A Second Hornet GLH Concept Has Debuted

2024 Dodge Hornet GLH Concept RT R/T Direct Connection
The 2024 Dodge Hornet R/T GLH Concept showcases potential Direct Connection performance parts upgrades for the newest entry in the Dodge lineup.

The Dodge Hornet may be a departure from the 1,025 horsepower Demon 170 that debuted this week. But, after recently driving it, we can attest that the Hornet is at least a fun alternative to the rest of the small SUV field that otherwise have as much personality as a refrigerator.

Adding to the appeal of the Dodge Hornet is the expected support of Direct Connection. Dodge previously teased the possibilities with a 2023 Hornet GT GLH Concept during Speed Week last summer. And during the media drive program, it was evident that the Dodge Hornet R/T hybrid SUV would be getting Go Like Hell parts from Direct Connection, as well.

2024 Dodge Hornet R/T GLH Concept: Details

The Dodge Hornet R/T GLH Concept should make some performance-hungry customers who desire good fuel economy hopeful. The GLH add-ons will come from Direct Connection, which means they can be ordered after the purchase of a Dodge Hornet and installed by a dealer. Dodge still hasn’t specified the performance increases for either GLH trims but hinted at what the 2.0-liter turbocharged GT version might have. The standard Hornet GT produces 268 horsepower. As the GLH will be available with a “stage one” engine and transmission tune for the nine-speed automatic, we can expect that number to boost the Hornet to over 300 ponies while making the transmission more responsive with the tune.


As for the Dodge Hornet R/T GLH, engineers were even less talkative about what upgrades it’ll include. However, since the car has a smaller engine and less can be done to the vehicle with an electric motor, we can expect it to receive less of a power bump than the GT. Both GLH packages will include a one-inch suspension lowering kit, which drops the vehicle height enough to make it appear more like a hatchback than a crossover. In addition, the GLH will include special 20-inch painted, machine-faced wheels, painted lower bumpers, and graphics.

Zac's love for cars started at a young age, after seeing the popular Eleanor from Gone In 60 Seconds. From there, fascination and enthusiasm blossomed and to this day the Ford Mustang remains a favorite. His first job started out detailing cars, but also provided the opportunity to work on restoration including an 1968 Ford Mustang, Pontiac Firebird, and a C3 Corvette, though he left that job before further work and experience could be had. From there, he was a detailer at a car dealership before quitting that job to try and finish college.

Much of his free time while studying was spent watching YouTube videos regarding new cars, or off-roading. 4WD247 is a personal favorite channel which rekindled a dying flame in car enthusiasm, now tailored towards trucks and SUVs and the fun that can be had building up an overlanding rig, and going on adventures, though, that chapter remains unwritten for the time being.
