Thought about switching to 15-40, since its a little cheaper..i guess the only think i would be giving up is extreme cold protection, which again, we don't really get much of in Texas...good luck with your search.
Our winters get to -35 to -45 C and our summers get to +35 C and the dealer I go to puts in 5W40 Mobil 1 Delvac year round when you request synthetic.
Motorcraft 15w-40. 04 6.0
Motorcraft does not produce its own oil I don't recall who bottles it for Ford.
