2019 GMC Syclone 455 HP Sport Truck Re-Imagined from SVE


Coming to a GMC dealer near you is the 2019 GMC Syclone packing 455 HP. Lowered, blacked out and ready to roll, this sport truck is a throwback to when these trucks were stock from factory.

The group at Specialty Vehicle Engineering built this truck for those sport truck fans who have gone without for so long. It seems that while automakers have turned a blind eye to sport trucks, fans haven’t and neither have modifiers.

This truck looks great to us and we only wish there was some video of it doing a long burnout. We guess we’ll just have to use our imagination.

Here is the official press release with all the details:

Toms River, NJ, April 15th, 2019 – Specialty Vehicle Engineering is pleased to announce the 2019 SYCLONE, the most Iconic Performance Truck ever, now powered by a 455HP supercharged 3.6L V-6 engine. Only 100 Limited Edition, outrageously fast, 2019 SYCLONE Sport Trucks will be built, based on the 2019 GMC Canyon 2WD and 4WD extended cab truck, in all factory colors, and numbered from 1-100.

To properly balance the awesome power of the Supercharged 3.6L V-6, the SYCLONE includes a High Performance Brake Upgrade that features 6 – Piston Forged Front Calipers (stock is 4) in red, w/black SYCLONE graphics, and two-piece 13.6” diameter (stock is 12.2”) Slotted Front Rotors, to provide serious stopping power. Handling is enhanced by the addition of our Sport Suspension Package that lowers the truck 2” up front, 5” in the rear, and includes HD Traction Bars, HD Spring Bushings, Higher-Rated Front and Rear Performance Shock Absorbers, and a HD Rear Sway Bar. A Stainless Steel Cat-Back Dual Exit Exhaust System increases performance while providing a true sports car-like sound. Additional performance upgrades include 20” x 9” front and rear 5 spoke Alloy Wheels w/SYCLONE graphics on one spoke, and Y-rated front and rear performance tires.

Exterior features include unique OEM-Quality Composite Hood Insert w/455HP Chrome and Red Badges, Body-Color Composite Rocker Panel Extensions, OEM-Quality SYCLONE Door and Tailgate Badges, Body Color Front Grill Surround, Grill Bars, and Rear Bumper.

Interior upgrades include Custom Seat Trim Package featuring red SYCLONE Graphics Embroidered on Seat Back, Custom Front Floor Mats w/red SYCLONE Logo Embroidered on Mats, numbered SYCLONE Dash Plaque (1-100) with 455HP called out, and two SYCLONE numbered Key Fobs. Each of these 100 vehicles will include a numbered Manufacturer’s Certificate of Origin.

according to Roadshow, it’ll cost you $39,995 on top of the cost of the donor truck. That means a total starting price of around $63,000. According to Roadshow, the truck will be available to order via your local GMC dealer.
