Porsche spices up the 2021 Cayenne lineup with the return of the GTS model, which has a 460-hp twin-turbo V-8. - Caranddriver

The 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS is an all-new offering in the performance mid-size SUV segment and is available for a selling price of $107,300. Available in a single trim configuration, the 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS is the most expensive and powerful moniker of the 2021 Porsche Cayenne lineup, barring the Turbo variants. This performance SUV comes with the 4L twin-turbo V8 motor mated to the same 8-speed PDK automatic transmission and a full-time AWD drivetrain system, all of which helps to put out 453 hp and 457 lb-ft of torque. Along with that, the 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS also comes with a host of features as standard like heated and powered seats, leather upholstery, Alcantara inserts, Alcantara headliner, forward collision monitoring, parking sensors, 12.3" touchscreen infotainment system, and a 10-speaker audio system.

The 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS can also be leased or financed, as many of the Porsche dealers offers lucrative deals across the United States. Since this SUV is priced at an MSRP of $107,300, leasing the ride is the most economical way to get the 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS. The 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS can be had for a lease price of $1,593 for a 36-month term with an initial down payment of $4,289.

For this finance deal, you would have to give a monthly payment of $1,950, which is for a 60-month term.

If you want a midsize sporty luxury SUV that makes you grin every time you slip behind the wheel, your best bet is the 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS. - Edmunds

The 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS is the top-of-the-line model of the 2021 Porsche Cayenne lineup and is available for sale at a base MSRP of $107,300. Coming in with just a single trim configuration, the 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS is the most powerful moniker of the lot, due to the presence of a 4L twin-turbo V8 motor under the hood that is capable of putting out 453 hp and 457 lb-ft of torque. This motor comes mated to the 8-speed PDK automatic transmission and an AWD drivetrain system. The 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS also gets many exterior features like 21" RS Spyder Design alloy wheels wrapped in 285/40R21 front & 315/35R21 rear tires, automatic LED headlights with LED DRLs with PDLS, roof spoiler, and 12 exterior colors. These RS Spyder Design alloy wheels can also be had in 14 different shapes and colors as well.

Even though the 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS is quite expensive making it less value for money in comparison to some of the rivals, this premium mid-size SUV is also one of the best in terms of performance and opulence. Interior, exterior, and safety features like a forward-collision warning system, parking sensors, leather upholstery, Alcantara inserts, LED headlights and taillights with PDLS, panoramic sunroof, and many more are standard.

A V8 has triumphantly returned to its position underhood, which replaces the old GTS' high-strung V6. - Cnet

The 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS, which is available for sale at a starting price of $107,300, comes with a single powertrain, which is the 4L twin-turbo V8 motor putting out 453 hp and 457 lb-ft of torque. This motor comes mated to the excellent 8-speed PDK automatic transmission, which is a dual-clutch automatic. The power is put down through the full-time AWD drivetrain system.

The stiff chassis and the suspension setup on offer with the 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS help it to be a great corner carver. The 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS also offers minimum body roll and corners with utmost confidence. However, the ride quality does take a toll due to the stiff suspension setup on offer, especially during the slow city speeds. As the speeds rise during highway riding, the 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS rides flat. The steering is also very direct and precise, even though it lacks a bit of feel and feedback. In comparison to the regular 2021 Porsche Cayenne, which is available for sale at an MSRP of $67,500, the 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS is much stiffer and tauter. It is also more fun to drive.

It manages to put out a 0-60 mph time of 4.2 seconds and a quarter-mile time of 11.8 seconds. the 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS can do a top speed of 168 MPH when going flat-out. With a massive 15.4" front rotors and 14.1" rear rotors, the 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS can also do the 60-0 mph braking test in just 118 feet. In comparison, the 2021 Porsche Cayenne could only post a 0-60 mph time of 5.9 seconds and a quarter-mile time of 14.3 seconds.

The interior of the 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS, as with any other Porsche, is simply exquisite. - Carbuzz

The 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS is a 5-seater mid-size luxury SUV that is available for a selling price of $107,300. The 2021 Cayenne lineup has never been one of the best in terms of interior space, and the same ethos is carried over to the 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS as well. The 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS front seats offer below-average headroom and shoulder room in comparison to the rivals. However, the legroom of 42.8" is the highest of the segment, making it comfortable for people with long legs. Apart from that, the 2021 Cayenne GTS also retains the exceptional interior quality of Porsche's, and this moniker gets a host of customizability too. The interior can be had in 10 upholstery and interior colors and comes wrapped in leather and Alcantara. The ergonomics are also impeccable. Features like heated and powered seats, automatic climate control, etc are present on board too.

​   2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS comes in 10 interior color combinations

The 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS rear row is also not its USP. The headroom of 37.8" is the lowest of the segment. Even the shoulder room and legroom are also not as impressive as the rivals like the 2021 Audi SQ8. The 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS comes with many features to improve the rear seat comfort, like ambient lighting, ventilated seats, 4-zone automatic climate control system, powered sunblind for the rear windows, panoramic sunroof, and many more. However, all of these are optional extras, which are quite expensive. The cargo capacity of 27.2 cu ft is the lowest of the lot too. Nevertheless, this can be increased by folding the rear seats.

Both the 2021 Audi SQ8 and the 2021 Mercedes Benz AMG GLE 53 offers superior headroom and shoulder room for the front and rear-seat passengers. The 2021 BMW X5 M50i also managed to come out with better overall space. The cargo capacity of the 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS is mediocre too. The 12.3" touchscreen infotainment system with PCM  does the infotainment duties in the 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS. The audio is handled by the 10-speaker audio system. An optional Bose and Burmester audio system are available too.

However, the 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS misses out on the Android Auto connectivity. The user interface of the 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS is excellent and the display quality is better than most of the rivals too. The audio experience showcased by the standard 10-speaker audio system is the best of the lot as well. Some of the interior and infotainment features on offer with the 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS are:

  • 12.3" touchscreen infotainment system

Usually, you have to pay for a sinister look, but the Cayenne GTS -- and all GTS models, for that matter -- makes it standard. - Cnet

The 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS retains the overall design of the regular 2021 Porsche Cayenne, which is still part of the 3rd generation. Even though the same design has been in sale for quite some time, the 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS still looks fresh and handsome from all angles. Available for a selling price of $107,300, the 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS front view offers impressive road presence due to the blacked-out grille, massive air dam, and automatic LED headlight with LED DRLs. With a low height of 65.1" and width of 78.7", the 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS looks a bit smaller than the rivals. This also does take a toll on the interior space.

2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS is one of the best looking SUVs on sale

The 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS side view showcases the massive 21" RS Spyder Design alloy wheels which come in 14 different colors and designs. This alloy wheel gets wrapped by 285/40R21 front tires and 315/35R21 rear tires. Subtle fender flares, blacked-out B and C pillars, and multiple character lines help the 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS to retain the muscular design language of Porsche's. The neatly integrated roof rails also help in uplifting the side profile. The rear of the 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS comes with an LED taillight, integrated roof spoiler, powered liftgate system, air diffuser, and twin exhaust outlets. Even though the wheelbase of 114" of the 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS is the lowest of the lot, it still managed to come out as the best in terms of handling and driving dynamics.

Every model has forward-collision warning and parking sensors at both ends. - Caranddriver

The 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS hasn't been crash-tested by both the NHTSA and IIHS yet. Even the regular 2021 Porsche Cayenne, which is available for a selling price of $67,500, has also not been crash-tested by the coveted testing organizations. Nevertheless, with a stiff chassis and exceptional build quality on offer, the 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS will come out with top-notch scores when crash tested.

2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS hasn't been crash-tested by the NHTSA and IIHS yet

The 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS also gets a decent list of active and passive safety features as standard. Some of the features like Porsche Side Impact Protection System, LATCH child seat mounting system, Warn and Brake Assist, front and rear parking sensors, rearview camera, automatic brake differential, anti-slip regulation, and forward-collision warning system are standard. However, many driver-assistance features like adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go technology, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane-departure warning, and lane-keeping assist are all optional extras.

2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS Vs. 2021 BMW X5 M50i

The 2021 BMW X5 M50i is a mid-size performance SUV that is available for sale at an MSRP of $82,800. Even with a much lower price tag, the 2021 BMW X5 M50i offers a superior performance from the 4.4L twin-turbo V8 motor. The 0-60 mph time and quarter-mile time along with gas mileage are also better than the 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS. The interior space and standard features list of the 2021 X5 M50i is exceptional too. Hence, we would highly recommend it if you are ready to sacrifice a bit on opulence and luxury.

2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS Vs 2021 Mercedes Benz AMG GLE 53

The 2021 Mercedes Benz AMG GLE 53 has a lot of things going for it. Available for sale at a base MSRP of $72,350, this mid-size performance SUV offers decent performance from the 3L turbocharged inline-6 motor, impressive interior and cargo space, and many features as standard. It is also cheaper than the 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS by close to $35,000, making it extremely valuable for money. However, the 0-60 mph time and quarter-mile times posted by the 2021 AMG GLE 53 are not as good as the 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS. It is also not in the same league in terms of driving dynamics as well.

2021 Mercedes Benz AMG GLE 53

2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS vs  2021 Audi SQ8

The 2021 Audi SQ8, which is available for sale at a base MSRP of $89,100, offers all the bells and whistles you could think of from a luxury mid-size SUV, especially in terms of interior and driver-assistance front. The performance from the 4L twin-turbo V8 motor is also quite excellent, along with the acceleration times posted. In comparison to the 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS, the only area in which the 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS trumps the 2021 Audi SQ8 is in the driving dynamics since the former is more fun to drive SUV. If you could sacrifice a bit on this front, the 2021 Audi SQ8 would be our pick.

2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS SUV Final Verdict

The 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS has a lot of things going for it. This premium mid-size SUV, which is the highest variant of the 2021 Porsche Cayenne lineup, offers the best-in-class driving experience, unmatched handling, and an impressive interior too. The 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS also looks stunning from all angles and retains the ethos of a typical Porsche. However, coming in for sale at a base MSRP of $107,300, this mid-size SUV is ridiculously expensive and the rivals offer more bang for the buck due to more interior and safety features along with a spacious cabin. Hence, if you are fine with slightly less fun to drive SUV, we would advise you to check out the 2021 BMW X5 M50i and the 2021 Audi SQ8, as both of them are packed to the brim with all the features. Both are more powerful than the 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS too.

The powerful SUV

Pros - Good V8, premium interiors and comfortable rear seats

Cons - It looks fine completely

A sporty SUV The handling, acceleration, braking and comfort are the best and made it hard for the rivals to compete with Porsche. The sporty feel I get with the sound and thriving acceleration it gives within seconds of pushing the pedal. The ownership costs are ok for an SUV of this kind and after changing spark plugs, cabin & engine air filters, and transfer case fluid in the service, it sounds fresh and more inviting to accelerated. It's a great one. The atmosphere was clean and relaxing.The size of the inventory was huge. The service team was good to deal with any technical issue they come across. I love their smiling faces towards the customers. keep going!!

HIghly Reliable

Pros - Powerful engine, strong performer, crafstmanship in interiors

Cons - Price, expensive optionals

Best Car Ever One of the best cars in the world is Porsche Cayenne. It looks amazing, drives like some sporster, but with such ease you might have it confused for sedan. It driving dynamics are just impeccable. Its power is invigorating. The cabin is extremely comfortable, it is every bit spacious, It brings very engaging atmosphere. Cargo space is ample. It is flexible to drive any where almost. It is the most amazing car ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Good service, helpful manager, always approachable anytime for help needed with service or any issue in General. Like once I got issues in braking, they replaced with minimum price and did it very quickly. Good dealership.

Cayenne!!!!!!!!!!!

Pros - Handling dynamics, performance, luxurious interiors

Cons - Price, cargo space is short

Pricey but worth the value! The SUV! with power, luxury interiors, thrilling ride, efficient performance, excellent handling, a very precise steering to control the amount of power it pumps out. It has a sliding and reclining seats. The rear seats have good space for head and leg room. It is very safe and highly reliable. Treating everyone equally and with respect is very important, I saw that here. They are very good with any visitor there. Its a good dealership I would say.
