The Dodge Hornet, which was first launched as an idea over a decade in the past, is now an precise car. Regardless of sharing the identify of the idea, the manufacturing model is visibly completely different – and shares a factor or two with its Stellantis cousin, the Alfa Romeo Tonale.
At launch, the 2023 Dodge Hornet was touted to go below $30,000. This gave the impression of an excellent deal to patrons, attractive 14,000 preorders inside days. Now that the Hornet configurator is up, we found that the bottom GT trim begins at $29,995 however that is with out the obligatory vacation spot cost. The GT Plus begins at $34,995.
We spent our inexistent cash to examine how a lot the costliest 2023 Dodge Hornet can be. Beginning off with the GT Plus trim, the primary selection can be the colours. Going for the 8 Ball (black) and Q Ball (white) exterior colours will not cost a dime, however selecting the Blue Steele launch coloration and particular Acapulco Gold requested for a further $595. We went for the previous.
Subsequent, the wheels. A set of 17-inch silver aluminum wheels comes commonplace, although you possibly can improve to greater units – each included in respective packages. We went for the 20-inch J Abyss aluminum wheels that include the $2,995 Monitor Pack. Alcantara seats, red-painted brake calipers, vibrant pedals, dual-mode suspension, aluminum door sills, and a sporty leather-based steering wheel are all included within the Monitor Pack.
To additional decorate our fictional Hornet, we added the $1,995 GT Blacktop Bundle (darkish “GT” and “Hornet” badges, plus gloss-black painted daylight opening moldings and mirror caps) and the $2,245 Tech Plus Pack that provides a lot of driving nannies into the gear record.
Of word, the plug-in hybrid Hornet R/T is not on the configurator as of this writing, so the only choice is the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that makes 265 horsepower (198 kilowatts) and 295 pound-feet (400 Newton-meters) of torque. That is mated to a nine-speed automated transmission, sending energy to all 4 wheels.
With $7,830 price of whole choices plus the $1,595 vacation spot cost, the costliest 2023 Dodge Hornet construct prices $44,420.
