"...expect a 25-30 percent cost increase -- which could be about the same as choosing pure synthetic oil..."

"...The new GF-5 and GM dexos oils are superior to most non-synthetic oils..."

The above statements imply to me that pure synthetics are still superior. The V2s have come with Mobil 1 since day 1, so not sure this new type is applicable to us?

Dexos is not an oil per se. It is a new oil specification that GM is requiring starting on all its 2011 models. Mobil 1 and other high end synthetic oils meet this specification, so you don't have to look for Dexos brand oil.
