For a big part of my life I was an Owner Operator truck driver. I bought a brand new Mack in 2003 and they recommended >30,000 miles oil changes. I think it was actually 36,000 miles. Regardless, this was an uncomfortable adjustment for me as I'd always changed my oil at 10,000 miles on my previous trucks. I did do oil analysis's before pushing it out to 30k+, but they awlays showed I still had capacity left in the oil, so I evenetually just went with their recommendations.
Since, I've just followed what the manufacturer recommended or when their built in oil light said, even when it felt like it wasn't soon enough. My personal vehicles, too. It has saved me alot of money over the years in unneeded oil changes and I've never had a failure related to engine lubrication. I had over 500,000 miles on my Mack when I sold it and it was still going strong.
Big diesels and car engines are apples and oranges, but I do think the extended oil change recommendations by the manufacturers are similair enough to be noted.
keep in mind hybrid and EB are differentYou are correct ford uses break in oil in your new veh. I follow 5k changes along with tire rotation.
