Dodge has clarified that the new 2023 Hornet subcompact SUV, closely related to the Alfa Romeo Tonale, will have higher horsepower than original estimates.
The base model is the 268-hp Hornet GT, priced at $31,590, and comes with a 10.3-inch touchscreen and cloth seats.
The $4900 GT Plus upgrade adds leather seats, a sunroof, a power liftgate, and navigation, among other features.
Packages are available, including the $2995 Track Pack, $1995 Blacktop package, and $2245 Tech Pack.
The Hornet R/T, which claims to be quicker than the GT and offers an estimated 30 miles of electric driving, is powered by a 288-hp plug-in-hybrid drivetrain and starts at $41,590.
The R/T Plus adds equipment and starts at $46,590 and is available with the same options and packages as the GT.
Orders are open for the Hornet GT, which will start arriving at dealerships in early spring.
The Hornet R/T hybrid will follow a few months after, and ordering information will be available later on.
The pricing for the fully loaded Hornet with all the extras could exceed $53,000.
The new Dodge Hornet aims to compete in the subcompact SUV market with its sleek design, higher horsepower, and plug-in-hybrid powertrain option.
