2023 Dodge Hornet Full Pricing Is Out, and It Can Go Over $53,000
Dodge has announced pricing for the 2023 Hornet, a new subcompact crossover that starts at $31,590.
A fully loaded Hornet R/T plug-in hybrid costs over $53,000.
It's based on the Alfa Romeo Tonale and will go on sale in the U.S. this spring.
UPDATE 2/21/23: Dodge has clarified that the Hornet makes more horsepower than the original estimates claimed. The turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four in the GT makes 268 horsepower, not 265 hp, and the plug-in-hybrid system in the R/T produces 288 hp, not 285 hp. We have updated this story accordingly.
$53,000 sounds like a lot for a Dodge subcompact SUV, but what if that SUV is based on an Alfa Romeo and offers a plug-in-hybrid powertrain? Dodge is hoping that the new 2023 Hornet, which is closely related to the Alfa Romeo Tonale, will be enticing enough to live up to its ambitious pricing—at least in fully loaded form—when it goes on sale this spring. There's also a more reasonably priced base model that starts under $32,000 and is powered by a turbocharged inline-four.
That base model is the 268-hp Hornet GT, which starts at $31,590 and comes standard with a 10.3-inch touchscreen, cloth seats, 17-inch wheels, rain-sensing wipers, and more. The $4900 GT Plus upgrade adds leather seats that are heated and cooled up front, a sunroof, a power liftgate, navigation, and more. There are also packages including the $2995 Track Pack with larger wheels and tires, adaptive dampers, and upgraded interior trim; the $1995 Blacktop package with dark trim; and the $2245 Tech Pack with driver-assistance features.
The Hornet R/T is the one with the 288-hp plug-in-hybrid drivetrain that claims to be quicker than the GT and offers an estimated 30 miles of electric driving. It starts at $41,590—a mere $3000 less than its Alfa Romeo sibling, which only comes as a PHEV. The R/T Plus adds equipment and starts at $46,590 and is available with the same options and packages as the GT, which explains how you can get above $53,000 if you add all the extras.
Dodge says that orders are now open for the Hornet GT and that those models will start arriving at dealerships in early spring. The Hornet R/T hybrid will follow a few months after, and ordering information will be available later on.
