the 0w20 and 5w20 will have the same characteristics at temp, but the 0w20 is better for colder weather like hands down.

Yup; Castrol doesn't furnish much info on it.

See the Amazon page: "Meets Chrysler MS 6395, Ford WSS-M2C153-H, Ford WSS-M2C930-A, Ford WSS-M2C945-A"

Re: Which Full Synthetics meet the Chrysler Spec for the V6 (2014)?

First, pick your brand in the correct weight. Then check their website to make sure it "meets" Chrysler's spec (as posted in your manual). Watch out for terms like "exceeds". "Exceeds" doesn't necessarily mean they "meet" Chrysler's spec. It means they think they are better.
