Dodge is revitalizing an older nameplate in the Dodge Hornet. This vehicle will join the currently short list of Dodge vehicles. The Dodge brand arrived with a Dodge Hornet concept that was shown off in 2006, but it never debuted. 2006 was the same year the Dodge Charger was reintroduced to the world. The 2006 Hornet concept was produced with hopes to see the prototype turn into a production vehicle in 2008 with the Challenger. Dodge at that time was about to start with a big push in the European markets and aspired to thrust the Hornet by 2010. The platform of the Hornet would end up being the same one applied to the Alfa Romeo Giulietta. This meant the Dodge sedan would offer this “C-Evo” platform and notwithstanding the Hornet name being trademarked in 2011, they opted to name the vehicle the Dodge Dart instead. The Dodge Dart is no longer offered by Dodge, but they still produce two cars and the popular SUV, the Dodge Durango, alongside the famed Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger muscle cars.

Added Production Choices Are Being Revealed

The COVID-19 outbreak slowed the production for Dodge for three months. This was something that hindered the Dodge Hornet, as Alfa Romeo’s new CEO, previously of Peugeot, new expectations of enhanced performance from the Tonale’s PHEV drivetrain. As of April, Automotive News reports, Stellantis aimed to commence Tonale production in March 2022 and start sales on June 4 of 2022. This would indicate that the Dodge Hornet’s arrival could be in around the same time frame. In a story written by Passione Auto Italiane, the most current Dodge vehicles are expected to be produced alongside the forthcoming Alfa Romeo Tonale at the Pomigliano D’Arco plant in Italy. We are always looking ahead to what Dodge will provide customers next, but the new era of Dodge vehicles is coming sooner than later; starting with the Dodge Hornet we hope.

Likelihood of the Dodge Hornet

The ongoing rumor for the 2022 Dodge Hornet also insists that the Hornet will be produced on the sub-Stelvio crossover. As such, it will be using the same turbo 2.0-Liter GME engine. While the news didn’t discuss anything about a hybrid variant of the Dodge crossover, we can presume so considering the Alfa Romeo Tonale will produce a PHEV version, but this is the notion that affected its schedule. There are remarkable expectations that Dodge might even go the route its fellow Stellantis brand, Jeep, is headed with a fully electric vehicle approaching. Ultimately, we can expect that to happen, but currently, the current age of Dodge vehicles is nevertheless here for now. When looking at the 2021 model year Dodge muscle cars, and we are still grateful for the heart-racing power and enjoyment brought to us by the Dodge brand.
