MerCruiser launches V8 sterndrives

ADVERTISEMENT

Wisconsin-based Mercury MerCruiser has launched 6.2-liter V-8 300hp and 350hp sterndrive engines to deliver increased power and torque.

The engines are built specifically for marine use rather than adapting and marinizing an automotive engine and so does not have automotive restrictions and unnecessary technologies.

A long runner scrolled intake manifold optimizes air flow for higher torque, which translates into greater acceleration and improved boat performance. High displacement produces a strong power-to-weight ratio, which lets the operator plane quickly, handle rough seas better and stay on plane at lower speeds.

The 6.2L V-8 also offers Adaptive Speed Control (ASC), which automatically maintains a set rpm point regardless of load or condition changes.

An air-intake resonator suppresses harsh sound frequencies throughout the engine operation range, while an aft-facing throttle body directs noise away from the cockpit. And larger and optimized engine mounts reduce resonant vibration sounds.

The 6.2L features a maintenance center near the top-front section of the engine, and a QR code on the service label allows smartphone users to access “how to” videos online.

It is available with optional freshwater cooling, which uses a heat exchanger and coolant fluid to maintain engine temperature.
