2009 G6 GT Camshaft Position Sensor Replacement

I've been trying to locate the camshaft position sensor on my 2009 Pontiac G6 GT 3.5L. I ordered the part on Advance Auto Part's website. The part they said that goes with my car is

I've done research online and found a sensor in a difficult spot behind and closer to the bottom of the engine. This sensor looks more like this

I'm confused because my VIN (1G2ZH57N294113876) - specifies that I have a 3.5L V6 engine and the first image should be the correct part. But I've spent hours trying to find the sensor and every sensor I find seems to not fit the electrical connector part and the second image seems to be for a 2.4L engine. Please HELP!
