Porsche Macan Model History
All New and Used Macan Model Years and History
Following a contentious launch of the Cayenne as the first sport utility vehicle sold by the sports car maker, the Porsche Macan's appearance as the brand's second, smaller crossover proved less challenged since it debuted at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show. The Porsche Macan went on sale for the 2015 model year sharing styling cues with its larger, enduring counterpart. The Macan is roughly 6.8 inches shorter than the Cayenne but employs a similar attitude towards sportiness and comfort. Porsche Traction Management all-wheel drive, cruise control and dual-zone climate control is standard while air suspension is optional. The Porsche Macan was initially supported by performance from twin-turbocharged V-6 engines in North America. A 340-horsepower 3.0-liter was found on the Macan S and a 3.6-liter engine generating up to 400 horsepower was included on the Macan Turbo model. Starting in 2017, a Macan base model featuring a 252-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder powerplant as well as 360-horsepower Macan GTS is added.
