The 2024 Porsche Cayenne has been spotted during an ad shoot campaign. Targeting an April launch, Porsche is finally updating the popular which was unveiled back in August 2017. However, this is just a facelift and not a full-blown all-new model.
What’s new in the 2024 Porsche Cayenne?
For this facelift, Porsche had redesigned the bumpers, hood, fenders and the lights. The Herman carmaker has also refreshed the car by offering new color options along with different wheel designs.
Porsche has also equipped the car with HD-Matrix LED headlamps, a dual-chamber air suspension and claims to have tested the prototypes in rough conditions across the world.
Coming to the insides, the car will get a 12.6-inch curved digital instrument cluster along with a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system. This is carried over from the parts bin of the 911 and the Taycan. Furthermore, Porsche is also offering an in-dash, 10.9-inch display for the passenger as an option. Other new bits inside the Porsche Cayenne include a bigger start/stop button and digital control for the HVAC.
Do note that Cayenne is an important vehicle for Porsche. In 2022, the carmaker sold 95,604 units, making it the highest volume Porsche product. Also, the cheaper Macan is selling 10 percent lesser by volume despite being a more affordable vehicle.
Powertrain of the 2024 Porsche Cayenne
Porsche has bumped up the power numbers across the range. The base 3.0-litre V6 now puts out 14 HP / 37 lb.ft. more. The total number for this variant reads as 349 HP and 369 lb.ft.
The Cayenne S meanwhile loses out the 3.9-litre V6 and Porsche has instead equipped it with a 4.0-litre V8. With twin turbos. This motor generates 468 HP and 442 lb.ft.
The top of the line Turbo GT meanwhile will come in a coupe avatar only with a 651 HP / 627 lb.ft.
Porsche has also equipped the plug-in models with a larger 25.9 kWh batteries compared to the earlier 17.9 kWh units. Porsche has also equipped them with a 11 kW onboard charger to help things. THat said, the E-hybrids gain 8 HP but lose out on 37 lb.ft. of torque. This should not effect the car’s performance by much honestly.
