On all Cayenne gas engines, we have used direct fuel injection (DFI) to achieve a significant increase in specific power and torque as well as better fuel economy and lower emissions.*
The Cayenne features a naturally aspirated 3.6-liter V6 engine with direct fuel injection (DFI) and variable valve...Learn more
Porsche Traction Management (PTM) is an active all-wheel drive system with an electronically variable, map-controlled multi-plate clutch, automatic brake differential (ABD) and anti-slip regulation (ASR).
Torque is distributed between the front and rear axles by means of the electronically variable...Learn more
DFI injects fuel directly into the combustion chamber at up to 120 bar with millisecond precision using electromagnetic injectors. The injector position and spray geometry have been carefully designed to improve output, torque, fuel economy and emissions. The swirling of the fuel as it enters each...Learn more
The Cayenne models that are equipped with eight-speed Tiptronic S also feature an Auto Start Stop function. If, for example, you stop at traffic lights and keep your foot on the brake pedal, the Auto Start Stop will automatically turn off the engine. Although the engine is not running, all audio...Learn more
The six-speed manual gearbox on the Cayenne has been specifically adapted for the demands of high-performance use. The gear lever throw is short and precise, and each of the six ratios has been selected for optimum progression through the gears. As the center console rises to meet the dashboard,...Learn more
The outstanding feature of the eight-speed Tiptronic S is a particularly wide ratio spread. First gear is designed for optimum acceleration when pulling away and greater performance when tackling ascents and towing loads in off-road terrain. Top track speed is reached in 6th gear (in 7th gear on...Learn more
VarioCam Plus creates two engines out of one by steplessly adjusting the inlet valve timing and lift.
The system differentiates between normal road usage and performance driving, adapting seamlessly as driver inputs change. All functions are automatically controlled by the engine management system....Learn more
A high-performance engine can only maintain its maximum capability over a long service life if all components are operating consistently within a specific temperature range. The engines in the Cayenne models are therefore designed for efficient cooling.
In order to reduce the...Learn more
We’ve just continued to improve it: the Cayenne is now lighter – up to 363 pounds* depending on the specification – and also more dynamic, more comfortable, and closer to the road than ever before. Without detracting from the qualities required for off-road driving or towing heavy loads.
