Ultimate technology and performance for the ultimate SUVThe new generation Cayenne arrives in the Middle East Region
Dubai. Porsche Middle East and Africa is proud to announce the introduction of the second generation Cayenne SUV in the Middle East region. After enjoying great success since its introduction four years ago, Porsche has equipped the new Cayenne with leading edge technology, power and passion to maintain its lead in the market of Sporty SUV’s around the world. The new attractively designed Cayenne, Cayenne S and Cayenne Turbo models have been given more powerful Direct Fuel Injection (DFI) engines, which at the same time generate up to 15% savings in fuel consumption. Moreover, the car benefits from a number of new and highly advanced technologies, most notable of which is Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) stabilizer, advanced trailer stabilization system, roll-over sensor and pre-loading of the brake system.
Commenting on the introduction of the new Cayenne in Qatar, Deesch Papke, Managing Director of Porsche Middle East and Africa, said: “Never before has there been a car so capable of performing as both a race-bred sports car and a truly specialized 4x4, like the new Cayenne. All of Porsche’s engineering talent has been employed in the development of this car to ensure it successfully captures the essence of two contradictory personalities shared in a single package. The current result is a testament to Porsche’s globally acclaimed engineering prowess. Reception of this model will undoubtedly be phenomenal, a fact that will reflect clearly in our regional and world wide sales figures in the coming years.”
The basic version of this sporty SUV has a 40-bhp power enhancement and is now driven by a 290-bhp six-cylinder engine, the displacement of which has increased from 3.2 to 3.6 litres. Thanks to the introduction of VarioCam Plus valve control, the Cayenne S, now with an even bigger 4.8-liter, naturally aspirated V8 engine, produces a torque of 500 Nm (previously 420 Nm) and an output of 385 bhp, an increase of 45 bhp. Meanwhile, the new Cayenne Turbo manages to generate 700 Nm of torque and an additional 50 bhp than its predecessor raising its output to 500 bhp.
As before, Porsche Traction Management (PTM) distributes engine power between the rear and front axle in a ratio of 62:38. The multi-disk clutch can direct up to 100 percent of drive traction to the front or rear as required. The Cayenne Turbo is fitted with Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) with air suspension as standard. This can now be augmented with the new Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) roll stabilizer system which limits vehicle roll in corners and counterbalances it completely in almost all driving situations.
Porsche Stability Management (PSM), with its brake assist function, advanced trailer stabilization system and off-road ABS, comes as standard on all Cayenne models. What’s more, with static and, for the first time, dynamic bend lighting, the bi-xenon headlamps fitted as standard to the Cayenne Turbo increase active safety.
The basic retail price for the second generation Cayenne models in the GCC region begins at US$ 48,560(Excluding value added tax and subject to vehicle specifications), and will be available at showrooms starting 24th February, 2007.
