If you want to stay on top of your game in the auto industry these days, you need to keep your products fresh and relevant. For the fairly new second generation Porsche Cayenne that's only been on the market since mid-2010, this means a light mid-cycle refresh to keep it up to date for the next few years until the release of a third generation model sometime in 2018.
This isn't the first time we've shared scoop shots of a prototype of the facelifted 2015 Cayenne, and to be frank, there's nothing new to add as it looks like the same tester with the same set of fake lights and black masking tape to cover some of the new design details on the front and the rear ends of the SUV as before.
Along with the subtle styling retouch, Porsche will replace the naturally aspirated V8 with its new 3.0-litre bi-turbo V6 gasoline engine rated for 414hp (420PS) and 520 Nm (383.5 lb-ft), and most likely, add the first plug-in hybrid version in the range with the 410hp V6 unit that premiered in the updated Panamera.
