What does Dodge R/T stand for after all? The answer: “Dodge Road and Track,” an elite line of performance trims for Dodge’s more track-minded models. If you’re your first consideration in the journey to your next car are its horsepower and torque, read on to learn about some formidable option in the market around Waco.

Road & Track History

The R/T or Road and Track configuration was first introduced as a trim on the Dodge Coronet in 1968. Since its inception, the R/T has gone on to be included in the trim menu of 29 Dodge vehicles, the most illustrious of which is the 1968 Dodge Challenger.

SRT® vs. R/T

The R/T trims are packed with sport-tuned performance features and have higher specs than the rest of a given Dodge model’s configurations. Dodge’s other performance trim, SRT® (Street & Racing Technology), however, offers even more performance features and higher specs. Naturally, SRT® models come at a higher price, and the R/T brand is best defined as an affordable alternative in the world of performance vehicles.

  • Brembo Braking: These brakes can take abuse without overheating. They’re particularly durable and capable of enduring lightning-quick stops.
  • HEMI® Engines: These engines are a household name when it comes to horsepower, torque, and rotations.
  • Aerodynamic Design: The use of hood scoops, rear spoiler, and more, allow the R/T trim to reduce drag and achieve greater speed.
