Changed Specs for 2020 Turbo Como 5.0

Comparing the Specialized specification page for 2020 Como 5.0 it seems some things are different from my 2020 purchased May 2019 . Can anyone explain what these differences mean in terms of quality, durability, and effort to make speed? Anyone know why the COmo went to a 10 Speed set up?
Thanks, Bill


My Como:

REAR DERAILLEUER 11 Speed 1x11, Shimano Deore XT Derailleur with Shadow Plus,
CHAIN Shamano HG 601- 11
CHAINRING IS a 48 tooth chain ring
CASSETTE: Shimano SLX 11-42 Tooth Cassette
CRANKSET: Praxis Works

----------------

Specialized Spec page for the Como 5.0 (Oct 5, 2020) lists these:

REAR DERAILLEUR Shimano Deore, Shadow Plus, GS cage, 10-speed
CHAIN KMC X10eT, 10-speed w/ Missing Link™
CHAINRINGS 40T, 104 BCD w/ chainguard
CASSETTE Shimano HG500, 10-speed, 11-42t
CRANKSET Custom alloy forged crankarms

Sometimes, I wonder who's the liar. A Specialized LBS in Poland lists as many as 16 different Turbo e-bikes as MY 2021. The Specialized website for Poland has all of them listed as MY 2020...
