2023 Dodge Hornet at Lone Star Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram

The 2023 Dodge Hornet is presenting drivers with a whole new take on the classic Dodge design! New for the 2023 model year, the Hornet is introducing tons of new features for drivers to enjoy, both inside and out. The Hornet is Dodge's first compact-utility vehicle, also known as a CUV. This means that it's a smaller and sportier version of the Durango SUV, while still being larger than a Dodge Charger sedan. Not only is it a new silhouette for the brand, but the Hornet is also Dodge's first available PHEV! There are three models within the lineup, which are the GT, GT Plus, and R/T. The R/T is powered by a gas engine alongside a rechargeable battery, helping you save on gas, and reduce your carbon emissions. Read on to learn more about the features of the 2023 Dodge Hornet!



Depending on your driving mode of choice, the Dual-Stage Valve Suspension stiffens to minimize body roll, maximizing cornering control in Sport Mode or softening for a more comfortable ride in Normal mode.


The Macpherson Fully-Independent Suspension is the sum of its parts. Its steering linkage works overtime to provide a wide range of steering angles-perfect for performance driving. The shock absorbers and lower control arms boast strength and stability, making for one smooth ride.



The Hornet comes equipped with LED headlamps, and Daytime Running Lamps to help keep the path lit no matter the weather or time of day.


Blazing LED taillamps give other drivers a clear glimpse of your tail end as you blow past them. The distinct Dodge Racetrack taillamps incorporates the first ever illuminated Rhombi on the first ever electrified Dodge Brand vehicle.



Our take on luxury is an all-black interior with painted and crafted features. Top quality metals and materials accent our dashboard, tunnel bezels and upper door panels.


Warm to the touch and thoughtfully crafted, our available heated steering wheel adds a measure of versatility and comfort. For the ultimate feel, the leather-wrapped steering wheel comes standard on the R/T Plus and is available as part of the Tech Pack.
