2023 Dodge Hornet Ft Lauderdale FL

2023 Dodge Hornet at Arrigo Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram Margate

The Dodge brand is serving up something totally new for the 2023 model year! After a decades-long legacy of high-powered vehicles with robust gas-powered engines under the hood, Dodge has chosen to try something different. Enter the 2023 Dodge Hornet! This new CUV has a new silhouette, and two new engine options, both of which are focused on fuel-efficiency. The 2023 Dodge Hornet lineup includes two trim levels, the R/T and the GT. The R/T is a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle, or PHEV, while the GT has an engine designed to save energy. If you’re interested in learning more about the newest release from Dodge, keep reading down below!



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 Engine Options Does the Dodge Hornet Offer?

As we mentioned above, the Dodge Hornet is introducing not one but two all-new engine options for drivers to experience! Whether you choose the R/T or the GT, you’ll be treated to one of these innovative powertrains. Under the hood of the GT, you’ll find a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 Hurricane engine. The Hurricane is designed to be more fuel-efficient than your typical gas-powered engine, while still delivering plenty of oomph! This engine is rated at 265 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. For the R/T, you’ll find a 1.3-liter four-cylinder engine paired with an electric motor. That’s right, the R/T trim of the Dodge Hornet is a plug-in hybrid! The motor is powered by a 15.5 kWh battery pack, and can provide you with up to 30 miles of all-electric range.

What Other Features does the 2023 Hornet Have?

The Dodge Hornet delivers a sleek yet sporty design, with features you might recognize from other vehicles in the Dodge family, paired with some new elements that feel unique to this model. The Hornet is a CUV, which stands for compact-utility vehicle. It’s smaller than a true SUV like the Dodge Durango, but still more robust-looking than a sedan like the Dodge Charger. The Hornet has an athletic stance, emphasized by its slim horizontal mail-slot opening on the front. This opening is highlighted by the Dodge Rhombii badge. Inside, the two trim levels both feature an elegant black upholstery, complete with a pop of red accent stitching. Other features of the Dodge Hornet include available red seatbelts, 20-inch wheels, or Alcantara suede upholstery. Plus, there’s also a 10.25 digital cluster display situated on the dashboard.

What are the Performance Features of the Dodge Hornet?

The Dodge Hornet has so much to offer when it comes to performance! As we mentioned above, the R/T trim is powered by both a gas engine, and an electric motor. It also has a new trick up its sleeve, known as the PowerShot button. With the simple press of this button, the R/T will instantly deliver a jolt of energy measuring 25 horsepower! With the help of the PowerShot, you can accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in approximately 6.1 seconds. Speaking of the hybrid powertrain of the R/T, you’ll get to select one of three drive modes depending on how you want to utilize your energy. You can choose to run only on electric power for up to 30 miles, prioritize the gas tank first, or use both simultaneously! In terms of classic Dodge performance features, the Hornet also features Brembo performance brakes, a flat-bottomed steering wheel, paddle shifters, and more!
