GMC’s Typhoon debuted in ’92 as the high-performance variant of the Jimmy SUV. An aggressive body kit and unique wheels were cues that you weren’t looking at an everyday SUV. After the engine fired up, the rapidly shrinking taillights confirmed that this wasn’t an ordinary, grocery-getter. Output was rated at 280 horsepower and performance was comparable to contemporary Ferraris and Corvettes, with 0-60 mph times at 5.3 seconds.
This first-year GMC Typhoon has been used as a daily driver during the past two years and 15,000 miles. Aber’s GMC in Ashland, OH rebuilt the engine and transmission prior to current ownership. A stock turbo replaced the original unit around the same time.
Previous owners upgraded the Typhoon with some cool features, including Walbro fuel pump, Accufab billet adjustable fuel pressure regulator, transmission fluid cooler, rear sway bar, heavy-duty Gilbert front driveshaft and a cluster of Autometer gauges. Anything for performance, right? In the last two years and 15k miles, all the seller needed to replace were the a/c switch, starter and rear bumper after a minor accident. A new alternator, serpentine belt and tune up take care of the recent maintenance.
Bidding starts at $9k, compared with an original MSRP of $29,470. Typical price guide valuations range from $7k to $14k. Click here to see the listing.
