What oil to get?

So I'm finally changing my own oil for the first time. Yes I have someone who knows what they're doing to help me haha.

Now I'm wondering what oil to get.

I've just seen 2 different manuals because one says use a 5W-30, the other 5W-20.

Matmatician recommended a few brands, and 5W-20 so I'm going to take this advice.

My main question since I believe my warranty is still active, is if I should use the motorcraft formula which is recommended, or go with something like Valvoline or Mobil 1.

I've got to get this oil tonight, not sure why but that's what I was told by the person helping me, so hopefully someone sees this!
