Porsche Cayenne makes U.S. debut
Having premiered in August, the Cayenne has landed in the U.S., in time for the folks at the LA Auto Show. The third-generation Cayenne combines even more of the typical Porsche performance with excellent everyday practicality. Despite its extended standard equipment, the Cayenne is up to 65 kilograms lighter thanks to its intelligent lightweight construction.
The two available six-cylinder engines; Cayenne’s 340 hp, three-liter turbo engine delivers 40 hp more than the previous model; and the 2.9-liter V6 biturbo engine in the Cayenne S, which reaches speeds of up to 265 km/h, brings it up to 440 hp, an increase of 20 hp. Equipped with the optional Sport Chrono Package, the new Cayenne S accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in less than five seconds. The Cayenne S has a top speed of 265 km/h and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in under five seconds. Its powerful turbo engines, new eight-speed Tiptronic S gearbox, new chassis systems and innovative Porsche Advanced Cockpit display and control concept with total connectivity will take both sport and comfort to the next level.
The Cayenne Turbo has been added to the mix, as well . It comes with a four-liter V8 biturbo engine, paired to an eight-speed Tiptronic S transmission to churn out 404 kW (550 hp) and a maximum torque of 770 Nm.
The new Cayenne is based heavily on the iconic 911 sports car and for the first time, the SUV features mixed tyres and rear-axle steering. In addition, the on-road capabilities are further improved by active all-wheel drive as standard, Porsche 4D Chassis Control, three-chamber air suspension, the Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) electronic roll stabilization system and new, high-performance Porsche Surface Coated Brake (PSCB).
