2019 Porsche Cayenne: same-same, but different... and better

All-new third generation Porsche Cayenne revealed in full

The new model also makes more extensive use of LEDs for illumination and its exterior design.

After confirming the news way back in 2016, here's a full look at the 2018 Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo, which we previously called the Panamera Wagon. Beneath its familiar hood, drivers will find one of two turbocharged V6 engines. The base engine is a 3.0-liter single-turbo that makes 340 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque.

Stepping up to the Cayenne S, a 2.9 litre twin-turbo V6 petrol features here with 440 hp between 5,700-6,600 rpm and 550 Nm of torque between 1,800-5,500 rpm. 0-100km/h will be done within 6.2 seconds (5.9 seconds with the Sport Chrono Package) while top speed is 245km/h. Top speed stands at 152mph.

What won't know until closer to launch is how fuel efficient these engines will be.

That's from the 434bhp 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 Cayenne S model which starts from £68,000.

Both the standard Cayenne and Cayenne S are equipped with a new eight-speed Tiptronic S automatic gearbox.

To that end, programmed off-road modes allow the driver to select a preset choice for their off-tarmac excursions.

The 2019 Porsche Cayenne will launch sometime in mid-2018 in the U.S.

This third generation vehicle has mixed tyres and rear axle steering facility. This chassis system is electrically-driven, using a worm-gear to rotate the rear wheels opposite the front wheels when turning at low speeds, and with the front wheels when turning at speed, meaning the Cayenne will remain more stable during high-speed cornering, while benefiting from more agile handling and a tighter turning radius at low speeds. One particular technical highlight is the innovative lithium-ion polymer starter battery, which alone accounts for a weight saving of 22 lbs.

Porsche has officially pulled the cover off its third-generation Cayenne SUV.

The vehicle also boasts high-performance brakes with a tungsten-carbide coating, created to increase friction value and reduce brake dust. That really shouldn't come as much of a surprise, since several 911 models already don't offer a manual anyways like the GT3 RS, GT2 RS, and Turbo.

The cockpit looks very similar to that of the Panamera sedan, with the same black-glass capacitive control surfaces.

Under the surface, it's based on the VW Group MLB architecture also used by the Bentley Bentayga and Audi Q7. The all-new Cayenne builds on the formula that started in 2003 while pushing performance boundaries even further through new technologies that significantly improve on-road performance and comfort. In the center is a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system that gets rid of some of the clutter. The "Professional Grade" automaker's CEO revealed to Automotive News recently that a new subcompact crossover could be getting the green light soon. The central command system also features a night vision camera, computerized lane change and parking assistance, and adaptive cruise control. A musical symphony composed by Jesse Milliner was played at the first appearance of the novel model of Cayenne. Porsche Connect Plus also brings enhanced capabilities and apps. These improve braking performance, reduce brake dust and have eye-catching white brake callipers - although you need to order 21-inch alloys if you want them, and they sit below the (likely more expensive) carbon-ceramic brakes in the Cayenne's range of options.
