Maybe oil or anti-freeze is dripping onto the exhaust system.

yes, you have a small leak, check the radiator too.

My 2014 smelled funny when I brought it home from the body shop (hit a large deer). Kind of a hot smell. Everything was normal with mine also. Starting to wonder when they washed it if they sprayed something on the engine or exhaust. Mine has 22,000 miles and the 5.7. Will report back if I find something tomorrow.

Like BBQ?

No, like hot engine or dripping coolant.

Was the radiator damaged? Deer can really mess a truck up.
