They may be the best-kept secret in the automotive world. The 2019 Porsche Macan S made its global debut back in December, and people are starting to learn about the perks this SUV has to offer. Check out the engine specs and performance in the 2019 Porsche Macan S!
What’s Under the Hood of the 2019 Porsche Macan S?
Porsche decided drivers might want a boost in power and performance under the hood, so they made an upgrade from the 3.0L twin-turbo found in previous Macan S models. For 2019, the Macan S will have a turbocharged 3.0L V6 engine that gets 348 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque. This amounts to a 4.9-second 0 to 60 time (when equipped with the optional Sport Chrono package) and a top speed of 157 mph.
This new engine isn’t exclusive to the Macan S. It’s similar to the ones found in the Panamera, and Cayenne models. Aside from the engine, Porsche includes a few additional performance updates for the Macan S like fine-tuning the chassis and standard all-wheel drive with Porsche Traction Management. Handling is now better-optimized thanks to newly-tuned anti-roll bars while the Porsche Active Stability Management and height-adjustable air suspension also keep the drive smooth. Other performance specs include Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus, larger front brake discs, and available Traffic Jam Assist.
