2019 Challenger R/T Grille

You’ve had your eyes on new Dodge vehicles to drive around O'Fallon, but you’re unsure of what the R/T means in some of the model descriptions. At Auffenberg CDJR, we’re here to help you understand the designation of each vehicle and help you make the best decision for you! Read our guide below to learn what Dodge R/T stands for.

Road And Track

What does Dodge R/T stand for? R/T stands for Road/Track, a designation that’s used for performance-focused models in the Dodge lineup. These vehicles are designed with advanced suspension, tires, breaks, and engines to handle high speeds and hairpin turns with efficiency in Belleville. The R/T designation premiered in the 1960s with the debut of the Dodge Coronet R/T trim. Since then, Dodge has produced almost 30 R/T vehicles with it’s most famous being the 1968 Dodge Challenger.

R/T Performance Features

Performance features will differ from one Dodge R/T model to the next, but with each you can expect performance-enhancing features that will handle any road in Smithton.

  • HEMI® Engines: Advanced horsepower and torque make these powerhouse engines a standard feature with R/T models.
  • Brembo Braking: Performance brakes that can stop your vehicle quickly without overheating.
  • Aerodynamic Design: With a sculpted body, front air induction vent, rear spoiler, and more, the R/T trim was designed to reduce drag and achieve spectacular speed.

R/T vs. SRT

While browsing the R/T Dodge models, you’ll find the SRT designation on other vehicles. SRT stands for Street and Racing Technology, and vehicles with this designation typically have a higher performance rating than R/T but come at a higher price. Popular SRT models include past Vipers as well as current Hellcats and Demons.

The R/T Dodge models offer heart-pounding performance features at an affordable price, so everyone can join in on the fun. If you’re looking for a Dodge with amazing performance capabilities, read our guide on the Dodge Charger engine options to see which engine is right for you.
