Easy To Maintain – Mercury Diesel’s 3.0L engine simplifies maintenance by locating service points at the front of the engine. The oil, coolant, fuse box, seawater strainer, drive lube (sterndrive only) and power steering fluid (sterndrive only) service points are located at the front of the engine next to Mercury’s color-coded maintenance schedule to provide easy-to-understand service guidelines and easy-to-reach access.
Redefining The Standard – The new Mercury Diesel 3.0L common-rail high-speed engine delivers exceptional performance and offers substantial improvements in acceleration and top speed – all made possible by a new water-cooled variable geometry turbocharger design (VGT). This matched system, plus a state-of-the-art engine control system, provides reduced time to plane and outstanding overall performance.
Reliability + Performance – Enjoying your time on the water is more easily achieved with an engine that performs day in and day out. Mercury Diesel’s 3.0L engine is assembled in a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility that employs the latest in quality practices and control, ensuring ultimate confidence in reliability. Combine the reliability and performance of the Mercury Diesel 3.0L with Mercury’s proprietary SmartCraft system and a full suite of accessories that contribute to an unsurpassed boating experience.
Quiet Performer – The Mercury Diesel 3.0L delivers exhilarating performance while minimizing noise and vibration, while the air filter doubles as a silencer that removes the turbo whine historically associated with diesel engines. The motor mounts are designed to minimize vibration. Having a conversation while cruising has never been easier.
Corrosion Resistance – Mercury diesels feature state-of-the-art anti-corrosion, including a thermostatically controlled closed water-cooled system. Water-cooled engine oil, gear oil and steering fluid decrease engine-room temperatures, extending engine life. The SeaCore® system is available for the ultimate in saltwater protection.
Everything and less.
Advanced turbocharger technology. Inboard and sterndrive power that can’t be beat. And fuel-injection systems that virtually eliminate the noise and harshness you expect from a diesel engine. More than an engine you can count on. A diesel experience like no other.
In it for the long haul.
Mercury diesel-powered engines give you unparalleled durability. Thermostatically optimised closed-coolant systems. Advanced control systems. And ultimate corrosion resistance. These engines are built to go the distance.
Heavy on performance, light where it counts.
Mercury diesel leads the industry in power-to-weight ratios, delivering heavy-duty propulsion in a lightweight package. For you that means quicker acceleration, faster planing, and improved maneuverability. Higher efficiency, too. Another bonus.
Run fast, run clean.
Advanced intake systems keep Mercury diesels running easy and clean. None of the harshness or fumes from traditional diesels. And an increase of up to 50 percent in fuel efficiency compared to gas engines of the same horsepower. More reasons to go Mercury diesel.
