The Dodge Challenger R/T (Road/Track) is a pony car produced by Dodge between 1970 and 1974. For the 1971 model year, the Challenger received a split grille and could be ordered with a 'Six Pack' 440cu V8, which was one of the most powerful engines offered alongside the 426cu HEMI V8. Its grille received another change in the following year.

Need for Speed: CarbonEdit

The Dodge Challenger R/T makes its first appearance in Need for Speed: Carbon as a tier 2 muscle car. It can be bought in any car dealership for $75,000.

It is only available in the EA Downloader version and in the Xbox 360 release as part of the Muscle Base Car Bundle DLC.

The Challenger R/T is very similar to the 1969 Dodge Charger R/T in terms of performance but is slower overall. Its heavy V8 delivers great acceleration and a good top speed for a tier 2 muscle car.

Need for Speed: ProStreetEdit

The Dodge Challenger R/T appears in Need for Speed: ProStreet as a tier 2 vehicle again. Players can purchase it for $38,000 in the car lot.

The best driving trait of the Challenger R/T is its acceleration. The overpowered drivetrain of the car makes cornering difficult due to oversteer. The Challenger is best used in Drag as it is capable of achieving low acceleration times.

Need for Speed: UndercoverEdit

The Dodge Challenger R/T appears in Need for Speed: Undercover as a tier 3 muscle with a price tag of $115,000. The Job event "Nick of Time" must be completed to unlock the car.

In Need for Speed: Undercover, the Challenger R/T is featured with a powerful acceleration again although the 1969 Charger is slightly quicker. Top speed is 199 mph (321 km/h), which is minimally better than that of the Charger R/T. The Challenger R/T also has an impressive handling. It can be easily controlled at high speeds and turn well in corners.
