The refreshed Porsche Cayenne is underway for the 2023 model year but before that happens, the German marque is introducing its last hurrah for the high-selling SUV. Meet, the 2022 Cayenne Platinum Edition, now revealed for the US market.

The Porsche Cayenne Platinum Edition is the second of its kind for the 2022 model year, the first being the Panamera Platinum Edition. As with the four-door sedan, the Cayenne SUV comes with variant-exclusive accents and additional standard features that separate the special models from the rest of the Cayenne range.

These are found on the intakes, the rear Porsche logotype integrated into the LED taillight, and the badges.

Additional exterior effects include black tailpipes and high-gloss black window trim.

The 2022 Cayenne Platinum Edition is available in solid white or black paint options, along with metallic tones such as Jet Black, Carrara White, Mahogany, Moonlight Blue, and a special color called Chalk.
