The Brute Boxville is a multi-stop truck or walk-in delivery van featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto V.

Description

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.

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 GTA games. After collecting all thirty cars for Stevie he agrees to purchase cars from Niko Bellic, with the Boxville fetching $1,800.

In Grand Theft Auto V, the Boxville comes back 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 is considered "Industrial" instead of a "Van"

Burglary Boxville

Boxville-GTASA-burglary-front

The "Black" Boxville used for burglaries in GTA San Andreas.

GTA San Andreas features a specialized variant of the Boxville, referred officially as a Boxville, named internally in game files as a "boxburg" (a possible short form of "Boxville Burglary"), and unofficially dubbed the "Boxville Black" or "Black Boxville".

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). The van is integral to the game's burglary sub-missions that take place at night, and is prominently used in one mission where Carl Johnson has to steal Colonel Fuhrberger's weapons for Ryder before sunrise.
