If you look straight across underneath vehicle from drivers side door. There's a square box shape that is approximately 8" by 8", appears to be where leak is coming from or fluid is just settling and dripping from there. Looks to be dark red in color... Doesn't smell like burnt oil

If it is under the Hood Latch behind the Grill, that would be the Transmission Cooler
If it is near the engine, then that would be the Power Steering Pump / Reservoir

Straight across underneath vehicle across from back of wheel well/ front of drivers side door. Oil filter is right next to it... Thanks. Chris

not seeing what you describe, but that does not mean there could not be a part there that may be needing attention & / or tightening to keep the fluid from leaking
If you could post a picture or have a look at it to see if any bolts can be tightened
