What Does Dodge R/T Stand For?

2021 Dodge Challenger R/T

 

Many performance car enthusiasts have tossed the term R/T around, but many drivers don’t know what Dodge R/T means. R/T stands for Road/Track (Road and Track), and we have your details about what it means for you. This is one vehicle worthy of a test drive on the Miami roads! Don’t hesitate to contact Planet Dodge Chrysler Jeep RAM if you have any questions.

Dodge Road and Track History

As mentioned above, Dodge R/T stands for Road/Track (Road and Track) and defines the performance level trim you’ll find across the Dodge lineup. This configuration made its debut in 1967 with the release of the Dodge Coronet R/T trim level. Since that release, the automotive brand went on to produce 29 Road and Track vehicles, the most famous being the 1968 Dodge Challenger R/T.

Dodge R/T vs. SRT: What’s the Difference?

When comparing the two, you’ll notice that the Road and Track trims offer stronger performance features and specs than any other standard trim level will offer. However, the SRT (Street and Racing Technology) offers more when it comes to performance. The downside of the SRT configuration is that it can cost much more than the R/T, which makes the latter a better option if you’re seeking a powerful vehicle without exceeding your budget.

If you are looking for an R/T model, there are lots of options to choose from in the Dodge lineup: 

What Are the Performance Features of the Dodge R/T?

Performance features will vary from model to model, yet each one does boost performance-enhancing features. Let’s explore the track-inspired trim you’ll most likely find:

  • Brembo Braking: These brakes allow for quick stops without overheating.
  • Aerodynamic Design: The use of hood scoops, rear spoiler, and more, lets the R/T model reduce drag and achieve greater speed.
  • HEMI® Engines: This iconic horsepower and torque are reached by these burly engines, and it’s no surprise that they are an R/T staple. 

These exciting performance features allow drivers to cruise down Hialeah roads with confidence!
