On sale here in September, the 2013 Porsche Cayenne Diesel is fitted with a 3.0-liter V6 turbo-diesel engine that cranks out 240 horsepower but a stout 406 lb-ft of peak torque from just 1,750 rpm, sufficient to let it run 7.2-second 0 to 60-mph sprints and hit 135 mph while still being able to tow up to 7,716 pounds and travel 740 miles on a single tank of fuel. The 50-state Cayenne oil-burner uses selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology to meet current Tier 2 BIN5 emissions requirements. Pricing for the 2013 Porsche Cayenne Diesel will start $56,725.
