Engine oil for 2016 GLE350?

Checking the Operator's Manual, I could see that for gas engines the MB approval is 229.5, which i found here: https://bevo.mercedes-benz.com/bevolisten/229.5_en.html

How do I understand the information on the above page? Does that mean I am free to choose among: 0W-30, 0W-40, 5W-30, 5W-40?

Pick based on your climate. 0W-40 gives you the widest range.
I have been using that forever.

i live in New Jersey, would 0w-40 be good enough for me? Also what's the engine oil filter I should use?

0W-40 or 5W40 is what I'd use for my 2016 GLE 350. The 0W or 5W is the winter rating the oil is good down to and both Mobil 1 oils for the 0W-40 and 5W-40 are 229.5 rated although the 0W-40 carries more foreign car approvals. With both the 0W-40 and 5W-40 covering the same summer range, I'm looking to use the 0W-40. At least one local dealer goes for the 5W-40 since it seems to be what they get in bulk, but we rarely see -25 degrees F, let alone -30 so it's easy to consider the wider approved 0W-40 Mobil 1.

I used to just grab a filter from the dealer, they're cheap enough.
