A long life non-silicate coolant like the Ford Gold that came stock in mine is better for the water pump seals (for example) and it only has to be changed after 5 yrs. instead of 2 yrs. so the price evens out.
There's a lot of advice about bleeding I've seen, but none of the ones I know about have bleed screws that NEED to be dealt with like some other vehicles have. The system instead uses those tiny plastic lines to self bleed - on mine I've changed the coolant and only needed to top up at the reservoir to get it properly filled.
Some have mentioned removing an upper hose to fill it quicker, I'm afraid I haven't read a factory manual to see if that is "officially" recommended.
Someone with more knowledge of your particular engine will probably chime in with more details....
