Dodge officially revealed last week that the all-new Dodge Hornet is set to swarm the nation, in a 90-second commercial highlighting its forward-leaning excellence. The Hornet will surpass all preconceived performance standards by arriving out of the gate as the most powerful and fastest CUV ever created, and the team here at Landmark Dodge of Morrow can’t wait!
When electrification was still a distant notion on the radar, consumers who loved their gas-powered drive were rightfully a bit standoffish. With a release such as this, coming from a brand that has long been known for its exhilarating performance, the Hornet has the power to disrupt the CUV market. By displaying the raw quality of muscle that drew drivers to legendary models such as the Challenger and Charger, the Hornet is the first vehicle off the production line to incorporate electrification as part of its source of excellence.
Efficiently cranking out 288 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque, the Dodge Hornet R/T performance hybrid enthusiastically blasts from 0 to 60 mph in 5.6 seconds and offers an additional 30 miles of all-electric range from its 15.5-kWh lithium-ion battery. Dodge brand CEO Tim Kuniskis claimed last week during an official press conference that Dodge is “thrilled to recognize a new breed of electrified performance capable of changing the game.” With the appearance, performance, and many other characteristics that are most definitely Dodge at its purest, the Hornet offers first-class driving dynamics along with available Direct Connection factory-backed performance upgrades.
The Hornet GT will command the high-performance segment of the EV scene with its Hurricane engine, which is a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline 4-cylinder. The Motor Trend car review team was quick to exclaim that nostalgia is a key element that runs thick within our entire lineup, and we are certain that the Hornet’s adrenalin-rich arrival will be perfectly situated to fill the void between subcompact and compact categories. The R/T Badge is highly esteemed among hardcore Dodge fans, and it clearly defines a focus on accessible yet stylish sportiness.
We are certain that many drivers will love the Power Shot feature, which is exclusive to the Hornet R/T and allows for power in 15-second bursts. Activating Power Shot shaves an entire very valuable second off of the normal 0-60 time for a rapid 6.1-second sprint. Every 2023 Hornet comes equipped with a 12.3-inch reconfigurable digital display, along with a 10.3-inch infotainment touchscreen. Situated nicely with front-row USB ports and a wireless charger, higher-end models also provide the very awesome audible enjoyment of a 14-speaker Harmon Kardon premium audio system.
A great amount of time and effort went into the engineering of this modern marvel, and we are excited to see how well its eco-friendly fervor and driver-focused demeanor are received. Competing directly against models such as the Ford Bronco Sport, Honda CR-V, and Kia Seltos, the Hornet is bound to please, and excellently provide a needed injection of purebred Dodge character into very new, efficient, and cutting-edge bones.
