There have been many rumors as of late concerning Dodge finally releasing the Hornet. With the coming demise of the Grand Caravan minivan, the Dodge lineup will soon consist of only four vehicle lines: the Challenger coup, Charger sedan, Durango three-row SUV, and the smaller Journey crossover. With the Grand Caravan ceasing to be produced, that means factory space could be opened up for production of the Hornet.
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has recently renewed two trademarks, those being “Dodge Hornet” and “Hornet”. For those that don’t know, the Dodge Hornet was, most recently, a concept vehicle that was shown to the public back in 2006. It is possible that the Hornet will be the same style of compact car that was shown in 2006, but this is all up to speculation. Due to the increasing popularity of crossover vehicles and SUVs, it’s also fair to predict that the Hornet may end up becoming a crossover or SUV.
Among the many concepts that have come and gone, there are few that look like the Dodge Hornet. Initially, the 5-door mini multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) concept was built with a 1.6-Liter supercharged 4-cylinder Tritec engine that delivered 170 horsepower. By 2011 though, after Fiat and Dodge were merged, the concept was turned into a subcompact vehicle that would have 40 mpg, which is great gas mileage. However, that concept eventually came out as the Dodge Dart. Now it appears Dodge is again back to work on delivering the Hornet after all.

There have been many rumors as of late concerning the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody. Dodge has not confirmed anything as of yet, but debadged and camouflaged versions have been spotted. Allegedly the Redeye was slated for a 2020 release, but is being pushed back to 2021. The Redeye will have a 6.2-liter Hemi V8 engine with 797 horsepower and 717 pound-feet of torque. There will be cosmetic changes, such as a larger center scoop on the hood which will feed a cold-intake system. The two heat extractors will be moved further back on the hood and will rotate 90 degrees so they face the sides of the Redeye instead of facing the windshield. The Redeye will only be available in widebody form, and Redeye badges will decorate the fenders, grille, and decklid.
The exterior isn’t the only thing that is being changed with the 2021 Hellcat Redeye. The Interior has many things being evolved from its previous iterations, such as including a 6,500-rpm redline, which is 500 rpms higher than the 707 horsepower Charger Hellcat; a second dual-stage fuel pump; fitment of the SRT Power Chiller and the SRT After-Run Chiller, as well as stronger prop and half shafts. It’s been rumored that the availability of a standard 2.62 final drive ratio or an optional 3.09 final gear. These changes from the 2020 Hellcat will make the 0-60 mph time decrease to 3.4 seconds, and increase the Hellcat Redeye’s speed up to over 200 mph.
The big thing left to speculation is when Dodge will unveil the new Hellcat Redeye. There were rumors that the Redeye would be shown to the public this month, but with the world being in lockdown due to COVID-19, it’s impossible to know when Dodge will show the goods. Stay tuned, muscle car fans!
