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.
