If you are into luxurious SUVs, then you are going to love the new 2024 Porsche Cayenne. There is an upcoming redesign coming up. Porsche decided it was time to upgrade their current Cayenne. There isn’t a lot of information surrounding this announcement, but there were a lot of spy photos taken.
Testing is already underway, so we might be able to have more details quite soon. We are expecting design improvements as per usual. Better interior, and updated technology on the inside. The exterior might not be touched at all. Why change the winning formula? The powertrain options might change a bit. Let’s take a look at what the new Cayenne might look like.
Porsche Cayenne Interior Upgrades
This is where most of the changes will happen. We can expect an improved interior with the 2024 Porsche Cayenne. There will be more upholstery choices with contrast stitching and multiple colors to choose from. Gauge cluster with a traditional analog tachometer and dual 7-inch screens on both sides are also available. There is a classic infotainment system which is 13 inches.
A massaging seat feature is included, as well as heating and ventilating seats. The Cayenne has a tall order since its main competitors are the luxurious Q7 and XC90. They both have three rows, while Cayenne offers only two. There are 27 cubic feet of cargo space behind the seat, and it goes up to 60 cubic feet if you fold the second row.
The 2024 Porsche Cayenne looks stunning. There are 20-inch luxury-looking wheel rims with the option of going up to 21 inches. They are lightweight materials that reduce weight while increasing the power-to-weight ratio.
There are adaptive LED headlights that have that classic Porsche tear shape. The front fascia is lowered for better aerodynamics. Bumpers are seamless, and they fit well into the design. The body, as always, looks like a sports car even though it is a big SUV.
Although there is little information available regarding the engine, it is believed that there are two engine options: the V6 and V8, which will either run on diesel fuel or gasoline that has been processed. The 3.6-liter naturally aspirated V6 will no longer be produced by Porsche. It will be replaced by a four-cylinder turbocharged engine that is smaller, more compact, and capable of producing about 300 horsepower. Additionally, the GTS and S models will have more modern 2.9-liter V6 engines with 400–440 horsepower and 400–425 lb-ft of greater torque.
The 4-liter dual turbocompresseur V8 and Rolls-Royce-based powertrain should be used by the turbos that have recently been losing market share in the US sector. This will produce more than 550 horsepower and 550 lb-ft of twist. The only choice for the gearbox will be the eight-speed double clutch i465 black. It will have a seven-speed double-clutch automatic I465 black gearbox. As a result, the Porsche Cayenne 2024 will be able to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in under 4.4 seconds. It can go up to 183 mph. The automated gearbox can reach 60 mph in 4 seconds and can reach a top speed of 182 mph.
There are also numerous reports about an E-hybrid version. But we are more interested in a fully electric version and why it isn’t happening. Perhaps there is a need for platform change. But the hybrid powertrain is still an upgrade over the old one. Hopefully, Porsche decides that there is a need for a dual electric motor setup. These motors can move the 2024 Porsche Cayenne for 17 miles each without any fuel. And on top of that, they can recharge on their own.
Driving Range and Fuel Economy
The 2024 Porsche Cayenne E hybrid can get around 21 mpg of combined driving. The fully electric range is only 17 miles. The Cayenne and Cayenne S get around 22 mpg on the open road. The GTS is the most thirsty option, and it gets around 15mpg in the city and 19 on the open road.
2024 Porsche Cayenne Price and Release Date
We expect to see the new 2024 Porsche Cayenne later in 2023, probably in the summer. The price will depend on the trim you choose. The cheapest one is around $70,000, while the E-hybrid version costs $84,000. The Cayenne S is around $88,000 and the GTS version costs a whopping $110,000. But we all know what Porsche is about and the things that come with the price tag.
