GMC Syclone Overview
The GMC Syclone is a high performance pickup truck produced in 1991. Back in the 90s the Syclone had set the benchmark real high. GMC claimed it to be ‘quickest accelerating pickup truck’ and ‘Fastest Pickup Truck ever made’ and the performance figure of the Syclone prove it to all. It is a rare find as less than 3,000 Syclone are ever made. The pick-up was only offered in the Black shade by the OEM. The GMC Syclone was a stree racing machine. The company had strictly prohibited to take it for off-roading. Yes you read it right, it was a pickup truck but can’t off-road. The performance figures speaks for the vehicle itself.
