2012 Focus Coolant Type?

Can anyone verify that the new direct-injection 2.0L Focus engine does NOT use "Motorcraft Specialty Orange Engine Coolant", the new coolant Ford is moving to? This new coolant is based on OAT and contains 2-Ethyl hexanoic acid (2-EHA) the same formulation as Dex-Cool, a.k.a. "Death Cool" or "Engine acid" or "Liquid death".

if you are having to put in new coolant in your 2012.....you should really take it back to the dealer...like yesterday.

Just looked at the Owners Manual online and it does call for "Motorcraft Specialty Orange Engine Coolant".
