The vehicle is essentially a single chassis truck with a closed cargo area at the back (with swinging doors at the rear). The truck is of an original design, with a truck cab that assumes a more 1920s-1940s truck design. The truck is presumably based on the GMC CCKW.
Because of its size, the Box Truck has heavy steering and a wide turning radius, as well as a low top speed and a below average acceleration. However, its large construction allows it to carry large quantities of passengers, as well as receive a large amount of damage. Due to its size, the Box Truck cannot be lifted into a crusher, similar to other large vehicles in the game.
