Syclone Blows Into GMC Dealerships

After 27 years, second-stage vehicle manufacturer Specialty Vehicle Engineering has announced the return of the iconic GMC Syclone performance pickup.

Now powered by a 455-hp supercharged 3.6-liter V-6 engine, the Syclone release will be capped at 100 Limited Edition vehicles available at select GMC dealerships. The sport trucks will be based on 2019 GMC Canyon 2WD and 4WD extended cab models and offered in all factory colors.

Enhancements include a high-performance brake upgrade that features 6-piston forged front calipers in red with black Syclone graphics, and two-piece, 13.6-inch-diameter slotted front rotors.

Handling is improved by the addition of a Sport Suspension Package that lowers the truck 2 inches up front and 5 inches in the rear and includes heavy-duty traction bars, spring bushings and rear sway bar, plus higher-rated front and rear performance shock absorbers.

A stainless steel cat-back, dual-exit exhaust system adds performance while providing a true sports car-like sound. Wheel and tire upgrades include 20×9 front and rear five-spoke alloy wheels with Syclone graphics on one spoke, and Y-rated front and rear performance tires.

Exterior features include a unique, OEM-quality composite hood insert with 455HP chrome and red badges, body-color composite rocker panel extensions, OEM-quality door and tailgate badges, body color front grille surround, grille bars and rear bumper.

The interior features a custom seat trim package with red Syclone graphics embroidered on the seat backs, custom front logo floor mats, numbered dash plaque (1-100) with 455HP called out, and two Syclone numbered key fobs.

Each of the 100 vehicles will include a numbered Manufacturer’s Certificate of Origin.
