ExxonMobil has been the Bowling Green Assembly Plant’s motor oil of choice for 21 years and on Monday the oil company announced a new agreement with General Motors for the Chevrolet Corvette. That new agreement ensures that Mobil 1 motor oil will continue flowing as the factory fill of choice for the current 2014 Corvette Stingray and the highly anticipated 2015 Corvette Z06 due out next year.
Chevrolet has named Mobil 1 5W-30 as the recommended oil for all Corvette models. For those owners taking their Corvettes to the track or other high-performance application, the use of Mobil 1 15W-50 is encouraged to ensure full engine protection and optimal engine efficiency.
“It is a testament to ExxonMobil’s commitment to advanced lubricant technology that Chevrolet has chosen Mobil 1 synthetic motor oil for the high-performance Corvette engines,” said David Tsurusaki, strategic global alliance manager, ExxonMobil Fuels & Lubricants. “As the Corvette Stingray hits roads around the world, we want Corvette owners to know that Mobil 1 motor oil is specifically designed to meet their high-performance demands and will help keep their engines running like new.”
The relationship with ExxonMobil goes back 21 years with Mobil 1 being selected as the factory-fill oil at the Corvette Assembly Plant since 1993. In addition to the factory Corvettes, Mobil 1 is the oil of choice for Corvette Racing’s C7.R racers competing in the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship. With Mobil 1, Corvette Racing’s C7.Rs compete on some of the most demanding endurance races in the world including the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Rolex 24 at Daytona and the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring.
