The Large Tow Truck is powered by a V8 diesel engine, which is capable of bringing the truck up to great top speeds, however due to its weight, it is sluggish and unresponsive when accelerated.

The Vapid Large Tow Truck, also spelt Large Towtruck, is, as implied, a tow truck featured in Grand Theft Auto V. It is significantly larger than its smaller counterpart. The vehicle is simply named Tow Truck in game.

DescriptionEdit

The design for the Large Tow Truck seems to be derived from Grand Theft Auto IV's Yankee, with an identical cab and chassis design. The major differences between the Large Tow Truck and the normal Tow Truck are the model of inspiration, the size and the inability of being customized and stored. Unlike the other version, it has a heightened ground clearance, thus towing vehicles is considerably easier than its other variant. The Large Tow Truck has a slightly rusted body.

PerformanceEdit

The Large Tow Truck is powered by a V8 diesel engine, which is capable of bringing the truck up to great top speeds, however due to its weight, it is sluggish and unresponsive when accelerated. Its long wheelbase and chassis results in it having a large turning radius, but due to its weight, it is very stable when cornering and maneuvering at high speeds. Additionally, it can easily ram smaller cars off the road, and its durability is remarkable.
