What is the 2017 Toyota Tacoma oil type?

I have a 2017 Toyota Tacoma that I just bought. The owner gave me a deal because he said it’s out of warranty and can’t remember the last time he changed the oil. I’m going to change the oil before things get out of hand. What’s the oil type for the 2017 Toyota Tacoma?

Whether you have the 2.7-liter engine or the 3.5-liter engine, you’re going to need 6.1 quarts of motor oil to execute a proper oil job.
