. Don't know why ford has to make the coolant system so tricky.
This is nothing new.
On the 7.3L engines you needed to test and add the FW-16 additive
On the 6.0L and 6.4L you needed to test and add the VC-8 additive
On the 6.7L you need to test and add the VC-12 additive.
The additives have changed, as the engine blocks have changed and what needs to be protected has changed.
The new Specialty Orange coolant is a new World Wide standard coolant for Ford, that in time will become the standard coolant used on all Ford engine around the world. It is not backward compatible with older Ford engines. So as Ford designs new engines, it is designing them work with this new coolant.
Checking it every 13,000 to 15,000 miles is not that big a deal.
