DETROIT & SPRING, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–To make assembling and installing crate engines easier than ever,
ExxonMobil and General Motors (GM) have announced that Mobil 1™, the
world’s leading synthetic motor oil brand, has been named as the
Official Motor Oil of Chevrolet Performance. This is the first time that
Chevrolet Performance, a pioneer and innovator in factory-engineered
crate engines, has endorsed, recommended and offered a line of
race-proven full synthetic motor oils with any crate engine purchase.

With nearly 50 Chevrolet Performance crate engines available in the
Chevrolet Performance engine portfolio, racers and automotive
enthusiasts have virtually limitless possibilities for new- and
old-school projects as well as race cars, and there is a Mobil 1 product
available regardless of application. Ensuring that customers with either
street-rodding or racing ambitions can enjoy the race-proven protection
of Mobil 1, both Mobil 1 and track-use only Mobil 1 Racing oils will be
available to order with any crate engine purchase, helping eliminate an
additional step during purchase.

“It’s never been easier to select a ready-to-run Chevrolet Performance
crate engine system for a project vehicle or race car,” said Jim
Campbell, GM U.S. vice president of Performance Vehicles and
Motorsports. “Chevrolet Performance offers factory-engineered crate
engine and powertrain systems which we test to the same standards as
production vehicles. Motor oil is an important aspect of what helps our
crate engines achieve their performance potential. Today, we are proud
to announce that a customer can now order their Chevrolet Performance
crate engine with available Mobil 1 full synthetic motor oil.”

For street-focused builds, dexos® GM-approved Mobil 1 5W-30 or Mobil 1
15W-50 are especially suited for high- and low-temperature protection,
while dexos2® GM-approved Mobil 1 ESP Formula 0W-40 will also be
available, the first motor oil specifically developed for Corvette LT1
and LT4 engines.

For track focused applications, Mobil 1 Racing 0W-30 and Mobil 1 Racing
0W-50 feature double the zinc vs. regular street oils and were
specifically designed for highly-loaded flat-tappet engine applications.

“This recommendation marks a new chapter in our relationship with GM and
Chevrolet Performance,” said Cam Bower, strategic global alliance
manager at ExxonMobil. “For GM to exclusively recommend Mobil 1 and
Mobil 1 Racing Oils for its Chevrolet Performance Crate Engines is a
testament to the technical and business relationship between our two
companies. The new partnership not only improves the crate engine
purchasing process by providing consumers the opportunity to purchase
oil when they purchase their engine, but our race-proven technology will
provide exceptional engine performance and protection.”

Mobil 1 engine oils have long been the lubricant of choice for Chevrolet
race teams competing in the most demanding and popular motorsports
series across the globe. This includes Corvette Racing, which has used
off-the-shelf Mobil 1 Racing 0W-50 to win more than 100 races including
the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and many championships including the 2018 GTLM
team championship in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.

Every Chevrolet Performance dealer will be equipped with a guide to
recommend the most suitable Mobil 1 and Mobil 1 Racing product and
viscosity for any application, including powertrains like the popular
Connect & Cruise and E-ROD emissions-compliant systems.
