You should only use Mercon V in your transmission. While Dexron 6 might meet some specs of Merc V, it may not meet all of them. And each brand of Dexron 6 might be a little different and while still meeting the requirement of Dex 6, it might not work for Merc V. So only use what your car calls for, Merc V.

x2 .. use the Mercon V in a Ford transmission.

The Dextron 6 is for Chevys, fully synthetic I use this in all of my Chevys. Although there is no service specification - like the fully synthetic engine oil I use has the GM 4718M and GM 6094M specification .. there are no specs for ATF, so just use the Mercon V that is recommended.
