Porsche Reveals New Cayenne S Diesel for Europe
The new Cayenne S Diesel slots above the regular Cayenne diesel in Porsche’s SUV lineup. The biggest differences between the S and the normal Cayenne Diesel include a much more powerful engine.
The new 4.2-liter eight-cylinder Twin-Turbo V8 engine produces 382 hp and offers a maximum torque of 627 lbs. ft. of torque. The new diesel completes the sprint from zero to 62mph in 5.7 seconds, and its top speed 152 mph.
The new Cayenne S Diesel features PTM active all-wheel drive. This system produces the driving qualities of a rear-wheel drive vehicle – together with all of its benefits in handling and precision. In a sporty, dynamic style of driving, front-wheel drive actions precisely adapted to the driving situation intervene to improve stability and traction. The optional Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) makes this excellent dynamic performance even sportier.
