Porsche will equip the Cayenne with a 3.0L V6 turbodiesel engine with 240hp (176kW) and 405lb-ft (550Nm) sourced from Audi. Full consumption in the big SUV is rated at an impressive 9.3L/100km (25mpg) and CO2 emissions of 244g/km.
The new model will first be offered in Europe and there are plans to launch in other markets by the end of next year. It will be equipped with the current Tiptronic-S automatic gearbox as standard, and will be priced from €47,250.
To reduce its carbon footprint and improve the fuel-economy of its some of its vehicles, Porsche is also developing new hybrid technology with sister brand Volkswagen that’ll be available as an option on its next-gen Cayenne SUV and Panamera four-door coupe. The hybrid powertrain will consume less than the latest diesel model and will be launched onto the market at the end of the decade.
