2011 Porsche Cayenne Overview

The 2011 Porsche Cayenne undergoes its first full redesign since its 2003 debut and remains a performance driven SUV with versatility, power, and that driving touch you’ll only find in, well, a Porsche.

The Cayenne is available in three trim levels: base, Cayenne S and Cayenne Turbo. The difference between trims is simple: a 100 horsepower increase between trims. All three engines are more powerful and efficient than last year and it starts with the base 300-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 which is mated to a standard six-speed manual transmission (six-speed automatic is available).

The Cayenne S comes with a 400-horsepower, 4.8-liter V-8 and the Turbo with a 500-horsepower, turbocharged 4.8-liter V-8, both mated to a new eight-speed automatic.

Like a hybrid, the Cayenne’s new Automatic Start/Stop function turns the engine off at a stop and then restarts it when it’s time to go. An optional adaptive suspension allows the driver to select between Comfort, Normal and Sport modes, while the Cayenne Turbo features air springs for a fine-tuned ride. Official fuel estimates are unavailable at this time, but should clock in at around 16 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway for the V6.

The 2011 Porsche Cayenne competes with the Infiniti FX35/45, Land Rover Range Rover Sport and BMW X5.

One look at the 2011 Cayenne and you’ll notice a closer resemblance to Porsche’s coupes. The headlights and hood look more traditional and fluid, while the flanks have been drawn-in and the rear fascia and spoiler resemble the Carrera GT. The panoramic roof system is 1.4 meters long, while an electric slide/tilt sunroof opens the entire roof up to the elements.

Refinement and versatility rule the interior of the 2011 Porsche Cayenne. New high-end faux materials replace the outdated surfaces and backseat room has increased due to seats that slide forward and back 6.3 inches (allowing for an increase of 4.6 inches of cargo space). A BOSE surround sound system comes standard, while a Burmester high-end sound system is optional.

Connect your mobile media devices through a USB or auxiliary input jack port, while a DVD entertainment system, Porsche Communication Management system with voice commands, and available navigation system completes the infotainment package.

Parking sensors and a rearview camera enhance low-speed safety, while Porsche’s superior braking systems work with antilock brakes and an electronic stability system to keep the Cayenne under control even in inclement weather. In the event of an unavoidable crash, airbags and a sturdy structure provide excellent protection.

Those features are just the tip of the luxury SUV iceberg in the speedy, new-look 2011 Porsche Cayenne.
