How audacious is the GMC Typhoon? It’s an SUV that can’t go off-road but can out-accelerate a contemporary Ferrari. With tenacious grip from a full-time all-wheel drive system, it can pull nearly 0.8 Gs on a skidpad—and this with a live rear axle sitting on leaf springs. It even uses a relatively common powerplant, the GM 4300 V6, and bolts on an intercooled turbocharger to make totally uncommon horsepower. The 280 horses on tap allow the Typhoon to do things unthinkable for an SUV before its introduction, like blasting to 60 mph in 5.3 seconds. A sleeper, however, the Typhoon is not. Slammed low to the ground and sporting a full aero kit, it couldn’t possibly be mistaken for the stock GMC Jimmy that it is based off of, even at a distance. That’s not such a bad thing, though, as the Typhoon is a truck that backs up its show with an unexpected amount of go, for an unexpectedly audacious experience.
