Yesterday, Porsche announced local pricing and specifications for the new Cayenne SUV, due to land locally in the middle of this year.
The range kicks off with the base Cayenne, which costs $116,300 plus on road costs. It is powered by a 3.0L turbocharged V6 with produces 250kW of power and 450Nm of torque. It can hit 100km/h in 6.1 seconds (5.9 with the Sport Chrono package) thanks to an 8-speed Tiptronic S automatic and all-wheel-drive.
Standard features include a new 12.3 inch PCM infotainment screen, two 7-inch displays surrounding the rev counter known as the Porsche Advanced Cockpit, a 360 degree camera, front and rear parking sensors, lane-change assist, adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, LED headlights, AEB and heat insulating glass. Hardly a short list.
Options include the aforementioned Sport Chrono package, rear blinds, Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (now an 48V electric anti-roll system from the Bentayga & Q7), four wheel steering and more yet to be announced.
The next step in the range is the Cayenne S, priced from $155,100 plus on-roads. It is powered by a 2.9L twin turbo V6 (a familiar powertrain within the Volkswagen Group, cough cough) which generates 324kW of power and 550Nm of torque. 0-100 is covered in 5.1 seconds (or 4.9 with the Sport Chrono package), with a top speed of 265km/h. It gains all of the standard equipment of the base Cayenne, plus a panormaic sunroof.
The range caps off with the $239,400 Cayenne Turbo, headlined by a 4.0L twin turbo V8 that develops 404kW of power and 770Nm of torque. It can hit 100km/h in just 4.1 seconds (3.9s with the Sport Chrono package), on to a top speed of 286km/h. Equipment wise, over the Cayenne S the Turbo recieves 4-zone climate control, ambient cabin lighting, seat ventilation, a 710W Bose speaker system, 21-inch wheels and 18-way front sport seats.
