THE GMC TYPHOON

The GMC Typhoon was the rather-more-useful SUV variant of the exciting Syclone pickup. It was made in 1992-93 and 4,697 were sold in that time. The Typhoon came in a number of colors, as well as the black of the Syclone, including the Frost White of the example on offer here. Other colors are Apple Red, Garnet Red, Raspberry metallic, Forest Green, Bright Teal, Aspen Blue and Radar Blue (there were two of those).

The package was the same though, and it spelled trouble for law-abiding folks. The 4.3-liter turbo-charged V6 meant that 0-60 came up in 4.9 seconds with the top speed limited to 125mph. The Typhoon also had the same 4-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive, and featured air suspension, to level the rear suspension when passengers were on board.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Finished in a vibrant shade of Apple Red with a Black leather interior, this GMC Typhoon has been under the care of just 1 California resident for the entirety of its life. It was also fitted with dealer optional Apple Red flares and ground effects, along with a chrome wheel option. According to the Carfax, the truck was enjoyed regularly in the first handful of years after being sold. By 1998, 20,000 miles had been accrued on the odometer before it began a more sedentary period. Reported to have been kept in primarily in a dry environment, this GMC is free from any major corrosion but its time in the sun has resulted in patches of clearcoat peel, which is typical of many GM vehicles of this era. Inside, the seats show with some minor wear from use, but largely the inside presents well. Under the hood, the intake system has been modified as to allow more efficient breathing into the turbocharger.

One of the fastest cars GM had made during the period, the Typhoon and Syclone pair flipped the motoring world on its head when there straight line performance rivaled Italian supercars. Today, these vehicles are highly sought after by enthusiasts and clean, low mileage examples will continue to be collectors items into the following decades.
