The Picador is implied to be a pickup variant of the [[Buccaneer]], which shares a similar frontal design, with the exception of a different headlight design, a thinner front bumper, and an additional emblem on the hood. The Picador is based on the [[wp:Chevrolet El Camino#1968-1972|1971 or 1972 Chevrolet El Camino]], which happens to share similar design cues with the [[wp:Chevrolet Monte Carlo#First generation|1970-1972 Chevrolet Monte Carlo]], a car which the Buccaneer shares a likeness to. Picadors may occasionally been depicted with different items on its bed, such as planks or [[Sprunk]] cans.

In GTA V, the Picador is manufactured by [[Cheval]], a parody of Australian automaker [[wp:Holden|Holden]], a sister company of General Motors. In the game, the Picador takes design cues from both the [[wikipedia:Holden_HJ|Holden HJ Utility]] and the [[wp:Chevrolet El Camino|1971-1972 Chevrolet El Camino]]. The rear fascia is almost identical to that of the El Camino, while retaining the large, shallow cab and square mirrors seen on the Holden. The front end is a bit murkier, with references to the older, second generation El Camino in the headlight and grille assembly.

In the [[PlayStation 4]], [[Xbox One]], and [[PC|PC&nbsp;versions]] of the game, there is a monster truck variant of the Picador named the [[Marshall]].

==Performance==
  +
===GTA San Andreas===
  +
The Picador has the highest top speed and acceleration for any pickup in the game, possibly due to the large V8 engine. However, it is also the lightest and lacks the torque of the stronger trucks; its cornering is also a little unstable, owing to its rear wheel drive. As it is a pickup, the Picador can only carry two in the truck cab.

===GTA V===
  +
[[File:Picador,Cheval.jpg|thumb|Top view of the Picador's engine.]]
  +
The Picador is powered by a large displacement V8 and it shares its engine sound with the [[Sabre Turbo]], [[Fugitive]] and [[Gauntlet]]. Its speed and acceleration is good in comparison to most street cars, especially when upgraded, but it is heavily outclassed by other muscle cars. Its handling is at odds with more conventional muscle cars, since its four wheel drive gives it excellent traction and launch speed. This combined with its soft suspension makes the Picador one of the best muscle cars for offroading, though one must be wary of body roll. Crash deformation is poor, and bullet resistance is only average.

"1960's entry in a long, esteemed line of Cheval coupé utility vehicles. Combining all the style of a two-door hardtop with the practicality of an integrated cargo tray, this most certainly isn't a jack of all trades and a master of none."
Southernsanandreassuperautos.com description.

The Picador is a coupé utility featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online. It is manufactured by Cheval in GTA V.

DesignEdit

3D UniverseEdit

The Picador is implied to be a pickup variant of the Buccaneer, which shares a similar frontal design, with the exception of a different taillight design, a thinner front bumper, and an additional emblem on the hood. The Picador is based on the 1972 Chevrolet El Camino, which happens to share similar design cues with the 1970-1972 Chevrolet Monte Carlo, a car which the Buccaneer shares a likeness to. Picadors may occasionally been depicted with different items on its bed, such as planks or Sprunk cans.

HD UniverseEdit

In GTA V, the Picador is manufactured by Cheval, a parody of Australian automaker Holden, a sister company of General Motors. In the game, the Picador takes design cues from both the Holden HJ Utility and the 1971-1972 Chevrolet El Camino. The rear fascia is almost identical to that of the El Camino, while retaining the large, shallow cab and square mirrors seen on the Holden. The front end is a bit murkier, with references to the older, second generation El Camino in the headlight and grille assembly.

In the PlayStation 4Xbox One, and PC versions of the game, there is a monster truck variant of the Picador named the Marshall
