In 1991, GMC released the Syclone - a limited production S-15 Sonoma with AWD, a turbocharged and intercooled 4.3 V6, and port fuel injection. The production run lasted only one year, but in 1992-1993 GMC put the same powertrain in a limited run of S-15 Jimmy's - the Typhoon.

From a Syclone/Typhoon Website:
Built by PAS (Production Automotive Services - Troy, MI, also built the 89 TTA), the Syclone, Typhoon, and S-GT had the distinction of being the quickest production trucks ever to roll off the assemly line.

Both the Syclone and Typhoon utilize a 4.3L Turbocharged Vortec V6, pushing out 285+ HP (disputed to be 330) with 360ft/lbs of torque, with a liquid-cooled intercooler. A multiport fuel system feeds the motor while a TH700R4 automatic transmission puts power down to the AWD drivetrain. 0-60 times range from under 5 seconds (even in the rain!) to a quarter mile time of low/high 13's for the Syclone and mid 13's to low 14's for the Typhoon in stock form. The Syclone's ONLY production year was in 1991 with an estimated 2995 units built, while the Typhoon lasted from 1992-93 with 2500 units built in 92 and 2200 units built in 93. Both trucks feature a specialized ground effects package (known as cladding) and turbine style 16x8 aluminum rims. The Syclone's interior features plush cloth bucket seats with the "Syclone" badge embroidered into the headrest, along with door inserts to match while the 92 Typhoon's feature leather/cloth seats with headrest "Typhoon"embroidery and the 93 features full leather interior with power seats and overhead console. The trucks feature center console holds the leather shifter while a gauge cluster from a Sunbird GT keeps you informed of engine vitals and boost.

The Syclone is one bad truck. Its an S10(or GMC Sonoma for those that are real picky) with AWD and a turbo V6. Correct me if I'm wrong but it had a Corvette center console and shifter. And the Typhoon was the S10 Blazer (GMC Jimmy)version of it. The thing that sucks about them is that you can not tow anything with them or have more than 500 lbs of cargo in them. But not like you want to use them for work anyway.:burn:
Here is the Syclone.


Here is the Typhoon.

There were 4 1992 Syclones produced. The very first 92 blk/blk (#0001) was crash tested and now resides in a private junkyard in New York rusting away, another red/red 92 exists and is privately owned in the northern U.S., one went to a muesuem, and one last still cannot be accounted for and its whereabouts are unknown to this time.
