Dodge’s new compact, set to debut at the North American International Auto Show will actually not be called the Hornet, according to the brand. The compact sedan is the first Chrysler Group vehicle to be engineered by Fiat.

The plan originally was for Chrysler to develop a compact sedan for the Chrysler brand as well, but for now they’ll be sticking to having a vehicle for Dodge’s portfolio only. It’s also worth mentioning that Chrysler has stopped taking orders for the Dodge Nitro and production of the vehicle will cease in about 30 days. We expect that the official name will be announced in the coming weeks.
