In correlation to the 411 on which it was based, the 421 presented a lodge pressurization framework, all the more capable adapted and turbocharged GTSIO-520-D motors and a higher max takeoff weight. Conveyances of creation 421s started in May 1967, Cessna at the time asserting it as the least expensive pressurized twin available.
