The EPA has posted the Dodge Hornet’s official fuel economy numbers, for the 2-liter turbocharged engine and all wheel drive.

2023 Dodge Hornet fuel economy

The compact car, based on the Jeep Compass via the Alfa Romeo Tonale, is rated at 21 mpg city, 29 highway, 24 combined, according to the EPA. It has an automatic transmission and takes regular, not premium, gasoline.

The 2023 Dodge Hornet will be available in March; a more powerful hybrid-electric version, the R/T, may turn in better economy figures when it arrives shortly after the Hornet GT. The R/T has a 1.3 liter gasoline engine, as seen in the Jeep Renegade, paired with an electric motor to bring a 0-60 time of 7.1 seconds—or, with PowerShot enabled, 6.1 seconds.

The GT is rated at 265 hp and 296 lb-ft of torque, well above the Jeep Compass’ ratings with the same basic engine.

  1. Have these vehicle spent the summer testing in Death Valley and the winter in Bemidji? The Renault folks never did and their cars were. a disaster. In the end e had to buy back every Alliance ever built due to heater core failures. This is America NOT Europe and the condition run the extremes. In many locations you can drop from 8000+ feet to 100 feet below sea level (freezing weather to 108℉) in a 1 hour drive.
