I was in Sam's the other day and saw this oil. It looks like it replaces the Trop Artic that Sam's used to sell. Anyone know if it's Trop Artic's replacement? I also noticed that the new Motorcraft bottle design is the same as the Shield Choice bottle. Here are some pics.



Here are the new Motorcraft bottles.

Both synth blends bottled by Conoco Phillips. Decent oils for sure and probably the same formulation. It appears ithas replaced the Trop Artic synth blend for CP.

Trop Artic is pretty popular up here.

A couple of weeks ago, I was in my local Orscheln store and I saw they had these new bottles on the shelf. They also had the old TropArtic bottles on the shelf at the same time. Same price on both of them.
They used to put the TropArtic on sale for $2/quart. I'm still waiting for Orscheln to put the Shield Choice on sale. There probably isn't too much difference between them anyway.

Ahhh the Trop Artic name was a classic. frown Shield choice sounds like marketing made up by a teenager.

I need to breeze through Wal Mart and see if they have this. They never carried any Phillips products, except for Motorcraft, but who knows now. I haven't been in Wal Mart in almost two months.

My local Walmart had this oil for $1.77/qt so I picked up the 10w-30 they had on the shelf.

A decade ago, I most all WalMart stores in the Midwest carried TropArtic. For some reason, most WMs do not carry it anymore. Was it because it was a slow mover or did WM demand something from them that they were not willing to give, who knows? Last I checked, most Sam's Club stores carry it. The nearest WM store that I know carries it, or at least recently carried it, was a WM about an hour from me, but I suspect they only carry it because this WM store is right next to a Sam's Club. The local Orschelns stores carry it, but it hasn't been on sale lately. A couple of weeks ago, I noticed that Orschelns now carry both TropArtic and The Shield, both at the same price.

I wonder now, how does this new name compare with the new Motorcraft oils? The shield one doesn't mention titanium on the website. Could they have dropped it?

I've been running switching between the Kendall (from a Ford dealer who changes my oil sometimes) to Motorcraft on my Saturn. Seems to run good with both.
