2015 Porsche Cayenne What's new for 2015? 
2015 Porsche Cayenne

The Cayenne SUV lineup for 2015 is reduced to five trims: Diesel, S, S E-Hybrid, Turbo and Turbo S. All trims get revised suspension tuning, a bump in horsepower and better fuel economy. New options include a 360-degree Surround View camera and heated and cooling rear seats.

2014 Porsche Cayenne What's new for 2014? 
2014 Porsche Cayenne

Since the high-efficiency diesel variant joined the Cayenne family last year, and the top-of-the-line, 550-horsepower Turbo S went on sale recently, there are no substantive changes for 2014. The Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus becomes an option across the line.

2013 Porsche Cayenne

A new diesel variant joins the Cayenne lineup for 2013, and earns its place as one of the most fuel-efficient mid-size SUVs on the market. In addition, the current Cayenne Turbo relinquishes the top spot in the Cayenne range to the new 550-horsepower Turbo S (available Spring 2013).

2012 Porsche Cayenne What's new for 2012? 
2012 Porsche Cayenne

Following its 2011 remodel, the Cayenne isn't remarkably changed for 2012. Among the biggest new features is an optional power kit for the Cayenne Turbo that adds 40 horsepower to crank out a total of 540. The turbo version also gets slightly larger front disc brakes, and all models receive upgraded carpet in the cargo hull and on seatbacks.

The all-new 2011 Porsche Cayenne larger and roomier, but 400 pounds lighter. It's more powerful, but more fuel-efficient. The lineup now includes a hybrid model, and offers a torque-vectoring all-wheel drive system that actually raises its Porsche-ness to a new level.

2009 Porsche Cayenne

A new flagship, the 550-horseopower Cayenne Turbo S, joins the line up bringing to five the number of models wearing the Cayenne badge. Other changes include a revised Porsche Communications Management System (PCM) using a touchscreen instead of a keypad to access information. Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB) technology is offered for the first time, while the GTS trim's sport seats and red or gold paint is now available on all Cayenne models.

2008 Porsche Cayenne What's new for 2008? 
2008 Porsche Cayenne

Porsche calls its 2008 Cayenne the second generation of the vehicle, but that is not nearly as noticeable from the exterior styling as it is from the engine choices and the new level of equipment.

About Porsche Cayenne

Wearing the Porsche badge on its liftgate means the 2015 Cayenne SUV has to live up to the legendary performance expected of every Porsche. With rapid acceleration, impressive steering and braking plus enough luxury to please the most demanding connoisseur, the Cayenne for 2015 is the perfect blend of family wagon and gut-punching performer. Available in a number of trims ranging from quick to potent, the Cayenne can tow up to 7,716 pounds and still leave most sports cars in its dust. The Land Rover Range Rover Sport may be better off road, while the BMW X5 and Mercedes M-Class offer comparable features at a lower price, but none of these competitors has an equal to the new S E-Hybrid, the world's first plug-in luxury hybrid SUV.

"This is my 3rd Cayenne---first V8 - 44,000 miles - the previous cars were amazing-85K and 75K miles respectively-ZERO issues..this one is a different story--in the first 30,000 miles I--had a major radiator pipe blow out necesitating a special part from the factory to be flown in (two weeks)(adhesive failure), two major water leaks around the windows, the engine knocks (or pings) constantly (car has been tuned, plugs changed, software reset)(factory rep has looked at it) and will not stop, requires 1 quart of oil every 400-450 miles (dealer has kept a log of the usage. The engine knocking happens no matter what brand of gas I use (dealer suggested a switch) - it impedes performance and engine reacts sluggish - no one seems to care----am trading the car in right before the warranty expires-NO WAY will I own this particular car without a warranty---the radiator issue alone would have cost over $5,000 according to the service rep.....too bad--I had really enjoyed the previous Cayennes I owned--not sure I'll buy another one."

"This is the second time I've had a cayenne, first time I've bothered to review it. It has power, it has grace, it handles wonderfully, it looks great on inside and out, the engine looks like a work of art, and best of all it's a pleasure to drive, be it spirited, or leisurely. Only problem I have is the value. I don't understand why Porsche makes these cars ala-carte, but to their credit the are making the packages they do offer better and more prevalent. Great car if you like to drive (this is not your ordinary SUV), but if an autodimming rear view mirror is more important to you than acceleration look at the Acura or Lexus."

"You have to drive one to believe what the reviews on this model says. After reading how good this SUV drives, I thought it was all talk. I test drove one, and bought one within days. I would recommend Porsche adding more standard options, or the ability to add more options at the dealer's service center at a later date. The SUV is supposedly built around it's options, and adding some of the most simple things can be cost prohibitive. However when the option comes on the vehicle the option's can be reasonable for such an expensive vehicle. The cayenne has responsive acceleration, turns sharply, handles high interstate speeds like a luxury car, and can stop abruptly. I felt like having perfect control at all speeds I drove. Also on the test drive the brake feels like it pulls ever so slightly when you let of the gas at a low speed. This either goes away or becomes less noticeable after the first day. The seat is very comfortable, but the upper back area feels like awkward."
