The 2023 Dodge Hornet will be a revival of an old nameplate and a new entry into the compact crossover segment from the Detroit-based brand.

Built as one of the first models from Dodge available with a hybrid powertrain option, the Hornet will share underpinnings with the Alfa Romeo Tonale and Jeep Compass in the form of the FCA Small US Wide (SUSW) 4×4 platform.

Expected only in hybrid form, the 2023 Dodge Hornet will enter a hotly-contested segment with rivals like the Toyota RAV4, Honda CR-V, Mazda CX-5, Hyundai Tucson, and more as Dodge looks to expand its brand beyond merely large V6 and V8-powered muscle machines and enter a new era of electrified mobility.

The 2023 Dodge Hornet will be a new entrant in the Dodge lineup and will sit below the mid-size Durango as a small SUV going up against rivals such as the Kia Seltos, the Mazda CX-30, and the Volkswagen Taos.

Without having been fully revealed, our knowledge of the Dodge Hornet’s exterior design is severely limited. However, a few leaked images have given us some insight, not least of all into the fact that the Hornet will be a badge-engineered version of the Alfa Tonale with very similar proportions, lines, and design elements.

We know that key elements will be bespoke to the Dodge, like a familiar front grille blending into narrow LED headlights, and a bold lower grille. We also know there will be hood vents, black cladding around the wheel arches, and relatively square proportions.

The color palette of the 2023 Dodge Hornet remains a mystery, too, but leaked photos showcase a red model that will likely be joined by a broad array of vivid hues including blues, greens, grays, and possibly even purples and oranges.
