Never thought I'd say it, but the XT5 could actually compete as a lesser Cayenne:
I would guess the XT5 will get the LTG as standard equipment with the new 3.0TT from the CT6 as the optional engine. Be nice if they put the LF3 in as a Vsport AWD option to compete with the new GTS:The base Cayenne carries over the proven naturally aspirated 3.6-liter V-6. Rated at 300 horsepower, it propels the SUV to 62 mph in a claimed 7.7 seconds, a figure that drops to 7.6 seconds with the optional Sport Chrono package.
I think doing that with dynamic styling could creep the XT5 up the prestige ladder and quell some of the forthcoming sticker shock from SRX loyalists...Porsche is also adding the new GTS, a more powerful variation of the Cayenne S. It's no longer propelled by a lusty V-8, but rather a twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter V-6 that makes an impressive 440 horsepower and an even more remarkable 443 lb-ft of torque.
