Motorcraft launches low viscosity motor oil for hybrids

Motorcraft has launched a premium-quality passenger car motor oil recommended by Ford Motor Company for 2013 model year and forward hybrid electric vehicles. SAE 0W-20 Premium Synthetic Blend Motor Oil meets engine oil recommendations for Ford, Lincoln and many other equipment manufacturers. It is API certified for gasoline engines, ILSAC GF-5 and meets API SN/Resource Conserving.

“Motorcraft has added premium quality motor oil to its lineup, geared specifically towards hybrid electric vehicles,” said Robert Boss,Motorcraft Maintenance Marketing Manager. “When Ford and many other manufacturer vehicles use Ford Quick Lanes, there is now a Motorcraft oil that delivers superior quality for this market subset.”

SAE 0W-20 includes performance additives and friction-reducing technology that provides superior engine protection and energy-conserving characteristics, which result in improved fuel economy compared to SAE 5W-20 and 5W-30 motor oils. Manufactured with high-viscosity index, premium-quality synthetic/hydroprocessed base oils and specifically designed performance additives, SAE 0W-20 helps minimize engine deposits and wear, protects against high temperatures, low-temperature gelling, rust corrosion and foaming.

With this addition, Motorcraft’s product offerings now cover eight different engine oil viscosities with many available in both a semi-synthetic and full-synthetic formulation.
