Porsche just unveiled the redesigned midsize crossover that will go on sale in the U.S. in mid-2018 as a 2019 model. The Cayenne moves to a new platform — Volkswagen Group's MLB architecture — and gets lighter and faster. The base 2019 Cayenne is powered by a 3.0-liter, single-turbo V-6 producing 340 hp, 40 more than the current base Cayenne. A diesel-powered Cayenne will be dropped from the U.S. lineup, but it will be sold in other markets. Porsche last sold a diesel Cayenne in the U.S. in 2015, before pulling it in the wake of Volkswagen's diesel emissions scandal. The 2019 Cayenne E-Hybrid can go about 27 miles on a full charge in electric mode, nearly double the stated 14-mile range of the current plug-in hybrid. The latest E-Hybrid, scheduled to arrive at U.S. dealerships in early 2019, includes the third new hybrid powertrain from Porsche since 2017, the company said. It combines a 3.0-liter mono-turbo V-6 engine and an electric motor to create 455 hp, 40 more than the outgoing model, and 516 pound-feet of torque.
A coupe body style is being developed for the Cayenne and could arrive as early as 2019. It would give Porsche a rival to the BMW X6 and Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe. Blume told Autocar that Porsche "is thinking about" a coupe variant but has "not decided yet."
A freshening for the Cayenne is expected in 2021 or 2022
