After Dodge presented its 2023 performance models earlier this week – we were introduced to the Challenger convertible edition, and the returning Durango SRT Hellcat - it was the turn of the American automaker’s first foray into electrification to step into the spotlight. It was no secret, of course, because we’ve known for some time the Hornet SUV was on the way, but here it is.
The Hornet shares its underpinnings with the Alfa Romeo Tonale and sits on a 103.8-inch wheelbase, identical to that of the Jeep Compass. Another fun fact: It's the first new model Dodge has offered in just over 10 years. And that was the Dart, which didn’t exactly set the automotive world on fire.
Ironically, this new model also borrows a name from the past. The last car to use the Hornet name was produced by AMC; some will also remember the 50s-era Hudson Hornet.
