What is the proper antifreeze/coolant to use in the cooling system for this vehicle?
Yes, there is the dealer Mopar brand, but I am looking for something from an autoparts store for hopefully less cost. Also, not 50/50 mix, but the "concentrate."
Thanks for any experiences and suggestions.

A Napa company store should have it.

Good to hear. I had once used this same one in a 2005 Dodge Dakota pickup a number of years back.
Thanks.

For 2013 FCA Chrysler switched from G-05 HOAT to their new proprietary OAT, now purple tint. You can read about it in the links below. In second link pay particular attention to krautmaster's post and pics.

In this case, for now I'd likely go with FCA OAT AF.

https://www.mopar.com/moparsvc/tweddle/publications?id=298 <--- Download Manual Here. (Pages 544/545/546 - Search for: OAT)

You require OAT based coolant. It's a long life 150,000 mile (240,000km) coolant now. You may have earlier stuff in your system that doesn't last this long but the revised Mopar coolant now lasts the 150,000 miles. (or 10 years)

Not to be confused with HOAT. grin2

It's funny because when you pour it out of a Mopar bottle it looks Orange but in the overflow bottle it looks purple. It's really weird. I was paranoid when I first bought some. grin2
