Pennzoil Platinum 5w20 synthetic because it meets the Chrysler MS-6395 spec. I could only find a few oils that met the required spec and I just don't want to chance voiding the warranty by using non-spec oil.

Check your manual, it doesn't say you're required to use oils that meet that spec and the manual also doesn't say which revision of that spec it should meet. MS-6395 came about in 2005, I think you'd be pretty hard pressed to find a 5w20 or 5w30 oil that didn't meet or exceed that "old" spec.

The manual says that Chrysler recommends...not requires...so don't worry about your warranty. Stick with an API certified oil in the correct viscosity and call it a day, your warranty won't go anywhere.

I will keep this duty for my dealer
I am afraid they will void the warranty if I go somewhere else

I know the rt takes 7 qts, is it exactly 7, or typically less? I ask because my last car took 6 but would be overfull by 5.5.

Well, MY manual (page 455) says: "Use API Certified SAE 5W-20 Engine Oil, meeting the requirements of Chrysler Material Standard MS-6395." So that's what I'll use and will only use oil that states specifically that it meets that standard, regardless of when the standard was issued.
