Here’s the Recommended Oil and Filter for Every Ford from 2013-2023

Your vehicle needs oil like humans need oxygen.

Oil helps your engine run safely, dissipate heat, and prevent wear and tear on its internal parts. Plus, it keeps unwanted contaminants out and stops sludge from building up. Taking the time to do regular oil changes is an important part of taking care of your vehicle.

This is especially true for Ford owners who might use their truck, SUV or van for work. Time off the road is time off the job after all!

That’s why we’ve compiled this complete oil guide for every Ford vehicle made since 2013. Our source was the Motorcraft chemical and lubricant US catalog, which is a sub-brand operated by Ford. Motorcraft products are exclusively recommend in every Ford owner’s manual, but alternatives are available.

Each table below includes:

  • Recommended engine oil
  • Quart refill quantity
  • Oil filter model
  • Applicable model years
  • Quick links to buy each oil type and filter

For the longer lists you’ll find a search bar at the top to help quickly find your vehicle.
