Does anybody know if the oil capacity has changed with the oil pan change from the large aluminum to the smaller steel one?

Was there anything different for the aluminum pan shown? I have no manuals, floor mats, and jack base with mine. Dealer says there is a shortage LOL!

The 392 Owners Manual Supplement original edition (6/2020) lists 6.7 qts.
The current version that came with my 10/31/21 delivery (with the steel pan) lists 7.0 qts

The current online 392 supplement says 7.5 quarts. I especially like the part about the oil filter when it says "We recommend you use Mopar Engine Oil Filter or equivalent" without listing a part number.

Looks like any of them would work.

Thank you for that! I had written in my maintenance notes 7.5 qts, but couldn't determine where I'd seen it.
The online supplement is likely more current than my October production 392 which lists 7.0 qts. It looks like the 392 already has three different capacities listed - wonder if there are actually two different steel oil pans being used? I guess the next oil change will tell me the right answer for my VIN....

I was able to find a different online supplement that said 7.0 quarts. The one on the Mopar website right now says 7.5 quarts but it also says that driving in dry conditions in 4Hi Auto can cause damage.

They need to get it together.
