What vehicle(s) do you drive?

Hello, I have a 2017 XT5 3.6L and I want to put some super top notch oil in the engine as I am not planning to go to the dealership for their services anymore. I want to keep the vehicle and engine running in tip top shape.
I am thinking about this:
https://www.searchforparts.com/oil-change/cadillac-2017-xt5-3.6l-s

I like the fact that all products are there on the page and no guessing game with the filter either. I plan to change it myself.

or maybe this as reading up on it, it seems rock solid!!!

or maybe you can suggest something, thank you in advance!

Cadillac recommended is I think 0W30 or 0W40 Mobil 1. Nothing wrong with that. BUT CHECK THE OIL EVERY 1000 miles!!! These engines leak and burn oil. Syn oil DOES NOT SMOKE. Timing chains go bad because of user neglect. And yes I said CHAINS. It has three. And that is a 5000 dollar job. If your car has 70 to 100 thousand miles and you bought it used, SELL!
