Oil for 2020 Camaro V6

What is the best year around oil to use in a 2020 Camaro with V6 engine? How often do you change it (miles or time) ? Thanks

It probably says 5w30 full syn in the owners manual. I normally get about 4k out of an oil change. I use the oil tracker and change it when it gets down to 10% life.

Use the oil grade recommended in your owners manual and you will be good to go!��

Being under warranty I'd stick with the factory specs. I still do on mine as well

Mobil 1 5w-30 Full Synth w/ dexos2

The manual calls for an oil change every 7,000 miles, but you might want to do it every 5,000 miles if you drive like a complete jackass or track the car.

5w30 Mobil 1 Full Synthetic....is the way to go...you'll notice difference right away...i always change my oil frequently anyway but you can go 6k-7k with this oil...but regardless, that is what I do.
