Wire for Installing new elec Range

I have rewired everything in our house and in the kitchen we relocated the elec range. Purchase a GE Range and will use a 4 prong outlet. I am wondering which is the correct gauge wire I should use. I can't find anything on the installation instructions.
I was assuming that maybe 6 ga. is correct but need to be sure.

Thanks.

6-gauge is correct. Some ranges can use 8-gauge, but 6-gauge should handle all residential ranges.
