The Macan GTS has a twin-turbocharged 2.9-liter V6 producing 375 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. That is an increase of 15 horsepower and 14 pound-feet of torque over previous models. The GTS model fits in between the S and Turbo trims. The Macan S uses a 3.0-liter V6 engine with a single turbo producing 27 horsepower less than the GTS. The Macan Turbo has an upgraded version of the GTS engine giving it 59 horsepower more over the GTS. However, the GTS is quick, going 0 to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds. With the added Sport Chrono package, you can shave off two-tenths of a second off that time. The top speed for the Macan GTS is 162 mph.

Other changes beyond the engine include a new chassis and aesthetic upgrades. The Macan GTS has standard adaptive air suspension and large 14.2-inch brake rotors up front with 13-inch units in the rear. If that isn’t enough for consumers, Porsche offers two brake upgrades. The first optional upgrade is tungsten carbide coated rotors that measure 15.4-inches at the front and 14 inches in the rear. If you want to level up again, they offer carbon ceramic brakes measuring 15.6-inches in the front and 14.6 inches in the rear. 

For aesthetic upgrades, the GTS gets the Sport Design body kit with 20-inch wheels as standard with several black painted accents and black tinted headlights and taillights. The Macan GTS also gets a growling exhaust. On the interior, it has Alcantara trim throughout the cabin, including on the eight-way power adjustable sport seats. Aluminum trim complements the Alcantara interior. 

The 2020 Porsche Macan GTS pricing starts at $72,650, roughly $10,000 between both the S and Turbo trims. The Macan will go on sale in the summer of 2020.
