2025 Porsche Cayenne GTS Gets More Power, Improved Handling, and Tweaked Pricing

by | April 22, 2024

Porsche is looking to expand its performance horizons with 2025 Cayenne GTS. Newest addition would slot below range topping Turbo model and give customers more choices for both performance and body style. 

Porsche is bringing big updates to the 2025 Cayenne GTS

Choice and the ability to appeal to a wide range of SUV buyers has always been a strong suit of the Porsche Cayenne. The Cayenne was Porsche’s first SUV entry and its success helped the company not only enjoy a newfound era of prosperity, but also allowed Porsche to follow up with the smaller Macan SUV. 

However, the company knows that the flagship SUV segment is constantly evolving and that a steady stream of updates are key to help the model maintain its strong sales numbers. Porsche is out to expand the Cayenne’s pool of customers for 2025 with the all-new 2025 Cayenne GTS which gives continues to give consumers a middle ground performance option while also filling a gap in the trim ladder too. 

GTS continues to skip electrification 

The GTS gets more power and improved handling

The GTS has always been a trim level that focused on providing the driver with maximum enjoyment out on the road and the 2025 version continues this tradition in earnest. Unlike other members of the Cayenne family, the GTS continues to resist the urge to add electrification and focuses on giving buyers more traditional performance. The model is still powered by a 40-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 but Porsche engineers have made tweaks to the engine that now allow it to make 493 hp and 487 lb-ft of torque (gains of 40 horsepower and 30 lb-ft respectively.) 

In addition to the beefed up engine, the suspension has also been upgraded with this iteration of the GTS getting the same front axle pivot bearings as the Turbo GT which is supposed to improve steering response. The air suspension itself has also been modified and allows the GTS to be lowered 10mm which is lower than what the air suspension does for lesser Cayenne models. Buyers can also add an optional Active Roll Stabilization system to help mitigate roll when throwing the SUV through sharp corners.  

GTS offers more bodystyles 

The GTS will be available in both standard and coupe bodystyles

In addition to all the updates Porsche has made to the performance hardware, the 2025 Cayenne GTS also offers buyers more choice in regards to body configurations. Unlike the range-topping Cayenne Turbo GT which can be only ordered as a coupe, the GTS not only offers the aforementioned coupe body style, but also retains the default boxy look for buyers that want more cargo space and aren’t willing to sacrifice it to accommodate the coupe’s sloping roofline. 

All GTS models get the Sport Design Package standard which blacks out certain portions of the SUV’s exterior while 21-inch RS Spyder Design wheels add some pop to the SUV’s side profile. Porsche is also offering three weight saving packages that can cut up to 55 lbs from the GTS but while it may not seem like much when you consider that the model still has a curb weight of 4,954 lbs, every ounce shaved helps improve handling and acceleration.

When can I buy one? 

Luxury and technology continue to play key roles in the Cayenne

Porsche revealed that the 2025 Cayenne GTS is expected to make its way to dealerships this fall.

Pricing reflects the GTS’s status as a middle ground performance option but it’s not cheap with a base GTS starting at $126,895 while the coupe gets a bumped up MSRP of $131,495.  

This pricing while expensive would give the GTS greater separation from the Cayenne Turbo GT with that model not only being available exclusively as a coupe, but also starting at $197,950 which can be too steep for even some of Porsche’s well-heeled clientele to absorb with their wallets.
