New Mercury Diesels

Mercury Diesel has released new 150hp and 170hp variants of its 2L Inline-4 platform. Mercury’s innovative technology provides increased power-to-weight ratios, cleaner starts and less noise, while eliminating the smoke and smell often associated with diesel engines. Very reliable, compact and robust, the new engines are available as both inboards and sterndrives, and are fully compatible with Mercury’s DTS (Digital Throttle and Shift) technology. Variable geometry turbo (VGT) technology provides peak torque at 2000rpm, so turbo-lag virtually disappears, the boat gets to plane faster and drivers enjoy outstanding operating characteristics. The new engines are only 80cm long and 71cm wide. Producing only 68 decibels they are quieter than a normal conversation, and a closed cooling system increases engine longevity by keeping corrosion at bay. All models offer the latest Common Rail Fuel Injection technology and are fully Mercury SmartCraft-compatible. To find out more visit www.mercurymarine.com.au. – MM
