block heater location on 2011

Where does the cartridge type heater element go on a 2011 with 2.7L?

I just found out that I was sold the wrong block heater. The one I have is for a V6 model. I will be going back to the dealer to exchange for the right one.

You need the freeze plug type heater. Goes on the right side of the engine in one of the freeze plugs.
