New Jersey-based mostly tuner Specialty Car Engineering (SVE) is offering its 750-hp mid-dimension pickup truck an encore.
The truck is SVE’s contemporary edition of the GMC Syclone, based mostly on the present GMC Canyon. SVE launched its Syclone in 2019 with a 455-hp supercharged V-six, then swapped that for a 750-hp supercharged V-eight for 2021. Manufacturing was restricted to 50 trucks, but SVE now programs to construct 50 much more for the 2022 model yr.
As just before, the muscle is presented by a Standard Motors’ L83 five.three-liter V-eight, which also creates 600 lb-ft of torque. The engine sports activities an aluminum block, forged internals, customized cylinder heads, a higher-movement fuel technique, and a higher-movement stainless steel exhaust. It powers all 4 wheels via an eight-velocity automated transmission.

SVE also upgrades the suspension, decreasing the trip height, and incorporating new bushings and a hefty-duty rear sway bar. The firm equips the Syclone with six-piston front brake calipers and 13.six-inch front rotors, but employs stock rear brakes. The twenty-inch wheels are wrapped in Nitto NT420V 275/54R20 tires front and rear.
Styling alterations incorporate a vented hood, buyer rocker panels, “Syclone” badging, and prominent dual exhaust guidelines. The interior will get dressed up with an offered leather package deal, new floor mats, and a numbered dash plaque.
The unique 1991 GMC Syclone had a turbocharged four.three-liter V-six alternatively of a V-eight, but when it launched, this tuned GMC Sonoma was even now the quickest-accelerating automobile from -60 mph, at just beneath four.five seconds. GMC later on utilized the identical formula to generate the Typhoon SUV, but quickly gave up on muscle trucks. Today’s GMC Canyon AT4 focuses on off-roading, as does the approaching GMC Hummer EV, despite the fact that the latter also has a claimed -60 mph time of three. seconds.
