Serving Farmington Hills, MI

The Porsche Cayenne is the perfect option for drivers in Farmington Hills who crave power behind the wheel and need a larger vehicle’s functionality. In 2019, Porsche released the third generation of the Cayenne with bumper-to-bumper improvements, and it has continued to innovate change in the Cayenne in subsequent model years. Are you eager to learn about the updates that have been made to the 2021 Cayenne? A comparison between the 2020 and 2021 Cayenne will reveal notable improvements.


In 2021, the Cayenne GTS returns with a twin-turbo V8, 4.0-liter gas engine. This engine has a 453-horsepower rating, and it achieves a speed of 60 miles per hour in only 4.5 seconds. As you continue to compare the 2020 and 2021 trim lines, you will notice that the other well-engineered powertrains have not changed. One of several powertrain options available is a 335-horsepower, turbo V6, 3.0-liter gas engine. It can get you up to 60 miles per hour in 5.9 seconds.


Across all of the trim levels that carry up from the 2020 model year, the exterior style of the Porsche Cayenne is unchanged in 2021. However, the revived Cayenne GTS has a few changes. For example, it has darker trim pieces and wheels. It is also slightly shorter, creating more robust angles across the front and rear ends of the profile.


While there are changes to the Cayenne’s exterior style, trim lineup, and performance capabilities, you will not find improvements to the available features when comparing the 2020 and 2021 trim levels. Based on the Cayenne trim level that you prefer, the 2020 and 2021 versions come with a navigation system, a Bose or Burmester sound system, smart device integration, a power sunroof, a heated steering wheel, climate-controlled leather seats, and other elite features.
