What engine oil to run?

I bought the wife a "10" flex last thanksgiving with 52k on it. Local trade to a dealer. Has a sticker on window for oil change at 57k.
Instrument panel flashes to change oil now at 56k.
My question.
What oil to run? Oil cap says 5w-20.
Dino or syn?

Don't really want to call dealer, they'll give me the run around.
thanks Ron

standard dino 5w-20 is more than adequate.
