Yahoo Finance's Brian Sozzi and Brad Smith discuss the new Hornet vehicle from Dodge.
BRIAN SOZZI: Dodge is unveiling its 2023 Dodge Hornet. That was designed and redesigned, re-engineered to make it feel like a 1950s car. And guys, I really hate this car. I do not like this car. I am a muscle car guy through and through. The fact that Dodge is putting the Hornet name, a storied muscle car name on, essentially, a crossover with a kind of a sporty-looking interior, that's an embarrassment to the Hornet name.
BRAD SMITH: You don't like it, huh?
BRIAN SOZZI: No, they want-- I mean, customers deserve better. You take this, plus they told us earlier this week that the Challenger-- I was a former Challenger owner. The Challenger and Charger are going to be discontinued at the end of next year because they're going to electric. It's just a bad week for Dodge. That car is really ugly.
BRAD SMITH: Does that enter the--
BRIAN SOZZI: Really ugly.
BRAD SMITH: Well, OK, so yeah, it's an ugly car. But does that answer the Challenger and the Charger into, like, this classic car consortium, if you will--
BRIAN SOZZI: Yes.
BRAD SMITH: --if you know that it's just not going to be available anymore?
BRIAN SOZZI: And now I'm regretting selling my Dodge Challenger to the likes of Carvana.
BRAD SMITH: Well, you've got one year to get one.
BRIAN SOZZI: I do. Maybe I'll find it and go buy it back. But again, this Hornet is just a bad look. You go from muscle car to slapping this name on a crossover SUV? That's an embarrassment. Dodge, you can do better.
You could do better.
