In a tribute to the first-generation GMC Syclone, Specialty Vehicle Engineering has debuted its new 2021 Limited Edition V8 supercharged Syclone with full-time all-wheel drive and a 5.3-liter V8 engine under the hood.

The truck’s 5.3-liter V8 engine delivers 750 horsepower and 600 lb.-ft. of torque and features a blueprinted L83 aluminum block; computer-balanced, race-quality rotating assembly including forged 1538MV twisted steel crankshaft; forged H-beam rods; forged aluminum pistons; modified L83 high flow cylinder heads with ARP high- strength head and main studs; our own OEM-quality centrifugal supercharger with a 33% larger 8-rib belt drive system; an upgraded high and low pressure fuel system with high-flow injectors; state-of-the-art high efficiency air-to-water intercooler system; and custom stainless steel exhaust system with high-flow cats. The truck also has full-time all-wheel drive.

Based off the 2021 Canyon extended cab/short bed truck, and available in any factory color, only 50 of the trucks will be available.

The optional leather seat trim package features a leather surround with a leather insert and is available in two colors to match the available factory interior colors. The leather seat trim packages are accented by red and white stitching on black seats and black and white stitching on Cocoa Dune seats, with the Syclone V8 Supercharged logo embroidered in red on the front headrests.
