BRP's Evinrude E-TEC outboard engines ranked highest in customer satisfaction with two-stroke outboard engines in the U.S. in the J.D. Power and Associates 2009 Marine Engine Competitive Information Study. This is the third time that Evinrude E-TEC engines have been ranked the highest in customer satisfaction in the U.S. in the study and comes during the brand's 100-year anniversary celebration. Previous high honors were awarded to Evinrude for two-stroke direct-injection engines in 2003 and in 2007, when Evinrude ranked the highest in a tie.
BRP's Evinrude outboard engines registered a 17-point gain in scoring over last year's study, which moved the brand to the top position this year. Since the 2005 study, Evinrude has improved by 59 points overall.
The E-TEC lineup now includes 110 engine models from 25 to 300 horsepower and all are 2010 EPA compliant. Engines are available at Evinrude dealerships worldwide.
