On all Cayenne gas engines, we have used direct fuel injection (DFI) to achieve a significant increase in specific power and torque as well as better fuel economy and lower emissions.*
The Cayenne features a naturally aspirated 3.6-liter V6 engine with direct fuel injection (DFI) and variable valve timing on both inlet and exhaust. The unit delivers 300 hp at 6,300 rpm and maximum torque of 295 lb.-ft. at 3,000 rpm. Maximum top track speed is 142 mph. The car requires 7.1 seconds to reach 60 mph with a manual gearbox.
At the same time, fuel economy has been improved by up to 20 percent.*
