The 2023 Porsche Cayenne Review, Pricing, and More

December 13th, 2022 by

The 2023 Porsche Cayenne, Porsche’s mid-size crossover luxury SUV, has received an extensive makeover this year with a host of customization options. And now, with an aggressive build and a selection of powerful engines, the new 2023 Porsche Cayenne will be one of the most desirable vehicles on the road in 2023, and it’s for a number of reasons.

In the world of high-end performance SUVs, the Porsche Cayenne has long held one of the top spots as the most luxurious and desirable ride in the segment. To add to its supreme being, the Porsche Cayenne has also managed to get two of its trims to compete among the fastest SUVs. And while it’s easy to think that luxury, comfort, and high performance come at a high cost, that doesn’t always have to be true, especially where there’s great value for your money.

Let’s take a look at how the 2023 Porsche Cayenne stacks up against its competitors in terms of specs, price, performance, and more.

The Porsche Cayenne is a sport utility vehicle offered in SUV and coupe body styles. Besides the sturdy and artistic fully-galvanized steel body builds, all Porsche Cayenne trims come standard in 19″ aluminum wheels and all-season tires. It also features a black grille with metal-like accents, and the ground clearance ranges from 8.2″ to 9.6″ on the 114″ wheelbase. For drive comfort, the new 2023 Porsche Cayenne uses multi-link front and rear steel suspensions with a combination of gas-pressurized shock absorbers(some trims come standard with air suspension). These features and more ensure that you still enjoy comfort even on your off-road drives.

The Porsche Cayenne comes standard with foglights and LED headlights, each headlight featuring four-point LED daytime running lights. Its LED taillights have a 3D feature with an integral 4-point brake light and light strip. For an aesthetically-pleasing overall look, the Porsche Cayenne’s door handles, power-adjustable and heated side mirrors, and front and rear bumpers are all body-colored.

2023 Porsche Cayenne Fuel Economy and Performance

2023 Porsche Cayenne Performance and Fuel Economy

All Porsche Cayennes come standard as four-wheel drives with an eight-speed Tiptronic S transmission with manual actuation and an automatic mode that works with the 3.0L inter-cooled turbo V6 engine to produce 335hp at 5300rpm and 332 lb-ft of torque at 1340rpm. This raw power drives the Porsche Cayenne from 0-60mph in 5.9 seconds, achieving a top speed of 152mph. The combined fuel rating averages about 20MPG (19 MPG in the city and 23 MPG on the highway.)

The towing capacity of the 2023 Porsche Cayenne stands at 7700 pounds for the entry-level Cayenne. It’s worth noting that the performance of the Porsche Cayenne differs greatly across the trims. For example, the top-of-the-range  2023 Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT powers from 0-60mph in just 3.1 seconds, reaching a top speed of 186mph with a maximum towing capacity of about 6076 pounds.

In addition to being a luxury performance car, the 2023 Porsche Cayenne also features its own hybrid powertrain technology in its hybrid trims. In addition to the same 8-speed Tiptronic S automatic transmission and turbocharged V6 engine, the 2023 Porsche Cayenne hybrid has an electric motor that adds up to about 134hp to the total power output. They’re also better in fuel economy compared to other trims.

2023 Porsche Cayenne Safety and Driver Assist Features

When it comes to safety, there are plenty of features meant to keep the driver and passengers safe in case of accidents. The new 2023 Porsche Cayenne comes with a host of front and rear airbags, as well as curtain airbags that run along the roof’s frame and side windows. Additionally, the front of this SUV is fitted with full-size and knee airbags for better protection from serious impact.

Other standard security and driver assist features include keyless drive, cruise control, ParkAssist, anti-lock braking system (ABS), warn and brake assist, HomeLink, Porsche Traction Management (PTM), and an engine immobilizer with remote central locking. Some trims have more added features, such as power steering plus and a tire pressure monitoring system.

2023 Porsche Cayenne Trim Levels

All trims can be divided into two sub-groups, SUVs and Coupes. Cayenne coupes feature a racier frontline. Generally, each trim improves on the trim model it’s derived from, making it easier to tell which trims are superior to others.

Below is a list of the Porsche Cayenne trims in descending order:

The Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT is the most superior among the trims with a 4.0L twin-turbocharged V8 engine with an 8-speed Tiptronic S transmission that generates 631hp and 626lb-ft of torque.
