What Does Dodge R/T Stand for?

2019 Dodge Charger SRT

Performance vehicle enthusiasts toss around the term “R/T” pretty casually, but newcomers to the performance vehicle segment might not know what it means. Fortunately, Allen Samuels Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram is here to lay out the definition and history of Dodge R/T vehicles for you! We’ll start with this: When you drive an R/T vehicle in Nickerson, you’ll finally understand what it really means to experience unbridled performance.

Road and Track History

R/T stands for Road/Track, and it identifies a certain performance level you can find throughout the Dodge lineup. The R/T configuration debuted in 1967 with the Dodge Coronet R/T. Since then, Dodge has produced 29 R/T vehicles, the most famous one being the 1968 Dodge Challenger.

SRT vs. R/T

When you choose an R/T vehicle, you’ll enjoy heightened performance specs and features compared to standard trims. You may have heard that SRT (Street & Racing Technology) trims have more to offer when it comes to performance, and while this is typically true, the downside of SRT configurations is their costlier price tag. If you’re looking for exceptional performance on a budget, the R/T trim is an excellent choice.

Vehicles With R/T Trims

R/T Performance Features

Performance features on R/T models will vary depending on which model you choose. Generally speaking, when you’re considering one of these track-ready vehicles for Buhler drives, you can expect to find the following highlights:

  • Brembo Braking: Stop at a moment’s notice without the risk of overheating.
  • Aerodynamic Design: Rear spoilers, hood scoops, and more make it so that R/T vehicles can offer reduced drag and higher speeds.
  • HEMI® Engines: Only a HEMI® engine could support the iconic torque and horsepower achieved by R/T vehicles.
