What's the best oil viscosity for high outside temperatures?

What's the best motor oil for high outdoor temperatures? I have a Camaro and I want it to run like a dream as this is the first summer I've had it.

Answer
“If you want an oil for high outdoor temperatures, you should go with one that has a viscosity of at least 30 and possibly even 40. This means that you should look for 5W30, 10W30, or 10W40, depending on what’s recommended in the owner’s manual of your Camaro.
This will help your engine run a bit better while also keeping everything under the hood lubricated. You can also look in the owner’s manual of your vehicle to see what they recommend and ask a mechanic. To help your car run smoothly year-round, be sure to follow a basic car maintenance schedule as well.
While you’re looking into the best ways to care for your vehicle across seasons, you should also consider adding roadside assistance to your car insurance policy. It’s always a good idea to have a backup plan if the worst case happens. Jerry’s partner, Urgently, pays for an Uber if you ever need a tow. They also offer lockout services, tire changes, and jump starts. You can get this peace of mind for only $50 a year.”
