So we bought an used 2016 Ford Fusion SE with the 2.0L Ecoboost engine a few weeks ago and this is my first DI or Turbo vehicle I have owned. The owner's manual calls for 5w30 that meets Ford specification WSS-M2C946-A. I was just going to run the Motorcraft Full Synthetic 5w30, but my local WM and AAP only carry the Motorcraft synthetic blend. I also plan to go by the OLM for my change intervals and will use the Motorcraft FL-910S filter until the warranty expires. Thanks

Pennzoil Platinum 5W30 is approved by Ford and is available/reasonable priced at Walmart.

Any of those previously mentioned would work fine as would Mobil 1.

Too thin.

Any major brand that meets specs will do fine.

What thicker 5w-30 will you find meeting this spec on the shelf? Note that every ILSAC 5w-30 out there has an HTHS of within 0.2 of each other anyhow.

Interesting but true.

Pennzoil does not make available HTHS of their oils.... For that motor... Give me 3.2 HTHS or higher or possibly Castrol Magnatec 5w30 which gas proven itself to be very good in direct injection motors. Two other oils which I know the high temp high shear ratings of are Valvoline Advanced full synthetic is 3.2 or Mobil Super Synthetic which is 3.3 HTHS. I'd rather have those above one that 3.0 or 2.9 HTHS in there.

Ecoboost is known to be extremely hard on oil. My main recommendation would be to change it often.

If it's out of warranty or one doesn't care, and it were me, I'd be using an E6 5w-30 in there.

I would use a 5W30 that meets the Ford spec as well as GM's dexos1 Gen 2 for its LSPI test...for example, the Valvoline 5W30 FS that I am running now meets both specs and has a high HTHS for a GF5/SN oil as bbhero has already mentioned. Probably not a fantastic super cold weather (meaning -25F and below) performer based upon Valvoline's data sheet, but you probably don't care about that in Kentucky.
Once SN Plus oils become commonplace, dexos1 Gen 2 won't be a big deal...right now, d1G2 is the only standard that tests for LSPI in DIT engines like Ecoboosts.

I had a 14 Focus ST. Ran the MC synblend and MC filter, 5k OCI and never had any issues.
