NY International Auto Show - 2013 Porsche Cayenne Diesel
Car manufacturers are knee deep in designing more efficient and talk worthy cars for 2013 and high on the most anticipated list already is the 2013 Porsche Cayenne Diesel, that was presented at NY International Auto Show this year. Of course Porsche requires little introduction period, but they have definitely upped their game along with other heavy hitters in the motor world.The newest model of the Porsche is the first ever diesel powered vehicle by them offered in the United States and is slated to get about 28 highway miles per gallon. Porsche is offering this vehicle with a turbo diesel V6 that affords the driver all wheel drive and 240 horse power. This supped up SUV can go from zero to 60 in roughly 7.2 seconds and hit 135 miles per hour with ease, leaving your neighbors impressed and in the dust.
Though Europeans have been driving this model since early 2009, the U.S. is excitedly anticipating this oil burning edition. Press releases are gawking at its new and improved engine functions which include a 3.0 liter V6 and 406 pound torque. This new edition also meets the standards of the Tier 2-BIN 5 emission standards which the older model did not. With a base model price tag of $55, 750 (price will increase with specialized options) and this is with the easel engine, it is still priced competitively with other noteworthy 2013 vehicle debuts. Without the diesel engine a buyer can still expect to pay at the higher end of $48,000.
Base models will include 18” alloyed wheels, driver and passenger heated seats, and a voice activated navigator system.
Specialized options will include 8 speed w/OD transmissions and ABS and driveline traction control. And of course there are additional packages that can be ordered if buyers wish to individualize their wheels. Their Brushed Aluminum Interior package is available for $995 and includes alloy on the doors and dashboard as well as a much coveted Air Suspension with Self Leveling and Adjustment package with electronic controls for an additional $3,980.
Currently this model is being offered in nine exterior colors including Jet Green Metallic and Metallic Black. Interior color options include Black and Umber.
