Clean, Quiet, Efficient – Direct Injection (DI) technology uses injectors to spray diesel fuel atomized at 26,000 psi directly into the main combustion chamber of each cylinder. This process optimises fuel efficiency and minimises emissions, along with engine Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH) for an enjoyable boating experience.
Lightweight – The TDI engine block is fabricated from Vermicular Graphite Casting (VGC), which has twice the strength of grey iron and most of its attributes, but is 5% to 10% lighter. The end result is low weight, high strength, and maximum heat transfer for optimum cooling.
Joystick Piloting for Inboards – The only joystick piloting system that’s compatible with gasoline or diesel inboard and tow sport engines. The only joystick piloting system for single-inboard boats.
Power & Performance – The low weight of these diesels results in best-in-class power-to-weight ratio. Combined with great low-end torque, the end result is crowd-pleasing hole shot, great acceleration, low planing times and ultra-smooth performance.
Intuitive Design – Mercury® SmartCraft® compatibility is built into these engines, delivering key information about vital engine functions on an easy-to-read LED display. SmartCraft Digital Throttle & Shift (DTS) offers smooth shifting, immediate throttle response and high-tech digital controls.
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.
