What Does Dodge RT Stand For?

Black Dodge Charger RT on a track

R/T stands for Road/Track. The RT trim is offered on many popular Dodge vehicles and provides superior performance than a standard trim at an affordable price. We have plenty of new vehicles for sale available with RT trims.

Vehicles with RT trims:

  • Dodge Challenger
  • Dodge Charger
  • Dodge Durango


Road and Track History

The Road and Track (RT) trim first appeared in 1967 with the release of the Dodge Coronet. Since then, Dodge has released 29 subsequent vehicles that offer the R/T trim, the most famous of which was the 1968 Dodge Challenger.

SRT® vs. R/T

SRT® (standard street technology) typically offers more than the RT in terms of features and performance. However, the SRT® comes with a steeper price tag than the RT. The road and track trim offer better performance metrics than any standard trim at Dodge at an affordable price, making it the ideal choice for Valparaiso buyers on a budget.

Road and Track Performance Features

The performance features included on the RT trim can vary depending on the model, but the standard features Portage drivers can expect are as follows:

  • Brembo Braking: These brakes allow for quick stops without overheating.
  • HEMI® Engine: This engine maximizes horsepower and torque capability, making it a staple on all RT vehicles.
  • Aerodynamic Design: The use of hood scoops and a rear spoiler reduces drag so drivers can enjoy higher speed on Michigan City roads.
