Why I LIKE The 2023 DODGE HORNET That Dodge Revealed

YES or NO To This New Compact Car

What’s good guys what’s good my royalty family back at it again with another video just a quick update let’s see what y’all think about this y’all see the time thumbnail not gonna hold out too long like comment and subscribe let’s get into it the tim kamiskis again reveals another pivotal model to the brotherhood of dodge and i wanted to create this video to

Show you how to clip from what he prevented what he revealed obviously y’all probably seen this already i just wanted to do this for another reason so enjoy this clip say hello to our new little friends this is the all-new dodge hornet and you know how much dodge loves speed and in this case it’s not just the vehicle it’s the segment as well compact utilities

Is the hottest segment in the industry this is over a million units today and it’s going to grow another 48 percent in the next five years but it’s more than the size and the growth of the market that attracted us to this segment it’s what attracted those million plus buyers that most attracted us this audience is looking for price value and fuel economy you can

Binge read the surveys from these customers and you won’t see a single mention of fun to drive power or can you even imagine vehicle image for dodge we liked what we didn’t see in the segment why bias because for a brand that’s been built on stuffing horsepower and attitude into otherwise stodgy segments we saw an opportunity to add performance and personality

To a segment defined by efficiency and practicality it just seemed like the perfect little politically correct community for dodge to come in and disrupt it and rile it up because this community is made of a younger generation that’s fueling the growth of this historically vanilla segment and we know who these shoppers are well at least ones that are kind of like

Them because dodge has the youngest demographic in the industry so we have tons of them and we know there’s a lot of members in there standing on the side with a hunger to stand out and stand apart but with some performance and some style and that’s where hornet comes in to give them a new choice a new gateway a statement to fill that void with powertrain options

Especially for that younger shopper looking to stand out with an electrified vehicle so the hornet arrives with a multi-energy powertrain that these customers are looking for give them a menu of performance and efficiency and it starts with this one it starts with the hornet gt with the hurricane four engine 265 horsepower 295 pound-feet of torque now put that

Into perspective for a second that is more than the pentastar charger challenger in durango that are bigger vehicles and with standard all-wheel drive torque vectoring electronic limited slip differential oconee high performance suspension best in class handling now hang on i’m talking about the first price class of the car those credentials alone would give

It enough street cred to be a dodge but the design of the hornet is also on point it’s a very muscular and aggressive exterior for this segment it has a driver-centric copper pock cockpit cockpit very tough for me to say packed with the latest tech powertrain this is the first electrified vehicle for the dodge brand and this is the most powerful compact crossover

You can buy now this combination is a brain twister for an old-school hot rodder like me 1.3 liter turbo and an e-axle delivering 285 horsepower and torque 383 pound-feet of torque that’s almost 100 pound-feet of torque more than the gas car it’s damn near v8 torque out of a small compact uv with less than a liter and a half of ice power now if you ever doubted

The advantages of electrification this really proves it this is serious technology and it shows why dodge is getting serious in this space not only will this combination deliver substantially more torque for everyday driving it’s also going to give you 30 miles pure electric range and an mpge of 75 miles per gallon with nearly v8 torque amazing but we also know

Nobody’s buying a dodge on a spreadsheet so we also use the e-motor to have some fun and we added a segment exclusive power shot push-to-pass system powershot is an on-demand system that maxes out battery discharge and gives you an additional 25 horsepower and knocks a full second off the rt 0 to 60 time now the lawyers will not let me tell you what i call it

Yep this is what it is and you probably if you’re watching close spotted it in the opening video this is the hornet glh from direct connection and my new best little friend this thing is a blast straight from direct connection with an increased performance stage kit so yeah i see the models y’all see they offer an rt a gt rt and the glh models of that dodge

Hornet then to see that it’s not fully electric it’s different because i really thought they was gonna have to horn it as the first electric like uv suv type of compact car because of the renderings the what they’ve been saying all that good stuff so i just want to see what y’all think about this how y’all feel about that is this something that you’re gonna

Try to get into or maybe i will stick and go somewhere else but all the information all the history was in not the history but all the information about the hornets was in that video i just wanted to come to y’all and see what y’all think is this a yes or no do you feel like uh the age group that they’re shooting for obviously they’re saying dodge being a lot

Being the demographic is a lot younger i mean i don’t know what age group but it’s obviously younger how would they how y’all feel about the response is going to be when this becomes available as an option are we going to see dodge hornets on the street a lot yes or no so guys another quick video another kick update hopefully i enjoyed this if y’all feeling it

Let me know let me know but other than that i’ll catch on next video you
