Sxt, r/t, srt???

Dumb question, but what does SXT stand for?
What does R/T stand for?
What does SRT stand for?

I love my daily driver Challenger, but for the life of me what do these acronyms stand for? I know I'm old and this is only my 2nd Mopar. Thanks ahead of time for helping my old brain.

I wouldn't wait until retirement to get the SRT. Get it now. You sound like a friend of mine who says that he's going to buy a Mustang when he retires in the next 11 years. Yeah right. Like his wife will let him buy a Mustang. She's the one wearing the pants in the house. Not my friend.

I only have about 3 yrs before i retire and maybe sooner. I'm hoping the rumor of a 426 will come. If it does it will be right on time.

Since you will be buying an SRT, I thought that you might like to read about its history.

Performance vehicles are a Chrysler tradition. In the 1950s, an elite team of Chrysler engineers set out to extract extreme horsepower from existing engines. The team created new manifolds featuring long-tube intake runners. The innovative design helped engines ingest more air, translating into improved performance. The new induction system was called “Ramcharger,” and the team behind the technology adopted that name. The Ramchargers’ new engine produced enormous amounts of power, leading to success on the drag strip during the 1960s and 1970s.

Fast forward to the 1989 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, where Dodge amazed crowds with its sleek Viper concept. The project, initiated by then-company president Bob Lutz and Carroll Shelby, was described as the successor to the AC Cobra. Planned by Tom Gale (father of Jeff Gale, the lead exterior designer of the 2008 Challenger SRT), its simplistic yet muscular shape paired with a killer 8.0-liter V-10, thrust the Viper into the spotlight. People raved about the Viper and it was approved for production a few weeks later. With the dawn of the V-10 powered supercar, emerged a group of devoted engineers. Team Viper worked to hone the supercar’s performance for street and racing. This would lead to endurance race victories in the late 1990s.

Meanwhile, a separate, dedicated team, “Team Prowler,” completed work on the 1993 Plymouth Prowler concept car. When the first Prowler rolled off the assembly line, four years later, Chrysler integrated the two specialty groups in a single entity- Special Vehicle Engineering. At last, Chrysler’s elite teams were working together under a single roof to create eye-catching niche vehicles.

In 2002, Chrysler made an announcement that would forever change the enthusiast landscape. Lead engineer, John Fernandez and Viper guru, Herb Helbig, took to the auto stage to announce the creation of Performance Vehicle Operations (PVO). The newly formed group leveraged existing resources to improve Chrysler’s high performance focus. PVO celebrated by unveiling the Viper-powered Dodge Ram SRT10, flanked by the Dodge Neon SRT4 and Viper SRT10.

Since all PVO vehicles wore the SRT badge, the PVO development team was renamed SRT in 2004. All PVO creations wore the Street and Racing Technology badge (see photos, below).

In 2012 Chrysler implemented a plan to turn SRT into a separate brand under the Chrysler Group umbrella. During the 2013 and 2014 model years, the Dodge Viper was sold under the model name SRT Viper. This proved unsuccessful and, in May 2014, the SRT brand was re-consolidated under Dodge, with former SRT CEO Ralph Gilles continuing as senior vice president of product design and also as the CEO and president of Motorsports.

Since 2004, many Chrysler performance models have worn the SRT badge. They include the Chrysler 300 (SRT8), Charger (SRT8), Challenger (SRT8), Caliber (SRT6), Neon (SRT4), Grand Cherokee (SRT8) and Viper (SRT10). As the years have past, the horsepower has grown immensely, from 425 hp. with the 6.1 Hemi., to 485 hp. with the 392, to 707 hp. with the SC 6.2 Hellcat, to 797 hp. with the SC 6.2 Hellcat Redeye and finally to 808 hp. with the SC 6.2 Demon. What an accomplishment for the SRT team!

"SE" actually meant Special Edition.
