Interesting. Mine's had that noise for a while, too. In fact, as long as I can remember. Especially when it's cold, but as soon as it warms up a bit it goes away. Following to see if I, too, should be worried!

This video was shot w/ engine cold. Just started it up when I did the video.
It's my wife's so I don't drive it much, I drive my '15, and don't recall ever hearing it that loud on mine.

My 2013 with 40,000 miles, does not have that ticking sound. My Grandsons 2016 with 45,000 miles, sounds like mine, without that sound.

If yours is running good, with no codes, then it sounds like camshaft lifter roller issue.

Runs fine, no check engine light, but haven't looked for codes.

I don't have codes coming up on mine. It does run great, with no check engine light. Guess I'll just let it go then!

Dont drive it like that, it doesnt sound "normal", it sounds like a failed rocker or lash adjuster.

Not good.
That might be ok just for a few seconds on a cold start, but not continuous like that.
Bad cam follower/rocker arm roller bearing.

Thanks for info guys. I found some other threads via google and they had vid clips that sounded identical. I'll be calling dealership tomorrow. Luckily I have another vehicle to drive. The Mopar Lifetime Extended Service Plan should cover repairs and then all others will all be gravy after this fix.
Please no comments about service plans. I know... I paid up front for this repair (at least in part) over time.

If I recall I want to use a dealer that is a "Customer First Award for Service" recipient correct?
Anyone from Chicago/ Joliet IL area used Tyson Motors in Shorewood IL?

Just a thought and take it for what it is but many years ago I had a Chevy S10 that made a ticking sound in cold weather until it warmed up. Turned out it was a leaky head gasket. Unfortunately my son was 16 at the time and against my wishes he drove it to school and when the head gasket failed coolant went into the crank case and wasted the bearings (coolant is very destructive).
That said, yours does sound my valve tick (then again so did the S10 so....)
I'd get it checked out. Could just need an adjustment.

There is no adjustment.
These 3.6's are known for cam follower roller bearing failure.
