With the Cayenne, we’ve always followed unorthodox routes. Such as discovering whether it’s possible to incorporate a diesel engine into a Porsche. Our answer: yes.
The 3.0-litre V6 turbodiesel is powerful, economical and environmentally friendly. It is also extremely efficient. It has direct fuel injection using the common rail injection system with piezo-controlled injectors. Its very short switching times and precision-controlled injection quantities allow several injections per cycle and therefore smooth combustion.
To supply the fuel, the injectors are directly connected with the common rail of each cylinder bank via high pressure lines. A separate high pressure pump generates an injection pressure of up to 1,800 bar. It adapts to the operating conditions of the engine to ensure a good mixture formation, high power, low emissions and low fuel consumption right from the start.
A variable turbo geometry supports the turbocharging. The incoming exhaust gas is deflected by electronically controlled moving vanes onto the turbine wheel to achieve the conditions of both a ‘small’ turbo and a ‘large’ turbo. This means optimum gas flow conditions at all times.
The modern emission control system uses exhaust gas recirculation, an oxidation catalyst and diesel particulate filter. The catalytic converter on the new Cayenne Diesel is located close to the engine. Operating temperature is soon reached so that emissions are kept low. A diesel particulate filter also removes soot particles from the exhaust gases, and it is regenerated automatically and imperceptibly. The new Cayenne Diesel meets the requirements of the Euro 4 emissions standard.
The Cayenne Diesel: green performance. Typically Porsche.
