introduced the new Pennzoil Ultra 0W-40 synthetic motor oil, created alongside
Chrysler Group engineers specifically to keep SRT engines running clean. The
advanced, co-engineered formulation is the result of months of collaboration
between Pennzoil scientists and Chrysler Group engineers to develop a motor oil
that provides the performance that SRT owners have come to expect from their high-tech
engines. Pennzoil Ultra 0W-40 is the motor oil Chrysler recommends for use in
all SRT engines, exceeding the stringent Chrysler MS-12633 specification.
owners understand the importance of performance and craftsmanship like few
others,” says Ralph V. Gilles, president and chief executive officer SRT
Brand and Motorsports, Chrysler Group LLC. “They know clean engines are more
efficient, better protected and perform at the demanding levels we’ve designed
our SRT engines to operate.”
The proprietary synthetic
formula of Pennzoil Ultra motor oil is designed to exceed the toughest industry
standards, so it will run through the engine of all new 2013 SRT Vipers when
they start coming off the factory line.
oils with engine design teams is the ultimate goal of a scientist,” says Dr.
Robert Sutherland, Pennzoil technology manager. “Understanding the intricacies
of an engine through conversations with Chrysler Group engineers, allows us to
formulate products that are optimized for the engine systems, resulting in
increased protection and performance.”
The latest SRT
engines feature increased power, efficiencies and some of the newest
technologies to squeeze every possible ounce of performance out of them.
Today’s engines are much more complex and sophisticated than their counterparts
of just a few years ago.
“As motor oil
developers, the past few years have been very exciting with the leaps in
lubricant technology and engine design,” says Sutherland. “Today, motor oils
are designed to serve many functions outside of simply lubricating an engine.
They can now enable complex hardware, as well as act as a coolant, hydraulic
fluid and cleanser at the same time, which help to ensure an engine runs its
best for as long as possible.”
