Porsche currently has an entire rang of all-new or refreshed models, as well as an upcoming mid-size SUV, the Macan, which means that it’s time to take care of the customer-convincing Cayenne.
Our spy photographers recently caught the Cayenne 958 facelift prototype during a testing session, but the SUV is still shy about showing us its updated looks.

The Cayenne still looks fresh, so the visual changes may not be as important as the ones brought when the previous generation of the SUV received a revamp. Nevertheless, the front and rear aprons, as well as the light clusters and the exhaust tips will get new styling cues.

As for the interior, this is also expected to received a few touches, but the changes should be even more discrete than those offered on the outside.

Nevertheless, when it comes to the powertrain department, Porsche’s Cayenne is on its way to receiving multiple upgrades.

The Cayenne S is expected to drop its naturally-aspirated V8 in favor of Porsche’s new twin-turbo V6 delivering 420. Thank you 2014 Panamera S. Fans of natural aspiration shouldn’t worry though, as the Cayenne GTS will keep its snarling V8 firepower.

The revamped Panamera’s scheme will also be used for the Cayenne S Hybrid, which will borrow the 2014 Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid’s powertrain. On the Panamera, this offers a combined output of 416 hp and a fuel efficiency of up to 3.1 liters per 100 km (76 mpg).

While the new Cayenne S Diesel will be carried over, the Cayenne Diesel is expected to drop the current 240 hp V6 single-turbo. The vehicle should get a V6 oil burner delivering over 300 hp, so Audi;s BiTDI, albeit with a specific Porsche calibration, seems like the most likely candidate.

The Porsche Cayenne facelift is expected to make its debut in the second half of next year, as a 2015 model.
