Pony Car: an affordable, compact, highly styled car with a sporty or performance-oriented image and an available V8.
GM needs to offer these specialty versions, not some aftermarket company. Dodge has shown that people will pay a premium for these vehicles. Why doesn't GM do the same?

That would definitely get me test-driving something I'd otherwise not consider (midsized truck), but I know GM will never build something so awesome and bold anymore, so I'm safe, life can resume as normal.

Article is wrong, original Syclone was turbocharged, not supercharged, but beyond that, really disappointed they didn't swap in a 4.3L for these, it's right there, it's such an obvious choice!!!

Came in prepared to hate it and I really like it.
It has to be more exciting and fun to drive than 95% of GM's lineup and for sure better than any SUV/Truck they produce.
A 4.3 turbo or even an LS would be more appropriate but who really cares it's not going to happen.

The Syclone is far too cool for GM these days, I don't want them bringing that name back and making it some stupid sticker package. Rather see it left for dead then *******ized which is what todays GM would do with it most likely!
The Canyon is starting to look real dated.
So when everything is said and done you're looking at an $80k truck?.....pass
Switchback wheels (cost about $250/wheel) & they will probably charge $2K to the price of the truck. And there is no mention of the brand & style of tire they will use. Could be the brand & size used for the Denali (a P255/55/20, not very sporty) or something more performance oriented. So,we tally up at least $58K for the 2WD & $61K for the 4WD. Just my guestimate.
Also, some people have mentioned how the first Syclone was a GMC product. But, don't forget that 3rd party company PAS had a big hand in developing the Sy. SVE is taking on a similar role here.
Whatever the gig or origin it's a seriously good looking ride.
I want to like it, but too many compromises from what would've been an appropriate successor.
