The 1969 Dodge Charger R/T (Road and Track) was a sports model of the second generation B-body Dodge Charger. It came standard with a 440cu (7.2L) V8 although there was also an option for a 426cu (7.0L) V8.

Other standard features of the B-body Charger were two exhaust pipes, sport brakes and suspension as well as the bumblebee stripe on the rear fenders.

The Dodge Charger R/T made an appearance in the television series The Dukes of Hazzard,  nicknamed "The General Lee."

Need for Speed: Underground RivalsEdit

The Dodge Charger R/T first appeared in Need for Speed: Underground Rivals with a $44,000 price tag. It is focused on acceleration at the cost of handling.

A Boss version entitled - "Tank" - can be unlocked if the player races against it in a Cup level boss race using a Japanese car.

Need for Speed: CarbonEdit

The Charger R/T appears in Need for Speed: Carbon as a Tier 2 Muscle car and is also driven by 21st Street Crew boss Angie. Upon defeating her in her first Canyon Duel, the Charger R/T will be purchaseable for $80,000. Angie's car can be obtained in a boss reward card.

The strong point of the Dodge Charger R/T is its acceleration, which is superior to other Tier 2 cars. The handling is somewhat controllable but also heavily influenced by fishtailling in corners. It can be competitive in every Tier 2 race. Thanks to its high kerb weight, the Charger is also effective in pursuits.

Need for Speed: ProStreetEdit

The Charger R/T appears in Need for Speed: ProStreet as a Tier 2 vehicle with a $30,000 price tag.

It boasts powerful acceleration and excels at performing burnouts due to being capable of achieving maximum grip even when being unmodified. Because of a high kerb weight, it feels sluggish to drive around corners. The Charger R/T is best utilised in Drag mode although when fully upgraded, it becomes prone to performing wheelies, if given too much grip during a burnout.

Need for Speed: UndercoverEdit

The Charger R/T appears in Need for Speed: Undercover as a Tier 3 vehicle with a price tag of $89,000. It is unlocked upon reaching Wheelman Level 9.5.

It is one of the quickest accelerating Tier 3 vehicles in the game - alongside the Chevrolet Chevelle SS. It reaches a top speed of 198 mph (319 km/h).

Shift SeriesEdit

The Charger R/T appears in the Team Racing Pack DLC for Need for Speed: Shift. It is a Tier 2 vehicle with a car rating of 5.10.

The Charger R/T appears in Shift 2: Unleashed as a Retro Road vehicle with a $41,000 price tag. It has a C 520 performance rating and a 3.15 handling rating. Its top speed and braking time from 60-0 mph are identical to the Challenger R/T's.

Quick acceleration and a decent top speed allow the Charger R/T to have good straight-line performance. However, it can easily spin out in corners as a consequence of its high weight.

Need for Speed: NitroEdit

The Dodge Charger R/T appears in Need for Speed: Nitro as a Class B car and costs $35,000.The Brazilian top racer Thiago drives this vehicle during the class B cup. The player can use their car after earning every star in Rio de Janeiro races.

Need for Speed: WorldEdit

The Dodge Charger R/T was made available in Need for Speed: World on July 27th, 2010 as a Tier 1 car. Since August 22nd, 2012, it has been featured as an E Class vehicle.

The standard Charger R/T has a 188 overall rating and is currently retired from the car dealer.

In contrast to previous title appearances, the Charger R/T has poor acceleration coupled with stiff handling, causing the vehicle to understeer in corners and preventing it from compensating its cornering capabilities. It has a slightly stronger nitrous boost than the 1971 Dodge Challenger R/T at the expense of a lower top speed of 119 mph (195 km/h).
