In the Special Terrain setting, you can climb some pretty significant inclines: The ramp angle is 24.7 degrees, the front overhang angle 31.8 degrees, and the rear overhang 25.4 degrees.

I searched hard for one equipped with the rare Advanced Off Road Package option as well: includes reinforced rock rails, extra protection for the engine, gasoline tank, and rear axle, and a variable and lockable rear differential.
Awesome! Now the real question...will it out perform a Wrangler?

General Offroad, not likely, modified Wranglers are hard to beat.

Rock Crawling. No chance. Cayenne not designed for rock crawling.

Onroad, 158 mph max speed. 405hp naturally aspirated V8.

Transsyberia 14 day 4,300 mile Offroad Rally. Take a look at the video.

Rod Millen drove it in the rally:

What I personally enjoy about it, is that it's a solid daily driver, quite practical for a variety of endeavors, and quite fun to drive on road as well as off road.
