The GMC Syclone was and is a high-performance version of the GMC Sonoma pickup truck. It was initially produced in 1991, and made way for the similarly powered 1992-1993 GMC Typhoon Sport Utility Vehicle. Another companion model, the GMC Sonoma GT, was released as well but it offered less performance. At the time it was introduced, the Syclone was the quickest stock pickup truck being produced in the world. This of course must have been extremely exciting to General Motors, as they must have been demanding a lot out of their mechanics. Both the GMC Syclone and Typhoon trucks featured some Mitsubishi made parts as well as Garrett components. Both vehicles featured sport modifications to the standard suspensions. The Syclone was the first production truck to receive a 4 wheel anti-lock braking system, which was quite notable at the time.
Auto Shipping Quotes For GMC Syclone
Sport Truck, in October of 1990, tested the Syclone and obtained a 0-60 mph acceleration time in 4.8 seconds and a quarter-mile run in 13.08 sec @ 100.44 mph. Stopping to really think about this, one will recognize that that is a phenomenal time for a pickup truck that lacks the aerodynamics of say a sports car. Whatever GMC was putting under the hood seemed to be working. Oddly, or perhaps to draw some media attention, the 1991 Syclones were available only in black. GMC must have realized that this was not exactly preferred, as it created too many personal vehicles that could not be distinguished from the next. The 1992 models were to be offered in a wider range of colors before they were canceled. In total 2995 Syclones were built in 1991, and 3 in 1992. Additionally, 113 were reported as Export Sales including a subset now referred to as the Saudi Syclones of which a small number were delivered to Saudi Arabia and modified with a metric dash cluster, leaded fuel chip, and a resonator in place of the catalytic converter.
