Mercury Marine formally introduced its second in-house-built sterndrive engine this morning — the MerCruiser 6.2L V8. The engine packs either 300 or 350 hp and is on the market.

“We are continuing to push the importance of a marine purpose-built engine, which is exactly what the new 6.2L is,” Mercury Marine VP of product development, engineering and racing David Foulkes said Tuesday at a press introduction.
