Cummins MerCruiser Diesel is extending its innovative Quantum diesel technology on the QSD2.0 platform with the pending release of the QSD2.0-170 hp engine, Alpha sterndrive package.
This propulsion system is well suited for small, single-engine runabouts. The new package will be EPA, RCD and IMO certified, and the QSD2.0-170 hp engine, first introduced last spring, will still be offered with Bravo One, Two and Three sterndrives. The new QSD2.0-170 hp with Alpha sterndrive package features a 1.62:1 gear ratio and will be available in the fourth quarter of 2008.
The QSD2.0-170 hp expands the QSD2.0 range from 115 to 170 hp. The entire 2.0 family boasts a new turbocharger for increased power and an advanced ECM with SmartCraftTM compatibility to monitor various engine parameters. The QSD2.0 line also features advanced components such as the integrated heat exchanger and exhaust manifold, which help reduce overall package size and weight. Impressive acceleration and precise throttle response are the result of a proven high-pressure common-rail fuel system that includes seawater aftercooling.
Based in Charleston, South Carolina (USA), Cummins MerCruiser Diesel is responsible for designing, manufacturing and providing reliable after-sales support worldwide for marine propulsion products. It offers a broad range of power, with available ratings from 115-715 HP for recreational applications and 76-715 HP for commercial use.
