Estimated total SRT8 production for calendar year 2005:

8,300!!


What a year it was for SRT8 production! It all started with the 2005 300C SRT model which started production in February 2005, followed in April by the 2006 300C SRT8 models. Magnum production was next, commencing in May while the Charger edition started rolling off the lines in September. Last but not least, the Grand Cherokee SRT8 production startup was in mid November.

The very first SRT8 pilot models were model year 2005 versions of the 300C which were built way back in June of 2004. Counting those and a few other pilot models, a total of only 263 were built for model year 2005 including 220 units for the U.S. market and 43 for Canada.

The 300C version has been, and will probably continue to be, the most popular of the SRT8 models released so far. In just a couple weeks production will have surpassed 5,000 units with an estimated final production run of as high as 8,500 units. Final estimates for the other models are listed below and could end up being higher or lower than what I have come up with. It's impossible to predict the exact totals as several factors may come into play, including market conditions and demand. It's also possible that final totals have already been locked in although this has never been confirmed. The totals may also be limited by the maximum number of 6.1L engines that can be produced over the course of the year.

European production of SRT8 models will start this spring and summer and will be produced in very limited quantities. The SRT8 will also be available in other export markets this year, all built at the Austrian plant.

DaimlerChrysler has not, and will not release any SRT production totals until after a model year is completed, and even then the information may not be available. The totals below have been accumulated from various sources over the year including online auctions, new vehicle sites, inventory listings from dealer sites and from owners who have submitted information. More detailed production information can be found at the links listed below.


Breakdown by SRT8 model for calendar year 2005:

Model ....... Documented 2005 Totals .... Estimated 2005 Totals

300C .................... 4590 ................................. 4800
Magnum ................ 1200 ................................. 1500
Charger.................. 1325 ................................. 1500
Grand Cherokee ....... 0390 ................................. 0500

Grand Totals......... 7,505 ................................ 8,300


*Predicted SRT8 totals at the end of the 2006 model year:

300C ...................... 7500-8500
Magnum .................. 2000-2500
Charger.................... 4000-5000
Grand Cherokee ........ 4000-5000

Grand Totals......... 17,500 - 21,000

*Does not include export models. These totals are pure speculation, based on, among other criteria, production numbers tallied so far and projected out for the rest of the model year. The numbers for the 300C SRT's include the 263 units produced for model year 2005.

RS,

Always interested in your compilations. Still no 300C SRT8's in VT? Think I'll have to take a road trip and give 'em a thrill :banana:

Happy New Year,

Rick
