Porsche’s flagship crossover is getting a midcycle refresh that delivers more driving oomph and a redesigned digital-first interior.
The 2024 Cayenne, unveiled Tuesday at the Shanghai auto show, features a significantly changed powertrain, chassis, design and in-car technology.
Arriving in U.S. stores this summer, the Cayenne crossover starts at $80,850, including shipping, while the coupe version starts at $85,950.
The midsize Cayenne will deliver more standard features, including high-definition LED headlights, active suspension management, 20-inch wheels and safety technology.
Michael Schätzle, vice president for the Cayenne product line, said the 2024 model is among the “most extensive product upgrades in the history of Porsche.”
Dealer Ryan Kirchner describes the Cayenne freshening as more of a typical Porsche redesign.
“Given the pace of technology, Porsche needed to bring a heavy update midcycle,” said Kirchner, new-car manager at Porsche Main Line in Newtown Square, Pa. “And it sets the stage for the future electric Cayenne.”
Porsche’s No. 2 seller in the U.S., the Cayenne accounted for nearly a quarter of the brand’s sales in the first three months of this year.
