Type of oil in new F150?

I have a new 2010 F150 Platinum and wondered if Ford put synthetic in them at the factory. I'm ready to change oil but want to use the same type. I looked in the book but it does not say which is installed at the factory but did list synthetic as one of the selections.

I'm not really new here but the F150 is new as I traded my 07 F350. Did not need that capacity any more. Sure liked it, and like the new one too.

I think they put Motorcraft 5W20 which is a synthetic blend.

Motorcraft offers both a synthetic blend and a full synthetic in 5w20.

Your truck came with the recommended MC 5w20 synthetic blend from the factory.

MC 5w20 synthetic blend is a great oil at a great price. Most Walmarts carry it in 5 QT jugs for $11-15 (and FL-820S filters for $4-5 too).

I use Motorcraft Synthetic Blend in all my Fords along with Mototcraft Filters. I even ran it in my Ex-Jeep I'll even put it in my dad's Terota if he brings it by! When they are on sale I pick up a bunch. I have a nice selection of 820Ss and FL1As in my garage! Like Shotgunz says the 5qt jug with a 1 qt bottle from wallywordls is the way to go!

I've actually just recently converted back to MC 5W-20 synthetic blend. I've been using mobil1 for ever but I feel that the MC oil provides very good protection for the cost.

The main reason I switched is because my future 2011 F-150 will have a factory 10,000 mile oil change interval. The main reason for that is the 8 quart sump. Using mobil 1, an oil change will cost me about $60, it will be half that using the MC oil.

Here's a trivia question. Does anyone know who packages the oil and puts Motorcraft's name on it? Just curious.

I use it in my Escape, F-150, 08 Impala and even my John Deere with a Kawasaki engine. Fords get 5w20, Chev 5w30 and Deere gets 10w30. I changed oil last week in 3 and it has gone up $ .50 per quart since the last time I changed it.
