Zerex G-05 by Valvoline is a HOAT that I use in my Mopar built VW Routan. I am 99.44% sure it is fully compatible with the original pink coolant. It is available at the 'Zone.
The OPs cooling system calls for OAT coolant. Mixing G-05 with OAT is a formula for disaster. G-05 is HOAT they will not mix w/o causing a problem. Even if you flush the cooling system, if there is a little of the HOAT remaining it will cause problems, in fact Chrysler has issued TSB's warning their techs about this. During the PBI prior to delivery of the vehicles, even topping off the coolant overflow tank with a small amount OAT when a vehicle called for HOAT, or vice versa causes problems. We've had this discussion prior, it ended in a locked thread my warning is valid.

Chrysler Corporation LLC. has released a new engine coolant for the 2013 model year
vehicles and beyond, for all engine applications except the ones listed in the note above.
This new coolant is an Organic Additive Technology (OAT) (
Fig. 1). OAT coolants have a
service interval of 10 years or 150,000 miles. For heavy duty truck and extreme duty cycle
applications refer to the Service Information or Owner's Manual for proper maintenance
CAUTION: Vehicle Damage may occur if dissimilar coolants are mixed!
Coolants of different technologies are not compatible nor interchangeable (OAT, HOAT or
Mixing these coolants could result in:
• accelerated corrosion within the engine and cooling systems.
• the coolant having an ammonia smell.
• debris (particles) floating in the coolant.
Further inspection by the technician may find corrosion in the system. This could show up
as aluminum pipes turning black in the coolant system, engine overheat, or leaks in the
