Oct 31, 2018
Just for Hard-Working Gasoline-Powered Trucks and SUVs
Las Vegas, NV – Shell Lubricants is introducing Shell Rotella® Gas Truck full synthetic engine oil providing, extreme protection for towing and hauling for gasoline-powered pickup trucks and SUVs. The oil, from the makers of Shell Rotella heavy duty diesel engine oil, offers the unsurpassed protection these engines need in three viscosity grades: 0W-20, 5W-20 and 5W-30 beginning in January in the U.S. and in May in Canada. The oil will be available in 1 quart, 5 quart and Ecobox in the U.S. and 5 liter in Canada.
“We’re excited to introduce an oil for pickup trucks and SUVs that meets the demands of modern and older gasoline engines,” said Megan Pino, Shell Rotella global brand manager. “We have more than 40 years’ experience protecting hard-working engines, so we understand what kind of operating conditions these vehicles are likely to face. Whether being driven for work or fun Shell Rotella® Gas Truck full synthetic engine oil works hard to protect and prolong engine life for all new and older trucks and SUVs.”
Shell Rotella, the number one brand of heavy-duty engine oil1, is the first major oil brand to introduce a complete portfolio of full synthetic motor oils for both heavy duty diesel engines and gasoline-powered trucks and SUVs. All three grades of Shell Rotella Gas Truck motor oil are formulated to provide unsurpassed wear protection in even the most extreme conditions trucks and SUVs face, including heavy hauling, towing, extreme temperatures and off-road. The synthetic base oil delivers added oxidation stability, improved volatility and low-temperature properties.
Shell Rotella Gas Truck is recommended for use in gasoline-powered pick-up trucks and SUVs, including those that experience more extreme conditions, including driving with heavy loads, stop and go driving, frequent short trips, extreme hot or cold temperatures, and extensive idling. The oil is approved for use in Ford, GM, Ram and Toyota gas-powered trucks and SUVs.
Shell Rotella Gas Truck 0W-20 and 5W-20 full synthetic motor oils help protect engines in extreme temperatures and conditions and outperform conventional motor oil in severe driving conditions providing unsurpassed wear protection and helping prevent sludge and other damaging deposits. Both oils meet API SN PLUS and API SN-Resource Conserving and are ideal for modern turbocharged engines. SAE 0W-20 and 5W-20 viscosity grade oils are commonly recommended for use in many new vehicles with modern engine technology2 for maximum fuel economy and performance.
