The spy shots of the new 2023 Porsche Cayenne are available, and the upcoming SUV will feature significant updates. Porsche’s mid-size flagship model will receive a completely fresh new front thanks to a revised grille and headlight. As we first notice, the more angular shape is present and is similar to the design used on the Taycan model.
Besides the exterior, the manufacturer will also introduce a more modern cabin, filled with the latest techs available on the market. However, as for the engine, it isn’t clear what Porsche has planned. Many believe that the new model will keep the same engines as the current model.
2023 Porsche Cayenne Changes
In terms of design, the new 2023 Porsche Cayenne will be refreshed. However, considering that the last model was completely redesigned, we don’t expect drastic changes. Porsche’s mid-size flagship model will continue to be attractive, featuring a completely fresh new front with a revised grille and headlight.
In general, there is no need for any significant changes because this SUV, whatever it goes, it’s still an eye-catcher. For the 2023 model, the manufacturer also changed its body, adding a more angular shape, similar to the design used on the Taycan model.
The interior of the 2023 Porsche Cayenne is premium, as you’d expect from a German luxury SUV. The manufacturer did a great job, and the cabin looks traditional, hosting some modern luxury touches. The seats are very comfortable, and there is plenty of room for all passengers. Unlike some rivals, there’s no 3-row option with the new Cayenne. However, the Cayenne has more cargo space than its previous generation.
Standard features include front and rear parking sensors, a universal garage door opener, partial leather seats, power-adjustable front seats, 10-speaker audio, and 4 USB ports. As for the infotainment system, Porsche uses a 12.3-inch screen with navigation, wireless Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto.
2023 Porsche Cayenne Engine Specs
At this point, there is no available information regarding the engine of the 2023 Porsche Cayenne. As mentioned, many believe that the upcoming SUV will deploy the same powertrains as before. The base engine is powered by a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 producing 335 horsepower. This engine is the basis for the Cayenne E-Hybrid, which adds an electric motor. However, unlike the base one, the hybrid powertrain produces 455 horsepower.
The Cayenne S is a model that sits in the middle of the offer. It uses a 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 pumping out 434 horsepower. If you seek more power, the GTS trim comes with a 4.0-liter twin-turbo delivering 453 horsepower. This engine is also available, with the Turbo making up to 631 hp. The most potent is a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 + electric motor Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid that delivers 670 horsepower. Every Porsche Cayenne comes as standard with all-wheel drive and a quick-shifting 8-speed Tiptronic S automatic transmission.
Release Date, Price
The much more attractive 2023 Porsche Cayenne will bring many upgrades over the current one. According to Porsche, the release date of the new SUV will happen in the summer of 2022.
Pricing is not yet revealed, but it should be in the coming months. Alongside with the standard model, the manufacturer will also introduce the Cayenne Coupe variant.
