After more than 100,000 units sold since 2003, Volvo Penta introduces a new generation of our D4 and D6 propulsion packages that deliver more power, torque and reliability– from helm to propeller. After having spent years refining and developing the proven platform even further, the D4 and D6 complete system delivers new exciting features from 150–480 hp. All to offer you the ultimate boating experience.
Increased Power Range
Up to 10% more power has been added to the new D4 and D6 generation engines, with a maximum output of 320 hp for D4 and 480 hp for the D6.
To achieve this, there are longer service intervals, the intervals have also been synced between the engine and drive. These improvements save up to 30% in maintenance costs.
The new Electronic Vessel Control (EVC2) system enhances the service capabilities of the engines, also providing faster software downloads and improved diagnostics. Specific to the D4 & D6 is the new onboard service assistant.
Onboard comfort significantly increases with less noise and vibrations, along with smooth and silent shifting on the new Aquamatic DPI drive.
Available for IPS, Aquamatic Sterndrive and diesel Inboard, these engines are designed to integrate perfectly from helm to prop.
Thanks to the new fuel injection system, you can expect more fuel efficiency and smooth cruising.
Prop to helm upgrades
The new generation brings you more power, comfort, and reliability than ever before.
Proven. Precise. Perfected.
We’ve made significant investments, both in resources and equipment, including more than 300.000 engineering hours, 40.000 hours of hard testing in rigs and boats, and upgrades in machining and production line technology. It’s all in the details. Ensuring precision and endurance in every gear, shaft, bearing, screw, and nut was a necessity.
The final assembly of the D4/D6 package is a vital part of the life of the product; here is where precision is critical. The drive assembly is made at our top of the line facility in Köping, where we carry out the finalization in a clean-room environment, with high precision, and with Swedish produced steel.
The engines are produced in a highly advanced facility in Vara, Sweden that ensures a 100% CO2 neutral production process. Our facility in Vara was the first example of a CO2 neutral production facility within the Volvo Group.
So let us present the full line up of our new D4 and D6 propulsion packages for the IPS, Sterndrive and Inboard engines.
