Porsche Cayenne

Segment: Exotic
NEXT STAGE: Freshen in 2023

The workhorse midsize crossover received a midcycle freshen this summer that feels more like a redesign.
The 2024 Cayenne S swaps its V-6 engine for a V-8 that makes an additional 34 hp and delivers a 0 to 60 mph time of 4.4 seconds. Porsche mechanically adapted the eight-cylinder to make it “at least as fuel-efficient” as the V-6, said Mike DePetro, product manager for Porsche Cars North America.
Significant interior, exterior and under-the-hood updates are meant to rekindle interest in Porsche’s No. 2 seller. The changes put the Cayenne interior on a par with the 911 and the electric Taycan.
A muscular front features styled fenders, a raised hood and redesigned headlights. The taillights are updated as well, while a new rear fascia integrates the license plate holder. 
Porsche dials up its crossover lineup next year with the Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid that pairs a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 engine with a 174-hp electric motor to deliver a combined 729 hp. 
The third-generation Cayenne is likely the final combustion engine version. Production is expected to end in early 2029, according to AutoForecast Solutions.
