2013 Challenger motor oil fill port

I have a 2013 Thor Challenger with a Ford V10 power plant. I am unable to locate the motor oil fill cap. Does anyone know where its located and how to access it?

When you open the front engine access panel, on the passenger side just above the Radiator, you will see a yellow transmission dip stick. To the right and slightly above will be a pipe with a cap. This is the motor oil fill.

When most folks look into an engine compartment you expect to look down to see the where the oil goes. Not of the F53 chassis!

It's way up there! Look up and to the left when you open the engine access panel. Just barely a few inches from the flooring panel/plate.

You will find that in order to fill with oil, it must defy gravity!

You haven't opened the hood of an F-250/F-350 4x4! Need a ladder just to get up there.

Yes I have.

Once you get UP the ladder, you still look down to see the dipstick tube on a F-250/F-350!

Here is a pic of the passenger's side engine compartment on my challenger. The oil fill tube is to the left of the trans stick.

A closer shot of the trans stick and engine oil fill tube. On the challenger they are below the dash.
