As with the first generation, the volume will be limited.
I keep hearing this from you and others yet once production leveled out on the WK SRT8 I could find one in stock at multiple dealerships within 100 miles of my house, most at a discount.
I believe it's really more of an internal target volume than a "limited production". They have to do this to plan out their logistics for the specialty parts (not shared with other models) that are on the SRT. It's a lot harder for them to expand production than on the regular WK2's which share 90% of their parts.
It's a delicate balance between building too many and flooding the market and building too few to fulfill the demand. Trust me, Chrysler doesn't make anything extra if the under build and the street price goes up so they have no incentive to limit supply but they certainly do not want to be left with expensive parts at the end of the production run or build vehicles none of the dealers want.
I guess what I'm saying is I'm not drinking the Kool-Aid most dealers want to give you when they attempt to extract "Over MSRP" premiums because it's a "Limited Production".
