2021 Porsche Cayenne vs. Its Competition

2021 Porsche Cayenne GTS
Kirk Bell Kirk Bell Senior Editor

When the Cayenne arrived, it embraced luxury and performance in a class that had never seen the two married.

Other SUVs have followed suit, many quite well.

The Range Rover Sport costs about the same and offers similar track and off-road capability.

Land Rover’s Velar is not quite as expensive and lacks the high-end power and track persona of the top Cayennes.

The Mercedes-Benz GLE 63 and BMW X5/X6 come in standard SUV and “coupe” body styles as well, and also offer high-horsepower engines to go with their luxury.

Hailing from America is the Jeep Grand Cherokee available in SRT and SRT Trackhawk variants with crazy power and track moves.
