Dodge Hornet RT Charging Guide

Find Your Dodge at Arrigo CDJR Sawgrass!

The Dodge Hornet R/T is the first-ever Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) from the brand! This remarkable vehicle marks a significant milestone in Dodge’s commitment to innovation and sustainability. The Hornet R/T combines the performance of Dodge vehicles with cutting-edge hybrid technology, setting a new standard for efficiency and power. Here at Arrigo Sawgrass, we want all of our customers in the Fort Lauderdale area to feel informed about their hybrid vehicles. We want to fill you in on some of the top charging tips, as well as other frequently asked questions about the Dodge Hornet R/T! Stay tuned as we delve deeper into the hybrid features of the Hornet R/T below!

What Powertrain does the Dodge Hornet R/T Have?

As we mentioned above, the R/T is Dodge’s first plug-in hybrid. But what makes this vehicle run? As a PHEV, the R/T combines power from a gas engine and a rechargeable battery. This powertrain offers 288 horsepower, and 383 lb-ft of torque, and allows the Hornet to go from 0- 60 mph in just 5.6 seconds! If you’re looking for an extra boost, you can use the PowerShot button, which will add an additional 30 horsepower. Plus, the Hornet can reach a top speed of 128 mph, perfect for those speed demons out there who want to appreciate Dodge’s racing heritage. Not only that, but the Hornet offers three drive modes, Hybrid, Electric, and eSave, so that you can choose how and when you want to use energy from your battery pack or gas tank!

What are the Benefits of Driving the Hornet R/T?

There are so many great benefits to choosing a plug-in hybrid vehicle like the Dodge Hornet R/T! The most obvious benefit is the environmental payoff, but that’s only the beginning. Hybrid vehicles can significantly reduce your gas consumption, which will have an impact on your wallet! The cost of charging your EV or PHEV is about 3-5 times cheaper than the equivalent cost of gas, so you can do the math on just how much you can save. Speaking of savings, you can take advantage of state and federal tax incentives that will help Florida residents save on the overall cost of their purchase when they choose a plug-in hybrid! Our finance team here at Arrigo CDJR Sawgrass will be happy to help you find out how you can save.

How Can I Charge My Hornet R/T?

If you’re thinking about buying a Hornet R/T, or any PHEV for the first time, you might have some questions about charging. First off, the R/T offers an impressive electric driving range of up to 32 miles, and a total driving range of up to 360 miles! Charging your EV is just as easy as filling it with gas. The port is located on the driver’s side, near the side mirror. Simply put the car in park, turn it off, and plug it in! You can tell the cord is properly plugged in when you hear a click, and see the indicator lights on the port turn on. You can charge your Hornet R/T with either a Level I or Level II charging cable, found at a public or at-home charging station. Just be sure to avoid Level III or “fast-charging” cables, as these are not compatible.

Helpful Dodge R/T Charging Tips

There are many ways to make your charging experience more efficient, affordable, and convenient! First off, we recommend installing a home charging station so that you can easily recharge your R/T overnight, and make charging part of your daily routine. You can order home chargers from Mopar, either online or by giving our service center a call! If you’re unsure about how to make a charging schedule, don’t worry! Your Dodge R/T’s Uconnect Infotainment system has a charging schedule feature, which will help you build habits around charging, and also lets you set up specifications about how much you want to charge your vehicle each time you stop. The Dodge Hornet R/T also comes with a portable charging cable located in the trunk!
