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.

Pricing and Which One to Buy
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.
