Dodge is poised to get back into the small crossover game with the 2023 Hornet, which may be available with a plug-in-hybrid powertrain. Rather than reskinning a Jeep Compass like it did with the unloved Caliber, this time around Dodge has instead settled on sharing a platform with the Alfa Romeo Tonale. If the Hornet follows the Tonale's formula closely, we will see a 256-hp turbocharged four-cylinder with all-wheel drive as the standard setup with a plug-in hybrid option available with around 30 miles of electric driving range. We'll know more about the 2023 Hornet closer to its on-sale date and we expect to see a production version debut before the end of 2022.

What's New for 2023?

The Hornet will be a new entrant in the Dodge lineup and will sit below the mid-size Durango as a small SUV going up against rivals such as the Kia Seltos, the Mazda CX-30, and the Volkswagen Taos.

Pricing and Which One to Buy

$30,000 (est)
$33,000 (est)
$36,000 (est)
$39,000 (est)

    We're guessing on price here, but we expect the Hornet will follow in the Durango's footsteps by offering a value-oriented SXT model, racier-looking GT and R/T trims, and a luxury-focused Citadel. When we find out more about the Hornet's pricing and features, we'll update this story with those details.
