Dodge Hornet Powertrain Options

As we mentioned above, there are two trim levels for the 2023 Dodge Hornet. Each of these trim levels, the R/T and the GT, features a new and unique powertrain option. Under the hood of the R/T, you'll find an innovative new hybrid electric powertrain option. This PHEV model combines the power of a gas engine alongside a battery pack to deliver all the muscle you expect from a Dodge! This powertrain consists of a 15.5-kWh lithium-ion battery, which delivers up to 30 miles of all-electric range when fully charged. The R/T kicks out up to 285 horsepower, and 383 lb-ft of torque. The GT also features a new engine option, which is the mighty Hurricane4! This engine is a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-4, and is specially engineered for optimum fuel efficiency without compromising on performance. With the help of the Hurricane4, the GT kicks out up to 265 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. Both of these engines demonstrate Dodge's commitment to improving the fuel efficiency of all their vehicles to come!

What are the Features of the 2023 Dodge Hornet?

The Hornet is a totally new take on the classic Dodge design, starting with its silhouette. The Hornet is a compact utility vehicle, the first we've seen in the Dodge lineup. This means it's larger than the Charger, but still more compact than the Durango SUV. This makes it a great choice for drivers navigating their daily commutes, looking for a stylish and fuel-efficient option. On the front end, the Hornet features a slim "mail slot" opening, with the Dodge Rhombii logo right above it. There are also seven different color options to choose from, so you can let your personal style shine! Inside, both the R/T and GT feature standard black upholstery with red accent stitching, while red leather or alcantara suede interiors are also available. You can also opt for one of two appearance packages, like the Track Pack, which includes 20-inch wheels, and aluminum interior accents. There's also the Blacktop package, with black accents inside and out!

What Performance Features does the Dodge Hornet Offer?

The Dodge Hornet might have some new features we haven't seen before on a Dodge, but it also has some great performance features that you're sure to recognize! For example, you can find features that offer bold looks as well as performance, including a flat-bottomed steering wheel, paddle shifters, dual exhaust, and Brembo brakes with red calipers. Both the GT and R/T also come with standard Koni damping shocks. In addition to these features, you'll also see some new features that really enhance the Hornet's power and performance. For example, the R/T features the new PowerShot button, for an immediate boost of horsepower. With the help of the PowerShot, you can accelerate from 0-60 miles per hour in just 6.1 seconds! The R/T's hybrid powertrain also gives you the option to choose between three drive modes, Hybrid, Electric, and eSave. This puts you in full control of whether you want to use gas power, electric power, or both at once! Meanwhile, the G/T features Sport Mode, which provides you with stiffer suspension.
