Both vehicles are well-engineered and have the agile, powerful capabilities that you may be searching for in your next crossover SUV. The 2021 Porsche Cayenne S is equipped with a 434-horsepower, twin-turbo V6 engine. On the other hand, the 2021 Porsche Cayenne Turbo has a 541-horsepower, twin-turbo V8 engine. Both vehicles have an eight-speed Tiptronic S transmission, active all-wheel drive, an auto brake differential, Porsche Traction Management, anti-slip regulation, auto start-stop with a coasting function, and Active Suspension Management. They also both have an integrated 4D chassis control system. However, the Cayenne S has a steel spring suspension system, and the Cayenne Turbo has an adaptive air suspension system.


These two versions of the Cayenne appear identical at first glance, but a closer look reveals differences in badging and dimensions. For example, the Cayenne S is shorter in length and taller in height than the Cayenne Turbo. These differences translate to a subtle difference in their profile. The standard wheels included with these trim levels also differ, and both are on display at Porsche Milwaukee North for you to view. Regardless of the trim level selected, the Cayenne has a strong angle through the hood with a rounded nose, triangular headlights, and well-designed definition over the hood and sides.


The Cayenne Turbo has more refined interior materials, but both vehicles have dressed-up cabins with the same cockpit-like design. They also have a high-performance steering wheel, heated seats, a digital display screen, HomeLink, keyless access, parking assistance, paddle shifters, multiple USB ports, a Porsche Connect system, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and more. The Cayenne S has a 10-speaker Hi-Fi sound system, and the Turbo trim level has a 14-speaker Bose Surround Sound audio system with a subwoofer.
