    Typhoon History

The Typhoon is a very similar machine the syclone, only based on the GMC Jimmy. 2500 were made in 1992, and 2200 in 1993. It has the same exterior treatment, turbo 4.3L V-6, 700R4 tranny, and AWD system as the Syclone. Due to the added weight from the SUV body, it's a wee bit slower then it's open-bed sibling.
