The Bravado Bison is a large, double-cab pickup truck that makes its debut appearance in Grand Theft Auto V.

Design

The truck's front end appears to have design influences taken from the styling of the fourth generation Dodge Ram, while the front appears to be influenced by the second generation Toyota Tundra, and twelfth generation Ford F-150 for the rear. The cab design is slightly reminiscent of that of the 1999 Chevrolet Silverado.

The truck's design appears to be somewhat sports-influenced. The front features a bold layout, dominated by a large, protruding chrome-trimmed grille, which features three inset horizontal chrome strips. The manufacturer emblem is placed centrally on the area that connects the two lowest strips. Adjacent to the grille are the headlamp units which are less tall and split horizontally into two sections, with the horizontal split occurring at the same height where the manufacturer meblem is mounted. Below the grille is a protruding front bumper. The front bumper features two horizontal ducts, with the lower one more narrow than the duct above. The edges form a hexagon shape when combined with the edges of the grille. The base of the front bumper is given a more sporty appearance by a lip that spans the bottom edge. License plates are mounted centrally in front of the two ducts. Circular fog lamps appear beside the ducts and beneath the headlamp units. Above the grille, bounded by lines which run from the corners of the headlamp and grille to the base of the A-pillar and windscreen respectively, there is a large elevated area of the hood.

At the sides, similar subtle sports features can be seen; the wheelbase has flared skirting. The main body is however quite plain, lacking any extra formations. The main body line runs from the top-outer corner of the headlamps to a rearmost point of the sides above the taillight units. The greenhouse is quite curved, illustrating a more modern appearance. The mirrors are mounted at the base of the A-pillars. The truck has medium profile tires that enwrap six-spoke wheels. Behind the rear arches more skirting can be seen.

At the rear, a chrome bumper is placed above the skirting ant the base of the rear face. Adjacent and above the rear bumper, at the corner of the body are the taillight units. The units are chrome-trimmed and split into two sections horizontally, the top section being rectangular and the bottom, an irregular trapezium. The taillight units appear completely red. Ovular exhaust tips can be seen underneath the rear of the truck. Under the rear bumber there is a tow hook. Bison is one of the pick-up trucks in the game that are capable of towing a trailer.

Performance

The Bison is capable of reaching a good top speed, while acceleration is not exceptional, much like the Dodge Ram, it handles well while off-roading, however, it lacks stability, most notable when doing the ATV racing.

Trivia

  • This is the fourth four-door pick up truck in the series. The first being the Patriot, the Cartel Cruiser, the Albany Cavalcade FXT, and the fifth being the Sadler.
  • The truck's name also parodies the Dodge Ram, as a bison and a ram are both terms for male animals.
    • It is also a reference to the Buffalo, as both vehicles are named after the same type of cattle.
  • Because passengers can ride in the bed, as with the Bobcat, the Bison is classified as a van instead of a truck.
