Dodge Hornet 2023. Concern Stellantis not so long ago announced plans to electrify all cars of every brand that is a part of the auto giant.

At the moment, we know that Dodge will soon release the Hornet crossover, which is rumored to be based on the Alfa Romeo Tonale.

And it will be offered as a hybrid. This was reported by Mopar Insiders, which also added that the novelty will be a compact crossover.

Where did the name Hornet come from? Dodge has used the name before. It appeared on a 2006 show car before Chrysler merged with Fiat.

Now we know that the new car will be based on the Tonale concept that Alfa Romeo showed back in 2019.

Mopar Insiders suggests that the hybrid will be based on a two-liter turbocharged gasoline engine.

Initially, there were already rumors that the hybrid will be borrowed from the Durango SUV with the expectation that the new Jeep Grand Cherokee will receive the same setup later on.

But the information was not confirmed. Style of the new Hornet will definitely differ from the concept shown earlier.

It is reported that the new model will be presented as a small crossover. Perhaps it will have non-hybrid versions as well.

All-wheel drive will probably be available as well. It is assumed that the Hornet will be produced together with Tonale in Italy.

Production of the model will start in mid-2022, and it will arrive in dealerships in 2023.

Judging by the fact that it will be a compact SUV, it is unlikely it will appear on the U.S. market, where audiences prefer large SUVs. The car is likely to be sold only in Europe.

But things can still change. Representatives of Dodge and Stellantis don’t give any comments about it yet. But if the rumors are confirmed, two twin brothers — Hornet and Tonale — will appear on sale soon.

The data about hybrid version of Dodge Hornet 2023 has appeared

The details about the engine range of the 2023 Dodge Hornet have become known. According to rumors, the novelty, which will get a 2.0-liter plug-in hybrid powertrain, will be built on the Alfa Romeo Tonale platform.

If you’ve been into cars for a while, you may vaguely remember the square Dodge Hornet concept from the 2006 Geneva Motor Show (pictured).

The American brand is allegedly reviving the name for the upcoming compact crossover, which will be built on the same platform as the upcoming Alfa Romeo Tonale crossover.

According to Mopar Insiders, the novelty will be offered with a plug-in hybrid engine in particular.

According to sources close to the automaker, the Hornet will be Dodge’s first plug-in hybrid vehicle.

It will reportedly use a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine and an optional electric motor. The power output of this setup is not yet known.

The Italian Tonale crossover will also be available with PHEVs (plug-in hybrid motor designation).

Alfa Romeo actually pushed back the launch of the Tonale because company executives were unhappy with the performance of the plug-in powertrain.

The company pushed back the model’s debut in order to refine the hybrid motor.

The small, two-row crossover will go on sale in the fall of 2022. Concern Stellantis, which includes Alfa Romeo and Dodge, will set up production of it in Naples, Italy.

The Dodge Hornet is expected to debut in early 2022, maybe even late 2021.

The Hornet and Tonale may also be available with a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine and a mild hybrid. This unit will produce about 200 hp of power.

The Hornet will take the place formerly occupied by the Dodge Journey in the brand’s lineup. The only crossover in the brand’s current lineup is the Durango.

The earlier Hornet concept was supposed to get a production version.

The timing was bad, however, because work was in progress as Diamler gave up ownership of Chrysler, and the world was on the verge of financial collapse at the time.
