It looks like another home run for Evinrude. The small block series (2.7L now) G2 motors are remarkable. Now you can get power steering, automatic trim, and digital controls all the way down to 150 HP motor.

 

The 150 and the others are very powerful for their rating and are outstanding on fuel economy. Effort was expended in quieting them even more and they were successful. The power curve has gobs of low end torque and a flat horsepower curve for reaching its rated power early in the rpm range.

 

In a test against the new Yamaha 200 HP the Evinrude E-TEC G2 150 HP could plane a 25' offshore boat on one engine to 30 mph where the 200 HP more powerful Yamaha could not.

 

You will see more great news about the motor in the coming weeks.

Hi Bill,

         Actually I can't claim all the credit. I copied and pasted them from another forum. I never would have found them otherwise. Lots of concern from the repower guys, about the weight, on other forums.

        My 2cents, Evinrude is focused on the new boat / motor packages with these new G2's.

Cheers

Thanks, now all I need to do is to convince the wife that we need to swap our 2014 150 E-tec which ,by the way has been excellent so far. I'll even let her choose the coloursSmiley Happy

One question, I see that steering is only mentioned as "Remote" on the 150. No integrated powersteering available on this model?

There are 3 versions 150 E-TEC this year. The original G1 series is still around plus a G2 model with iTrim and power digital steering that looks just like the larger G2 Evinrudes. A third model is the G2 powerhead mounted on a Fast-Trak midsection. On that one you can use either a cable or traditional  hydraulic steering. It is priced between the 2 other models.
