Recommended coolant?

So in the 6.0L world, Ford Gold coolant was a known no-no. I ran CAT ELC for years happily.

What's the recommended coolant for a 2015 6.7L? Even more fun, I see I have a pair of cooling circuits to flush LOL

So strong is Tradition that later generations will dream of what they have never seen.

DEX Cool is ok. Or any coolant that meets or exceeds the requirements of WSS-M97B44-D, GMW 3420 (superseded GM 6277M) and ASTM D 3306 per the Motorcraft site.

I am wondering if the New Motorcraft/Ford Yellow coolant used in the 2018 and newer 6.7's can be used if you do a flush and fill. It has a 10 year/200,000 mile life.

Autozone, $20 and file quick online rebate for $5 every gallon you buy. So all in all, their $15 after itís all said and done. And ford allows it. Already checked.
