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-litre V6 turbo-diesel engine is now more powerful and refined, and approximately 20 kg lighter.* The unit generates 180 kW (245 hp) and maximum torque of 550 Nm. The sprint to 100 km/h requires just 7.6 seconds. Top speed is 220 km/h. Fuel consumption now comes in at just 7.2 l/100 km in the combined test cycle.
Direct fuel injection comes courtesy of a common-rail injection system. The piezoelectric injectors enable multiple injections at a pressure of up to 2,000 bar, ensuring optimum distribution of the air/fuel mixture – for improved dynamics.
The turbocharger on the Cayenne Diesel features Variable Turbine Geometry (VTG). Combined with optimised channelling of the intake air, it enhances the charging 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 centre differential transmits the car’s power to all four wheels with optimum precision and control.
Available as a no-cost option, the 100-litre fuel tank increases the range to well over 1,000 km while keeping the engine rpm and noise levels low.
The Cayenne Diesel: proof that a 100-metre sprinter can also run a marathon.
