2019 was a pretty big year for the Porsche brand, but it was an even bigger year for the ever-powerful  2019 Porsche Cayenne, which was considered the best performing SUV of the year by JD Power. Needless to say, our Porsche dealers and customers at Porsche Nashua were excited to hear the news, and many agreed that it was well-deserved.

Lift the hood of the 2019 Porsche Cayenne and right away you’ll get an idea as to why JD Power considered the latest Porsche SUV flagship to be the best performing SUV of the year. Starting at the bottom, the Porsche Cayenne gets a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 engine that isn’t shy about putting out 340 horsepower and 332 lb-ft worth of torque. That much power allows the SUV to launch from 0 to 60 in as little as 5.9 seconds.

Moving up the ladder, you’ll find a Porsche Cayenne that derives power from a twin-turbo 2.9-liter V6 engine, which roars out of the gate at a rate of 440 horsepower and 406 lb-ft worth of torque. That much oomph jumps the Porsche Cayenne from 0 to 60 in as little 5.0 seconds, and can reach top speeds of a staggering 164 mph. Further still is a V8 beast that thunders a tremendous 550 horsepower and 567 lb-ft worth of torque, and puts that 0 to 60 marker somewhere around 4 seconds. At top speeds of 177 mph, this is a car that can juggle utility and speed without so much as a moments’ hesitation.

All of that power tucked into a single car, it makes sense why JD Power would consider the 2019 Porsche Cayenne the top-performing SUV of the year. When you visit Porsche Nashua near Bedford, you’ll find the new Porsche Cayenne, and you can see for yourself what JD Power was talking about.
