What’s New At Porsche of the Village

Porsche’s third-generation Cayenne is here, and it is lighter, faster, and stronger than before–and with much more tech baked in. Here are the improvements of the 2019 Cayenne, and these are the top 10 to give a second look at:

1. Roll Stability

Opt for the $3590 Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) choice on the 2019 Cayenne–it is available on every model–and you’ll get electrically adjustable anti-roll bars. (You’ll also be made to find the air suspension with Porsche Adaptive Suspension Management–it’s standard on the Cayenne Turbo but costs $4160 on a base Cayenne and $2170 on a Cayenne S, but who is counting?) Whereas the older Cayenne’s similar system was electrohydraulic, the new setup is purely electromechanical, necessitating a 48-volt electrical supply besides the regular 12-volt circuit.

PDCC essentially splits each axle’s anti-roll pub in 2, pairing them in the centre with an electric pivot motor that can either link the two ends together or efficiently disconnect them from one another, allowing greater wheel articulation off-road or a more comfortable ride on-road. The motor also can rotate the pubs in opposite directions, which enables the Cayenne to almost completely combat body lean around approximately 0.8 g of lateral acceleration, or it can move each side separately to assist individual wheels climb over obstacles off-road.

2. Porsche Surface Coated Brakes

Until today, the Cayenne–like each Porsche model–could only be arranged in a range of diameters with iron brake rotors or with pricey, track-ready carbon-ceramic discs. For 2019, the Cayenne gains a third option: Porsche Surface Coated Brakes. These iron rotors are coated with a thin layer of ultra-hard tungsten carbide and up to 30 percent more than the standard brakes of the Cayenne. They’re also better stoppers, and Porsche throws in the same 10-piston front and four-piston rear calipers that are included in the carbon-ceramic package. Porsche paints the calipers , rather than the carbon-ceramics’ yellow, to show off another of those rotors’ hints: Their asserted 90 percent reduction.

3. Rear-Wheel Steering, Courtesy of the 911 GT3

As in the latest 911 GT3, the Cayenne boasts a rear-wheel-steering system. For $1620 (plus the air suspension and variable-ratio steering options), this setup adds actuators into the rear axle that can steer the rear wheels against the fronts–with the steering wheel turned to the right, the rears turn to the left–at rates up to 50 miles for sharper turn-in and simpler parking-lot maneuvering.

4. Air Suspension Benefits Two Chambers and Capability

It now has three air chambers per spring where the Cayenne had one air chamber in all its air springs. This allows for a range of ride heights and multiple spring rates. There are five driver-selectable clearances, which range from an ultra-low 6.4 inches from the high-speed setting into a tall 10.4-inch height for off-road driving. There is a super-low loading mode for more easy access to the cargo space.

5. Staggered-Width Tires for Everyone!

The Cayenne until this point has worn back tires and just front –meaning that the width of the tires in front is just like the tires in back. For 2019, the Cayenne gets a fitment on every variant from the base Cayenne around the Turbo.

6. It Has Matrix LED Headlights

Developed by Audi, matrix LED headlights are a cutting-edge lighting technology involving a huge array of individually controlled, fixed-position LEDs per headlight with loads of tricks up their sleeves. Alternatively, bulbs that are specific can light to highlight dangers, including animals or roadside pedestrians.

7. Adjustable grille shutters

Every 2019 Cayenne has adjustable grille shutters that can open or shut enhance engine cooling when needed or to minimize drag when possible. The old Cayenne had these dividers, also, but only on one grille opening. All four of the openings in the front fascia have busy shutters. The slats remain closed at lower rates for the most part, opening as cooling demands dictate when speeds and motor loads increase.

8. Too, the Spoiler Is Active

Cayenne Turbo models build on the busy front-end aero pieces with an active rear spoiler, which deploys in rate – and driving-mode-dependent stages. The spoiler stays retracted in its low-drag Eco mode. In this position, at top speed, the wing produces 220 pounds of downforce. Slam hard on the brakes in any driving manner at or over 106 mph, and the spoiler occupies a full 3.2 inches to function as an air brake. Porsche claims that when stopping from 155 mph, the braking distance shortens by seven feet. More fun facts: With the panoramic sunroof open (the glass sits atop the roof when raised), the spoiler skips beyond its Sport Plus height to a 2.4-inch air-brake-like setting to account for the different aerodynamic profile. We’re told that the Cayenne Turbo speed is lowered by the drag generated with the sunroof open .

9. It Is Lighter Than Before

Sharing its underlying MLB architecture with Audi’s most current Q7, the new Cayenne sheds some weight relative to its predecessor thanks to expanded use of aluminum in its body shell. Before, the Cayenne’s body was composed of steel, with just the hood and tailgate. Now, the whole tail of the body structure is aluminum, as is the entire”hang-on” skin, such as the doors, roof, hood, tailgate, and fenders.

10. Smarter Smart Cruise Control

You’ve heard of adaptive cruise control, which maintains a driver-set rate until a linked camera or radar sensor determines there is slower traffic ahead and automatically adjusts the vehicle’s speed to match. The Cayenne offers that, and a few tricks, with InnoDrive, which debuted on the second-generation Panamera. It’s an adaptive cruise function that goes a step beyond real-time evaluation from cameras and radar detectors to react proactively to road conditions around 1.9 miles ahead of the vehicle.
