Dodge has been a staple in the automotive industry for over a century, producing some of the most iconic vehicles in history. Among them is the Dodge Omni GLH (Goes Like Hell), a compact car that became a legend among enthusiasts for its performance capabilities. Dodge paid tribute to this classic ride with the 2015 Dodge Dart GLH Concept, showcasing its commitment to innovation and pushing the boundaries of what a compact car could be.
The Dart GLH Concept’s athletic and stylish exterior was finished in Pitch Black and looked ready to pounce. Its in-your-face front fascia with concept grille details and a Mopar Performance aluminum hood was reminiscent of the original Omni GLH. The body kit created a speedy, nimble appearance, featuring a production front chin splitter, side sill accents, and rear fascia diffuser, with red accents outlining the lower body. The Mopar 18-inch wheels, painted anodized black with matching Mopar center caps, added to the car’s sleek and menacing appearance.
The Dart GLH Concept’s interior was equally impressive, with all-black Katzkin leather seats modified with concept red mesh seat inserts and red stitch accent touches on the bolsters and armrest. The Dodge sport steering wheel, Mopar pedal kit, Mopar shift knob, Mopar premium carpet mats, and Mopar door sill guards featuring the Dart logo added extra performance to the car. The red on the door pulls and instrument panel tracer were production offerings, completing the car’s enhanced interior.
The Dart GLH Concept was a tribute to the Omni GLH’s legacy and captured the spirit of performance that Dodge enthusiasts had come to expect from the brand. The compact car segment was fiercely competitive, and the Dart GLH Concept stood out with its bold design and enhanced performance features. The car was proof that even in the modern era, Dodge still had what it took to produce a car that embodied the spirit of the classic Omni GLH.
Fast forward to today, and Dodge has continued to evolve the GLH Concept, introducing the new Hornet GLH through its Direct Connection parts catalog in August for the 2023 Dodge Hornet GT. The Hornet GLH boasts a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, producing 260 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque, paired with a 6-speed manual transmission. The car also features Mopar performance parts such as a high-performance brake kit, cold air intake, and a cat-back exhaust system. The Hornet GLH’s design is just as impressive, with its unique front grille and blacked-out exterior accents.
The Hornet GLH is the latest in a long line of Dodge vehicles that embody the brand’s legacy of performance. From the Omni GLH to the Dart GLH Concept to the Hornet GLH, Dodge has continuously pushed the boundaries of what a compact car can be, delivering vehicles that are not only fun to drive but also stylish and eye-catching.
