Porsche Macan to Get No 4-Cylinder Engines In US

Porsche has been talking up its new small SUV called the Macan for a while. The car will land as a 2015 model, probably later in 2014. In Europe, the Macan will have several turbocharged gasoline and diesel 4-cylinder engines as options according to reports. Car & Driver reports that Porsche has now indicated that those 4-cylinder engines will not be coming to the US.

Instead, the engines available in the US will include a twin turbo 3.0L gas V6 engine as standard. The base engine will reportedly be a 3.0L turbo V6. That V6 engine will reportedly produce 258 hp in the Macan S diesel. The diesel turbo six will also reportedly have 428 lb-ft of torque.

The diesel-powered Macan is also expected to be the cheaper version in the US coming in at under $50000. The reason the four-cylinder engines aren't coming to the US is said to be fear of costing sister brand Audi sales of its popular 4-cylinder Q5 SUV. The majority of units sold of that vehicle reportedly use a 2.0L turbo four.

The diesel engine in the Macan for the US will be the same engine used in the Cayenne diesel and other audio models. The diesel is expected to deliver about 24 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway in Macan form.
