Porsche Macan will get a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine with more than 370 hp

Article by Christian A., on June 12, 2012

According to the latest reports from Automotive News, the new Porsche Macan small crossover will receive a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine delivering more than 370 hp. The new engine is based on the naturally aspirated 3.6-liter engine in the Cayenne and Panamera, which delivers 300 hp and 295 pounds-feet of torque.

Still, the Porsche Macan will be the first vehicle to receive a direct-injection gasoline engine planned for service in a range of Porsches. The engine was tested before in prototype mules of Audi Q5 and Porsche Cayenne. Moreover, the new powerplant will sit longitudinally and provide drive through an Audi-sourced torque-sensing all-wheel-drive system.

Regarding the market, Porsche is confident that the Macan will have plenty of customers as the Audi Q5, BMW X3, Cadillac SRX, Infiniti EX, Mercedes-Benz GLK or the Range Rover Evoque don’t offer performance versions. The new Macan will hit the dealerships next year and will be produced alongside the Cayenne and Panamera in Germany.
