Ford will tell you Motorcraft, but in reality, you only need to meet or exceed the Ford specification WSS-M2C945-A. For warranty purposes especially, you want to make sure of this - there would be few things worse than getting a warranty claim on an engine denied because a non-approved oil was used.
