The Porsche Cayenne crossed the Pond to the United States for the 2003 model year, right after the first-generation model was introduced in Europe. The S and the Turbo were the first versions to arrive in North American dealerships. The base V-6 model and the range-topping Turbo S followed up by 2006, when the entire Cayenne lineup became available to U.S. buyers. The second-generation SUV came to replace the first Cayenne in 2010, and brought to brand new models along with it. The lineup expanded to receive a hybrid model in 2011 and a diesel version in 2013, further increasing the SUVs popularity worldwide.
Going into 2015, the second-gen Cayenne is getting an extensive mid-cycle facelift that includes a lengthy list of visual changes, interior upgrades, and updated powertrains. Slightly more aggressive by design, the facelifted Cayenne is not only about added power. The German SUV also claims to return more fuel economy, a feat we will verify as soon as we get our hands on it for a test drive. Until that happens, make sure you check out our full review.
