Adaptive Speed Control that maintains RPM regardless of load or condition changes, improving the driving experience
“Based on what I’m hearing from our customers, we feel like we hit a homerun with the new V-6 FourStroke outboard lineup,” said Randy Caruana, Mercury Marine vice president North & Central America, and Asia Pacific. “What a great addition to the portfolio. These engines are light and quiet - to have a V-6 that’s lighter than a four-cylinder is just incredible.”
V-6 lineup of Mercury FourStrokes (175-225hp)
Mercury’s 3.4L, 200hp FourStroke is the company’s largest displacement in 200hp class. At 475 pounds, the engine is also the lightest in its class, and is 35 pounds lighter than current product in this range. With its performance-inspired dual overhead cam (quad cam) and four- valve design, the engine will reach higher speeds, faster. In addition, this outboard is the only one of its kind that maintains rpm regardless of load or condition changes and provides a “sportier” feel to the drivers.
Superior Fuel Economy
In addition, the new engines provide fuel savings to the consumer. At cruise and at WOT, the new four-stroke outboards take advantage of Mercury’s proprietary “Advanced Range Optimization” (ARO) calibration to generate greater fuel efficiency than the engine it is replacing and the closest four-cylinder competitor.
Additional Color Options
In addition to Mercury’s legendary black engines, this new lineup offers three shades of white available for the 200hp and 225hp outboards. For the first time, Mercury will also offer four accent panel colors plus ready-for-paint panels, which allow for personalization.
Noise, Vibration and Harshness
The new 3.4L V-6 boasts excellent NVH quality, and represents an advancement from current products. Key NVH-enhancing features include:
The V-6 design is naturally balanced.
Multi-chamber air-intake quiets induction noise.
Fuel injector covers reduce high-frequency noise.
Specific cowl features prevent noise from reaching the operator.
