GM engineers spent more than 10 million computational analysis hours creating the next-generation Gen-V engine. Carefully designed to support the most ideal combination of Direct Injection, Active Fuel Management, and Variable Valve Timing—all of which translate into enhanced power and fuel efficiency—the Gen-V platform is available across three different displacements. Efficiency is even further improved with an all-new weight-saving cylinder block casting, increased compression ratios, and oil-jet piston cooling. Engineered for some of the most powerful on-road vehicles in the GM lineup, including the current-generation Corvette Stingray, Gen-V Series engines are then marinized for the specific demands of on-water applications.
Gen-V Series engines from GM Marine Engine Technology are used by Nautique, Centurion, MasterCraft, and other high-end boat brands.
