After being introduced as an all-new car for 2023, the Dodge Hornet is set to be a model carryover for 2024. While we don’t expect to see any major changes, here’s what the 2024 Dodge looks like. Hornet will bring to the table.
The exterior design of the Hornet will remain the same for the 2024 model year. The subcompact SUV will continue to feature the same features as the current model on sale. The current Hornet has a muscular design with a large front spoiler, a tall hood, a thin grille and rectangular headlights. At the rear, the Hornet features a rear spoiler, slim integrated taillights and a chiseled rear spoiler. Inside, the 2024 Hornet is expected to have the same design as the current SUV.
The Hornet has a premium design for its Alfa Romeo roots. The panoramic dash has square air vents, thin physical controls and a display that sits atop the dash. Three-way navigation with many physical controls. The Hornet is slightly larger than most subcompact SUVs, so the car offers plenty of interior space.
As far as performance goes, we don’t expect to see any changes to the Hornet for the 2024 model year. The subcompact SUV is expected to continue to feature a 10.25-inch touchscreen and a 12.3-inch digital instrument panel. The SUV includes Dodge’s Uconnect 5 infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth, Amazon Alexa compatibility, six speakers, a Wi-Fi hotspot and two USB ports in the front. Available features include a Harman Kardon 14-inch audio system, wireless charging, and navigation.
Dodge currently offers the Hornet with two different engines. This model comes with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that develops 268 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque and a nine-speed automatic transmission. The hybrid model inside has a turbocharged 1.3-liter four-cylinder engine, an electric motor and a 15.5 kWh battery.
The PHEV comes with a six-speed automatic transmission. The Hornet PHEV is rated at 285 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. There are all Hornets with wheel drive. We expect these engines to continue to be available for the 2024 model year. In terms of safety, the current Hornet comes standard with forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning, rear cross-traffic alert and sensors car parking. Available features include Lane Centering Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, Surround View Parking Camera, Driver Attention Monitor, Traffic Sign Detection, Front Vehicle Sensor and Speed Braking. The 2024 Dodge Hornet should have the same safety features.
The 2023 Dodge Hornet goes on sale in the summer of 2022, and we expect the 2024 model to arrive this summer. Pricing for the SUV has yet to be announced. Without any major changes, the 2024 Hornet should have a similar price range to the current MSRP. The Hornet ranges from $31,590 to $46,590 plus destination charge.
