Diesel vs. V6
To further ignite the raging debate about which one is faster, let's look at the published data from Porsche about the Cayenne. The Cayenne engines and transmissions are very comparable to the 2014 WK2.
Both the V6 and Diesel have 8 speed automatics.
HP: V6 is 300 @ 6300 rpm, Diesel is 240 @ 3500 - 4000 rpm
Torque (lb-ft): V6 is 295 @ 3000 rpm, Diesel is 406 @ 1750 - 2500 rpm
0-60: 7.4 (V6) vs. 7.2 (Diesel)
Top Speed (mph): 142 (V6) vs. 135 (Diesel)
Conclusion: Due to the massive torque of the Diesel, expect it to be faster than the V6 from 0 - 80 mph (approx.). After that, the V6 should be faster, given the higher HP rating (and higher top speed).
The V8 should be much faster than the Diesel.
