LIQUI MOLY Introduces New Oil For Jaguar Land Rover

Jaguar Land Rover Ltd. has officially approved Special Tec LR 0W-20.

LIQUI MOLY has launched a new oil in North America for Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles: Special Tec LR 0W-20.

Jaguar Land Rover Ltd. has officially approved Special Tec LR 0W-20. The STJLR 51.5122 approval is required for the latest gasoline engines in Jaguars and Land Rovers.

“0W-20 is a particularly low-viscosity motor oil,” said Oliver Kuhn, deputy head of the oil laboratory at LIQUI MOLY.

The engineers at Jaguar and Land Rover use this as one of many approaches to reduce consumption and minimize emissions. A thin oil can be pumped more easily and has less inside resistance. This means the engine loses less performance.

“The challenge is for such a thin oil to still reliably lubricate the engine even under extreme load,” Kuhn added.

LIQUI MOLY developed Special Tec LR 0W-20 exclusively for Jaguar and Land Rover.

“The two brands used to simply follow the oil specifications of the former owner, Ford, but since 2014 they have gone their own way here, which takes them ever further away from Ford,” Kuhn explained. That’s why Special Tec LR 0W-20 is not suitable for any other models.

LIQUI MOLY noted two trends in all automotive markets: less-viscous motor oils for lower fuel consumption and emissions, and more specialized oils with ever-smaller areas of use.

As there are more and more specialized oils on the market, it will become harder for shops and DIYers to keep them all straight. That’s why LIQUI MOLY has developed a free online guide. Just enter the make, model and engine to immediately view a list of the right oils.

“LIQUI MOLY is proud to be the main motor oil for more and more service shops,” said Sebastian Zelger, director, LIQUI MOLY USA. “As many shops see growth potential by serving niche markets as well, LIQUI MOLY continues to provide specific oils for cars such as Land Rover and Jaguar models. With the LIQUI MOLY Special Tec LR 0W-20 oil, we are extending our distributors’ and shops’ capabilities to serve their customers and grow their business with leading innovation in motor oils and additives.”
