Porsche spices up the 2021 Cayenne lineup with the return of the GTS model. While the company hasn't announced changes for the rest of the lineup, we now know that the GTS will have a 460-hp twin-turbo V-8. Along with more desirable standard features, it'll also benefit from a lowered suspension and other performance hardware. The 2021 GTS is the top-of-the-line version of the regular Cayenne, but it's just as much a gateway to the high-powered Turbo variants (reviewed separately).

Pros
Sensational powertrains,
sports-car DNA,
can tow 7700 pounds.

Cons
Ride can be stiff,
limited cubby storage,
custom options can add up.

By:

The GTS returns, powered by a 453-horsepower turbocharged V8.

Pros
Truly impressive handling for a crossover SUV
Wide selection of powerful engines
Exquisite interior and build quality
Plenty of customization options

Cons
Quite a few features that should be standard at this price are optional
Gloss-black interior panels can quickly look dirty
Poor rear visibility
Climate control fans are weak at low speeds and noisy at high
