FORD AND CASTROL CO-ENGINEER NEW ADVANCED LUBRICANTS FOR THE OFFICIAL FORD DEALERSHIP NETWORK IN THE UK

  • The Ford-Castrol MAGNATEC range updated with two new formulations 
  • Innovative DUALOCK technology protects engines against damage in start/stop driving*
  • Castrol MAGNATEC is the only engine oil recommended by Ford
  • Castrol’s collaboration with Ford started over 100 years ago 

Castrol continues to build on its long-term partnership with Ford Motor Company in the UK with the launch of a refreshed line-up of co-engineered Ford-Castrol MAGNATEC lubricants. The range, including two new formulations with innovative DUALOCK technology, has been developed to offer non-stop protection from every start*.

 

Available exclusively through Ford dealerships, Ford-Castrol MAGNATEC is the only engine oil recommended by Ford. The refreshed Ford-Castrol MAGNATEC range has new small-pack branding, aimed at raising awareness among Ford’s customers in the UK.   

 

Building on more than 20 years of Castrol MAGNATEC development, the latest Ford-Castrol products feature intelligent molecules that protect engines against wear by specifically clinging to surfaces, providing an extra layer of protection.

 

The refreshed, five-strong Ford-Castrol MAGNATEC range includes two new formulations featuring Castrol’s new DUALOCK technology. Available in 0W-30 D and 5W-20 E formulations, DUALOCK has been designed to protect engines against the damage caused by continuous start-stop driving.

 

Up to 75% of engine wear occurs during the warm-up*, and with the ever-increasing number of cars on the road, drivers today can find themselves starting and stopping up to 18,000 times a year**. Castrol’s DUALOCK molecules cling to critical engine parts and lock together, forming a powerful forcefield of protection that dramatically reduces both warm-up and stop-start wear by up to 50%***.

 

All Castrol MAGNATEC lubricants in Europe are certified Carbon Neutral by BS PAS2060.

 

Castrol lubricants were first supplied to Ford in 1914, and the pioneering partnership has underpinned a series of motorsport and technological achievements, from taking outright victory in the 1979 World Rally Championship, to the ongoing reliability of Ford’s innovative 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine, a powerplant that won the prestigious ‘International Engine of the Year’ award two years running.

 

Partnerships with vehicle manufacturers

Castrol is trusted by many of the world’s major vehicle manufacturers to supply factory-fill for their new vehicles, and to support those vehicles once they reach the aftermarket. Over one-third of new cars sold in Europe over the last decade featured Castrol lubricants at first fill (38%; LMC Automotive data, 2010 to 2019). In addition, two out of three major car manufacturers choose Castrol transmission fluids as part of their factory-fill (Castrol internal data).

 

Castrol is continually innovating in close collaboration with a range of vehicle manufacturing partners as well as Ford to develop fluids that meet the automotive industry’s evolving demands.
