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.
The major differences between the Large Tow Truck and the normal Tow Truck are the model of inspiration then 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.
The Large tow truck is a heavy truck with a V8 Diesel engine and it's considerably fast for such a big truck and smooth handling, however, it has poor brakes and may take a long distance to stop.
