Top 10 Fastest Pickup Trucks Sold in the United States

Most new pickup trucks are built to be tough, rugged, and able to haul cargo when needed. However, in the past years, some manufacturers have bent the rules by dropping high-performance motors into some of the most common truck bodies.

Combine a turbocharger or supercharger, and you will have some of the fastest pickup trucks sold in America. Some of these trucks have zero-to-sixty acceleration times that would make an expensive, high-performance sports car tuck its tail between its legs.

The 1991 GMC Syclone

The 1991 GMC Syclone was only produced for one year. GMC discontinued it to build the 1992-1993 GMC Typhoon sport utility vehicle. With only a limited production of 2,995 of these little rockets made. You were lucky to see one on the road and even more fortunate to ever get to drive one.

The GMC Syclone was equipped with an inter-cooled 4.3 Liter turbocharged V6 with 280 horsepower. The power plant was combined with Corvette 700R four-speed automatic gearbox, sending massive power to the all-wheel-drive (AWD) system.

With a zero-to-sixty time of only 4.3 seconds, the Syclone was famous for being the only pickup to beat any high-dollar Corvette and Ferrari it was lined up against on the starting line.

Competition Between Dealers Always Gets You the Best Price

Before visiting a dealership to buy a new car, it’s essential to know the dealer invoice price and what other people are paying for the vehicle in your local area.  Otherwise, you won’t know a reasonable price to pay for any car you’re looking to buy.

Learn how to have dealers compete with each other online before ever stepping foot inside a dealership to guarantee you pay the best new car price and avoid any modern-day car dealer scams.

I highly recommend using an online referral service such as Ryde Shopper or Motor Trend.  Their quotes will automatically include any discounts or cash-back incentives currently available in the marketplace.
