2017 Porsche Macan Chicago IL
The Porsche Macan has been a resounding success since its release just a few years ago, and thanks to its popularity, Porsche continues to add to the Macan range. For 2017, the Macan family welcomes new base four-cylinder and performance-focused GTS models, adding to the already existing Macan S and Macan Turbo options.
The new four-cylinder Macan will likely have the biggest impact on the number of Macan’s you see on the road, as it will start with an MSRP of just $48,550 — nearly $7,000 less than the Macan S, which was previously marked as the base model. Though it’s a four-cylinder, it’s not short on performance, with the ability to pump out 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque.
The new four-cylinder Porsche Macan drops the introductory price of the stunning crossover to more readily compete with some its luxury-branded rivals. Even with the smaller engine, it easily outperforms the BMW X3, Audi Q5 and several other crossover competitors. When you want performance, you want Porsche.
Also new for 2017 is the Porsche Macan GTS, which sits between the Macan S and Macan Turbo in the range. With some distinct styling and a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6, there is nothing bashful about the new Macan GTS, which sprints from 0-60 in just 4.8 seconds with the proper equipment.
The powerful and aggressive Macan Turbo features a 3.6-liter twin-turbo V-6 engine capable of 400 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque. With a top speed of 164 mph, a 0-60 time of 4.6 seconds, and some of the most advanced equipment in the luxury crossover class, there are few vehicles that can hold a candle to the 2017 Macan Turbo.
