February 9, 2011 , Chicago –
From minivans to muscle cars, the Dodge brand introduced an entire lineup of new R/T performance models at the Chicago Auto Show today.
Whether it’s a Charger, Challenger, Journey, Durango or the Grand Caravan, Dodge now offers R/T models that deliver power, performance and modern technology that combine to create the heart and soul of each vehicle.
“We have customers who love cars, who love the thrill of driving, but can only afford one car,” said Ralph Gilles, President and CEO, Dodge Brand — Chrysler Group LLC. “Our Dodge R/T models give buyers the chance to stoke their love of driving while still taking care of their families and responsibilities. Driving these R/T models will absolutely leave a smile on their face.”
The Road & Track name has been the performance moniker for Dodge since the muscle car era of the 1960’s, and the brand is delving into its rich heritage to pave the way for the future.
“We’re going back to our roots, when Dodge R/T meant a higher level of dynamic capability,” Gilles added. “In addition to exterior design cues and sporty interiors, every Dodge R/T vehicle will have unique handling characteristics, high-tech, high-performing engines, special exhaust tuning, a sport-tuned suspension and performance tires that grip the road. These Dodge R/Ts have definitely earned their stripes.”
