2019 Porsche Cayenne: Here It Is


Both the Cayenne and the Cayenne S are set to hit U.S. dealers midway through 2018, starting at $65,700 and $82,900. The base car has the three-liter single-turbo V6 tuned to produce 340 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque, while the S packs a 2.9L twin-turbo V6 making 440 horsepower and 406 lb-ft of torque. Both come standard with a fully variable all-wheel drive system and a new 8-speed version of Porsche’s Tiptronic S gearbox, but as usual, you’ll want to spend some extra on Stuttgart’s rather tempting options. Of which there are many.

Porsche says the third-generation Cayenne can be up to 143 lbs. lighter than the previous car, which may not sound like a lot, mostly because it isn’t. Yet when it comes to large SUVs with six-cylinder turbos up front, every little bit helps, starting with the 22 lbs. saved by a lithium-ion polymer battery. The remaining 121 lbs. of the Cayenne’s weight shredding comes from an excessive use of aluminum. Almost the entire exterior is made of the alloy, just like the floorpan, the car’s front section and “virtually all the chassis components.” Read more about the 2019 Porsche Cayenne...
