Shelby American is recommending Blue Flame Diesel for its new Ford Shelby F-250 Super Baja, a Limited-Edition off-roading pick-up truck. The news was announced in a press release from Champion Oil.
“We deigned the Shelby F-250 Super Baja pickup to perform under extreme conditions, both on and off-road,” said Gary Patterson, president of Shelby American. “With 6.7-liter V8 Power Stroke Turbo Diesel churning out 475- horsepower and 1,050 pound-feet of torque, the truck can really fly. For such an aggressive application, we recommend using Champion’s Blue Flame 15w40 CK4/SN Performance Diesel Engine Oil.”
Built for Shelby in Elkhart, Indiana, by Tuscany Motor Co., and in Las Vegas by the Shelby American team, the trucks will be sold at select Ford dealers in the U.S. Each will be documented in the official Shelby Registry. Production will be limited to only 250 vehicles.
Shelby American was founded in 1962 by legendary race car driver and car manufacturer Carroll Shelby. He is well known for being the only person to win the 24 hours of Le Mans as a team driver, manager and manufacturer. He was portrayed by Matt Damon in the film “Ford vs. Ferrari” which was released in 2019.
Blue Flame Diesel Engine Oils are formulated with workhorse high-zinc performance additives, superior protection, advanced polymer technology, and high TBN, supported by a carrier blend of synthetic fluids. The Shelby F-250 Super Baja needs a total of 13 quarts, of oil including the capacity of the oil filter.
These products from Champion deliver high temperature film strength and lubricity protection, with the muscle to combat oil shear and maximize sustained cylinder compression. They also inhibit oxidation, corrosive acids, sludge and varnish build-up.
These robust performance oils keep diesel engines going longer by reducing soot- induced engine wear, controlling abrasive soot contamination and preventing high temperature corrosion, even while allowing for improved fuel economy and lower total cost of ownership. They are proven to increase engine horse power and torque.
