Sorry for no info....... 2012 5.0 auto.
There are many schools of thought on this matter, but the bottom line is this: In order to keep your warranty you only need to change your oil as your Owner's Manual instructs. On 2012 this would mean waiting until the Oil Monitor says you need a change.
Many folks still recommend the early change to get the break-in contaminants out of the motor sooner, but the evidence in support of that action with modern engines is pretty slim.
Again, you can change early, but you only HAVE to do as much as your manual requires.
