About the 2022 Porsche Cayenne

Building on the proven formula that began in 2003, the 2022 Porsche Cayenne aims to push performance boundaries even further through new technologies that significantly improve on-road performance and comfort. Drivers will have their choice of five distinctive 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 new styling cues and engineering developments. To complement its modern exterior, the interior carries many of the same design cues and new technologies that made their debut on the 2017 Porsche Panamera.

Porsche Cayenne Features

Porsche Cayenne


The 2022 Cayenne is powered by a 3.0-liter single-turbo V6 making 335 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque, enabling it to accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 5.9 seconds (or 5.6 seconds with the optional Sport Chrono package). The Cayenne S uses a 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 that makes 434 horsepower and 405 lb-ft of torque. It can accelerate to 60 mph from a standstill in just 4.9 seconds (or 4.6 seconds with the optional Sport Chrono package) and continue on toward a top track speed of 164 MPH. A responsive eight-speed Tiptronic S transmission is included as standard equipment across the Cayenne line. Fully variable Porsche Traction Management (PTM) all-wheel drive is standard on all Cayenne models. Porsche Surface Coated Brake (PSCB) technology offers a finish which increases friction values while reducing wear and brake dust.

Porsche Cayenne Interior


First employed in the 918 Spyder, the 2022 Cayenne features a redeveloped Sport Chrono Package with individually configurable modes. The latest version of Porsche Communication Management (PCM) adds a new level of connectivity. This advanced infotainment system includes a massive 12.3-inch full-HD touchscreen display with intuitive controls, and is based on the newest PCM interface first fitted to the cutting-edge, all-electric Porsche Taycan. Now, this latest technology upgrade is standard in all versions of the Porsche Cayenne. Emphasis was placed on ease of use, including natural voice control, activated by simply saying “Hey Porsche.” Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration is also standard. PCM also offers the ability for a great degree of customization by saving preferred settings and menu layouts including up to six individual profiles. New sound systems from Bose® and Burmester® provide a concert-like listening experience in the 2022 Cayenne.

Porsche Cayenne Design


While maintaining a strong visual connection to its predecessors, the Cayenne adopts new design elements that hint at how this generation builds upon its legacy. Enlarged air intakes in the front fascia along with new horizontal light edges create a wider, more athletic appearance. Cargo area volume with the rear seats raised has increased by almost 15 percent over the previous generation to 27.19 cubic feet. The available Porsche Dynamic Light System (PLDS) or LED Matrix Beam headlights enhance the visual appeal of the Cayenne while providing illumination with exceptional clarity.

Porsche Cayenne Turbo

Cayenne Turbo

The third-generation 2022 Cayenne Turbo raises the bar for performance in the segment with a twin-turbo four-liter V8 engine which delivers 541 horsepower. Improved driving dynamics are a direct result of innovations which include high-performance Porsche Surface Coated Brake (PSCB) technology, three-chamber air suspension, and staggered tire sizes. Representing gains over the previous generation, the Cayenne Turbo can rocket from 0 – 60 in just 3.7 seconds with the optional Sport Chrono Package on its way to a top track speed of 177 MPH. 18-way sport seats, seatbacks with integrated headrests, and standard heating functions for all outboard seats help ensure both drivers and passengers can enjoy unparalleled comfort and support.
