Motorcraft Introduces Motor Oil Designed for Hybrids

July 18, 2014 - Press Release

Motorcraft has introduced a low viscosity motor oil product recommended by Ford Motor Company for 2013 model year and forward hybrid electric vehicles. The 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.

The SAE 0W-20 oil 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, synthetic/hydro-processed 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, according to Motorcraft.

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. SAE 0W-20 has been available since February.
