Volvo Penta D4-225 is an in-line 4-cylinder, 3.7-liter diesel engine using common-rail fuel injection, double overhead camshafts, and turbo. This contributes to outstanding torque during acceleration.
Immediate response and high performance is matched by lower amounts of noise and vibrations further reduced by the balance shaft and the optimized engine suspension.
Compact and robust
The engine is extremely compact for its large swept volume. The rigid cast-iron cylinder block and cylinder head, balance shaft, and exactly controlled fuel injection gives excellent onboard comfort.
