  1. I wish folks would do their homework before speaking in defense of their beloved Lightning. Btw, I'm not knocking the Lightning. It's definitely the fastest production truck, but not the quickest. That honor still belongs to the Syclone. As a matter of fact, the Syclone was the quickest production car made in the US back in 91. Even quicker than the ZR1. You can thank the AWD for that.

    I can reference many magazines that list the Syclone as sub 14 seconds in the 1/4 mile, bone stock.

    As far as the Syclone having a little V6. Remember it's turbocharged. Fast turbo V-6's have proven themselves for years. Remember the Grand National, GNX and Turbo T/A of the late 80's? I know guys routinely running sub 10 seconds in these cars, modified of course.

    The Lightning is a nice truck though.
     
  2. Me. I'd take a GMC Syclone over this POS anyday.

  4. cyclone was smaller lighter, a little faster in acceleration.

    the f150 can out tow it out top speed it, and just looks freaking bad ass and mean
     
  5. yeah ...
    this is like a '60's muscle car with a cargo bed...
    pure brute power...
    and its simply awesome<!-- Signature -->
     
  6. ive seen cyclones, and i dont like them. but the SVT is the badest ass production, off the production line truck on this planet. if the sidewinder was a production id go for that. 0-60 in 3.9? oh yeah, ferrari beater.<!-- Signature -->
     
  7. you could damn near get this truck at top speed in the quarter mile if you do some calculating
     
  8. most likly...

  9. I think this is the baddest truck out there. I mean how many pick-ups do you see in this world that would beat most of the cars on the street. Game,Set,& Match!

    Why would you prefere a Syclone over a Lightning. If you think about it, they are closely related in price, and the lightning looks much better. Also, the lightning has much more engine power than you can ever put in a Syclone. I mean a Supercharged V8 to a V6, Thats stock too.
     
  11. I dont really like trucks but this thing is sweet. Beaten cars in a truck must be a good feeling.
     
  12. The reason i would take a Syclone over a lightning is because siply, a syclone would kick the lighnings ass in the 1/4 mile and the 0 - 60 AWD is a beautiful thing, somone made the comment about a concept lightning beating a ferrari, well a stock syclone has been known to beat a ferrari 348ts in 0-60 and 1/4, "blow the fat fenders off of a ZR-1" all of these are proven by the lovely car and driver magazine
     
  13. sygay27, you are stupid.syclones are pieces of crap! high 14's-15's in the 1/4 mile! thats nothing compared to the best,fastest, quickest production truck EVER!!!
     
  14. Who doesn't love this truck ???

    Hey,

    Do you dare say you despise this vehicle or have many complaints ?

    I've driven in only 1 SVT lightning and I loved it!
    I was a huge truck kid but couldn't find any low enough/fast enough/and great looking...
    now I've found one!
    I like its handling, its confortable, fast, and from what i know reliable.

    If u find any problems with them let me know because right now I
    give them a Big 2 thumbs up!

    The syclone was an ugly peice of shit! If it was such a great truck, why did it go out of production? Because they had a lot of problems with the AWD! And why hasn't chevy since developed a truck that can compete with the lightning or anything else? Doesn't anybody realize that AWD on this lightning would blow anything away! But ford made this truck to be a TRUCK. V-8 engined and RWD! That is what makes it amazing!
     
  16. Who dosen't like this truck? I dont. American Cars suck.
     
  17. a syclone wouldn't come close to touchiing an 01-02 lightning.

    These trucks can/will run 13.1-13.2 STOCK. With slick they break the 12's easily.
     
  18. this truck is the best...i am thinking about getting one..i most likely will end up with one..and from all the people i have talked to that have had one or has one are never upset with it performance..and to top it all off the truck looks great...and it has alot of power
     
  19. the cyclone would never to be able to beat the lightning...what were you thinkin?
     
  20. last time i checked the syclone wasn't runnin a 13.2 or 13.1
     
  21. this truck sucks,ugly and slow,a cyclone would dust this,look up the numbers,they dont lie,cyclone was a 12 second with 0-60 about 4.8 seconds,that would dust this POS ford
     
  22. This is the sickest looking truck every, unlike your Syclone which looks like a piece of shit. The Lightning looks nicer, has more power, is bigger, and can haul more. Wait....did I mention, the Syclone looks like a piece of shit compared to an F-150 Lightning. Oh yeah, and by the way the 0- 60s are the same. Learn to read, and stop doing crack.
     
  23. american cars... this is a truck not a car...
    and even at that american cars don't suck either!
    lick my left nut domestic hater!
     
  24. There is nothing amazing about front engined V-8 Rear wheel drive. AWD is amazing however since it performs well on ice, and you don't have to mess with switching 4x4 in and out. The Typhoon shown on this site shows:
    mph 0 - 60 mph 5.6 seconds
    0 - Πmile 14.3 seconds
    The Typhoon looks like the blazer version of the Cyclone and the Cyclone is probably a little bit faster since it weighs less but has the same power. The only reason I would choose the Cyclone over the Lightning is for the AWD since I live in Alaska with Winter time 8 months out of the year. I would actually rather have the Typhoon so I could seat more and put a boom box in there.
     
  25. Dude this truck is cool!0-60 5.5 sec that kicks asphault so wut if the ram 500 has a v-10 it has 500hp anf the lighting is only off by .5sec that not much and the ram has 120 hp morehp.besides i like the v-8 deep sound not a weird pur!
