I believe Porsche and VW are marketing their SUVs as honest to god 4x4 vehicles. The press releases seem to point that way and hint that they were tested (by Porsche and VW) against Jeeps and Land Rovers very favorably. That pretty much leaves out the Navigator, ML, X5, Lexus, Infinity, and Escalade since they are really only intended for fire road type dirt driving.

Now for me the jury is still out on how credible the Cayanne will actually be. Like most SUVs over $50K I doubt they will ever see a non paved road or miss their twice monthly detail appointment. That would be unfortunate but probably exactly what Porsche and VW were hoping for.
