2022 Porsche Cayenne vs. 2022 Lincoln Aviator

When it comes to having powerful engines and a long list of dependable technologies, the 2022 Porsche Cayenne will never be left behind. This dynamic luxury midsize SUV is one of the finest in its class for having an upscale cabin.

The 2022 Lincoln Aviator seems to impress as well because it promises a muscular engine lineup. It also carries a user-friendly infotainment system. Expect that there are no major changes for this ride when compared to its predecessor.

Design & Style

The 2022 Cayenne is an elegant ride filled with just the right and premium quality materials for its cabin. It has soft-touch surfaces here and there with well-padded seats that one can comfortably seat on. The ride can accommodate up to five people (although four is a standard without the rear middle seat). There is plenty of legroom and headroom on both rows, plus it has just enough cargo space for your weekend suitcases.

For the Lincoln Aviator, expect three rows of seats that can seat seven (it has six seats when you opt for captain’s chairs for the second row). It is quite frustrating that while this ride has heated front seats with 10-way power adjustability, it is only fitted with synthetic leather upholstery. Metal accents and wood trims have been used to highlight the cabin, but it lacks the charm that the Cayenne possesses.

Technology & Safety

There is a 12.3-inch touch screen found inside the 2022 Porsche Cayenne. This one works flawlessly, since it actively responds to user inputs, and displays crisp graphics as well. Supporting Apple CarPlay, it is also equipped with 10 speakers, Bluetooth, four USB ports, a satellite radio, and a navigation system. Other driver aids include front and rear parking sensors, as well as a rearview camera.

Carrying the SYNC 3 infotainment interface, the Lincoln Aviator is also one system that is easy to comprehend with. This has a 10.1-inch touch screen which can be used to access features for smartphone integration. It has 10 speakers, Bluetooth, four USB ports, a Wi-Fi hot spot and a satellite radio.  Standard safety features include blind spot monitoring, lane keep assist, front and rear parking sensors, and rearview camera, among others. MyKey is also part of the set of offerings. These ones need some upgrades to make them work as promised.


The 2022 Porsche Cayenne has a base V6 with 335 horsepower. There are also other configurations like the twin-turbo V6 that generates 434 horsepower, the V8 engine in the GTS which makes 453 horsepower, and the other is a V8 which results in 541 horsepower. The Aviator, meanwhile, has a 400-horsepower twin-turbo and the 494 horsepower that pairs the said engine with an electric motor.

The Bottom Line

The 2022 Porsche Cayenne is a ride that is sporty, modern, and tech-rich. It also has potent engines to match its appeal. The Aviator does not compare to all the things that it can offer.
