  1. OK, so it looks pretty cool but…. IT’S A CHRYSLER! 🙄💩

      This is why Dodge, Alfa Romeo, Maserati, Chrysler are on death row and have a record of discontinuing the most models

    • Nathaniel Rudolph | April 6, 2023 at 11:40 PM |

      Meaning ?? I have near or over 200k on three of my current Chrysler cars . You’re misinformed

    • Normal User | April 7, 2023 at 5:54 AM |

      It’s not. It’s an Alfa Romeo.

    A Dodge made by Fiat, what could possibly go wrong? 😂

    • qq – how much do you like the challenger and charger? because they might be getting a variation of the Julia’s platform when they get updated.

    • If you’re going from origin. It’s actually Jeep Compass > Alfa Romeo Tonale (modified Jeep Compass platform) = Dodge Hornet (Rebadged Tonale). The Hornet is essentially based on the Compass.

    • ​@V G jeep compass platform is from fiat platform(small wide) .

    • Normal User | April 7, 2023 at 5:55 AM |

      ​@Cal Nope. Jeep Compass platform is an evolution of the Fiat 500 one.

  4. Rather than bring back a name from the past a new name for a new vehicle would have been better. Anything but Hornet.

  5. A Dodge with an Alpha Romeo power train – a marriage made in heaven … if your best friends with your mechanic …

    • The Alfa Romeo PHEV powertrain is the same one that is being used in the Jeep Compass 4xe out in the UK for a while now. It just hasn’t come to our shores yet. It’s not an Alfa Romeo specific powertrain. It’s a global one used in a bunch of Stellantis cars that’s proven to be pretty good.

    • Well if you are best friends with your mechanic, chances are you are sucker for unreliable cars already, so nothing new 😂😂

    • That might have been true in the1970s&80s. Those days are long gone for Alfa today they are just as reliable as anyone else.

    You lost me at it share part with……😢

  7. It looks promising as far as performance, however It reeks poor reliability. I still wish Chrysler the best and hope it doesn’t go the wayside pasture like the Dart did.

  8. Hmmmm ….make me wonder

  9. Simmer Pete | April 6, 2023 at 11:11 PM |

    Needs more backseat room. Hopefully doesn’t follow the Dart and Caliber.

    I hate that I really like this car

  11. Dayana Garcia | April 7, 2023 at 12:31 AM |

    Wow that silhouette has been used now by like 5 manufacturers this year. Not so new when you have seen it before

  12. Johnathan Glez | April 7, 2023 at 1:00 AM |

    Looks like a flop😂

  13. I sure do like to dodge hornets.

  14. Predicted reliability rating… 😂

    • Tim Spencer | April 7, 2023 at 2:56 PM |

      I predict a long, meaningful and profitable relationship between the owner than the mechanic. 😍

  15. Christopher H | April 7, 2023 at 11:48 AM |

    Man, these crossovers all look exactly the same. They’re ugly!

  16. Chris Zawertany | April 7, 2023 at 2:09 PM |

    Good looking piece of junk Stelvio in disguise
