Green Hornet

China to get Dodge Compact Ute

Looking like a juiced-up cousin of the xB, Dodge’s Hornet has been tapped for overseas production by Chinese automaker Chery. The concept, which first debuted at the 2006 Geneva Auto show sports a 170Hp 4-cylinder supercharged engine, which buzzes it from 0-60 in about 6.7 seconds. Plans for a US launch are not known- but with Chrysler on the go from its Cerberus takeover, there just might be a chance.
