2023 Porsche Cayenne completes major update testing

Porsche is well aware that its immediate future is the intensive electrification of the entire model range. The commercial success of the Porsche Taycan opened the eyes of many skeptics. If the next 100% electric model will be the Porsche Macan, its brother, the Porsche Cayenne is completing the test phase of its new version. The Germans are working on one of the deepest updates they’ve ever done. New technologies, different design and a serious mechanical overhaul – that’s what awaits us.

Already in the current model, the Porsche Cayenne does without any electromechanics in the name of more efficient mobility. Traditional diesel engines have been replaced by high-performance plug-in hybrid versions. The Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid and Turbo S E-Hybrid are distinguished by high power and comfortable handling, but not exceptional electric range. At best, we are talking about an approved mileage of 44 kilometers, which is enough to obtain a zero DGT rating.

The redesign engineers are working on is expected to include range-extended plug-in hybrid versions. Competing models such as the Mercedes GLE or BMW X7 offer more modern units with ranges of up to 110 kilometers in higher off-road hybrid versions. Porsche’s problem lies in the platform, which was not designed to accommodate large-format batteries, although the people of Stuttgart will surely find a solution that will bring them closer to their nearest competitors.

Much of the focus is on the refinement of the car’s chassis, with the Cayenne losing no dynamic capability, comfort or versatility, spaces where it unfolds quite smoothly, despite what looks might indicate. by the product manager. , which will modify its response depending on the type of driving.

The change in design will also be noticeable, although the overall lines and proportions will be retained. From the doors inside, a new set of displays will be added with the latest home operating system. The size of the panels will increase, as will the number of functions they can perform. The new Cayenne will also be the first to introduce HD matrix LED headlights, which will become standard for the brand and will soon be used across the rest of the range.

The official launch is scheduled for the spring. A large number of structural changes require the development team to perform rigorous testing on four continents. More than 200,000 kilometers per test unit, simulating extreme operating conditions, in just a few months. From the most intense heat to freezing cold. Any scenario serves to ensure that the Porsche Cayenne not only maintains its well-known capabilities, but also enhances them.

Earlier it became known that the Maserati GranTurismo (2024) is returning in a new form.
