Many have complained about the lack of gusto with the standard V6 Cayenne........even with a 6 speed, the amount of rowing you'll have to do to make it move may be a little tiring.

The S would be the failsafe way to go.........it may even be nearly as fuel efficient as the V6 considering you won't have to ask so much of it to get it moving..................

I'm about to purchase a 2006 Cayenne Black/Black w/ PPB and I would like to get some insight from other I-6 Cayenne owners and if possible 6 Speed Cayenne owners. Pros and Cons of the 6 Speed? or the vehicle in general or should I go for the Cayenne S with the V-8?

Hey I love my six. Sure I'd really like a Turbo, maybe even just an S...but I've spread the $$$ out with the purchase of a Boxster too...(Working on the C4 next.) Truthfully though, it's not that bad in the 6- it's a Tipper. Sure I have to downshift to get 'er going, but its really not that bad considering the weight of the beast. Most of the time it's in auto and I get through traffic fine. Now, I had the oppourtunity to REALLY drive the 8 in a demo my dealer was doing for clients. Numerous fast starts, sharp, cornering and hard braking. OK sure there is more pep and it (The S) has that throaty sound, but for the price difference, with options (and depending on your needs) you could still get a great SUV, pretty darn equal to it's big brothers, and have some change left over for a good down payment on another P car.

MY simple advice...drive them both and depending on your driving habits/needs and bank account...go from there...

Best Regards,

CJack

Same here. Got my V6 back in January with a 6-speed manual transmission. For everyday traffic and depending how you drive, the difference between it and the S model is minimal.

For the money you save, as CJack mentioned, you can get the V6 and use the leftover as a downpayment for something else or get the V6 loaded with things like PCM, Air suspension, Xenon, etc.

I love the V6 and I get it offroad a lot. Great car.

Go for it and save your money for something else. :-)

Well if money is not a deciding factor, of course go for the Cayenne Turbo S.
