1993 GMC Typhoon Turbo 2dr SUV AWD


Review

I first came in contact with this beast almost when they came out and I could not keep my eyes off it. As soon as I could find a good example of one, I bought. Best purchase I ever made.I believe that you only go around in life once, so you shouldn't cheat yourself out of an experience like this. Buy it, have some fun with it, and sell it so someone else can have some fun. Don't be greedy.


Favorite Features

Awesome stance, good ride, nice interior, great performance for the everyday man.


Suggested Improvements

Warning for other drivers to beware.

Review

My first car when I was 16 was a 1984 S-10 Blazer. The Typhoon was always the dream. When living in Europe, I found one in the classified. Sceptical, I embarked on a 500 KM trip to see it for myself. Upon the opening of the garage I fell in love. The 4.3 turbo screamed down tiny German country roads, and its AWD hugged the winding roads effortlessly. Coupled with 18" 16 spoke OZ tires, the ground spoilers, side skirts and tinted windows, the car was a knockout beauty.Thanks GMC.


Favorite Features

The exterior is what really stands out upon first seeing the car. But its interior is truly luxurious. Not leaving any facet of the car to the ho-hum, a 4.3l turbo powers the AWD, whose 30 front / 70 rear power split perfectly tears up winding roads and drag strips alike. FUN FUN FUN.


Suggested Improvements

It looks so good outside, all that's really needed are clearlights and new wheels. The inside is immaculate, however a new stereo would almost be a necessity.

Review

I did a ton of research before buying my 93 typhoon on ebay. I read about how they are insanely fast yet comfortable. when I got it I realized that although its extremely highly rated, its still underrated. its faster than car & driver says. in fact its the most amazing car I've ever driven. I don't beat camaros and vipers... I HUMILIATE them. it's not even a contest. it looks amazing without being pretentious like a ferrari or mclaren. at the end of the day I can't believe I own one, especially knowing how its even more insane than the magazines or anyone else knows.

TRACTION IS INSANE. LAUNCH WHILE SWITCHING LANES!
