The Porsche Cayenne is one of the most popular luxury SUVs on the market, combining performance, comfort, and style in a versatile package. For 2024, Porsche has given the Cayenne a major update with a new look, new features, and new powertrains.
The most noticeable change is the exterior design, which adopts a more streamlined and elegant shape than the previous model. The front end features a larger grille, slimmer headlights, and a more sculpted hood. The side profile has a more pronounced shoulder line and a lower roofline that slopes down to the rear. The back end has a full-width LED light bar that connects the taillights, a signature element of modern Porsches.
The interior of the 2024 Porsche Cayenne is also revamped with a more minimalist and digital approach. The dashboard has a large 12.3-inch touchscreen that controls most of the functions, while the center console has touch-sensitive buttons instead of physical ones. The instrument cluster is also digital, with a configurable display that shows various information. The cabin is spacious and luxurious, with high-quality materials and plenty of options to customize it.
The 2024 Cayenne offers a range of powertrains to suit different needs and preferences. The base model has a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine that produces 335 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque. The Cayenne S has a twin-turbocharged 2.9-liter V6, making 434 hp and 405 lb-ft of torque. The Cayenne GTS has a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 that delivers 453 hp and 457 lb-ft of torque. The Porsche Cayenne Turbo has a more powerful version of the same engine, with 541 hp and 568 lb-ft of torque.
The Cayenne also has two hybrid models: the Cayenne E-Hybrid and the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid. The E-Hybrid combines the 3.0-liter V6 with an electric motor for a total output of 455 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. The Turbo S E-Hybrid pairs the 4.0-liter V8 with an electric motor for a whopping 670 hp and 663 lb-ft of torque.
All models come with an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. They also have adaptive air suspension, active roll stabilization, rear-axle steering, and Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control as standard or optional features.
The 2024 Porsche Cayenne is fast, agile, efficient, and eco-friendly. The hybrid models can travel up to 30 miles on electric power alone, thanks to a larger battery pack that has increased from 14.1 kWh to 17.9 kWh. The Cayenne also has various driving modes that optimize performance or efficiency depending on the situation.
The 2024 Porsche Cayenne is expected to go on sale in late 2023 or early 2024, with prices starting from $68,850 for the base model and going up to $165,750 for the Turbo S E-Hybrid. The Porsche Cayenne is one of the best-selling models for Porsche, and this update should keep it competitive in the crowded luxury SUV segment.
