Porsche fanatics, hang on to your defibrilators. The oil-burning Porsche SUV bastard spawn known as the Cayenne Diesel is coming to America, and it will be priced fairly reasonably.
At $55,770, the Diesel is nearly $10,000 less than a Cayenne S, but about $7,000 more than a Cayenne V6. It’s also nearly $1,000 less than a BMW X5 35d but $5,770 more than a Mercedes ML350 BlueTec.
The 3.0-liter V6 will put out 240 horsepower and 406 lb-ft of torque,with a 0-60 time of 7.6 seconds. A 7,716 lbs towing capacity, along with fuel economy ratings of 20/28/23 mpg round out the package.
