Post Motortrend "Shelter from the Storm" 1992 GMC Typho 
EDIT I forgot the video, here it is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=unXr2VYAMb4

280hp/350lb/ft torque@3600rpm
AWD 35%/65% F/R torque bias
0-60mph=5.3 seconds(BTW this is the same 0-60 time as a 98-02 LS1 powered 6 speed manual trans F-Body Camaro/Firebird)
1/4 mile ET 14.1 seconds
1/4 mile trap speed 94mph (best mph my 97 rcsb L31/4l60e has ever trapped)
ride height adjustment on Typhoon that isn't found on the Syclone truck
Front disc/rear drum full ABS 50-0mph braking in 103 feet
EPA fuel economy 15mpg city/19mpg highway
Test mileage 17mpg 93 octane (R+M)/2 is required
Manually operated squeeze bulb (like on a sphygmomanometer-aka blood pressure cuff) inflates the sea side bolsters
base price $29,470


Since we are in the turbocharged GMC frame of mind, here is an old Topgear episode featuring the Typhoons lighter brother, the GMC Syclone
(Car & Driver specs)
0-60mph 4.6 seconds
1/4 mile ET 13.6 seconds
1/4 mile speed 93 mph (weird how the Syclones trap speed is lower than the Typhoons)
