Oil plug torque?

What should be the torque on the engine oil drain plug (2014 V6)? I usually just do it by feel but the bolt seems to be very soft. I'm seeing 20ft/lb. Is that correct?

There is a bigger story here which involves, dealer, free oil changes and incompotent people (probably high school kids doing those changes) and one stripped bolt. Long story short ... Going forward planning to do my own oil changes even if they are free at the dealership.

Re: Oil plug torque?

25 lb ft is typical for the rubber O ring plug.
If you are going to be doing them yourself, consider either the Fumoto or Stahlbus drain valves. I've been using the Fumoto on various vehicles for years. Fumoto USA | Quick and Easy Engine Oil Drain Valves
Also, I wouldn't put too much faith in WK2Jeeps. I have found a lot of misinformation there.
