What's new on the 2024 Dodge Hornet?
The 2024 Dodge Hornet is a technological powerhouse, integrating state-of-the-art driver assistance systems with a user-friendly infotainment setup. It comes equipped with a 12.3-inch digital cockpit cluster and a 10.25-inch Uconnect 5 system, together offering a significant 22.5 inches of display area. These systems are designed for customization and include wireless connectivity and Amazon Alexa integration, reflecting the modern, connected driving experience.
Safety and convenience are paramount in the Hornet, which features a comprehensive suite of ADAS features like Automatic Emergency Braking and Lane Support System as standard. The optional Tech Pack adds Level 2 autonomous driving features, enhancing both safety and convenience. With these advanced technologies, the Dodge Hornet ensures an exhilarating driving experience while also maintaining high standards of safety, comfort, and connectivity.
The new 2024 Hornet captivates with an exterior that redefines muscular aesthetics in the CUV category. The front end is marked by an assertive “mail slot”-style grille and a hood featuring integrated heat extractors, alluding to its performance capabilities. The rear is highlighted by a signature vehicle-width taillamp, centered around an illuminated Dodge Rhombi logo, adding to its distinctive look. The R/T model enhances this bold styling with unique Abyss painted lower cladding and a rear valance that incorporates dual exhaust ports.
The Hornet's exterior is not just about looks; it's about making a statement. The Blacktop Package offers a striking, all-black theme, while the Track Pack brings a more performance-focused appearance with 20-inch wheels and Alcantara sport seats. These exterior design elements ensure the Hornet stands out not only for its impressive performance capabilities but also for its distinctive, muscular design.
Inside the 2024 Dodge Hornet, the focus is on a blend of comfort, sportiness, and advanced technology. The driver-centric interior features an arrangement where controls and displays are strategically oriented towards the driver. The dashboard is enhanced with a wrapped and stitched mid-bolster that extends across, adding a sense of luxury and breadth. The sporty ambiance is further amplified by consistent red stitching across the black interior, adorning the mid-bolster, seats, and armrest.
The Hornet's interior options cater to a range of preferences. The Plus models bring in luxurious elements like leather seating and ventilated front seats, while the Track Pack introduces performance-oriented Alcantara seats with eye-catching “red crust” accents. The combination of standard and optional interior features in the Hornet creates an inviting and stimulating environment, perfectly in tune with the vehicle's dynamic performance nature.
Engine and Powertrain
The new Hornet is equipped with two powerful engine options that distinguish it in the CUV segment. The R/T model combines a hybrid system with a 1.3-litre turbocharged engine and a 90-kW electric motor, resulting in a combined output of 288 horsepower and 383 lb.-ft. of torque. This model offers an impressive electric range of 53 kilometres, supported by a 15.5-kWh battery. The PowerShot feature in the R/T model enhances its dynamic capabilities, providing an additional 30 horsepower boost. As a result, the new plug-in hybrid Dodge Hornet achieves a 0-100 km/h acceleration in just 5.6 seconds, making it significantly faster than its direct competitors. Despite its performance, the Hornet R/T still achieves an impressive fuel economy rating of just 3.1 Le/100 km, striking the perfect balance between efficiency and performance.
In contrast, the Hornet GT, powered by the Hurricane4 engine—a 2.0-litre turbocharged inline-four—claims the title of the segment's most potent gas engine, offering 268 horsepower and 295 lb.-ft. of torque. Standard all-wheel drive in both models ensures top-notch handling and stability. These advanced powertrain choices, along with a variety of driving modes, underline Dodge's commitment to combining high performance with efficient power management.
The 2024 Dodge Hornet enriches its lineup with the introduction of the R/T trim, following last year's announcement. The Hornet R/T, a plug-in hybrid in the compact SUV category, uniquely combines efficiency with remarkable performance. This model is perfectly tailored for consumers who prioritize a performance-centric SUV without sacrificing practicality and fuel economy. As the segment's most powerful sport utility vehicle, the Hornet R/T commands attention with its 288 horsepower and 383 lb.-ft. of torque. Its impressive 53-kilometre all-electric range is powered by a 15.5-kWh lithium-ion battery, achieving a highly efficient 3.1 le/100 km. A key highlight is the Hornet R/T's unique PowerShot feature, providing a 30-horsepower surge, enabling the SUV to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.6 seconds. The 2024 Hornet R/T also qualifies for the Canadian iZEV Zero-Emission Rebates program, offering incentives up to $5,000, and in British Columbia, potential savings of up to $2,000 on this new plug-in hybrid SUV.
