SVE Announces 750-Horsepower 2022 GMC Syclone22
New Jersey-based tuner Specialty Vehicle Engineering (SVE) has announced the new 2022 GMC Syclone, a supercharged, all-wheel-drive pickup monster throwing down a whopping 750 horsepower.
Taking after the spirit of the original GMC Syclone produced in the early ‘90s, the new 2022 GMC Syclone from SVE stuffs big power and performance into a 2022 GMC Canyon Elevation Standard extended cab pickup truck.
Under the hood, the new SVE GMC Syclone swaps the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGZ for a new 5.3L V8, including a blueprinted L83 aluminum block, a balanced and race-quality rotating assembly with a 1538MV twisted-steel crankshaft, forged H-beam rods and forged aluminum pistons, and upgraded L83 high-flow cylinder heads. Making the boost is SVE’s centrifugal supercharger, while final touches include a new fuel system with high-flow injectors, an air-to-water intercooler, and a custom stainless steel exhaust system with dual outlets.
Put it all together for a pavement-twisting 750 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque, all of which reaches the ground through a full-time all-wheel drive system. SVE also swapped in a new transfer case and added heavy-duty driveshafts, with an upgraded 8L90E automatic transmission on hand for the cog swaps. To keep it all shiny side up, the new 2022 GMC Syclone from SVE receives a full suspension upgrade with a lowered ride height, new sway bars, and new bushings.
Outside, the SVE pickup is offered in any of the factory GM colors, while in the corners we find unique 20-inch six-spoke wheels with a design that was inspired by the original and fitted with Nitto rubber. A new hood insert and badging round out the style.
Inside, there’s an optional leather seat trim package with a leather surround and insert, available in two colors to match the available factory interior colors. The cabin also includes the Syclone V8 Supercharged logo embroidered into the headrests.
SVE says it’ll build only 50 units of its new 2022 GMC Syclone. Specific pricing info was not released.

That’s an awesome truck if I had the money I buy one of the 50. GM should have enough balls to build a performance truck like this I guarantee it would be a good seller you could offer the GMC Cyclone like this truck then make the little Terrain a Typhoon model would be nice halo vehicles for the GMC brand which it needs instead of the GMC Hummer.
Chevy Man, as far as I am concerned, you are absolutely correct!!! General Motors definitely needs a “performance” truck line to replace the old and dilapidated Hummer. GM needs to replace the Hummer just about as bad as your comment needs a few commas and periods!!! Now, with that being said, PLEASE note that I, most certainly, come in peace and mean absolutely no disrespect, whatsoever, with my constructive criticism!!! It is up to you to decide, whether or not, to take it or leave it. Punctuation, even at a minimal amount, helps to make it easier and more pleasant, for our minds, to read. I thought that my brain hurt, there for a minute or two, after deciphering when and where I needed to pause, while reading your comment. I, myself, am open to some constructive criticism, as well. Please do not hesitate to let me have it, but only if it is needed. With that, I hope you have a wonderful day today!!!
I have one that is the 2021 year truck. Has engine damage. Had so many problems with it that I had it shipped back to SVE in New Jersey to get it fixed right. They are building a new engine. They have had it for over a month. Be careful what you wish for. Probably be sometime in March before I got it backs.
Ralph sorry to hear! I have heard these trucks are complete garbage. This is not a GM built machine, a third party is doing the work and applying the name. If you desire something like this, buy a Canyon, and take it to a local performance shop to have it super charged and lowered. Probably come out money ahead.
This is what GM should focus on. A performance street truck. LT4 or LT5 in the Silverado and Sierra. Not another lifted truck.
I love this truck with a blown 5.3L.
Ralph it’s a performance machine in my history with any performance car something is always bound to go wrong… My friend had a 383 stroker professionally built and blue printed by Pat Muci racing engines and the engine had major problems from when it was brand new and it had to be rebuilt, the new C8 Corvette from the factory had engine problems… It’s a performance vehicle not a grocery getter anytime you add more power to ANY Engine your putting more strain on said engine… Which is why I don’t like all these new turbo charged 4 and 6 cylinder engines already Ford is having problems with the F150 twin turbo V6 and the turbos in all these new cars no matter the brand just don’t have the reliability or longevity of a naturally aspirated engines do. I wish instead of turbo 4 cylinders the car companies would just offer the V6 again as a more powerful engine.
Maybe this will push Chevy to build the Silverado “SS” that I have been waiting for !!!!
They’ll build it … except it’ll have ultium batteries and electric motors, instead of the desired V8 throaty rumble!
As a previous Typhoon owner with lots of Syclone-owning friends and gettogethers, I see the problems as very consistent with the original design. Those trucks were extremely unreliable and problematic. Way to stay true to the original 😉
Yep…. what Chevy Man says…. too much stress to turbo a 4 banger…. got rid of my 2019 Equinox for a 6 cylinder Blazer. Much smoother action this way. That twin turbo 1.4 broke a spark plug at 1100 miles. Just a Whining Time Bomb. All about Fleet Mileage or some other BS like that.
Ron W. The price premium you pay and the MPG is made up for in the longevity of the V6 Non turbo engine it has been proven that a naturally aspirated engine will outlast a turbo engine… Unless it’s a diesel but diesel engines are more heavy duty this they last longer and they can stand up to the strain of a turbo… A wimpy 1.5 liter turbo or commuter car V6 Turbo is the 4 cylinder is trying through the turbo charger to give you V6 power and the turbo is trying hard to give you V8 power that’s why turbos always fail and should only be used for performance vehicles not for everyday commuter vehicles.
When GM is redesigning entire models and installing 3 cylinder engines in so many models to get more mpg they are not going to add higher performance engine to a truck they will only sell a limited number of.
Even the Syclone and Typhoon were sold in very small number and probably made little money.
These are cool exercises but at a critical time when chip shortages are impacting profits projects like this are not approved.
The present truck while not a race car is as fast as a stock 396 Chevelle was. The next gen truck should feel very good with over 400 foot pounds.
I personally would love a truck like this but I also get the business side enough that I know just saying build it and I will buy on on the web is not going to answer the needed questions needed.
My take on this is for what you are paying for this these should be no major issues with this.
Im breatheless when it comes to engineering GMC manufacturing companies such revoling industry an I’m please say I wish I own one. Beauty such a beauty…
There are other well known 3rd parties doing great aftermarket builds. GM has dealers that will swap engines or engine and transmission packages.
Each guarentee their product and labor.
The new GM is…. Oh yeah, oops.
The New gm is now feminine.
So if you want a powerful truck you will have to buy an electric truck.
Just carry a gas generator in the back so you can get home………………………
Unfortunately people overspend by buying these SVE packages. Buy a vehicle at full price then add $25+ and you got yourself a truck that costs too much….it’s the same with the camaro exorcist…..buy a $45k car and a $60+ package…..more than a demon that’s still faster in the straight line……nothing is like when they built my 00 camaro ss….was built by SVE formally known as SLP….GM shipped them a Z28 in jersey and they tuned, added a hood, spoiler, exhaust, intake, special wheels, to make the SS package. The later years they just gave GM the rights to add everything on right in the assembly line so they came “from gm” as an SS…..325HP for $28k……”best bang for the buck”-car and driver….I put an LS6 stroker in it and a 12 bolt….I love it, only parts I ever had to replace was a water pump and a hub….still blows ice cold air never charged…..oh and best of all, no car payment!!!!!!
I’ll stick with my 454SS…I purchased her new at Dale Earhart Chevy. She has been upgraded over the years (engine, transmission as well as some suspension). and has become shocking faster than most most would believe. I love making real old school horsepower in an age where most people buy it…
Fake news.barley 500 wheel
Gonz even if it is “only” 500HP it’s faster then any GMC CANYON ever made! I swear if this thing where a Ford Ranger Raptor people would droll all over it like a fat Gluton at a hot dog eating contest! Ford=Fix. Or. Repair. Daily.
Hear me out, single cab, SHORT bed w a HYPED UP-even a plain, v8!
