For Sale: 1993 GMC Typhoon in Salt Lake City, Utah

Vehicle Description

1993 GMC Typhoon 2 Dr Turbo AWD SUV

Like the GMC Syclone, the Typhoon is powered by a 4.3 L LB4 V6 engine with unique pistons, main caps, head gaskets, intake manifolds, fuel system, exhaust manifolds, and a 48mm twin bore throttle body from the 5.7 L GM Small-Block engine. With this engine, the Typhoon produces 280 hp (209 kW) and 350 lb�ft (475 N�m) of torque. The engine is a modified version of the Vortec engine found in the standard Jimmy, which originally produced 190 hp (142 kW). The engine uses a Mitsubishi TD06-17C/8 cm2 turbocharger producing 14 psi of boost and a Garrett Water/Air intercooler, as well as revised intake manifolds, fuel system, exhaust manifolds, and a 48 mm (2 in) twin-bore throttle body from the 5.7 L GM Small-Block engine. The Typhoon sends power to all four wheels through a 4L60 4-speed automatic transmission and a BorgWarner 4472 (the Syclone used a BorgWarner 1372) transfer case splitting torque with 35% forward and 65% to the rear wheels. Other features include upgraded brakes, a limited slip rear differential and sport modifications to the standard suspensions. Unlike the Syclone, the Typhoon featured an air-operated self-leveling rear suspension. The GMC Typhoon is a high-performance SUV, produced from 1991 to 1993 by GMC. The Typhoon was based on the 1991 GMC Jimmy. During tests by Car and Driver, the Typhoon was capable of accelerating from 0-60 mph in 5.3 seconds, and could do a quarter-mile run in 14.1 seconds at 95 mph. Car and Driver compared the Typhoon's performance favorably to the Ferrari 348ts, Chevrolet Corvette, and Nissan 300ZX Turbo.
