Unveiled in a press release issued by Porsche today is the new 2015 Cayenne. This upcoming model sees a few new updates, as well as additions to the model’s engine lineup.
This new generation of the Porsche Cayenne will be launched in the U.S. with four different versions, including the Cayenne Diesel, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo and the brand-new Cayenne S E-Hybrid. With the addition of this hybrid model, as well as the 918 Spyder and Panamera S E-Hybrid, Porsche has become the world’s only automaker to offer three plug-in hybrid models.
Making the 2015 Cayenne stand out from previous models are a few exterior touches. The front bumper now has integrated LED daytime running headlights and also features airblades which are air fins located on the right and left sides of the front bumper. These aair bladesnot only update the front end’s appearance but also help guide air to the intercoolers for increased cooling abilities. Above the front bumper are a pair of new Bi-Xenon headlights that really steal the show.

In the rear, the lights have been redesigned to create a modern three-dimensional effect. Below the lights is a newly redesigned rear bumper with tailpipes integrated into the bottom section.

Each of the new models features an improved “auto stop-start function plus” and for the first time in the Cayenne models active air flaps were implemented. Below is a breakdown of each model, with specifications and prices.
