Now there is only one name in diesel technology – Mercury Diesel!

The most trusted name for marine engines is now the one name you need to know for diesel technology – Mercury!

And as you’d expect, Mercury Diesel offers the world’s most outstanding high-speed diesel options; the brilliant TDI and QSD range of engines.

“The Mercury Diesel brand has been established following the decision to dissolve the Cummins MerCruiser Diesel (CMD) joint venture in September last year,” said David Meehan, Director – MerCruiser Australia, New Zealand, Pacific.

All the joint venture’s engineering and high speed product development was transferred to Mercury and is now under the Mercury Diesel brand.

“We now have these world class diesel engines which have proven themselves in the field in a huge range of applications, and with the global launch of the TDI motors last year the product range has gone from strength to strength,” David said.

Mercury Diesel has so much to offer.


The TDI range of diesel engines have been created with Volkswagen’s engineering excellence, to deliver automotive-like performance. Lightweight and compact, TDI diesels lead the industry in power-to-weight ratio. Exceptional torque at low engine speeds provides excellent acceleration and quicker time to plane.


A proven high-pressure common-rail fuel system provides a quiet, smooth ride with virtually no smoke or odour as well as some 80 percent less noise than rival diesel engines. Plus, QSD engines also provide impressive acceleration and precise throttle response.


Mercury has one of the most comprehensive dealer networks across Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific, so you’re never too far from help.


For the last 70 years, Mercury has led the industry in innovation and that tradition is going to be continued at Mercury Diesel. 

“As with everything else Mercury, we’re determined to stay ahead of the pack – stay tuned!” David said.
