Vehicle Description

This is a vehicle that pioneered an entire market segment – a segment that’s red hot today with no signs of slowing down.  The GMC Typhoon was the first high performance SUV. About 10 years elapsed before the next one appeared, but today nearly every premium brand has one.  Names like Mercedes, Bentley, Porsche, and Jaguar all have an entry in the segment, some priced well over a hundred thousand dollars. The Typhoon was about the quickest vehicle made in America back then, and it could outrun many of the heavy hitters from Europe too.  It’s fast even by today’s standards, with a 0-60 time around 5.4 seconds. As the granddaddy of performance SUVs the Typhoon has carved out its place in automotive history, and they are becoming highly sought-after. The turbocharged 4.3L V6 cranks out 280 horsepower, again pretty much the high water mark in 1993.  One secret to the Typhoons killer performance is its all-wheel drive system. Tuned for street performance, it helps to harness all the horses for ultra quick takeoffs. A 700R4 automatic was the only transmission option, and wisely so. Lots of power with lots of traction would make clutch life short. This one-owner example sports the most popular color combo of black on black.  A handsome black leather interior compliments the high gloss basecoat/clearcoat black paint. It features bucket seats and a center console, power steering, brakes, windows, and locks, and a tilt column, plus cruise control and air conditioning. It has unique aluminum wheels with 245/50R16 performance tires. The Typhoon easily stands the test of time, because it was ahead of its time.
