1991 GMC Syclone Pickup Truck - Jay Leno's Garage

Published on Jul 26, 2015 1,081,586 views

Only about 3,000 of these sporty pickups were built in 1991, which is when Jay bought his - primarily because of GMC's boast that this was the fastest accelerating production vehicle in America, beating out even the Ferrari 348!

    olikat8 Год назад I have a '99 Regal GS with the Eaton SC, bought it new using a factory discount from SMCO. It is now pretty far from stock- drive train, brakes, suspension, and wheel/tires all have been taken up a few notches. Great all-around car and definitely a weird American car from the '90s

  • Patrick Simmons
    Patrick Simmons 3 года назад +igot2muchfreetime You're referring to the Callaway Corvettes. Kind of a precursor to Lingenfelter...
  • joytech22
    joytech22 3 года назад @Isaac Munoz Ford Australia and Holden(GM) still make similar vehicles today, via the Ford Falcon FGX ute (or FPV F6 310(6Cyl)/335(8Cyl) Utes for performance version) and Holden's VF ute (HSV GTS ute for performance version) The Ford utes can still hold 500+ kilos and tow 1.6T (that probably increases for non-performance versions to 2.3T), not sure of specs on Holden's versions. The quickest you'll probably get 0-60 in either would be 4.4s, give or take a hundredth which isn't so bad considering they weigh more than 1.8T and RWD.
  • igot2muchfreetime

  • Tucker's DJ Mixtape Podcast
    Tucker's DJ Mixtape Podcast 3 года назад @igot2muchfreetime No they didn't. You're referring to aftermarket tuner companies that sold highly modified Corvettes for often more than double the price of a stock Vette.
  • igot2muchfreetime
    igot2muchfreetime 3 года назад They did make a twin turbo vette in 1987, and it was available until 1991.
  • 3rd Gen Guy
    3rd Gen Guy 3 года назад @Isaac Munoz turbos are the future
  • Isaac Munoz
    Isaac Munoz 3 года назад Im glad they didnt turbo up their vettes. Nothing like a naturally aspirated American engine.
  • 3rd Gen Guy
    3rd Gen Guy 3 года назад @Maindrian Pace that 1,300hp 5.3L is still alive today. 60 WoT pulls zero issues
  • 3rd Gen Guy
    3rd Gen Guy 3 года назад @truantray except the C7. That blew everyone away. Even jermy clackson loved the new C7, and he is a notorious corvette hater
  • okleydokley
    okleydokley 3 года назад @SANIC the history of Corvette can be summed up with, "almost good".
  • Maindrian Pace
    Maindrian Pace 3 года назад @SANIC Those combos run like crazy, but they are fragile. Factory combos have to pass factory durability tests - I don't know about GM, but with Ford, the engine is run at full RPM and full power on a dyno for 50 straight hours. On teardown, it can show no wear. Pretty nuts.
  • S&D Reviews
    S&D Reviews 3 года назад @COYOUTDOORS they also almost put rotarys into the vettes aswell.
  • 3rd Gen Guy
    3rd Gen Guy 3 года назад @COYOUTDOORS but they didn't. And still stuck to super chargers. A turbocharged LS engine would be insane. I mean guys are making 1000+ from junkyard 5.3L imagine the top end vette engine.
    COYOUTDOORS 3 года назад @SANIC they almost did in the early 80's
  • 3rd Gen Guy
    3rd Gen Guy 3 года назад @Isaac Munoz it blows my mind that GM didn't use any turbo tech in their corvettes.

    HIP HOP 3 года назад I used to work at a gmc dealership 15 years ago and a customer had brought this in for service and i was a lot porter at the time and i wasnt aware of the history of this truck until one day the service writer told me to drive it for a few miles to get the engine going after it was repaired and man was i not prepared for the power of this truck! Lol! I stepped on the pedal and man that thing took off like a rocket! I was amazed by this little truck and its turbo power! And today i find this video and never was aware that this truck is rare and they only made a few of them.smh! It was a memorable experience driving this truck only 1 time. lol!

  • The Clot Thickens
    The Clot Thickens 7 месяцев назад Both GM and Ford made these types of vehicles in Australia for 50+ years. They never attempted to sell them in the US because they didn't want to steal sales from the pick ups. We call them utes (sport utility) down here.

  • Dar70
    Dar70 3 года назад Is there never any bitching from you guys. We get a free show about cars on youtube. An excellent informative show at that. No commercials and hosted by one of the best know hosts of all time and a huge car guys to boot and all you wussies do is complain. He has 200 vehicles(maybe some arent worthy enough right now to be on the show as well) if this show is to last for a good amount of time he has to have guests with their cars. Cars that he doesnt have and is interested in seeing them as well. I enjoy his comments on others vehicles as well as his test drives of them. Jesus christ so many of you do nothing but complain week after

  • Geoff Gyro
    Geoff Gyro 3 года назад Excellent show Jay. I didn't know anything about this truck. Very cool. This is what I like about Leno's Garage. This is a program for real car enthusiasts and a fantastic digital record for many future generation to appreciate. This is not you typical car program with elite cars drifting around corners scrubbing off the treads. This is an educational channel. Thanks Jay.
