Brand new 2018 MKC... at what mileage/kms is the best for the first oil change ? With the new engines and oils currently, I've been told differing numbers.

Thank you in advance.

I'm a big believer in 1000-2000 mile first oil changes. I am an oil nerd though (I can admit that). If you are going to use Motorcraft oil, I would do 5000 mile oil changes (maybe 6 with full synthetic). The Ecoboost engines with turbo and DI are hard on the oil and bring some unique issues to deal with. I would only use a Dexos1 Gen 2 oil at this point, especially if you want to go over 5k OCI's. Ford did recently change some of their certifications but I don't know enough about it yet.
