ACDelco introduces dexos1™ Gen2 as best option for spark-ignited gasoline engines

  • Reformulated to reduce calcium and provide higher engine performance and protection
  • Enhanced friction properties to improve fuel economy


Motor Expo 2017, BANGKOK – 29 November, 2017 –ACDelco is a global leader in automotive replacement parts, has launched ACDelco dexos1™ Gen2, an enhanced low-emissions engine oil, at the Motor Expo 2017 in Bangkok.


Speaking at the launch ceremony at ACDelco’s booth at Motor Expo 2017,  Mr. Douglas Soden, Sales & Marketing Manager Aftersales, General Motors International Operations, said, “ACDelco dexos1™ Gen2 is a fully synthetic gasoline engine oil that is reformulated to reduce calcium and provide better vehicle performance as well as low-speed pre-ignition (LSPI) protection, particularly for small displacement turbocharged engines. It also provides high-shear stability and excellent oxidation resistance, as well as enhanced friction properties to improve fuel economy. Gen2 meets dexos1™: 2015 and exceeds API SN / ILSAC GF-5 standards”.

According to Mr. Soden, design of the modern automotive engine is trending towards smaller capacity engines that utilize intake air compression systems as well as direct fuel injection, in order to achieve high fuel efficiency with strong engine performance, which is friendly to the environment. However, these types of engines require a higher performance engine lubricant containing technology that can prevent Low Speed Pre-ignition or LSPI.

“ACDelco dexos1™ Gen2 is the result of extensive research and development aimed at making engines more powerful and responsive”, said Mr. Soden

“As one of the world’s premium suppliers of original equipment automotive replacement parts, we are committed to providing innovative, quality products to ensure a superior experience for our customers.”, said Mr. Worapan Phunman, Director, Aftersales Development - Thailand & Export, GM Thailand. “dexos1™ Gen2 is the best option for spark-ignited gasoline engines regardless of make, model or year”.

The introduction of ACDelco dexos1™ Gen2 marks another expansion of ACDelco’s aftermarket product portfolio, which includes almost 90,000 parts across 37 product lines.
