Question What does "R/T" stand for???

I have never been able to figure out what R/T stands for. I always thought it meant Road and Track, but since there is a R/T w/ R&T, that rules out it standing for that. Anyone wanna fill me in as to what R/T stands for??

And then there is SXT......

Personally I don't even think anybody at DCX really knows what is going on with the R/T trim level and the separate R/T package. R/T isn't really significant any more... it's just a pair of letters to denote a trim level and then a separate set of options. Whatever coolness used to be intrinsically linked to the letters R and T was lost when they went nuts with the badge.

Now it is often shown as RT instead of R/T. The R/T performance group further complicates things because it's just a bundle of options for the R/T trim Chargers... the R/T options group is not intended to mean something separate from the R/T trim.

But yeah, the R/T trim used to mean Road and Track... and that's what the R/T options package for the R/Ts is supposed to mean now. There's a R/T package for R/T trim level Magnums too - so it's not a unique Charger thing.

But then if you get a R/T Magnum without the R/T options package the badge on the back just reads RT. Talk about lamers.

The reason I say this is that the R/T badge has been abused since the late 90s is that there used to be R/T Dakotas and Stratuses. They also blew up their TSi moniker with TSi Grand Cherokees... Dodge has abused and misused their happy trim letters to no end... so in my opinion there's no significance anymore.

^^ Yeah, but your Starion/Conquest is a true TSi. A ghetto Grand Cherokee with little bumps on the hood with a TSi badge is just super-lame. I don't think you can say a TSi SUV is the same significance as your TSi bad-ass car.
