Sept. 29, 2022—Phillips 66 Lubricants has launched VersaTrans ULV ATF, a new automatic transmission fluid.
According to a press release, VersaTrans ULV ATF is designed to meet the specifications of newer Ford and GM vehicles with 9 and 10 speed transmissions. It is a full-synthetic and ultra-low viscosity transmission fluid.
“By expanding our line to include one of the first ATFs approved as a Ford MERCON ULV licensed product, installers carrying Phillips 66 or Kendall can now service newer Ford and GM vehicles where ULV fluids are recommended and fuel savings is expected,” said Jim Chancey, Director of Automotive Products at Phillips 66 Lubricants via the press release. “VersaTrans ULV comes to market just as many 2018 models are nearing time for a transmission service and drivers are looking to maintain their vehicles for longer ownership.”
This product will be available beginning Oct. 1, 2022. Some of the benefits of VersaTrans ULV ATF, according to the press release, include: improved transmission efficiency, potential improved fuel economy performance, high resistance to foam formation and retention, protection against sludge and varnish, low-temperature properties that help maintain a high shifting performance in colder weather and more.
