What the Critics Say

“Now in its third generation, the Cayenne continues to truly be the Porsche of midsize crossovers. This SUV delivers the distinct aesthetic, thrilling performance, and posh interior associated with the Porsche brand with the versatility of a midsize luxury SUV, all with little compromise.” — Kelley Blue Book

“There are few vehicles — high-performance luxury SUVs or otherwise — that are as well-rounded as the Porsche Cayenne. Whether you’re looking for an SUV that’s practical or slinky — or fast or fuel-efficient (or all four!) — there’s a Cayenne variant to suit your needs.” — Edmunds


What’s New for 2023

Only a handful of small changes have been made to the successful Porsche Cayenne for the 2023 model year. Both wireless Android Auto and native Spotify integration have been added to the standard PCM infotainment system of the Cayenne. Changes to the exterior color lineup of the Cayenne is highlighted by the replacement of Jet Black Metallic with a new Chromite Black Metallic and the discontinuation of Chalk. Besides those small revisions, the Porsche Cayenne returns as one of the most coveted luxury SUVs available on the market.


Porsche Cayenne Features

Porsche Cayenne

Performance

The Cayenne is powered by a 3.0-liter single-turbo V6 making 335 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque, enabling it to accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 5.9 seconds (or 5.6 seconds with the optional Sport Chrono package). The Cayenne S uses a 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 that makes 434 horsepower and 405 lb-ft of torque. It can accelerate to 60 mph from a standstill in just 4.9 seconds (or 4.6 seconds with the optional Sport Chrono package) and continue on toward a top track speed of 164 mph. A responsive eight-speed Tiptronic S transmission is included as standard equipment across the Cayenne line. Fully variable Porsche Traction Management (PTM) all-wheel drive is standard on all Cayenne models. Porsche Surface Coated Brake (PSCB) technology offers a finish that increases friction values while reducing wear and brake dust.

Porsche Cayenne Interior

Interior

First employed in the 918 Spyder, the Cayenne features an available Sport Chrono Package with individually configurable modes. The latest version of Porsche Communication Management (PCM), adapted from the interface found in the state-of-the-art all-electric Taycan, adds a new level of connectivity, including Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration. This cutting-edge infotainment hub includes a massive 12.3-inch full-HD touchscreen display with intuitive controls. PCM also offers the ability for a great degree of customization by saving preferred settings and menu layouts including up to six individual profiles. The highlight of this newest version of PCM is its user-friendly nature, with natural voice control activated simply by saying “Hey Porsche.” Sound systems from Bose® and Burmester® provide a concert-like listening experience in the Cayenne.

Porsche Cayenne Design

Design

While maintaining a strong visual connection to its predecessors, the Cayenne adopts bold design elements that hint at how this generation builds upon its legacy. Enlarged air intakes in the front fascia along with crisp horizontal light edges create a wider, more athletic appearance. Cargo area volume with the rear seats raised has increased by almost 15 percent over the previous generation to 27.19 cubic feet. The available Porsche Dynamic Light System (PLDS) or LED Matrix Beam headlights enhance the visual appeal of the Cayenne while providing illumination with exceptional clarity.

Cayenne Turbo

Cayenne Turbo

The third-generation Cayenne Turbo raises the bar for performance in the segment with a twin-turbo four-liter V8 engine that delivers 541 horsepower. Improved driving dynamics are a direct result of innovations which include high-performance Porsche Surface Coated Brake (PSCB) technology, three-chamber air suspension, and staggered tire sizes. Representing gains over the previous generation, the Cayenne Turbo can rocket from 0 – 60 in just 3.7 seconds with the optional Sport Chrono Package on its way to a top track speed of 177 MPH. 18-way sport seats, seatbacks with integrated headrests, and standard heating functions for all outboard seats help ensure both drivers and passengers can enjoy unparalleled comfort and support.
