    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?

    Cause GM no longer cares about making cars you and I want to drive, they only care about the mighty $ and manufacture bland, boring, overpriced turds.
    They lost their soul, and now there is only greed left.
    Dodge? What about the Raptor?

    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!

    4.3 is not emissions certified for use in the Colorado.

    These are handbuilt one offs limited to 100 units, built by a 3rd party, it wouldn't take them but a minute to make it work.

    Hell, I read 455 HP & thought they swapped the Gen V LT1 into it. Saw it had a S/C 3.6 & the thrill left quickly. But, knowing SLP...I mean SVE, it will be more exciting than we imagine.

    They could probably use the limited vehicle manufacturer loophole to bypass that government certification.

    Let me think. Fully optioned extended cab Canyon 2WD (37K) or 4WD ($40K), S/C kit ($7K), big brake kit ($4K), suspension upgrades ($6K), cat-back exhaust ($2K). Wheels look like Vision Milani 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.
