Likely air in the system considering how much was replaced.

drain the whole system" with engine cool try 50/50 anti freeze which also prevents your engine from overheating (ie) brings the tempreture down" make sure the radiator matrix isnt clogged up?& cooling fan is working ok? or could it be that your temreture sender is faulty?

I agree with adam you probably didnt bleed the system of air as you were adding the new coolant in. On the top of your radiator their is a cross hatch plug remove it while filling the system until you see coolant come out of the hole and no air bubbles to know that your system has a complete bleed. Hope this helps

if it heats up real quick it could be a possible blown head gasket
