What is the Fastest SUV in the Porsche Lineup?
When you think “speed” and “power,” there’s a good chance you immediately picture a Porsche. Even the brand’s compact and midsize SUVs leave other manufacturer’s’ models in the dust. So, which SUV holds the distinction of fastest in the Porsche lineup? Unquestionably, the new Cayenne Turbo S. At the wheel, you’ll enjoy the utility of the Cayenne SUV, as well as a punch of power that pushes the V8 engine to nearly 200 mph. Let’s delve into all that is this rip-roaring Cayenne!
The Turbo S is a veritable force to be reckoned with – on and off the beaten path. At its heart is an upgraded version of the Turbo’s front-engine: a 4.8L twin-turbo V8 engine rated at 570 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque. With so much power under the hood, it’s no wonder the Cayenne Turbo S tows as much as 7,716 pounds. But, it’s this five-seater’s speed that truly makes its performance something special. It charges from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.8 seconds, and reaches a top track speed of 176 mph—making it one of the speediest SUVs money can buy.
Sports Car Handling
Like any other Porsche vehicle, the 2017 Cayenne Turbo S is an overachiever. It’s not enough for it to reach record 0-60 mph acceleration times; it follows its pulse-pounding performance up with race-inspired handling technologies, such as:
- 8-Speed Tiptronic: This intelligent automatic uses an auto start/stop function to lessen fuel usage, and caps off engine speeds in its higher gear ratios for a quieter cabin as you fly down the highway.
- Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM): Self-leveling air suspension, coupled with PASM, continuously adjusts ride height and feedback for a comfortable or fast-paced ride around Redwood City.
- Available Sport Chrono Package: One of this package’s many features is an integrated SPORT PLUS button, which alters throttle response and steering to make this SUV’s speed even more thrilling.
