They say that this brand is designed to function perfectly with your F150 and can increase the longevity of your engine.

However, they do specify that this is not an absolute requirement. So long as you use an oil “Certified For Gasoline Engines” by the API (American Petroleum Institute) and ILSAC (International Lubricant Standardization and Approval Committee), you should be fine.

They do mention that using the Motorcraft brand will protect the car warranty.
