The Porsche Macan has received significant improvements in 2022, namely a revised engine lineup, interior and exterior design improvements, more features and technology, and improved dynamics. Porsche revised the Macan family, removing the Turbo model and making the Macan GTS and Macan S more powerful models in the process.
Now, Porsche is introducing a new Macan version which will arrive on the market as a 2023 model. It is the all-new Porsche Macan T, a new version of the Macan that is also the first Porsche SUV to feature the T badge.
The Porsche Macan T will slot between the entry-level Macan and the Macan S. Pricing hasn't been announced just yet, but we can estimate that it will probably start at roughly $65,000. The new Macan T will feature the turbocharged 2 L 4 cylinder engine from the entry Macan which delivers 261 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. This engine will be paired with a dual-clutch seven-speed automatic and of course, all-wheel drive is standard.
Although the new T version shares the same powertrain as the entry-level Macan, it will actually be quicker with a 0-100 km/h time of 6.2 seconds vs 6.4 seconds.
T for Touring
Historically, Porsche T models feature a range of upgrades on the performance front compared to traditional models on which they are based. The 2023 Porsche Macan T will be no different and will offer Porsche Active Suspension Management and the Sport Chrono Package standard. As for the all-wheel drive system, it has been tuned to deliver a stronger rear bias while stiffer anti-roll bars for the Adaptive Air Suspension and a retuned Torque Vectoring Plus system are all standard equipment on the Macan T.
The objective of this revised list of standard features is to deliver a sportier experience, sharper handling, and a more dynamic overall experience behind the wheel. Power is not the focus of a Porsche T model. We saw that with the Porsche 911 T and the Porsche 718 T. The objective of these models is to deliver greater handling and a sportier experience while also being quick off the line. The Porsche Macan T will feature the same overall personality, taking the sharp and agile ride of the traditional Macan and improving on it.
