I'd like go go with mobil1 synthetic. If I'm not mistaken these cars come with synthetic blend so going with straight synthetic at such a low mileage shouldn't be an issue?
As far as I know Ford doesn't use any "break in" additives so you should be fine.
I found this list of Oil Myths interesting, especially #7 as it quotes an expert at Blackstone saying he doesn't think synthetic adds MPG and another expert questions whether synthetic is worth the extra cost. I think if you've got the extra $20 each oil change and it makes you feel better it's worth it. Urban Legend #5 does sort of support changing the oil earlier than normal.
