The Dodge Hornet is a compact MPV concept car that Dodge developed and unveiled in 2006. Dodge’s first effort to construct a vehicle of this size was scheduled for introduction in 2010, but the idea was abandoned as a result of the 2009 financial crisis and the Chrysler Group restructuring.
When Chrysler (Dodge’s parent company) acquired American Motors Corporation (AMC) in 1987, the rights to the “Hornet” brand, which was first used on a revolutionary Hudson model, were transferred to Chrysler.
