Dodge R/T Meaning and Explanation

Our team is here to help you understand what R/T stands for and what Dodge R/T models can do to improve your drives around San Leandro. Learn more about the thrilling performance of Dodge R/T models with help from McKevitt Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram!

Road and Track History

R/T stands for Road/Track, and represents advanced upgrades inside and out. The R/T badge was first used in 1967 on the Dodge Coronet R/T trim. Since that initial release Dodge has gone on to produce 29 R/T vehicles, including the legendary 1968 Dodge Challenger R/T. Much like the name implies, R/T models include improvements inside and out that make for improved dynamics on the track, and more comfort on the streets around Walnut Creek and Fremont.

SRT vs. R/T

While R/T trim levels offer significant improvements from base models, those who want the ultimate in performance might prefer SRT models. SRT (Street & Racing Technology) trims generally offer more in terms of performance features and power. However, SRT configurations tend to cost significantly more than R/T models, which often makes R/T models a better value.
