The original GMC Syclone was a vehicle beastly in its own right. A 1991 mid-size Sonoma pickup turned muscle truck, it had a heavily modified 4.3-liter V6 engine. Not only that, it also boasted a turbocharger, an intercooler, and modified internals. All those made for 280 ponies and 350 pound-feet of torque.
The GMC Syclone’s engine came with a four-speed automatic, rear-backed all-wheel drive and and four-wheel antilock brakes. On top of which, it also had an all-black paint job and a lowered ride height that made it look as formidable as its respectable zero to 60 time of 4.3 seconds.
While the Syclone is of no interest to GMC itself anymore, that doesn’t mean others aren’t keen on this ride, still. Specialty Vehicle Engineering is reviving the car with 100 new builds, which it will base on the GMC Canyon. With more horsepower, of course.
The 2019 SVE GMC Syclone will once again sport a V6 engine, this time a 3.6-liter paired with a supercharger and a custom cat-back exhaust system. There are more ponies now, too — 455 from the stock 306. There are also chassis and brake upgrades, plus rear or all-wheel drive options. SVE replaced the standard four-piston units with six-piston front calipers. It also replaced the slotted front rotors with 13.6-inch new ones.
SVE also lowered the suspension by two inches up front and five inches at the rear. It added stiffer traction bars, bars, brushings, and dampers, as well. Various colors will be available and pricing will start at $39,995. That’s just the package, though, the truck excluded. Hit the link below to learn more.MORE INFO HERE
