Mercury Marine has announced the launch of the MerCruiser V8 6.2L 370hp Jet Ready inboard engine. The new Jet Power Inboard uses MerCruiser’s 6.2L small block V8 powerplant in an inboard configuration and has a tailstock in place of the transmission to allow for an easy connection to a jet pump via a jackshaft.
The Jet Power inboard, available only in drive-line applications, boasts exceptional control with Adaptive Speed Control and a quiet ride with an aft facing throttle body. The engine brings MerCruiser’s built for the water design to inboard jet applications, which results in better durability and easier maintenance.
“This engine gives boat builders, dealers and consumers a Mercury inboard jet option that provides easy integration with a jet pump, a full warranty on jet applications and enables consumers to leverage Mercury’s best-in-class dealer network for service,” said Kris Neff, Mercury Marine vice president of global category management.
The Aft-facing throttle body reduces intake noise and optimized engine mounts isolate undesirable vibration. The Adaptive Speed Control maintains engine rpm in every condition, requiring fewer throttle adjustments.
The Jet Power inboard engine will be available for sale in May.
Every MerCruiser Jet Power Inboard comes with Mercury Marine’s corrosion protection, a three-year limited corrosion warranty. MerCruiser Jet Power Inboard also carry a three-year factory limited warranty. An additional year of factory limited warranty is applied if the engine is installed by an IQ certified boat manufacturer.
