About the Porsche Cayenne

Building on the proven formula that began in 2003, the Porsche Cayenne aims to push performance boundaries even further through technologies that significantly improve on-road performance and comfort. Drivers will have their choice of a variety of individual Cayenne models which are engineered to meet the needs of the most discerning luxury SUV buyers. The Cayenne is now more athletic both in appearance and driving performance thanks to bold styling cues and engineering developments. To complement its modern exterior, the interior carries many of the same design cues and technologies that made their debut on the Porsche Taycan. From paved tarmac to off-road trails, the Cayenne continues to set the standard for the modern midsize luxury SUV through innovative in-vehicle technology, evocative styling, and outstanding performance capabilities.


What the Critics Say

“Porsche describes this upgrade as “one of the most extensive” in the company’s history. Porsche’s heritage comes from the sportier side of the automotive world, so it has made the Cayenne one of the few luxury midsize SUVs to bring genuine driver enjoyment. For those with the funds and the fascination, the new Cayenne is a must-consider.” — Kelley Blue Book

“The Porsche Cayenne has a knack for defying expectations; the midsize luxury SUV’s acceleration and handling defy its considerable curb weight. For the 2024 model year, things are only going to get better. A range of newly updated engines should contribute to the Cayenne’s entertaining driving dynamics ( . . . ) We also dig the muscular styling and tidy but modern interior design that Porsche added as part of the refresh.” — MotorTrend


What’s New for 2024

This year, the Porsche Cayenne receives an exciting refresh both inside and out. On the exterior, shoppers will notice redesigned front and rear fascias, athletically sculpted fenders, and new HD Matrix Design LED Headlights. Perhaps the most significant update comes in the form of the redesigned dashboard inside the Cayenne. This includes stunning curved touchscreen displays including an optional dedicated passenger-side screen. Buyers will also be impressed by the upgraded performance options including a more powerful standard 3.0-liter turbo V6 and the highly-anticipated return of the twin-turbo V8 for Cayenne S models. New exterior colors and revised suspension tuning are two other examples of key changes for the new 2024 Porsche Cayenne.

Porsche Cayenne Interior

Interior

Debuting first on the Taycan, the Porsche Driver Experience further improves the infotainment experience for drivers inside the Porsche Cayenne. The dashboard of the Cayenne is a true technological gem featuring a 12.6-inch digital instrument cluster, 12.3-inch central Porsche Communication Management (PCM), and even an optional 10.9-inch display passenger-side display. Passengers now have the option to stream content and access separate infotainment controls without interrupting the driver. With the gear selector relocated dashboard along with manually adjustable air vent controls and a haptic volume knob in the center stack, ergonomics and comfort have been significantly bolstered compared to the prior generation. An optional BOSE® Surround Sound system delivers concert-like audio quality inside the Cayenne as well. Select the optional optimized head-up display to monitor key drive information without taking your eyes off the road.

Porsche Cayenne Design

Design

While maintaining a strong visual connection to its predecessors, the Cayenne adopts eye-catching design elements that hint at how this generation builds upon its legacy. Enlarged air intakes in the front fascia along with horizontal light edges create a wider, more athletic appearance. Cargo area volume with the rear seats raised provides an impressive 27.2 cubic feet of cargo capacity for all of your essential items. Standard HD Matrix Design LED headlights enhance the visual appeal of the Cayenne while providing illumination with exceptional clarity. Sleek alloy wheels ranging from 20 to 22 inches in size provide the Cayenne with a dominant stance on the road.

Porsche Cayenne Driver Assistance

Driver Assistance

Another advantage of the Porsche Cayenne is its extensive list of driver assistance technologies, engineered to support and protect the driver. Standard Active Speed Limit Assist incorporates Traffic Sign Recognition when engaging cruise control. Going one step further, optional Adaptive Cruise Control includes Evasion Assist which can help detect and support the driver in an emergency obstruction avoidance maneuver. Turn Assist tracks oncoming traffic when making a left-hand turn at speeds up to 6 MPH and brings the vehicle to a standstill if the potential for a collision is determined. Available Porsche InnoDrive has been bolstered Active Lane Keep and Intersection Assist, providing a helping hand in traffic jams or on highways. In total, these cutting-edge features help keep you one step ahead of danger behind the wheel of your Porsche Cayenne.
