All signs seem to point to "yes" on the factory supercharger front. 
Every single Magnum Wagon concept vehicle has had a supercharger - and
usually when Dodge makes a concept like that, you end up being able to
buy it on the streets like that.  One of Dodge's marketing VP's has said

Look for it in 2004 according to Car and Driver, for the rear wheel

I'm with you there.  That's one of the reasons I became a

be a cold day in hell before Ford or Chevy get another dollar of my
money.  Dodge at least tries to appeal to the performance crowd, even if
the results are somewhat painful to look at...
