New for ’92

Motor Trend

Sonoma GT

GMC TRUCK: GMC has been the most aggressive truck manufacturer in the industry over the past couple years, and ’92 is no different. Following on the heels of last year’s Syclone pickup is the Typhoon, basically a two-door Jimmy outfitted with a performance package similar to the Syclone’s. The turbocharged port-injected 4.3-liter V.6 still delivers a healthy 280 peak horsepower and 350 foot-pounds of torque for a reported 6.5-second 0- 60 time. The Typhoon also features full-time all-wheel drive, four-wheel anti-lock brakes, a sport-tuned suspension, and luxuriously appointed interior with leather upholstery and numerous custom touches.

Also inspired by the Syclone is the Sonoma GT. This compact, regularcab pickup includes GM’s new L35 high-performance 4.3-liter V.6 with central-port injection, which puts out 195 horsepower and 260 foot-pounds of torque and is expected to do 0-60 in 8.5 seconds. The GT also includes a sport chassis package, with Bilstein shocks, 15- inch rally wheels, BFGoodrich Comp T/A tires, custom body cladding, black monochrome finish, and custom interior similar to the Syclone’s.
