Now go out there and change that oil and filter! Yeah, I know they say newer engines don't need that initial early changeout these days, but regardless, I plan to do it at 1000 miles when I get mine. Is it true the sump now takes 10 quarts? Yikes, gotta get me a larger oil drain pan at Walmart!
8QTS. Will switch to Mobil 1 at approx 2k miles. Ford manuals are now saying change oil every year or 10,000 miles. 10k on an oil change?! This is what happens when bean counters make service recommendations.
