2015 Porsche Cayenne

Buyer's Guide

NEW FOR 2015:

-Updated styling

-New twin-turbo V6 for Cayenne S

-S Hybrid becomes plug-in S E-Hybrid with more power

Porsche's Cayenne crossover is refreshed for 2015 with cosmetic updates and a new turbocharged engine for the S trim level. That powerplant is a 3.6L twin-turbo V6 that delivers 420 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque–20 hp and 37 lb-ft more than last year's 4.8L V8.

For this year, Porsche has dropped the base model and the top-end Turbo S, leaving four trims. The Cayenne diesel uses the same 3.0L turbodiesel V6 as last year, with 240 hp and 406 lb-ft. S E-Hybrid trim, beyond gaining plug-in charging functionality, gets more power, now with 416 hp and 435 lb-ft when the 3.0L supercharged V6 and electric motor work together. The Cayenne S gets the aforementioned twin-turbo V6, and the Turbo once again uses a twin-turbo 4.8L V8 delivering 520 hp and 553 lb-ft, which works out to 20 hp and 37 lb-ft more than last year's model.

With the base model on hiatus, so does the six-speed manual transmission take a break, so that all 2015 Cayennes use the eight-speed automatic transmission; as before, all are all-wheel drivers.

Standard kit in all models includes a universal audio interface with auxiliary and USB inputs, Bluetooth, rain-sensing wipers, heated side mirrors, cruise control, programmable power tailgate, navigation, partial leather seating, eight-way power adjustment for front seats, climate controlled glove box, bi-Xenon headlights, LED daytime running lights, automatic headlights, LED taillights, driver and front passenger knee airbags, rear-seat side airbags, 18-inch wheels, and tire pressure monitoring.

Cayenne S and S E-Hybrid trims are similarly equipped, but add 19-inch wheels and front and rear park assist.

Turbo models get upgraded brakes, load-levelling and height-adjustable air suspension with Porsche Active Suspension Management, Bose 14-speaker stereo, satellite radio, full leather seating and leather-trimmed dash, adaptive front sport seats, and an Alcantara headliner and brushed aluminum trim.

Awsome Car!
This is a car drivers wet dream! Everything about the performance and handling of the vehicle makes others pale in comparison. The attention to detail and finish is excellent, as well as the quality of materials...so what that the Navigation system doesn't compare to a Garmin...if you get lost, who cares! Its a pleasure to be driving around in this truck!

2006 Porsche Cayenne

Trim: Base 6 Cyl
by Papparaz on 11-04-2012
Cayenne V6
A pleasure to drive. SUV with car-like handling. Comfortable on long trips. Large gas tank with 900km range. Can tow 7700 lbs.The V6 is underpowered for the vehicle weight but the tiptronic with manual shift allows the driver to gear down if more power is needed. Cold weather starts include catalyst warm up which causes rough idle. That is not very impressive for such a high end vehicle. $500 oil change is outrageous even though it is only yearly.
