It's standard marketing. The point of the products is to take up more shelf space so they can crowd out their competitors. Lots of big name brands do it, that's why they're always coming out with something new and interesting to jack up sales and take up more space, space that won't go to a competitor. No sales data so the retailer will probably take some payment for the shelf space and if it doesn't sell, then they'll get rid of it. Witness Annual protection...

Marketing -

you can charge more for the same product if you make the consumer believe it is "special" in some way

Didn't they have a truck and suv oil at some point in the past? This looks like round 2 of this kind of marketing.

"Formulated with high-performance base oils and a 10% boost in an additive that helps prevent deposit formation and protects against wear"

Just 10%? My hardworking engines demand 12%.
