Porsche Cayenne Diesel
Porsche announced it will offer the Cayenne Diesel in the United States market for the first time beginning with the 2013 model year.
The Cayenne Diesel is powered by a 3.0-liter V6 turbo diesel engine, delivering 240 horsepower and 406 lb. ft. of torque from as low as 1,750 rpm. The result is 0-60 mph acceleration in just 7.2 seconds and a top track speed of 135 mph. The Cayenne Diesel is rated to tow up to 7,716 lbs., can travel up to an estimated 740 miles on a single tank of fuel and is built to meet Tier 2 BIN5 emissions standards using selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology.
The Cayenne Diesel, the first diesel powered vehicle ever offered by Porsche, was originally introduced to the Diesel-dominated European market in 2009. This same clean diesel technology now comes to the United States.
