The Picador accelerates reasonably quickly and has a good top speed. However, being a muscle car, the Picador doesn't have great handling. Interestingly, it is the only muscle car with 4WD (four wheel drive).

The Cheval Picador is a coupé utility featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto V.

Design Edit

3D Universe Edit

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 Universe Edit

In GTA V the Picador is manufactured by Cheval, a parody of Holden and Chevrolet. In the game the Picador still resembles a Holden HJ Kingswood Utility but with a grille from a second generation El Camino. Holden never officially sold cars and trucks in the United States, however Holden, like Chevrolet, is a General Motors company. The grille and headlight area seems to resemble the same area on the Vigero, but with a later mid-70s design. This area also loosely resemble 1978-1989 FSO Polonez.

Performance Edit

3D Universe Edit

The Picador has the highest top speed and acceleration for any pickup in the game possibly due to a 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.

HD Universe Edit

The Picador accelerates reasonably quickly and has a good top speed. However, being a muscle car, the Picador doesn't have great handling. Interestingly, it is the only muscle car with 4WD (four wheel drive).

The Picador is powered by a large displacement V8. Possibly the same as Cheval's muscle sedan, the Fugitive, as they share the same engine sound.

Trivia Edit

  • Ryder's car is a brown Picador with a license plate reading "SHERM", a slang term for a PCP-immersed Marijuana and Tobacco mixture (CJ calls Ryder "sherm-head" throughout the game). Even after the mission Pier 69 his car still spawns regularly. The car takes the place of a Sadler as Ryder's car of choice during development of the game.[1]
  • The Spanish name Picador is a horse-mounted member of a bullfighting crew, which confronts the bull with his pike ("pica", hence the name) during the first third of each bull.
  • The Spanish word Picado, without the "R," means "Chopped," or "Minced" in Portuguese.
  • The default radio stations for the Picador are:
  • In GTA V, the Picador's taillights functions from its rear bumper instead of its usual taillights from the cab. It also does not contain reverse lights.
  • In a PS2 open-world game RoadKill, which is one of the GTA Clone, there is a vehicle looking like the Picador, called "Cajones".
  • Oddly, when the headlights are turned on, bright light only comes from 2 headlights, despite there being dual headlights where all the 4 should shine bright light.
