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.
