The engines on both the base 2019 Porsche Cayenne and 2019 BMW X5 models offer a total of 335 hp, but drivers who want greater max performance from their midsize crossover luxury SUV should opt for the highly-rated Cayenne:
- Porsche Cayenne – An available turbocharged 2.9L V6 engine on the Cayenne S serves up a robust 434 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque. Upgrading to the Cayenne Turbo increases output to a staggering 541 hp and 568 lb-ft of torque. That’s enough power for this model to move from 0 to 60 mph in an incredible 3.7 seconds with the Sport Chrono Package.
- BMW X5 – The most powerful engine available on the BMW X5 is a turbocharged 4.4L V8 engine that’s only capable of putting out 456 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque. While that’s enough to propel the BMW X5 to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds, it’s still not enough to beat the Porsche Cayenne.
