Underbody Lower Engine Shield?

I just bought my 2018 Kicks last week. While washing the car, I noticed there is NOT a underbody shield, leaving the oil pan, and other engine/transmission components exposed in the bottom. Is the kicks suppose to come with a lower engine shield cover?

I will check mine when i get home, but i dont believe they have these. Another way they were able to keep the cost down.

No engine cover top or bottom as standard.
There are after market ones from eBay and aliexpress.
I've been having issues with cold weather affecting gear-change and freezing the engine breather system , starts out ok then asyou drive and the cold air hits the oil pan and cools it down the revs to speed relation gets all messed up.
Think having a shield top and bottom will shield the air flow.

Haha, I just saw this when I posted a question on whether or not it came with a top engine cover. The bottom one seems to be more functional to keep dirt, snow, and salt away in the winter, but don't really see a purpose for the top one. Also much easier when changing your own oil, though I don't plan on doing it myself during the warranty period so records are kept in the owner's portal.
