Dodge R/T Meaning and Explanation

What does Dodge RT stand for? Performance car experts use the term “R/T” a lot, but few who don’t spend a lot of time in garages really know what it means. Tri State Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM can walk you through what R/T stands for as you look at cars like the new Dodge Challenger or a new Durango, and discuss its meaning for St Joseph drivers. Love the roar of an engine? You’ll love your new R/T vehicle.

Road and Track History

R/T stands for Road/Track, or road and track, indicating a performance-level trim available across much of the Dodge lineup. The Dodge Coronet R/T configuration was the first of its kind, making its debut in 1967. Since then, Dodge has produced 29 R/T vehicles, with the 1968 Dodge Challenger being the most famous.

SRT vs. R/T

R/T trims offer better performance features and specs than any other standard trim. Yet SRT (Street & Racing Technology) trims generally offer even more in terms of performance. The downside to SRT models is the cost, which makes R/T perfect for those seeking powerful performance at an affordable price. 

Vehicles With R/T Trims

If you are looking for an R/T model, you have plenty of options to choose from with the trim available on the: 

  • Dodge Challenger
  • Dodge Charger
  • Dodge Durango 

Performance Features of the R/T

Performance specs on R/T models differ between vehicles, but each is guaranteed to boost your driving experience. You can generally expect to find these features in an R/T model: 

  • Brembo Braking: These brakes allow for quick stops without overheating.
  • HEMI® Engines: With the iconic horsepower and torque reached by these burly engines, it is no surprise that they are an R/T staple. 
  • Aerodynamic Design: The use of hood scoops, a rear spoiler, and more allow the R/T trim to reduce drag and achieve greater speed.
