== Description ==
+
==Design==
Resembling a Chevrolet or GMC Step Van that ranges from the late 1970s to the early 1990s prior to GTA IV, the Boxville's speed and handling is largely the same as any large vehicle, going 111 mph with poor steering due to its weight.
+
===3D Universe===
  +
The Boxville has a rather generic design, and most closely resembles a Chevrolet or GMC [[wp:Step van|Step Van]] that ranges from the late 1970s to the early 1990s.
   
In GTA IV, the Boxville, given a [[Brute]] brand name, has become even heavier, slow, and harder to turn at high speeds. In addition, the body resembles a Ford/Utilimaster step van. It is still the heaviest delivery van in all the [[Grand Theft Auto|GTA]] games. After collecting all thirty cars for [[Stevie]] he agrees to purchase cars from [[Niko Bellic]], with the Boxville fetching $1,800.

The body resembles the GMC Step Van and its twin, the Chevrolet Step Van. It is still the heaviest delivery van in all the [[GTA]] games. The vehicle is now manufactured by [[Brute]] and sounds heavier than before. The LSDS & LSWP Boxvilles features 4 strobe lights that can be activated.

The Boxville's speed and handling is mostly the same as any large vehicle, with a top speed leveling off at around 111 miles per hour. Due to its large size and weight, it suffers from poor steering and handling, and its tires lose grip with the road much easier. Because of its high center of gravity, it is prone to tipping over if driven on rough, uneven terrain. However, its large size can be used as an advantage; It can easily ram smaller cars off the road.

In GTA IV, the vehicle has become even heavier, slower, and harder to turn at high speeds. The Boxville comes back in GTA V with a much stronger engine, which appears to be a V8 turbo-diesel. It also handles like a truck and has a truck horn; therefore it is considered "Industrial" instead of a "Van".

Its difference from a standard Boxville include its unique dark gray body color and a quieter engine (using the same engine audio same as a [[Pony]]).
