Boasting outstanding performance and efficiency, the Cayenne Diesel is ideal for longer journeys – offering high levels of torque, while fuel consumption remains low.
Its 3.0-liter V6 turbo-diesel engine is now more powerful. The unit generates 240 hp and maximum torque of 406 lb.-ft.. The sprint to 60 mph requires just 7.2 seconds. Top track speed is 135 mph.
Direct fuel injection comes courtesy of a common-rail injection system. The piezoelectric injectors enable multiple injections at a pressure of up to 29,007 psi, ensuring optimum distribution of the air/fuel mixture – for improved dynamics.
The turbocharger on the Cayenne Diesel features Variable Turbine Geometry (VTG). Combined with optimized channeling of the intake air, it enhances the forced induction effect, thereby generating a higher output and impressive torque, even at low engine speeds.
The standard eight-speed Tiptronic S includes gearshift controls on the steering wheel. Transmitting the high torque of the Cayenne Diesel smoothly and effectively, the eight gears are designed to facilitate both economical driving with low fuel consumption and performance driving with emphatic acceleration.
Porsche Traction Management (PTM) permanent all-wheel drive with self-locking center differential transmits the car’s power to all four wheels with optimum precision and control.
The Cayenne Diesel: proof that a 100-feet sprinter can also run a marathon.
