AMSOIL scientists designed this one-of-a-kind engine oil that is made entirely of synthetic components for enthusiasts looking for the highest possible level of protection and performance.
SS 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil is precisely designed using the most advanced technology available, as well as a decades-long commitment to the goal of producing the finest motor oil in the world. The result is unrivaled engine protection that stomps all over existing benchmarks in the field.
When compared to conventional oils, AMSOIL SS 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil provides superior protection against power loss and wear, allowing critical engine parts like camshafts and pistons to last longer.
To protect the moving parts of your XTS*’s engine from rubbing against one another, AMSOIL uses a special formula of 100% synthetic base oils that are both highly polar and molecularly symmetrical. To ensure that the engine has the longest possible life, only the most powerful and effective friction modifiers and anti-wear additives are used. This helps to further cut down on the amount of wear that occurs in metal-to-metal contact areas.
Two powerplant configurations are offered for the 2019 Cadillac* XTS*. The first option is a 3.6-liter V6 gasoline engine. The valvetrain consists of dual overhead camshafts, four valves per cylinder, and variable valve timing that is continuously variable.
The gasoline is delivered by means of an electronic throttle control and a direct high-pressure fuel injection system.
At 6,800 rpm, this engine can make 304 horsepower, and at 5,300 rpm, it can make 264 pound-feet of torque.
The second available engine is a V6 of 3.6 liters that is twin turbocharged. The valvetrain of this engine has been designed with 24 valves, four valves per cylinder, continuous variable valve timing, and dual overhead camshafts (DOHC.) Electronically controlled throttle complements the direct, high-pressure fuel injection used to supply the fuel.
At 6,000 revolutions per minute, the SAE-certified horsepower rating is 410, and at 1,900 revolutions per minute, the torque rating is 369 pounds-feet.
The XTS* has a six-speed automatic transmission that can be paired with either a front-wheel drive (FWD) system or an all-wheel drive (AWD) system.
The front-wheel-drive variant with 304 horsepower can accelerate from zero to sixty miles per hour in 6.6 seconds, while the all-wheel-drive version requires 7.2 seconds. The 410-horsepower XTS* accelerated from 0-60 mph in a respectable 5.2 seconds.
EPA estimates the fuel economy for city driving to be 19 mpg for FWD, 17 mpg for AWD, and 16 mpg for twin turbo. The EPA predicts a 28 mpg fuel economy for FWD, a 26 mpg fuel economy for AWD, and a 23 mpg fuel economy for the twin turbo when driven on the interstate.
The purpose of this article, titled 2019 Cadillac XTS* Oil Type, was to provide drivers of this luxury sport sedan an alternate point of view, namely that using a high-quality synthetic engine oil rather than a traditional motor oil would bring better advantages to the engine of your vehicle.
