Engine & Performance Specs

Engine & Performance Specs

From the moment this vehicle hits the market, the Dodge Hornet Plug-In Hybrid will be ready to tear up the streets. It will feature a turbocharged 1.3-liter four-cylinder engine and an electric motor that will offer you 288-horsepower. This will be paired with a six-speed automatic transmission system and all-wheel drive for better traction as you take curves and accept new adventures.

Go from 0 to 60 mph in about six seconds with the Dodge Hornet PHEV, and enjoy top speeds of 128 mph. While this vehicle satisfies your need for speed, it will also help you save money at the gas pump. While we’re still awaiting exact MPGe figures, we know that this vehicle will likely outpace the GT in fuel economy, meaning you can expect more than 21/29/24 MPG (City/Highway/Combined).1

Range & Battery Specs

On top of everything we’ve already said, as a plug-in hybrid, this vehicle will come with an all-electric range of around 30 miles, thanks to its 15.5-kWh battery. With this capability, you can pop over to the grocery store, commute to work, or grab a coffee without using any gasoline.

When you return home, you can set your vehicle up to charge. To learn more about Dodge Hornet R/T specs as they become available to us, contact our team today.

We can also tell you about charging. When you buy a PHEV from us, it’s easy to get a 7.4-kW Level II installed in your home that will charge your SUV back up to 100% in about two and a half hours.

When you are out on long road trips, you can utilize Level III fast-charging stations. These locations are popping up all over the country, with 50,000 locations offering a total of 130,000 charging ports as of this writing.

Exterior and Interior Design

The Dodge Hornet R/T will resemble the gasoline-only versions of the Dodge Hornet in many ways. Therefore, if you’re thinking about grabbing this PHEV, stop by our Dodge dealer in Frisco, TX, to check out the GT or GT Plus version and get an in-person idea of what to expect.

This vehicle measures approximately 178 inches long, 82 inches wide, and 63 inches tall, with a 27 cubic-foot cargo area behind the second-row seats.

We expect the R/T to have the black upholstery with red stitching found on the GT, while the R/T Plus version will likely feature the same leather as the GT Plus. A 12.3-inch Driver Information Digital Cluster Display will help you access driver-assistance features, while the available 14-speaker Harman Kardon® Premium Audio System will help bring your favorite music to life inside the cabin. There is so much to love about new Dodge cars for sale.

Available packages are likely to be similar, too. For example, those looking to make their vehicle more dangerous-looking might opt for the Blackout Package, which adds stealthy blacked-out accents to your ride. The Technology Package increases your array of driver-assistance features so that you can feel even more confident in the driver’s seat. While the weather might not get the chilliest in Texas, the Cold Weather Package can still be useful, especially if you like to travel north. It equips your vehicle with a heated steering wheel, heated front seats, and a remote starting system.
