2022 Porsche Macan will not have a 'Turbo' model
No worries, the new GTS will be just as powerful as the old Turbo
A couple of years ago, when they unveiled the Taycan, Porsche said they would electrify most of their existing models starting with the Macan but it seems they've changed their mind since then because while it is true that the all-new Macan will be electric, Porsche seems determined to continue building an ICE variant as well, possibly with a different nameplate. Anyway, the all-new Macan is still a couple years away and in the meantime, the German brand has opted for a mid-generational refresh with new looks and more power. And no more 'Turbo' models.
Porsche intends to scrap the 'Turbo' designation for the Macan and the 2022 GTS will take the crown as the range-topping version with an upgraded ECU, 33.4 psi of boost pressure, new air suspension, 434 hp and 405 lb-ft, which is basically the same as the current Turbo.
Buyers can also get the 'standard' Macan, coming in with a 2.0-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder rated at 261 hp and 317 lb-ft (248 and 273 respectively in the current model), or they can buy the Macan S, powered by a 2.9-litre V6 (3 L in the current model), putting out 375 hp and 383 lb-ft.
The facelifted Macan looks similar to the previous model but it does feature a redesigned rear bumper and grille, and the new front air intakes. As always, you'll find significant improvements for the interior, with an upgraded digital instrument cluster and a new 10.9-inch infotainment screen. The new car will be officially revealed in late 2022, pricing TBA.
