Phillips 66 Lubricants Introduces Kendall VersaTrans LV ATF And Kendall CVT Fluid

New Kendall motor oils offer maximum protection and improved transmission efficiency for passenger cars.

HOUSTON — Phillips 66 Lubricants, one of the largest finished lubricants suppliers in North America, has announced the addition of two new products to its Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) line with the launch of Kendall VersaTrans LV ATF and Kendall CVT Fluid. The lubricants are designed for use in passenger vehicles with conventional automatic transmissions and continuously variable transmissions, respectively.

The specially engineered, full-synthetic Kendall VersaTrans LV ATF is formulated to help ensure long service life and to provide consistent shift performance for the life of the fluid, the company says. Additionally, this low-viscosity fluid results in less frictional drag for improved transmission efficiency, thereby offering the potential for improved fuel economy. Kendall VersaTrans LV ATF is licensed as Ford MERCON LV and GM DEXRON VI ATF. It is recommended for use in the newer Ford, GM and Toyota passenger car and light truck automatic transmissions, which require use of modern, low viscosity ATFs.

Kendall Motor Oil’s new CVT Fluid offering is designed with carefully balanced frictional properties to meet the unique requirements of passenger cars with belt-driven continuously variable transmissions. Compared to conventional all mineral fluids, this new synthetic fluid provides enhanced performance in oxidation stability, wear protection and service life. Kendall CVT Fluid is recommended for use in most Honda, Jeep, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Subaru and Suzuki vehicles with CVT transmissions, under all operating conditions, including extreme temperatures.

“The launch of the new ATF products further demonstrates Phillips 66 Lubricants’ commitment to offering customers leading technology in premium automotive lubricants,” said Phil Sontag, director, automotive products, Phillips 66 Lubricants. “We’re proud to extend the Kendall Motor Oil line with products that offer enhanced benefits to customers—providing excellent protection for a key investment, their cars, light duty trucks and SUVs.”

Although Kendall VersaTrans LV ATF and Kendall CVT Fluid are designed to meet different transmission requirements, both fluids offer the following benefits and features:

•Outstanding friction durability for consistent shift performance for the life of the fluid
•Full synthetic for excellent oxidation resistance and thermal stability for long fluid life
•Low viscosity for improved fuel economy
•Excellent low-temperature properties for easier shifting in cold weather
