Shell Rotella Adds Engine Oil for Gas-Powered Trucks and SUVs
New Shell Rotella Gas Truck full synthetic engine oil is designed to provide extreme protection for towing and hauling for gasoline-powered pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles (SUVs).
Shell Lubricants says the new oil offers the unsurpassed protection these engines need in three viscosity grades: 0W-20, 5W-20 and 5W-30. Shell Rotella Gas Truck full synthetic engine oil will be available in January in the U.S. and in May in Canada. The oil will be available in 1 quart, 5 quart and Ecobox in the U.S. and 5 liter in Canada.
“We’re excited to introduce an oil for pickup trucks and SUVs that meets the demands of modern and older gasoline engines,” says 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.”
The company says Shell Rotella 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 unsurpassed 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.

The oil is approved for use in Ford, GM, Ram and Toyota gas-powered trucks and SUVs.
Shell Rotella Gas Truck 0W-20 and 5W-20 full synthetic motor oils help protect engines in extreme temperatures and conditions and outperform conventional motor oil in severe driving conditions providing unsurpassed wear protection and helping prevent sludge and other damaging deposits.
