What separates the 2019 Porsche Cayenne Turbo from the other Cayenne models is, not surprisingly, that third word in its name, “Turbo”. There are some aesthetic changes like new LED headlamps, a modified front bumper, 21-inch alloy wheels, and twin exhaust pipes, but specifically, it’s the twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 engine that puts out 550 hp and 576 lb-ft of torque through to the wheels via the 8-speed Tiptronic S transmission that makes the difference. This setup bests the previous-gen by 30 hp, making it the speediest Cayenne ever. To put some figures to it: the 2019 Porsche Cayenne Turbo with the Sport Chrono Package will accelerate from zero to 100kph in 3.7 seconds (3.9 without the package) and maxes out at 287 kph.
Porsche has touted the latest flagship Cayenne as the best of three worlds with “the precision of a sports car, the comfort of a saloon, and the adaptability of an off-road vehicle.” It shares the eight-speed transmission with the AWD Cayenne, and the same 911 genes manifesting themselves as mixed tires and rear-axle steering, but it also adds roll stabilization, Porsche Vectoring Plus system, an adaptive suspension offering six different levels, and 5 drive modes for blacktop and off-road.
