About GMC Typhoon

With a reminiscent of a ground effects-equipped cinder block shape, GMC Typhoon was produced by an American multinational corporation General Motors Company's GMC Division of General Motors LLC from 1991 to 1993 as a mid-size Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV). Originally introduced to compete against the performance vehicles such as the Ferrari 348ts, Chevrolet Corvette LT1 and the Nissan 300ZX Turbo, Typhoon was actually a high-performance version of the GMC Jimmy SUV. However, though Typhoon was a nice vehicle that could accommodate four people and their luggage, it was eventually replaced by the Chevrolet Trailblazer SS.
GMC Typhoon made its debut in 1991 as a 1992 model and was built based on the 1991 Jimmy. It was a very practical vehicle with a back seat and an enclosed cargo area. Featured upgraded brakes and an air-operated self-leveling rear suspension, Typhoon was also available in various color configurations that differed by years such as white, blue, teal, forest green and red, with black being the most common. During its lifetime, GMC Typhoon was powered by a 4.3 L turbo V6 engine rated at 280 hp and 360 lb-ft of torque and this engine sent power through a 4-speed automatic transmission to all wheels.
