Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects for-sale prices on Cars.com for this particular make, model and year.
Best Bets get above-average mpg, class-average or better reliability, class-average or better crash-test ratings, and our recommendation.
These city and highway gas mileage estimates are for the model's standard trim configurations. Where there are optional features, packages or equipment that result in higher gas mileage, those fuel-economy estimates are not included here.

Vehicle Overview Available at dealerships beginning March 3, the revised 2008 Porsche Cayenne has different front and rear styling and a new range of larger engines that feature direct-injection technology and make more power while using less fuel.
The Cayenne can also have the new Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control active suspension system that allows the SUV to corner with less body roll.
Exterior The most visible changes to the Cayenne can be seen at the front of the SUV. The headlights are flatter, and the leading edge in front of the hood is more defined than before. There are still gaping lower grilles, though they've been restyled, too.
The Cayenne Turbo comes standard with an auto-leveling system and adaptive xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights. The base wheels measure 17 inches in diameter, and available wheels march up in 1-inch increments all the way to 21 inches. A power liftgate is standard.
Interior The Cayenne's five-seat interior carries over mostly unchanged from before. A new black and brown leather package is optional. A power liftgate is standard.
Under the Hood The Cayenne's base engine is a 290-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6, while the midlevel Cayenne S gets a 4.8-liter V-8 that kicks out 385 hp and 369 pounds-feet of torque. If you want even more power, the Cayenne Turbo's 4.8-liter V-8 makes 500 hp and 516 pounds-feet of torque and can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds, according to Porsche. That's pretty good for a 5,191-pound SUV. Gas mileage is projected to be 8 to 15 percent better than before.
If you opt for the V-6 Cayenne, you can have your choice of either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission, but V-8 Cayennes are only available with a six-speed automatic. Four-wheel drive is standard.
Safety Antilock brakes, side-impact airbags for the front seats, side curtain airbags and an electronic stability system are standard.
