The 2016 Porsche Cayenne is going to be quite a big update of the current model. It will feature new engines which are going to come both in the US and in Europe, a new bold styling as well as a few extras which the previous car lacked. As you would expect, it will be quite an improvement over the previous generation car. The one thing we expect to remain unchanged is the interior which Porsche is well known for keeping it close to the initial launch model. This is mainly because Porsche Cayenne 2016 doesn’t really need to be changed considering it still is one of the best luxury SUV vehicles out there.
Porsche Cayenne 2016 redesign
The biggest changes on the new 2016 Porsche Cayenne are most likely going to be on its exterior. It will still keep the current basic shape but the details are going to change a big. All the models will get the newly redesigned headlights as well as the new base wheels. These are going to be 17 inches alloys with a similar design to the older Turbo model. The Turbo S model will also now have a new front bumper with bigger intakes needed to cool that massive engine.
Just as we previously stated, on the interior things aren’t going to be as ground breaking as on the exterior. Most of it will remain basically unchanged with the exception of the base Porsche Cayenne 2016 which will now get the new premium infotainment system as well as the standard triple zone automatic climate control system.
2016 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S V6 engine
Engine wise, the Porsche Cayenne 2016 is going to come with a few different poweplants, both in the US and in Europe. The base car will get the same 3.6-liter aspirated V6 as before. This is good for 300 horsepower and 300 lb-ft of torque. Further up the range, the S model will boast a 3.0-liter Audi supercharged V6 with 333 horsepower. The top of the range model on the other hand is going to be the great 2016 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S which will get a 4.8-liter twin-turbo V8 with as much as 570 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque which will allow the massive Cayenne to go from 0 to 60 MPH in just 3.8 seconds and up to a maximum top speed of well over 170 MPH. There is also going to be a hybrid but this will be the same as that found in the previous generation model.
2016 Porsche Cayenne release date and price
One thing that we don’t know about Porsche Cayenne 2016 is its release date which seems to be some time in the last quarter of 2015. The base price will remain unchanged which was expected. The base model will cost around $60,000 US dollars while the higher end models, including the 2016 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S will go as far as $120,000 green ones and even more than that.
