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 Fast Lane Truck team partnered up with Shell Rotella to torture test the Ram Rebel Engine. The Shell Rotella Gas Truck Torture tests are a part of a five episode series showcasing some of the toughest environments across the United States for vehicles.
The engine of the 2019 Ram Rebel is being protected with the Shell Rotella Gas Truck synthetic engine oil to demonstrate extreme protection for towing and hauling for gasoline-powered pickup trucks and SUVs. The protection these engines need is available in three viscosity grades: 0W-20, 5W-20, and 5W-30 for gasoline pickup trucks and SUVs new and old.
The oil, from the makers of Shell Rotella heavy-duty diesel engine oil, offers the protection these engines need in three viscosity grades: 0W-20, 5W-20, and 5W-30 beginning in January 2019 in the U.S. and in May 2019 in Canada. The oil will be available in 1 quart, 5 quart, and Ecobox in the U.S.
“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 oil, according to the 2017 Kline report, 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 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.
