1992 GMC Typhoon
It's hard to find a better collector car from the 1990s than the GMC Typhoon, and they don't get more collector-grade than this all-black example. After all, with all the aggressive bodywork so well-preserved on this low-mileage performance SUV, you might never find such a factory-fresh example at such an affordable price.
GMC perfectly tapped into the premium/sporty/custom SUV world that would be popular before the end of the decade. This example has a great monotone look with the bumpers, grille, and aggressive body kit finished in its slick factory black. And this is more than just the factory-correct color. It's the original paint that has been babied since day one. So even a quarter-century later, and this one still can deliver a showroom-level of shine. This is a full midnight package with all the blacked-out trim and tinted windows. And those factory alloys are like beefier versions of the Corvette's buzzsaw wheels. So while the low production numbers already make this one desirable (less than 1,300 in this color combo,) it's this high level of preserved style that makes it irresistible.
Inside are more great touches that turn this SUV into a sports car. Bucket seats, center console, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel are exactly what you want in a performance machine. And best of all, this Typhoon is both loaded and nicely preserved. The black leather front seats power adjust to the perfect driving position. And averaging less than 1,600 miles annually means there has been little time to give them any wear. Everything is within easy reach, including the air conditioning controls, power windows, power locks, tilt wheel, cruise control, and factory AM/FM/CD stereo (an expensive option in 1992). And since this modern classic is in fine condition to show off at car shows, the split glass/tailgate makes this your perfect tailgating buddy.
What makes the Typhoon a true classic is under the hood. The 4.3-liter motor in the Blazer/Jimmy was upgraded to supercar status thanks to a Mitsubishi turbocharger and Garrett intercooler. These were specialty low-number vehicles delivered directly to the dealer, and so it's great this package still looks so tidy. Turning a beefy SUV into a muscle machine required more than just boosting the motor. This fuel-injected powerplant was also fortified to handle the extra power. Plus, the Borg Warner all-wheel drive transfer case has a rear weight bias to give the perfect balance between performance driving and superior grip. That same balance is found in the four-speed automatic transmission that can downshift for power and then return to overdrive cruising comfort. Add in power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, Michelin Pilot performance tires, and an upgraded suspension, and this is the SUV with all the right moves to take on the streets.
Complete with the original window sticker and full owner's manual packet, this is an exceptionally well-preserved example of one of the best new classics around. That's why you know you can enjoy it today and watch the admiration grow into tomorrow. And at a price like this, you're going to need to hurry if you want this in your garage. Call today!!!
