S 4.2 Diesel - when did it become EU6?

Hi,
Although we are serial Porsche owners, we are new to Cayennes. We are thinking of looking for an S 4.2 Diesel but were curious to find out when they changed from EU5 to EU6 emissions rating? We would be looking at a 2014 onwards model.
Can anyone enlighten me? The car info websites like Parkers seem to just lump them in one class or the other.
TIA.

According to the RAC
If your car was registered on or after 1 September 2015 or the model was approved on or after 1 September 2014 it should meet the Euro 6 standard. 
However, this is not guaranteed and to be sure you should check with your vehicle's manufacturer.
The Jaguar website explains that: "Individual vehicles already on sale that were built by, and dispatched from, the manufacturer before 1st June 2015 can continue to be sold until 1st September 2016".
This in effect means that a car sold before 1st September 2016 may still have a Euro 5 engine, hence why it is important to double check with the manufacturer to be certain.
I suspect the cayenne was when they installed addblu But simple answer is to check the V5 or check online

My experience with E-class Merc diesels is that they became EU6 when the Ad-Blue systems were added, having been EU5 before. They were badged differently and had different power outputs, so it is easy to tell which is which.
We don't want to buy a Cayenne unless it is EU6, so by the sound of it, we may need to check each car before we consider it.

I have a 2015 end 4.2D but with no Ad blue tank. I think the Ad blue tanks were limited to 3.0D engines and not to 4.2 Did 4.2 engines get ad blue tanks in the US? Im in Sweden. I have no clue whether here the SW mandate recall happened or not as i moved to Sweden this year itself.

I don't believe the 4.2D was ever Euro6 compliant, unlike the 3.0D, my 2016 and 2018 3.0Ds both had AdBlu and Euro6 compliant. I think they just stopped making the V8 in 2016 or 2017.

Hi
Just received another letter dated 16Th March reference my 2017 Cayenne S 4.2 Diesel software upgrade. Due to COVID I never got the software installed but this letter states that the software upgrade is mandatory and is a Vehicle Safety Recall which is monitored by the DVSA.
For your info the letter also states my 2017 Cayenne S Diesel is Euro 6 compliant.My Cayenne has the AdBlue container in the spare wheel compartment.

Great inputs, that means it did become EU6 with adblue and some other trickery they did.

Hi, 
 
I have one (Euro 5) first registered 13/11/14. 
 
From memory I read there was only a narrow window of sales for the facelift Euro 5 version of 6 months.
 
I deliberately looked for one of these because there were comments that the exhaust tone was very different (better) due to there being 1 less cat and also because of the service replacement cost for the adblue tank after 5 years.
 
Everyone comments on the superb V8 exhaust tone.

My facelift Sep 2015 EU5 V8 4.2D sounds awesome i believe for a Diesel. The only worry i have is EU5 diesels being banned from driving in certain parts of Sweden where i live in next few years. Adding Ad-Blue trickery i hope will never be a retrofit option.
