Considering both the v6 and v8 ship from the factory with synthetic...I'll keep using it.

Factory Fill is Mobil 1, there is no reason other than being cheap that you should go with anythng other than synthetic.

Fun fact for you. I was watching dirty jobs, and do you know where some of synthetic oil comes from? When farm animals die they collect them up and plants process them into different things, one of them being sythetic oil, so its really not synthetic.
