Petro-Canada Dexron -VI ATF

Product Description


Petro-Canada DEXRON®-VI is an exceptional automatic transmission fluid approved by General Motors for use in vehicles with automatic transmissions. This unique fluid is specially formulated to provide twice the service life of a DEXRON®-III (H) ATF and offers enhanced performance for both new and older transmissions. It is designed to protect transmissions through improved oxidation resistance, friction durability, shear stability and wear protection to help meet warranty protection requirements in late model vehicles. Designed to provide responsive shift feel throughout the life of the oil, Petro-Canada DEXRON®-VI ATF consistently protects vehicle transmissions longer than all previous DEXRON® type fluids.

Petro-Canada DEXRON®-VI ATF was developed in conjunction with General Motors fluid design criteria for all 2006 and beyond model year vehicles with automatic transmissions calling for the GMW16444 specification. It is formulated with Petro-Canada’s 99.9% pure Purity Base Oils manufactured using the HT Purity Process and an enhanced additive system. Petro-Canada offers you an automatic transmission fluid that is the same high performance fluid as used at the factory for initial fill. In addition, as a development partner, Petro-Canada was granted the first DEXRON®-VI ATF license number from General Motors (J-60001).
