With the 2023 Hornet, Dodge is prepared to reenter the compact crossover market.
The basic engine is an all-wheel drive, turbocharged four-cylinder with 265 horsepower, and a nine-speed automated transmission.
This tiny SUV will face competition from vehicles like the Volkswagen Taos, Mazda CX-30, and the Kia Seltos.
The 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine in Hornet GT variants produces 265 horsepower and is mated to a nine-speed automated transmission.
Dodge claims that the Hornet's all-wheel drive system, which is an optional feature, can propel the vehicle from zero to 60 mph in 6.5 seconds.
A long shift lever for the automatic gearbox is located in the centre console, and the main controls and infotainment system are canted slightly toward the driver.
