Amazon Enters Motor Oil Market with New Synthetic Offering

Noria news wires

Amazon recently entered the motor oil market with its new Amazon Basics synthetic motor oil. Formulated for longer drain intervals and to decrease the likelihood of low-speed pre-ignition, it is intended to be a step-up from synthetic blends while offering effective lubrication that helps protect the moving parts of an engine.

Dexos1 Gen 2, API SN and ILSAC GF-5 approved, the motor oil is engineered to create a protective coating that reduces wear on engine components. By minimizing friction from an engine’s in-contact moving parts, it can enhance fuel economy and promote better power output and performance.

Designed to keep engines clean by decreasing unwanted build-up that can cause damaging rust and corrosion, the Amazon Basics motor oil also provides resistance to viscosity and thermal breakdown while fighting volatility burn-off, which can reduce engine deposits and exhaust emissions.

In addition to its full-synthetic motor oil, Amazon also offers conventional, high-mileage full-synthetic and high-mileage synthetic-blend oils. Each motor oil is available in 1-quart and 5-quart containers, and in a number of viscosity grades for drivers to select based on their driving conditions and needs.
