Dodge enthusiasts in Salmon Arm are likely to have heard the acronyms RT and SRT before, but many may not know what they stand for. We at Braby Motors are here to shed some light on what these acronyms mean for you and your vehicle.
RT stands for Road and Track, a badge that Dodge gives to cars that are designed for both street driving and racing on the track. You’ll find this badge on special edition cars such as the Challenger Drag Pak and the Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye, as well as regular vehicles that have been fitted with performance parts for racing.
These performance models usually have a bigger engine than regular Dodge cars and are built with wider tires, which allow them to hold the ground better when cornering at high speeds. They also have more braking power, making them able to stop much faster than regular models.
Moreover, RT models are lighter than their non-RT counterparts, which makes them faster when racing on the track. This is because the car is made from lighter materials, which decreases its overall weight and enhances its acceleration and handling abilities.
If you’re in the market for a new racecar, we recommend checking out the RT model at your nearest Dodge dealer. They are the perfect combination of standard Dodge amenities and just enough SRT sauce to transform your Mission commute from a chore into an adventure.
