Despite the cancellation of the Detroit Auto Show, Germany luxury automaker Porsche has gone ahead and unveiled the 2021 edition of its Cayenne GTS, giving the premium SUV a series of welcome upgrades.

The biggest change unsurprisingly comes in the form of a new engine, replacing the old twin-turbo V6 with a hefty 4.0-L twin-turbo V8 that can push out 454 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of torque, marking a 20 horsepower and 15 pound-feet increase from its predecessor. With more power, the new Cayenne can now make 0-62 mph in just 4.5 seconds when using the brand’s Sport Chrono package, and is able to reach a top speed of 168 mph. Maintaining both the Porsche Active Suspension Management and Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus features, the car gets a new suspension that will lower your ride height but just under an inch, giving you a more aggressive experience. Other options include rear-wheel steering, air suspension, and Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control. The brakes have also been increased in size, now piared with red calipers, upgradeable to either tungsten carbide or carbon-ceramic composite discs. As to its interior, the luxury SUV gets a brushed aluminium trim with Alcantara upholstery and bespoke seats.

You can expect the 2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS to hit dealers this fall, with pricing starting at $108,650 USD.
