What is the 2016 Kia Sorento oil type?

I’m helping my little brother learn how to change his oil on my old Sorento I handed down to him—but I’m totally blanking on the oil type! What is it?

What a great bonding experience!
You should use 5W-20 oil in your 2016 Kia Sorento. Use synthetic oil to maintain the health of your engine and abate the need for frequent oil changes. You can also use 5W-20 conventional oil to cut down on costs, but you’ll need to change your oil more frequently—at least every 3,000 to 5,000 miles.
