It’s hard to believe that a mini pickup truck could ever embarrass my V8 car, let alone Chevy’s ZR-1 Corvette. But the fact remains that the Syclone is the quickest production truck on the planet! For ’92, GMC takes the program one step further with the Typhoon (obviously, someone in marketing used to be a weatherman). Acceleration junkies can now have the best of both worlds, with four seats and a full roof line. Sharing identical powertrain. suspension, exterior and interior amenities, this hybrid Jimmy two-door is virtually a carbon copy of the Syclone. The turbocharged/ intercooled port-fuel-injected 4.3 V6 produces 280 horsepower and 350 foot-pounds of torque! Featuring the 41-60 four-speed automatic transmission and fulltime all-wheel drive with four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, the 13-second/ 140-mph Typhoon offers gobs of performance without compromising comfort and utility values.
