits the streets for the first time with a crown already on its head. Enable Sport Mode right on the steering wheel button and uncover why the Hornet earned Best-in-Class power to weight ratio.



The 2023 Dodge Hornet combines its utility with aggressive looks, merging iconic American muscle with new tech.


From 20-inch rims included with the available Track Pack, to dual exhaust tips and Dodge-branded Brembo brake calipers on the Hornet R/T, to your choice of seven bold and distinct colors, the Hornet brings all aspects of muscle to a whole new breed of vehicles.



The driver-centric interior gives you all the tools needed to maximize your experience on the road. Settle into the available race-inspired Alcantara® seats, grab the available steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters and watch your speed increase on the 12.3-inch Digital Cluster Display.


To take it further, access the iconic Dodge Performance Pages from the 10.25-inch touchscreen to keep track of anything from G-force to temperature gauges.



When it comes to tech, there's plenty to uncover in the Dodge Hornet. Available features like Semi-Automatic Parking, a 360° Surround View Camera, a Power Liftgate, a Best-in-Class available 13-Speaker+Subwoofer Harman Kardon® Sound System and plenty more, all combine to deliver the ultimate experience on the road.


The Hornet comes loaded with standard safety and security features across all trim levels, including Automatic Emergency BRaking, Lane Support Warning when straying from your lane, and Automatic Counter Steering.

What are the Dodge Hornet's 2023 Powertrain Options?

The Dodge Hornet is introducing a new selection of powertrain options for the 2023 model year. Specifically, there's one new engine, and one new plug-in hybrid powertrain that uses both an engine and a rechargeable battery! First off, there's the GT trim. This model is introducing the new engine, a 2.0-liter inline-4 called the Hurricane. This engine pairs with a 9-speed automatic transmission, and kicks out 265 horsepower, and 295 lb-ft of torque while also operating more efficiently than your average gas-powered engine. Next, there's the R/T trim, which combines the power of a 1.3-liter four-cylinder with two electric motors. The motors get their energy from a rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack. The R/T's output is rated at 285 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque, and it comes with standard all-wheel drive, and a six-speed automatic transmission.

What are the Performance Features of the Dodge Hornet?

The Dodge Hornet has some new powertrain options in store, but it also has many features that you might recognize from other Dodge vehicles! It follows in the footsteps of the Charger, Challenger, and Durango with a selection of performance features that enhance your experience on the road. For example, you can find features such as a flat-bottomed steering wheel, paddle shifters, and Brembo performance brakes. The GT trim offers a Sport drive mode with stiffer suspension, while the R/T has a new feature called the PowerShot button. With PowerShot, you can access an additional 25 horsepower at the press of a button, and accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 6.1 seconds. To learn more about your Dodge's performance features, check out the Performance Pages on the infotainment touchscreen.

What are the Design Features of the 2023 Dodge Hornet?

As we described above, the 2023 Dodge Hornet has many features in common with other Dodge vehicles. It also incorporates some signature Dodge elements into its design! For example, you'll notice Dodge's signature Rhombii emblem on the front grille, and there are seven bold color options for the exterior. However, the Hornet is also unique in that it's the first-ever compact-utility vehicle in the Dodge lineup, offering drivers a new silhouette to enjoy. Other features you can find on the Dodge Hornet include dual exhaust tips, a mail slot grille opening, and 20-inch wheels. There's a standard 10.1-inch infotainment touchscreen inside, and you can also find available safety features like blind-spot monitoring, lane support warning, and more. Other available features include red seatbelts, leather-trimmed seats, and Alcantara suede accents.
