Comments Off on 2023 Porsche Cayenne: Is This Still The Fastest SUV Of All Time?
People love SUVs because the space is useful, the cabin is comfy, and some have a credible towing capability. The 2023 Porsche Cayenne offers all of that but what puts it above the usual snore-utility vehicles is its rapid pulse.
Its fiercest competitors, such as the Genesis GV80 and BMW X5 all have lower starting prices but they also have trouble keeping up with the peppery Cayenne when the driving gets speedy. In fact, the Porsche lineup is best noted for its fast rides.
Engine & Performance
If you want more giddy-up than what the base Cayenne’s 355-hp turbo V-6 provides, the 434-hp Cayenne S offers an even zestier setup courtesy of its twin-turbo V-6. The plug-in hybrid (called the E-Hybrid) marries an electric motor and a turbocharged V-6 for a combined 455 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque.
The Cayenne GTS boasts a 460-hp twin-turbo V-8 with the great-sounding exhaust note and breathtaking acceleration.
