2015 Porsche Cayenne

2015 Porsche Cayenne

The new 2015 Porshe Cayenne SUV will hit dealerships on November with a new face, new tail, lightly updated interior and two new powertrains that should serve to separate the truck from the new entry-level Macan SUV.

The 2015 Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid is now a plug-in. As before, a 333-hp supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 sits under the hood, but is paired with a now more powerful electric motor for 416 hp combined at 5500 rpm and 435 lb-ft of torque from 1250 to 4000 rpm. Porsche claims the all-electric top speed is 78 mph, but it remains to be seen how easily the powertrain will switch over to gas-engine power.

The 10.8 kWh lithium-ion battery can be plugged in or charged while driving. Our 2011 Cayenne S Hybrid long-termer sprinted to 60 mph in 5.6 seconds; Porsche estimates the new S E-Hybrid will get to 62 mph in 5.4 seconds onto a 151 mph top speed.

Porsche has made big price hikes for the model-year 2015 Cayenne. At least for now, the naturally aspirated V-6 is gone as a base model, leaving the $62,695 Cayenne Diesel (prices include $995 destination) as the least expensive way to step into Porsche's best-seller, when the Macan simply isn't big enough.
