In the early 90s, mixing the 3 words “performance sport truck” was not even considered like today’s horsepower hungry consumer. A pickup truck was designed to haul heavy loads and made to essentially get dirty and get the daily grind done. So to make a pickup truck into anything beyond what it was designed for was considered absolutely absurd at the time. Step in GMC. Forming a partnership with Production Automotive Services (PAS) – think 89 Turbo Trans Am – both companies set out to make a nonsense idea into a reality.
The 91 and 92-93 GMC Syclone and Typhoon trucks are considered the high-performance variant of the Sonoma and Jimmy model trucks. Additional to the SyTy, the non-turbo but sporty 92 Sonoma GT with its “Syclone appearance” made up the 3rd truck of the Sportmachine trio.1991 GMC Syclone Info
