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

Design

3D Universe

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 1971 or 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

In GTA V the Picador is manufactured by Cheval, a parody of Holden and Chevrolet. In the game the Picador resembles a mid-1970's era Holden HJ Kingswood Utility which was not sold in the United States, however Holden, like Chevrolet, is a General Motors subsidiary.

Performance

3D Universe

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.
