What Does R/T Mean?
When hearing people talk about performance vehicles, you may hear the term R/T thrown around. If you have been wondering what it means, then you are in the right spot. Here we will discuss what it means, the history of it, and what makes R/T vehicles stand out from the rest.
R/T stands for Road/Track and can be found on model configurations across the Dodge lineup. If you are looking for increased performance on the Del Rio roads an R/T model may be for you.
The history of the R/T trim dated back to 1967 with the release of the Dodge Cornet R/T trim. Since then Dodge has released 29 R/T vehicles, including the legendary 1968 Dodge Challenger–which still sports the R/T name on trims levels today.
R/T trims offer improved performance specs and enhanced features missing on standard trims. They do come with less power than an SRT trim, which is another popular performance trim found on the Dodge lineup. In return, R/T models come with a lower price tag so they can be a great place to start if you are looking for a performance model on a budget.
