Since the Typhoon was on the market for an extra year, its manufacturing numbers were higher than those of its truck sibling, the Syclone, which only saw 2,995 units produced in 1991. The 1992 base price of $29,530 would be equivalent to $55,750 in today’s money.

Jeep’s 4.0-liter Cherokee has been the top dog in the sport-utility lighting drags. Of ten Cherokee owners, eight would reply, “It’s a fast mutha. ” The modern 4.0-liter straight six produces 190 horsepower, enough for 0-60 mph times of 8.2 seconds. The sum is remarkable for a four-by-four. Very impressive, but hardly shocking in any way.

The GMC Typhoon’s acceleration on a roll is just as stunning as its acceleration from a stoplight, such as while passing an 18-wheeler on a narrow two-lane. When in top gear, the Typhoon has one of the fastest acceleration times we’ve ever observed, with a sprint from 30 miles per hour to fifty miles per hour taking just 2.9 seconds. The truck driver will be certain he was recently buzzed by an alien spaceship.

The base price of $29,530 will get you a vehicle that towers over the competition, has enough storage space for a month’s worth of groceries, pampers its occupants with leather trim and power appointments, ploughs through snow and ice with ease, grabs attention at every stoplight, and can keep up with the likes of the Corvette LT1 and the Nissan 300ZX Turbo in terms of straight-line speed.
