Porsche Cayenne Ground Clearance

Ground clearance (also understood as Ride height) computes the height from the lowermost edge of the car’s underbody and the point of the tires’ contact with the even road. But, the maker of the model might utilize tiny tweaks to the normal program to advertise attractive outcome implying the factual distance from the shock absorbers, the engine oil pan or the muffler to the road might be briefer than mentioned in the official manual.

It is no wonder while reasonable consumers seek a heightened ground clearance to avoid dilemma when parking near the bumps or riding through the rugged terrain. The factual ride height of the model fluctuates between 190 to 218 mm depending on the year of production and equipment. Take into account that a well- packed car will surely sacrifice about 1 inch of ground clearance.

Happily, the model ground clearance can be lifted with spacers for shock absorbers to help the vehicle remain higher off the ground. While enjoying a taller model, you abandon a portion of the erstwhile stability and maneuverability driving fast. On the contrary model ground clearance can be lowered in the interest of enhanced handling and stability.

There a number of ways to increase ground clearance. When it comes to lifting or lowering your Porsche Cayenne you can choose between bigger tires, a leveling kit, coil spring assisters, coilovers, airlift suspension, suspension lifts, etc.
