There’s good news if you were disappointed that V8 engines started disappearing from Porsche’s SUV range.

The new 2020 Porsche Cayenne GTS is getting an engine upsize as the powerplant sitting in the engine bay is now once again a V8, rather than the 3.6-litre twin-turbo V6 it was replaced by.

Now with the 4.0-litre V8 twin-turbo unit in both standard SUV and SUV Coupe styles, the Cayenne GTS makes 338kW from 6000rpm and 620Nm from 1800rpm respectively.

Porsche says this, thanks to all-wheel drive and the Sport Chrono package, results in a 0-100km/h sprint taking just 4.5 seconds for the 2145kg unit.
