405 fl/lb out of a NA 3L.

Is it one of those blu-tec motors that requires special sauce?

Looks like it.

"While Autoblog has enjoyed the European Cayenne Diesel extensively overseas (we have done 140-plus mph on the German Autobahn without breaking a sweat), North Americans are getting a new diesel-powered V6 that has been engineered to meet Tier 2 BIN5 emissions standards for our domestic marketplace the engine utilizes a urea solution (diesel exhaust fluid, trademarked as AdBlue) to satisfy the EPA."

The turbo may be hidden in the "V". It would almost have to have one with those performance number.

Expect the same 245-horsepower 3.0-liter V-6 turbodiesel engine found in Cayenne Diesels sold overseas to be fitted to local versions. This setup is good for a fuel economy of 32.7 mpg on the slightly less conservative European combined cycle and 0-60 mph times of around 7.6 seconds.

By comparison, the Cayenne S Hybrid, which combines a 333-horsepower supercharged V-6 and 47-horsepower electric motor, takes only 6.1 seconds to cover the same sprint though only returns a fueleconomy of 21 mpg combined.

We'll Get ANOTHER Diesel Cayenne

from link BPDave provided:

"North Americans are going to get their first taste of an oil-burning Porsche this September when the German automaker releases its 2013 Cayenne Diesel. Europeans have been enjoying the Cayenne Diesel since 2009 – it is one of the most popular engine choices for the SUV on the other side of the Pond – but its tailpipe emissions have kept it out of our grasp, until now.

The updated engine is a second-generation turbocharged 3.0-liter V6, rated at 240 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque. Mated to a standard eight-speed automatic transmission, the automaker says it will run to 60 mph in 7.2 seconds and on to a top speed of 135 mph. The Cayenne Diesel is rated to tow a segment-leading 7,716 pounds and boasts a highway range of 740 miles thanks to its 28 mpg highway rating.

While Autoblog has enjoyed the European Cayenne Diesel extensively overseas (we have done 140-plus mph on the German Autobahn without breaking a sweat), North Americans are getting a new diesel-powered V6 that has been engineered to meet Tier 2 BIN5 emissions standards for our domestic marketplace – the engine utilizes a urea solution (diesel exhaust fluid, trademarked as AdBlue) to satisfy the EPA. (We expect the second-generation engine to find its way under the hood of the Volkswagen Touareg TDI in the very near future.)

Arriving later this year, the Cayenne Diesel will carry a base sticker price of $55,750, not including a $975 destination charge."

Everyone keeps saying overcomplicated, welcome to 2012.

Have you seen new mercedes engine? a new powerstroke? It all LOOKS "overcomplicated" but its not like the engineers just want to make it hard to work on.

Everything is there for a reason, the main reason seems to be emissions.

But commonrail direct injection just happens to look like that, that's the way it is.

I know it doesn't look like a OM617 but things have changed since the 70s.

Yes, things have changed since the 70's. You expect that. Especially with the way the EPA makes the diesel engined car makers jump through hoops.

Don't get me wrong, I think the Common Rail Direct Injection system is the way to go for power output and tip top engine tuning on the fly.

We'll just have to develop new skills.
