New Motorcraft oil is designed for hybrid electrics

Posted on August 15, 2014

Ford Motor Co. announced that Motorcraft has launched SAE 0W-20 Premium Synthetic Blend Motor Oil, a premium-quality passenger car motor oil recommended by Ford 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 standards.

“Motorcraft has added premium-quality motor oil to its line-up, 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.
