Road and Track History

R/T stands for Road/Track and indicates a performance level trim you can find across new Dodge vehicles for sale. The R/T configuration first appeared in 1967 when the Dodge Coronet R/T trim was released. Since then, Dodge has produced 29 different R/T vehicles, the most famous of which was the 1968 Dodge Challenger.
