The 2023 Dodge Hornet GT GLH Concept, which was displayed during the Hornet global reveal this past week, showcases available Direct Connection upgrades to enhance the performance of the newest entry in the four-vehicle Dodge lineup.
The Hornet GT GLH pays homage to the high-performance Dodge Omni GLH (Goes Like Hell) produced in the mid-1980s. The Hornet GT GLH boasts a better power-to-weight ratio than the original and provides a look at one potential performance path created with Direct Connection parts.
Direct Connection Stage Kits –
Direct Connection stage kits for the Dodge Hornet, included on the Hornet GT GLH, offer stackable performance upgrades, enabling enthusiasts to achieve their performance goals with upgrades to the engine and transmission calibrations.
The Direct Connection Stage Kit boosts the Hornet GT and includes a Direct Connection Engine Control Unit (ECU) Tuner, a unique calibration code keychain, increased boost calibration, and transmission calibration.
Direct Connection Chassis/Exhaust/Exterior Parts –
Stage kits represent just one facet of the Direct Connection performance parts lineup that will be available for the Dodge Hornet. Additional performance upgrades for the Hornet will include:
- Lowering kit: Drops the Hornet more than an inch to the ground with new front and rear springs, creating a lower center of gravity and enhanced cornering dynamics
- Dual Exhaust: Upgrades the standard exhaust of the Hornet GT to a less restrictive, dual exit exhaust with black chrome tips going through the bumper on the Hornet GT GLH, resulting in a throaty performance note
- Wheels: Hornet GT GLH rolls on exclusive Direction Connection-branded GLH 20-inch painted and machine-faced wheels
- Graphics: Adds a unique exterior look with exclusive Direct Connection GLH graphics, including stripes and logos
Direct Connection parts will also be available to upgrade the Dodge Hornet R/T PHEV. Additional details, including horsepower numbers, pricing, and availability of Direct Connection parts for the Dodge Hornet, will be announced at a later date.
