I'm trying to remember a cartoon that aired in the mid or late 90s (I think 1996-1997), the good guys drove high tech armored vehicles (It was not MASK) and had specialized suits. One of the vehicles eventually gets an A.I. installed and starts talking with it's driver. I can't remember any of the other good guys.
There were 3 main bad guys that were some kind of cyborg or android (2 male and 1 female, no it is not Centurions), who were trying to grow their forces by assimilating normal humans, but would be defeated by the good guys. I remember a scene with some kind of robotic tentacle around normal peoples neck, head, or chest who would be in the beginning stages of the transformation process. Also the leaders of each group (Good/Bad Guys) were brothers opposed to each other, which the villain used against the hero.
The series ended with one of the heroes being captured and being turned into a cybernetic creature who sacrifices himself after the change to save the rest of his friends. Also all of the villains underwent some kind of cocoon hibernation which upgraded them and made them stronger.
Does anyone have any idea what I am talking about.
