2023 Dodge Hornet Costs Just Over $31,000

The new entry point to Dodge's lineup looks cool and isn't terribly expensive ...

  • The Dodge Hornet is on its way to dealerships, and we now know how much it's going to cost.
  • Base GT models will start at $31,590, while the GT Plus trim will be priced from $36,590.
  • The R/T Plug-in Hybrid model hasn't been priced yet, but we will get pricing info later on.

The 2023 Dodge Hornet is a big step in a new direction for the brand. It's a compact crossover that rides on an all-new platform that's shared with the Alfa Romeo Tonale, and it debuts a fresh design, new tech, and Dodge's new focus on cars that don't need 800 horsepower under the hood. As it makes its way to a dealer near you, we finally know how much the new Hornet is going to cost. After destination fees are applied, the Hornet will cost $31,590 for the base GT, while more generously equipped GT Plus models will be priced at $36,590 before you start digging into the options list.

The GT model is the base Hornet and, no, GT doesn't mean there's some great big engine under the hood. In fact, the GT and the GT Plus both feature a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, but it's a punchy one. Dodge says the engine will make 268 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. An even more powerful R/T model that will feature a plug-in hybrid powertrain will come later in spring 2023, and we'll know more about that car closer to its launch. That said, we know plenty about the GT models, and we'll take a deep dive on those below.
