GM Engine Oil Recommendation

Time for an oil change. What is the GM recommended fluid? Mobile 1 with the Dexos 1 specification and are all Mobil 1 synthetics made to this specification or do I need to find a specific blend? The manual does not specify.

Thanks,
Max

P.S. Do not use Carl Black in Orlando. No one could answer this simple question and were extremely unprofessional, not greeting me etc.

I'll be doing Mobil 1 dexors when I do my first oil change in about 600 more miles.
Doing the first change at 1500 miles.
No blends here and have always used Mobile 1 ..plus Walmart sells 5 quart jugs of it for 25 bucks, can't beat it!!!!

Pennzoil Platinum Full Synthetic is a great oil and getting lots of positive test results from used oil testing.
