Porsche Macan Engine Details Leaked
Jalopnik has managed to get their hands on info from a dealer presentation, which suggest two different engines are coming to America, maybe more being available in Europe.
The engines in question are almost certainly V6s, one being a 3.0-liter, the other a 3.6-liter. Porsche has such displacements already, but the intriguing thing is both are supposed to be Bi-Turbos.
The 3.0-liter should be about the same as the one in the Panamera S, where it makes 420 hp. This engine is going into the Macan S, while the 3.6-liter Bi-Turbo is going in the Macan Turbo. We can only assume this car has about 480 hp, so as not to upset the Cayenne market.
Both will come with standard 7-speed PDK and go on sale in 2014, with prices from $52,000 for the S and $75,000 for the Turbo. That-s a big mark-up from the Audi Q5 3.0 TFSI, which starts at $44,400.
