What Does Dodge R/T Stand For?

2019 Dodge Challenger RT

Perhaps you’ve seen Dodge vehicles that have R/T bolstered to its name, but you’re unsure what that actually means for the car. Thankfully, our specialists here at Nyle Maxwell Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram are happy to help you discover what the R/T stands for, and t how it can enhance your driving experience in Round Rock and Cedar Park.

Road and Track History

To put it simply, R/T is a shortened way of saying Road/Track and designates the high-performance level trims of many Dodge vehicles. This popular Dodge configuration was originally unveiled alongside the release of the Dodge Coronet in 1967. Fast-forward to today, and Dodge has produced nearly 30 vehicles with the R/T trim, with the Dodge Challenger being its most famous R/T-enhanced car.

R/T vs. SRT

Now that you know what the R/T is, we should also talk about the SRT configuration across the Dodge lineup. While we already know that R/T trims of Dodge vehicles offer a boost in specs when compared to a vehicle’s standard trim, SRT (which stands for Street & Racing Technology) upgrades offer even better performance numbers. This extra boost in functionality for SRT-enhanced trims also means these trims cost more, so R/T trims can be a more affordable option for buyers still looking for enhanced performance from their Dodge car.

Performance Features of R/T Models
