MERCURY Marine is asking customers to ‘un-think’everything they know about FourStroke outboards with the introduction of its all-new 75, 80, 90, 100 and 115hp Four-Stroke outboard models.
Cutting-edge engineering has delivered a compact and low-weight package from a
2.1-litre, four-cylinder, eightvalve, low-friction valve train with single-overhead-cam
design, to provide outstanding torque and horsepower.
At 2.1L, the new Mercury’s have one of the largest displacements in its class, and
deliver up to 23% more torque over previous FourStroke
Despite their larger capacity, the new115hp FourStroke model is the lightest anywhere, coming in 9kg lighter than the next closest competitive FourStroke product.
So light and compact, the 75-115hp FourStrokes even trump Mercury’s popular
1.5L OptiMax direct-injection models in the weight department.
Unbelievable fuel efficiency is also delivered, with the new 115hp model offering up
to 14% better cruise speed economy over Mercury’s previous FourStroke model.
The new Mercury Four-Stroke engines are based on the same architecture as the
extraordinarily reliable and extremely popular Mercury 150hp FourStroke, prized for
its simplicity, efficiency, and strong balance of durability and performance.
And unlike competitive 4- strokes, the lower-friction valve train is maintenance free
for the life of the engine, meaning less time in the workshop and more time on
Like all of Mercury’s engines, the new 75-115hp Four-Strokes have been tested
mercilessly to make them more durable and reliable. More than 17,000 hours of
testing, including vicious log strikes, saltwater spray booths, high humidity chambers
and hot and cold water temperatures, and hours of endurance testing, mean Mercury has gone even further to ensure these new engines are the most durable and reliable yet.
