The Porsche Cayenne was until the arrival of the Macan the most popular Porsche model. It continues to outsell the brand’s performance cars and remains the benchmark for premium versatility and uncompromising performance in every situation.
The popularity of the Cayenne can be explained in part by its unwavering Porsche DNA. Porsche proved to both purists and industry pundits that the brand’s unique personality could apply to any type of vehicle when it unveiled the Cayenne two decades ago. Still today, the Cayenne continues to impress its owners, many of them Porsche 718 or 911 owners as well, who find the same driving pleasure and experience behind the wheel of their Cayenne with the added benefit of versatility.
The Porsche Cayenne: Multiple Trims, Multiple Personalities, Zero Compromise
The Porsche Cayenne offers more powertrain and trim options than any direct competitor. These include powerful turbocharged V8 options, two impressive plug-in hybrid powertrains, and an efficient and capable six-cylinder option. Finding the perfect Cayenne for our needs is easy.
The entry-level Porsche Cayenne starts at $79,200 and is powered by a 3.0-litre turbocharged six-cylinder with 335 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque available at just 1,340 rpm. Capable of towing 3,500 kg, this version is a worthy starting point for a luxury mid-size SUV.
The Porsche Cayenne S has a starting price of $96,800 and features a powerful twin-turbo 2.9-litre V6 that sends 434 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque starting at just 2,000 rpm.
Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid and Turbo S E-Hybrid
Porsche has been leading the way in electrification in the luxury automotive field, and the Cayenne E-Hybrid and Turbo S E-Hybrid are perfect examples. The Cayenne E-Hybrid offers over 30 kilometres of all-electric range, and 455 horsepower. The Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid pushes the envelope to new heights, offering the most horsepower of any Cayenne with 670 horsepower. It reaches 100 km/h in just 3.8 seconds.
Buyers looking for the utmost level of Porsche performance can turn to the Cayenne GTS which is powered by a turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 that delivers 453 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of torque. The Cayenne GTS returned with a V8 last year, and delivers an exceptional soundtrack from its quad exhaust, remarkable handling, and exceptional track performance.
The Porsche Cayenne Turbo also features a turbo V8, this time with 541 horsepower. That’s enough to power the Cayenne Turbo to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds, and like the Cayenne and Cayenne S the Turbo can tow 3,500 kg.
Cayenne Turbo GT
Unveiled earlier this year, the Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT is only available as a Coupé trim. Featuring a range of unique and distinct features like a titanium exhaust, race-ready brakes and a 631-horsepower powertrain, the Cayenne Turbo GT blurs the line between versatility, performance, and everyday capability.
