Dodge Hornet R/T

The Hornet R/T is powered by a 1.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine which is paired with a rear axle mounted electric motor as well as a six-speed automatic transmission. The Hornet R/T is considered to be the segment’s most powerful utility vehicle, reaching up to 285 plus horsepower and 383 lb. ft. of torque.


The 15.5-kWh lithium-ion battery delivers up to 30 miles of all-electric range. Just because the R/T is a hybrid electric vehicle doesn’t mean that it lacks power and performance. The class-exclusive, on-demand PowerShot feature sends a jolt of 25 additional horsepower which shaves a full second off of the 0-60 mph in 6.1 seconds.

Sport Mode is also offered and drivers have the choice between three hybrid driving modes which include Hybrid, Electric, and E-Save. AWD comes standard with the R/T and it works by adjusting power automatically between the 1.3-liter engine and the electric motor to deliver instant torque and optimal traction control to all four wheels.
