The Cayenne S is powered by a newly developed 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine with a maximum power output of 468 hp and a drag torque of 442 lb-ft. V8 engines stand for exceptional power output, torque, low-vibration operation and a characteristic sound.
PASM is an electronic damping control system that is standard on all Cayenne models. It actively and continuously controls the damping force according to the road conditions and driving mode. For reduced body movements and more comfort for all seats. Four settings are available: "Normal", "Sport", "Sport Plus" and "Off-road".
The enhanced adaptive air suspension with full load-bearing air-spring struts in 2-chamber technology allows for an even greater combination of comfort and sportiness while at the same time maintaining the same ride comfort. The level system helps to maintain a constant ride height. By adjusting the height of the chassis, the ground clearance can be varied as required, for example during off-road use. The rear end can also be lowered for easier loading of the luggage compartment.
Whether you're in the driver's seat or a passenger: Driving a Porsche should feel like a sport while still offering great comfort. The Cayenne models manage this balancing act effortlessly: thanks to the enhanced chassis and technologies that adapt the chassis even better to the intended use — such as off-road use. Examples include the adaptive air suspension, the Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) for active roll stabilization and the rear-axle steering.
With 64,000 camera-controlled pixels, the HD matrix LED headlights with innovative pixel LED technology react to every driving situation with light distribution adapted to the situation. For example, the glare-free high beam, illumination of the exact driving lane, mapping of the vehicle width in construction zones and narrow areas, as well as the fog-optimized dipped beam and rain light ensure greater safety and comfort.
Standard 20-inch and other 21- and 22-inch wheels optimize handling with a new tire size. Fundamental revisions to the chassis and a new adaptive air suspension ensure both greater comfort and increased performance. Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) is standard on all models.
Depending on the model and equipment, the spacious luggage compartment offers up to 27.2 cu. ft. of storage volume. The luggage compartment can hold up to 60.3 cu. ft. thanks to the 40:20:40 folding rear seats. The cargo management system is available on request: a variable system for the secure transport of items in the luggage compartment. It includes two attachment rails integrated into the floor of the luggage compartment and a partition net.
Typically Porsche driver-oriented in the style of the new Porsche Driver Experience: The digital instrument cluster with a 12.65-inch curved display places the displays concisely in the field of vision. Various display formats can be selected: typical round instruments, map section in the central round instrument, full area navigation map, reduced view and the optional view with Night Vision Assist in the center.
While the instrument cluster and the central display are tailored to the driver's seat, the optional 10.9-inch touchscreen display is on the passenger side. It provides access to navigation and infotainment functions, among others. It can provide assistance with route planning as well as insight into the data of the instrument cluster. With the optional in-car video, videos can be streamed on the front passenger display while driving — which are only visible to the front passenger.
Door locks with integral soft close system for easy and quiet closing of all four doors.
Burmester® 3D High-End Surround Sound System with a total output of 1,455 watts and 21 individually controlled loudspeakers including a 25cm/400-watt active subwoofer with class D amplifier, two-way center system and Auro 3D® technology for a captivating, spatial and homogeneous acoustic pattern. Sophisticated high-end audio components, e.g. special ribbon tweeters (air motion transformers, AMT) and a total diaphragm surface area of more than 2,500cm2 enable precision playback even at very high sound levels. A wide selection of preset equalizers ensures a first-class audio experience, while a sound conditioner based on microphone technology adapts the sound sensitively and in real time to the driving situation. What's more, the Sound Enhancer® delivers improved audio quality and dynamics for compressed file formats such as MP3.
That's why all Cayenne models are equipped with a brake system with six-piston aluminum monobloc fixed calipers at the front and four-piston aluminum monobloc fixed calipers at the rear. The one-piece, closed construction results in a very high dimensional stability. The pressure point is precise and the braking distance is impressively short.
Surround View features a 360° surround view generated from four high-resolution cameras enabling even greater comfort when maneuvering. A junction view (from front and rear of the vehicle) provides assistance at more complex exits. Images are displayed on the Porsche Communication Management (PCM) screen.
Radar- and video-based technology that monitors and automatically regulates the distance from the vehicle in front as required even down to a halt by means of the stop-and-go function (usable at 19+ mph). Additional functions: audible warning if too close; warning by active jolt of the brakes; strategic braking; visual and audible warning if pedestrians are detected within collision range.
