MEET THE NEXT GENERATION OF THE INDUSTRY'S BEST ENGINES
Ilmor makes the marine industry's leading engines—and they're exclusive to MasterCraft. The only way to stay in the lead is to constantly push things forward and this year Ilmor engines are pulling even further ahead of the competition. Years in the making and new since 2017, the next generation of Ilmor power plant is redesigned and rethought from the block up to give you more of everything that matters. More efficiency, more reliability, more power, more precision, more responsiveness and more fun. Plus they use less fuel and have a simpler, smarter design. It's a block party. Get in on the action.
As of this model year, the 6000 GDI and the 7000 MPI Ilmor engines are now warrantied for seven years—the longest, most comprehensive engine warranty in the towboat industry. Fire it up and fire it off with more peace of mind than ever before.
The new 5500 GDI gives you more power per liter displaced and the new 6000 GDI brings more torque to the table. We'll bring the heat, you open the throttle and let it rip.
The new GDI design uses a 100% closed cooling technology, which means the engine is more protected with fewer corrosion points, under less stress and has a longer life. There are even fewer hoses and clamps and a new easy to access solid state fuse block that is completely resettable from the dash—all designed to keep you on the water and out of the shop. Drive all the time with even more peace of mind.
Direct injection also means the new model engines are more responsive to your throttle. Combined with smoother shifting thanks to new advanced transmission fluid and more sophisticated calibration for a punchier mid throttle—it's a hugely improved ride.
Alongside new wider-band oxygen sensors that optimize air-fuel ratio and fuel efficiency, the next generation gasoline direct injection Ilmor engines are the only 5-star emissions rated gasoline marine engines in the world. It's better for the air, better for anyone behind the boat and it's better for your wallet.
The direct fuel injection in the new next generation engines makes for more precise fuel use and creates more power at each size. It's smart engineering serving up precise fuel to the engine for maximum power and virtually no waste. Direct injection, double bonus: power and progression.
