I believe in this manual it calls for Mercon? Is one brand better than another ? Would you run this or something different? It's due to be changed so wanted to go ahead and do it. Let me know what you guys recommend.

06 may be MerconV. Make sure and double check. I have used Castrol, Supertech, and Motorcraft. Never had a Ford tranny problem.

That chart is NOT correct. My owners manual in my 07 Mustang Automatic clearly states Mercon V.

I put royal purple syncromax in my 13 GT500 and it greatly improved the second gear shift. I changed it out and didn't mention it to the wife, first time she drove it following the change, she came in and said "What did you do to the transmission, it shifts so much better now"

According to Fords chemical chart you’re correct sir.
I pulled that chart from LMR (Late Model Restoration)
So I’d say they need to correct it ASAP.
Thanks for the heads up
