TheGMC Sycloneis a high-performance version of theGMC Sonomapickup truck. Produced in 1991 byGMC, the Syclone spawned the similarly powered 1992-1993GMC TyphoonSUV. Another vehicle, theGMC Sonoma GT, offered less performance but was seen as a companion model.
At the time it was introduced, the Syclone was the quickest stock pickup truck being produced in the world. Auto magazines compared its acceleration favorably to a variety of sports cars including the Corvette and - in a memorable comparison test inCar and Drivermagazine - a Ferrari.Featuring a turbocharged 6-cylinder engine, all wheel drive, and 4-wheel anti-lock brakes, the specifications had more in common with a Porsche than most other pickup trucks.
Both the Syclone and Typhoon trucks featured aMitsubishiTD06-17C 8cmÂ²turbochargerandGarrettwater/airintercoolerattached to a 4.3 LLB4V6engine with unique pistons, main caps, head gaskets,intake manifolds, fuel system,exhaust manifolds, and a 48mm twin bore throttle body from the 5.7 LGM Small-Block engine. All Syclones and Typhoons had aGM 700R44-speedautomatic transmission. ABorg Warnerall wheel drivetransfer case split torque with 35% forward and 65% to the rear wheels.Both trucks featured sport modifications to the standard suspensions. The Syclone was the first production truck to receive a 4-wheelanti-lock braking system. Output was 280hp (209kW) and 350lbâ‹…ft (475Nâ‹…m).The Syclone, when new, was capable of accelerating from 0-60mph in 4.6 seconds and could do a quarter-mile run in 13.4 seconds at 98mph (158km/h) according to Car & Driver's comparison test.
In 1991 Syclones were available in black only. 1992 models were to be offered in a wider range of colors before they were canceled. 2995 Syclones were built in 1991, and 3 in 1992. 113 (estimated 31 returned) were reported as Export Sales including a subset now referred to as theSaudi Syclonesâ€” a small number were delivered to Saudi Arabia and modified with a metric dash cluster, leaded fuel chip, and aresonatorin place of thecatalytic converter.
The Syclone, Typhoon, and Sonoma GT were built forGMCbyProduction Automotive ServicesofTroy, Michiganand sold through dealerships.
The Syclone and Typhoon's gauge cluster is the one used in thePontiac SunbirdTurbo, which was discontinued in 1990, one year before the Syclone was introduced.
