Now - let's examine what gives this SUV its sting!

2024 Dodge Hornet Performance

We know what you really want to hear first - how is this compact SUV so quick? In one word: power. Let's start under the hood. The 2024 Hornet offers two different engine configurations depending on the trim level. 

First, the GT and its "Plus" variant. After all, it has the fastest top speed in its class at 140 mph. A 2.0L Hurricane4 Turbo engine is powering those trims, which delivers 268 horsepower and 296 lb-ft of torque. It links to a nine-speed automatic transmission and comes with a standard all-wheel drive across the lineup.

Helping deliver all that power to the pavement is an available sport mode. Activated by a button on the steering wheel, sport mode sharpens the throttle response, tightens the steering, and engages an electronically limited-slip differential.

Transitioning to the R/T and its Plus version, motivation comes via a high-output plug-in hybrid system. The combo generates 288 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. You can even tow up to 2,000 pounds when properly equipped. With that said, the R/T trims sprint to 60 mph in just 5.6 seconds.

But wait, there's more! The R/T also introduces Dodge's Class-Exclusive PowerShot feature. Hit the button on the dash, and PowerShot boosts output by an extra 30 horsepower for up to 15 seconds, which is perfect for confident passing maneuvers. It's no secret that all that power requires some serious stopping power. Available Brembo brakes with red calipers help rein things in, delivering 62-0 mph stops in just 138 feet. 

2024 Dodge Hornet Interior

With performance credentials like that, you may worry the 2024 Dodge Hornet skimps on practicality and comfort - not so. There's plenty of room inside for passengers and cargo alike. You can even change the color of the interior to suit your style. 

Speaking of racing, the available paddle shifters add an extra level of excitement to your driving experience. Of course, with modern tech being key, Dodge equips the Hornet with the latest gadgets, too. Those include the Uconnect 5 infotainment system with a responsive touchscreen to access features.

Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard. Amazon Alexa is available for added convenience. If you want to take your experience to the next level, go for the available Harman Kardon premium audio system. With 14 speakers plus a subwoofer, it's something you have to hear to believe. 

2024 Dodge Hornet Packages

The fun doesn't stop with what comes standard. Dodge offers several packages to customize the 2024 Hornet to your exact taste. These equipment groups are available across multiple trim levels too.

Take the Track Package, for instance. As the name suggests, it turns up the heat for even quicker acceleration, harder cornering, and sports car-like looks. Upgrades include 20-inch gloss black wheels, a performance-tuned suspension with adaptive dampers, Alcantara and
leather sport seats, aluminum pedals, and red Brembo brake calipers.

Next up is the Blacktop Package for those seeking a darker, more menacing presence. The additions consist of 18-inch gloss black wheels, black exterior accents, mirror caps, and badges.
Consider it a stealth makeover.

For those who want to add some high-tech features to their Hornet, there's the Tech Pack. This package includes a 360° surround-view camera, active driving assist, traffic sign recognition,
intelligent speed assist, drowsy driver detection, and front park sensors. It also comes with a leather-wrapped steering wheel for a touch of luxury.

Finally, the Cold Weather Package ensures you stay cozy no matter how frosty it gets. Heatedfront seats, heated steering wheel, and remote start help take the sting out of winter.

2024 Dodge Hornet Trim Levels

The 2024 Dodge Hornet brings an electrified future to the Dodge brand. With a variety of trim levels to choose from, there's a Hornet for every driver. Let's take a closer look at what each has to offer.

Choosing the right trim level depends on your priorities. Performance? Technology? Comfort? Here's what you need to know to take your pick from our Patriot Dodge dealership. 


The GT is the gas-powered model with the best top speed in its class. Inside, a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system keeps you informed and entertained. It's equipped with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a 14-speaker Harman Kardon surround sound system.

A 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster provides crisp, customizable displays. The cluster also integrates navigation with turn-by-turn directions right in front of the driver. Adaptive cruise control makes highway driving more relaxing, automatically adjusting speed to maintain a set distance from vehicles ahead.

Heated and ventilated leather front seats with driver memory settings coddle on longer trips. And available all-wheel drive with torque vectoring helps maximize traction and control.


Standout Features:

  • Blind spot warning system: Alerts you if a vehicle is in your blind spot to help avoid collisions when changing lanes.
  • Hands-Free Power Liftgate: Conveniently open the rear hatch by waving your foot under the bumper when your hands are full.
  • Rain sensing wipers: Automatically activate and adjust wiping speed based on rainfall to help maintain clear visibility.


GT Plus

The GT Plus builds on the GT with added technology and comfort features. A power sunroof opens up the cabin while heated front seats and steering wheel take the edge off cold mornings. Upgraded KONI frequency selective damping suspension sharpens handling precision.

Inside, cloth and leatherette seats strike an optimal balance of comfort and support. Signature LED headlamps and running lamps give the Hornet an eye-catching nighttime presence.

Standout Features:

  • Heated side mirrors: Quickly clear frost and fog for better rear visibility in cold weather.
  • Voice-activated navigation: Hands-free access to turn-by-turn directions, points of interest, and more.


The R/T introduces the electrified 1.3L turbo plug-in hybrid powertrain to the lineup. It seamlessly switches between electric and gas power for efficiency, delivering an EPA-estimated 32 miles of all-electric range. 

This setup also enables three distinct drive modes: E-Save Mode to conserve battery charge, Electric Mode for silent running on battery power alone, and Hybrid Mode to blend gas and electric power seamlessly.

The R/T hybrid rides on 18-inch graphite wheels with the Brembo brakes we mentioned earlier. It gains style points for the Abyss finish on the lower exterior trim.

Finally, the dual exhaust tips give it an attitude. Inside, you'll find a 12-way power driver seat with memory, a heated steering wheel, and heated front seats.

Standout Features:

  • Hybrid Powertrain: Enjoy silent electric driving for daily commutes while retaining the range and power of gas for longer trips.
  • Rear Parking Sensors: Audible alerts and visual displays identify obstacles when backing up to prevent bumps and scrapes.



R/T Plus

For drivers wanting maximum luxury with their performance, the R/T Plus goes all-in on premium features. Heated and ventilated leather front seats provide 12-way power adjustability. Open up the cabin with the available power sunroof. The Harman Kardon 14-speaker audio system turns your Hornet into a personal concert hall.

Brembo brakes with red calipers deliver fade-resistant stopping power. Inside and out, the R/T Plus surrounds the driver in comfort, technology, and head-turning style. 


Standout Features:

  • Top Trim: As the pinnacle Hornet model, the R/T Plus wants nothing with a premium mix of amenities and performance.
  • Immobilizer: This anti-theft system prevents hotwiring or tampering for added peace of mind.
