Can you be a little more specific? The 2006 Model Year is only half
over. The production numbers won't be known till about September.
There are production numbers published weekly in Automotive News, by
make and model, but without having it in front of me, I can't say that
it distinguishes between trim levels like RT or SRT. I think they are
all assembled in Canada, at the Bramalea plant - but again, I'd have
to have the Automitve News data in front of me to be certain. Don't
waste your time at their website, they'll want you to pay to see many
of the articles.
Do you want to know the production numbers so far this model year? If
so, I can let you know when the next issue arrives in the mail.

It turns out that the published data does not distinguish by trim
level. For the week of 1/23 to 1/28, Chrysler built 4,187 of the
300s, and Dodge built 2,415 Chargers and 872 Magnums, all at a plant
I suppose it's possible that the dealer sales guy thinks he knows that
the R/T and/or SRT-8 will only be some portion of the total
production, but I don't think he can accurately tell you that only
6,000 of a certain trim level or color will be built between now and
the end of the model year production in August. There *might* special
trim packages available, which are limited to a specific number of
vehicles, but I haven't seen any of them for these cars.
