The Award-Winning 2024 Dodge Hornet Has Arrived

We all want to get our hands on that shiny new toy. The 2024 Dodge Hornet is the equivalent of that in the automotive industry. The performance-oriented SUV just entered its second model year, making it a fresh addition for drivers seeking adventure. One look at its style, and you'll see that it means business. The aggressive stance gives it undeniable curb appeal. But the Hornet backs up those killer looks with serious power under the hood, too.

Dodge has a reputation for creating some of the best vehicles around. So it's no surprise last year's model managed to win JD Power's award for best new vehicle quality. Yet, the 2024 Hornet somehow improved upon last year's model. We currently have this awe-inspiring SUV in stock at Patriot CDJR of Chandler, OK.

2024 Dodge Hornet Configurations

There are many ways to configure your new Dodge Hornet to match your personality. Sure, you can choose different trim levels, but Dodge also offers packages that make it easy to get exactly what you want.

These days, having the right tech in your vehicle is a must. If you believe a modern car should have the technology to match, consider the Tech Pack. It includes a 360° surround-view camera for parking assistance and active driving aids. These help automatically adjust your speed based on traffic and road conditions. The package also adds front park sensors, traffic sign recognition, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

Next is the Blacktop Package for an edgier aesthetic. It outfits the SUV with gloss black 18-inch wheels, mirror caps, exterior accents, and badges. Consider it a stealthy makeover. And while Oklahoma stays relatively mild, you'll be glad to opt for the Cold Weather Package in the winter months. It adds remote start, heated front seats, and a heated steering wheel.

Finally, turn up the heat even more with the Track Package. Upgrades include 20-inch gloss black wheels and a performance-tuned suspension with adaptive dampers. You also get Alcantara and leather sports seats, aluminum pedals, and red Brembo brake calipers to add to the sports car feel.

2024 Dodge Hornet Specs

One of the main reasons drivers eye the Hornet centers around its incredible performance specs. There are two powertrain options available.

The R/T and R/T Plus trims can be lumped together, as they both boast a high-output plug-in hybrid system generating 288 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. Properly equipped, it can even tow up to 2,000 pounds. These race-inspired trims accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 5.6 seconds!

Dodge also equipped them with a class-exclusive PowerShot feature. Hit the dash-mounted button, which temporarily boosts output by 30 horsepower for up to 15 seconds - ideal for confident passing maneuvers. Of course, with all that power comes the need for serious stopping power. The available Brembo brakes with red calipers help rein things in, delivering 62-0 mph stops in just 138 feet.

If you don't need all the bells and whistles of the R/T, the GT, and its Plus variant are still plenty powerful. In fact, the GT has the fastest top speed in its class at 140 mph. Under the hood, you'll find a 2.0L Hurricane4 Turbo engine that delivers 268 horsepower and 296 lb-ft of torque. It's paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission and comes standard with all-wheel drive for better traction and handling.

2024 Dodge Hornet Interior

While performance might draw you in initially, the interior amenities ensure you stay comfortable during your adventures. Cues from the 2024 Dodge Hornet's racing lineage bleed over inside the cabin as well. For example, available red leather seat inserts give a competition-inspired vibe. Paddle shifters also add engagement when driving.

You'll have the latest tech keeping you informed and entertained. The 360-degree camera available provides safety and parking assistance. Stay connected via the standard 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot.

Access features using the responsive 10.25-inch Uconnect 5 touchscreen. Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard, and Amazon Alexa allows voice commands for added convenience. But what good is all that technology if you can't hear it? The available Harman Kardon premium audio system has 14 speakers plus a subwoofer for incredible sound quality. It's something you have to hear to believe.
