2011 Dodge R/T lineup

From minivans to muscle cars, the Dodge brand introduced an entire lineup of new R/T performance models at the 2011 Chicago Auto Show today. These include the Charger, Durango, Challenger, Grand Caravan and Journey models, all of which are now available in sporty R/T trim.

Short for Road & Track, the R/T moniker has been appearing on Dodge models since the 1960s and has traditionally meant a higher level of dynamic capability--something Dodge would like its future customers to recognize.

In addition to exterior design cues and sporty interiors, every Dodge R/T vehicle has unique handling characteristics, high performance engines, special exhaust tuning, sports-tuned suspension and performance tires with high levels of grip.

  1. Wow.
    I guess it really is possible to make Dodges look even more trailer-trashy than they already do.
    From Mercedes to Fiat, it just ain't workin'.
