What Does Dodge SRT Mean?

2021 Dodge Challenger


Have you come across the acronym SRT when searching for a new Dodge vehicle in the Dunlap area but you don’t know what it means? You’re not alone! Plenty of drivers come to us asking “What does Dodge SRT mean?” and wondering how it differs from other Dodge vehicles. So, what does SRT stand for? It’s an acronym for “Street and Racing Technology” and was originally a standalone division of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Dodge’s parent company that also owns U.S. and international brands like Chrysler, Jeep, Fiat, Maserati, and Peugeot (today under the company name Stellantis).

SRT’s mission was originally focused on building a vehicle called the Dodge Viper, but it expanded to producing other top-performance vehicles for Dodge, Jeep, and Chrysler. Today, the SRT name is owned entirely by Dodge, producing powerhouse vehicles like the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and Dodge Challenger SRT Demon (we’ve got more vehicles listed below). Dodge SRT vehicles represent the very best that the Dodge brand has to offer in terms of pure muscle-car performance. The team at Sam Leman Chrysler Jeep Dodge of Peoria has everything you need to know about the SRT meaning, lineup, and benefits in the guide below!

Current Dodge SRT Vehicles

The most common question we get after “What does SRT mean?” and “What does SRT stand for?” is “What SRT vehicles are around today?” Although many vehicles of different brands have borne the SRT name over the decades, today they’re all Dodge exclusives. The current lineup includes:

  • Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye
  • Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock
  • Dodge Charger SRT

Benefits of Dodge SRT Vehicles

Each Dodge SRT model has its own unique set of features and amenities, but all vehicles share the same performance-minded benefits:

  • HEMI Engines: The Dodge SRT meaning is synonymous with top-notch performance power. Every Dodge SRT vehicle is powered by a supercharged HEMI V8 engine, producing powerhouse numbers ranging from 475 horsepower on the Dodge Durango all the way to 807 horsepower on the Challenger SRT Super Stock. 
  • Brembo Braking: You’ll enjoy serious braking power on the Peoria roads no matter the SRT vehicle you choose, thanks to high-performing Brembo calipers and slotted brakes.
