Performance in the 2018 Porsche Cayenne
Looking for a sports car but need something bigger? Why not a sporty luxury SUV? Sure, they might not have the sleek, low-to-the-ground profile that sports cars offer, but when it comes to performance, the measurements are largely the same. Porsche knows all about excellent power and efficiency under the hood. Just take a look at the performance in the 2018 Porsche Cayenne!
We all know that luxury vehicles offer a certain range of aesthetics and quality that the traditional automaker just doesn’t have. Those figures are even more notable when you open up the hood and look at what’s underneath. The Cayenne comes equipped with a 3.0L turbocharged V6 engine for a powerful 335 horsepower and 33 lb-ft of torque. If that sounds tough, you should check out the Cayenne S! for the true performance-seeker, there is a 2.9L twin-turbo V6 engine with 434 horsepower and 405 lb-ft of torque. The Cayenne S, upgraded for 2018, is more powerful yet more fuel-efficient than the previous S trim.
Aside from the engines, there are plenty more performance features to take note of. VarioCam Plus, a system that adjusts the camshafts and valve lift, comes standard in each of these. Efficiency gets a boost thanks to an electrical system recuperation and a start/stop function to preserve fuel for when you’re idling and stuck in traffic. Even the shape of the Cayenne is more than just for good looks. The design is aerodynamic with systems in place that will help you cut through the air by manipulating flaps in the air intakes.
There are many personalization factors that go into the Cayenne, because as you probably know, Porsche is all about getting you what you want without making you take what you don’t.
