The Hot Dog Van is an extended Van-based vehicle with the cargo hold sporting a giant hot dog on its roof. The vehicle is analogous to the Ice-Cream Van, which is based on the same vehicle and feature similar proportions; unlike the Ice Cream Van, however, the vehicle lacks any jingle.
The vehicle's performance is predictably poor, with a below average top speed and steering. The van does, however, possess good acceleration and average brakes. It weight may also be used to its advantage to push aside smaller vehicles on the road. As the van is too large, it cannot be crushed for any reward.
