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 Interior Design
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 lights.
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 400 lb-ft.
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.
