The second-generation Cayenne is more dynamic, powerful and comfortable. Inside and out, this SUV is unmistakably a Porsche. Whether driving off-road, towing a heavy load, or simply driving for the pleasure of it, the Cayenne is ready to perform.
Its 3.6-liter, naturally aspirated V6 engine features Direct Fuel Injection (DFI), variable-valve timing on both inlet and exhaust, and a variable-resonance intake manifold—for a generous output and excellent fuel economy. In other words: We have enhanced the performance, while significantly lowering the weight. The figures speak for themselves: peak torque of 295 lb.-ft., output of 300 horsepower, a top track speed of 142 mph, and the ability to accelerate from 0–60 mph in 7.1 seconds with the manual transmission (7.4 seconds with Tiptronic S).
Delivering this power to the road efficiently, Porsche Traction Management (PTM) combines active all-wheel drive with an electronically variable multiplate clutch, Automatic Brake Differential (ABD), and Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR). Together they enable the perfect distribution of drive torque to all four wheels, whether on long straights, through tight corners, or on surfaces with different friction coefficients—for dynamic handling and increased traction. Drive is transmitted through a high-performance six-speed manual transmission, which ensures progress through the gears with optimal performance and efficiency.Browse Our New Cayenne Inventory
