It sure seems that way. When it was first introduced, the R/T was to get the 2.4L Tigershark. I would guess that they are adding the GT, and the R/T is going to be an even higher output to compete with some of the hot hatches out there.

GT is new R/T and R/T is new SRT and explosive super nova power explosions is new SRT? Maybe?

As noted in the existing Dart GT thread, my opinion is that the original R/T-spec car became the GT because of the Ford Focus ST.

Why change it from R/T to GT because of a Focus ST?

The original Dart was GT, that's probably why. There was never a Dart R/T

Because the ST was considered by some to be the "competition" to the R/T. Since the R/T's specs seemed to come up a bit short against the ST, they repackaged the R/T as the GT.

Or, you could be right and it's nostalgia.

Or, some supplier made them a great deal on GT badging.
