Oil Filters 2017

I have a 2017, 3.6. In looking for oil filters they have 2 categories, VIN N & VIN 3 . Then the oil filter for both VIN's is the same.

What am I missing?

Some computer systems look for the engine code when a search is done using the vehicle VIN. Some engines with the same displacement but different applications may use different filters (think size or length of filter in a tight space).

What are you using to look up the oil filter application?

I used the automated system when I was in WallyWorld. Then I looked it up on the Wixx website.
