The Dodge Hornet is expected to borrow heavily from the upcoming and recently revealed Alfa Romeo Tonale compact crossover. Based on Automotive News’ report, the Hornet will be assembled alongside the Tonale in Italy and will share its platform and more.

It was Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis that confirmed that the Hornet is coming this year. Based on the report, the Hornet will be revealed at some point between the Dream Cruise and Roadkill Nights events that will take place in mid-summer.

As far as creating a concrete timeline for the Hornet, Kuniskis says “Every single thing we’re doing is like in Jell-O right now, because it’s so hard to plan anything,” He is referring to supply chain issues, among other complications.

Dodge has plenty of electrification plans going forward. One includes a new all-electric muscle car in only two years’ time.
