Just like the Italian Alpha Romeo manufacturer, Dodge is also part of the Stellantis group. So, the 2023 Hornet, just like the Alpha Romeo Tonale, is built on the same structure. Both SUVs are assembled in Naples, Italy.

The 2023 Dodge Hornet has its own unique emblem, and comes with a dashboard that is completely focused on the driver. This new sporty compact Dodge SUV’s 12.3- inch central display screen and the Uconnect5 infotainment system screen are both directed towards the driver.

A muscular style

The all-new 2023 Hornet possesses all of the visual features common to Dodge muscle cars. For example, two heat extractors sculpt the hood, and the impressive radiator grille, integrated into the shield, is framed by LED headlights.

Just as spectacular, the rear view of the 2023 Hornet boasts a stunning taillight that runs across the full width of the body.
