The 2018 Porsche Cayenne is the new model of a car that is
about to be introduced in the market. There have been several
sightings that come with the introduction of this new model. It
is believed to be slightly larger than the earlier one. It will
also be a bit wider and shorter in height. Its length will be
the same as the previous. The new 2018 Porsche Cayenne will use
MLB Evo modular platforms like that of Bentayga and VW-Group
longitudinal engine cars.
This new platform is very impressive than the previous one
because it has new materials in addition. It is made of
aluminium with high-strength steel suspension parts. Other
vehicles can also benefit from its multiple components which
give room for further reduction in weight to enhance rigidity.
For instance, if the new 2018 Cayenne uses some carbon fibre
parts, it will benefit greatly from the best out there.
2018 Porsche Cayenne – Exterior Expectations and Luxurious
Just like other cars from German manufacturers, the 2018
Porsche Cayenne is not exceptional. It is not expected to
deviate much. The prototype and development mules will just be
the same like the current one. However, the proportions will be
a bit improved in size. The exact design of this new car will
imitate cues from the Mission E concept and the new Panamera.
It is expected to have new headlights, a larger grille, and a
new back end which have a LED strip instead of the common tail
The Porsche Cayenne 2018 has a better and more comfortable
driving position. Word has it that the interior parts will be
like that of the new Panamera which seems to be true since this
happened to the other previous models. The physical buttons in
the interior will be reduced by the introduction of an improved
touch screen interface. There will be a more improved
infotainment and connectivity options such as Bluetooth, USB
port, satellite radio and others. Further, there will be more
electronic driver assistors with full semi-autonomous features.
The technological additions are programmed for easier usage.
2018 Porsche Cayenne – Engine and Performance
Though information about the engine is scanty, it’s known that
there are two alternatives of engine available; the V6 and V8
which will either be diesel or petrol injected. Porsche company
will do away with the older 3.6-litre naturally aspirated V6.
In its place, it will be a smaller turbocharged four-cylinder
which can offer around 300 hp with more torque. Furthermore, on
the range, the GTS and S will use newer 2.9-litre V6 with a
horsepower of between 400 and 440 with a more torque of about
The turbos which have recently been missing in the United
States market should use a 4-litre twin turbo V8 and Audi based
powertrain. This will provide more than 550 hp and a torque of
550 lb-ft. The wheel drive will be standard through the range.
The eight-speed dual clutch will automatically be the only
alternative for the gearbox. It will possess a 7-speed dual
clutch automatic transmission. This will enable the 2018
Porsche Cayenne to reach the high speed of about 60 mph within
4.4 seconds. Its top speed is 183 mph. The automatic
transmission has a top speed of 182 mph and can attain 60 mph
within 4 seconds.
2018 Porsche Cayenne – Release Date and Price
The new 2018 Porsche Cayenne is scheduled to be released in
mid-2017. Its price is likely to be much higher than the
current model. This implies that it may start from around
$60000 or even higher.
