ExxonMobil on September 10 signed an agreement to continue as the lubricants supplier for the U.S. General Motors’ dealer network for the next five years. In addition, ExxonMobil announced that a number of its key products, including Mobil 1, are now officially dexos licensed worldwide.
The new dexos licensed ExxonMobil products will meet the GM global engine oil specifications and will be designated by displaying dexos1 or dexos2 logos on the product labels. These engine oils are designed to meet the specific requirements of gasoline and diesel engines used in GM vehicles worldwide.
“We’ve been working with GM for a long time, and we look forward to continued growth with this important alliance,” said Ken MacGibbon, sales director strategic global alliances for ExxonMobil Lubricants & Petroleum Specialties Company. “ExxonMobil has been the supplier for the U.S. GM dealer network since 1990, and during the last 20 years, the GM service fill program has become one of the best original engine manufacturer lubricants programs in the industry. With strong efforts between both companies, we have grown sales, including Mobil 1, every year within the GM dealership network.”
“Our track record with ExxonMobil has been very strong, and we select our lubricant supplier based on their quality, reliability and their ability to help us grow our business,” said Jeff Quigley, general director, GM Customer Care and Aftersales. “We can count on ExxonMobil to support our dealer network and train them on the use of quality lubricants.”
ExxonMobil’s dexos licensed products will provide consumers with a strong product offer giving GM drivers more options when it comes to their motor oil. Part of the offer will be Mobil 1, the world’s leading synthetic motor oil brand, with Mobil 1 5W-30 for dexos1 and Mobil 1 ESP 0W-40 for dexos2.
As part of the agreement, ExxonMobil will also market General Motors’ new semi-synthetic engine oil, ACDelco dexos1 5W30, to be launched later this year in the U.S. and Canada.
