Road and Track History

What does Dodge R/T stand for? Road and Track is a high-performance trim level that Baytown shoppers can find across the Dodge lineup. The R/T configuration first launched in 1967 with the release of the Dodge Coronet. Since the 1967 debut, Dodge has gone on to make 29 Road and Track and SRT (Street and Racing Technology) trim levels, the most famous being the iconic 1968 Dodge Challenger. 

SRT vs. R/T

R/T configurations offer more performance features than any other standard trim you’ll find on our lot. The SRT is a step up from the R/T. However, the SRT trim is a bit pricier, so if you’re looking for speed at an affordable price, then the R/T is the performance trim for you. 

Vehicles With R/T Trims

You will find an R/T trim level available with the following models: 

  • Dodge Challenger
  • Dodge Charger
  • Dodge Durango 

Performance Features of the R/T

Performance features available with the R/T trim level differ by model, but some of the features you can expect are as follows:

  • Brembo Braking: Brake quickly without your car overheating with Brembo brakes. HEMI® Engines: High torque and horsepower capability is a trademark of the R/T trim.
  • Aerodynamic Design: Using hood scoops, rear spoiler allows, and more, the R/T trim reduces drag and achieves greater speed.
