The 2023 Dodge Hornet has been revealed with a name from the automotive industry’s past.

The Hudson Hornet was a full-size car that became famous in NASCAR in the early 1950s and was absorbed into AMC along with the Hudson brand. It was followed by the AMC Hornet compact car lineup sold from 1970-1977.

Chrysler acquired its rival in 1987 and kept all the best stuff, including Jeep and a list of model names, which have been passed down to Dodge’s current parent company, Stellantis.

The Dodge Hornet falls somewhere between its predecessors as a compact SUV that’s based on the recently introduced Alfa Romeo Tonale but was redesigned and reengineered to make it look and feel more like a Dodge.

It’s showcasing some of the upgrades with a Hornet GT GLH Concept. GLH is short for “goes like hell” and is a tip of the hat to the Dodge Omni GLH of the 1980s, which was the quintessential American hot hatchback of the era. Dodge plans to offer a package incorporating many of the accessories and the GLH graphics in the future.

The Hornet R/T also has a PowerShot feature that increases the power by 25 horsepower in 15-second bursts when the driver pulls on both of the steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters simultaneously and floors the throttle, with a 15-second cool-down period required between shots.

Driven more sedately, the Hornet R/T is expected to be able to cover over 30 miles in all-electric mode between charges. A Track Pack option will be available for both models that adds computer-adjustable suspension, 20-inch performance wheels and other equipment.
