hold can be exposed when the door is removed - the truck will contain various items of cargo in Vice City, San Andreas, and Vice City Stories.

When introduced in Grand Theft Auto III, the Mule served as a mid-size straight "luton" truck a step below the Yankee, thus being smaller in size (in actuality being narrower) and lighter. As a result, the Mule fares better in speed and acceleration but still possess average-to-poor cornering. In addition, the truck's high center of gravity may also result in easier rollovers and an inability to return upright in many occasions. The small wheels on the Mule also relate to this problem. The GTA III era Mule most closely resembles a 1989 or 1990 Ford E-350 cube van.

In GTA IV, it resembles a mid 1990's Mitsubishi Fuso FM series and the fifth generation Isuzu Elf N-Series. It doesn't tip over as easily as previous games' renditions of the Mule, but is still slow, at 97 mph. The GTA IV Mule is manufactured by Maibatsu, and has a 3 litre diesel engine, according to the badging. ABS braking is standard. The Mule comes with various company names painted on the sides, as well as a version with no markings.

In GTA IV, like the Benson, the Mule does not power with air-brake but instead, it powers with disc/disk-brake and/or drum brake.

  • Due to its height, the Mule in GTA IV is unsellable at Stevie's garage, as it will not fit inside.
  • The Mule plays the following radio stations by default when entered:
  • The name Mule is a reference to "drug mule'", the term for someone that smuggles drugs for someone else.
  • The HD Universe rendition of the Mule looks like a civilian variant of the Dune.
  • In Grand Theft Auto V, the Mule's jacking animation cannot be interrupted by any input. So, when you hit someone elses car and he tries to pull you out to attack you, he instead enters your Mule and drives off.
