2013 Porsche Cayenne Diesel
Porsche said today it will offer the Cayenne Diesel in the United States market for the first time beginning with the 2013 model year.
The 2013 Porsche Cayenne Diesel is on display at the 2012 New York Auto Show along with the third-generation 2013 Boxster.
The 2013 Porsche Cayenne Diesel is powered by a modern 3.0-liter V6 turbo diesel engine with selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology. From a stop, it reaches 60 mph in 7.2 seconds, and achieves top track speed of 135 mph.
Based on preliminary internal estimates, the Cayenne Diesel will achieve a rating of 20 mpg city / 28 mpg highway / 23 mpg combined on its US EPA label. Final figures will be confirmed closer to the start of sales later in 2012.
The 2013 Cayenne Diesel features compacted graphite iron engine construction for lower weight, low fuel consumption and exhaust emissions, as well as improved engine acoustics and low vibrations for smooth engine running.
The Cayenne Diesel produces 240-hp and a maximum torque of 406 lb.-ft. Thus, it is ideal for sporty acceleration, driving long distances, towing heavy trailer loads or everyday city driving.
The 2013 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, joining the Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne S Hybrid and Cayenne Turbo models.
The 2013 Porsche Cayenne Diesel has a base MSRP price of $55,750, not including a $975 destination charge.
