In GTA IV and GTA V, the Pony is manufactured by [[Brute]]. The front resembles a [[wp:GMC Savana|1997-2002 GMC Savana]] and [[Wp:GMC Vandura|GMC Vandura]], and the sides and back resemble a [[wp:Dodge Ram Van|1986-1993 Dodge Ram Van]]; that said, it has taller taillights than the Ram Van, and its side-mirrors look closer to more modern vans like the 1996–present Chevy Express/GMC Savana.

There is some confusion over the differences between the Pony and the [[Rumpo]], due to changes in their designs between GTA III and GTA Vice City. In GTA III, the Rumpo is designed after the Dodge Ram Van, and the Pony is a larger van with a heightened roof. In GTA Vice City, however, the Pony has a new design with a conventional roof, and the original "heightened roof" Pony design is inherited by the Rumpo (GTA San Andreas retained this change). Vans inspired by the Dodge Ram Van would continue to appear in the GTA III era, under the name "[[Burrito]]".

The Brute Pony made its first appearance in Grand Theft Auto III, and went on to feature in all of the following games of the GTA III Era (apart from Grand Theft Auto Advance), Grand Theft Auto IV, and Grand Theft Auto V.

To date, the Pony has appeared in the following games:

Description Edit

Design Edit

GTA III — GTA Vice City StoriesEdit

Between GTA III and GTA Vice City Stories, the Pony is depicted as a generic, medium sized van that has appeared in two different forms.

For GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories, the Pony features a modern appearance with a high roof (compared to the Rumpo's lower roof) and resembles a Talbot Express.

The GTA Vice City, GTA San Andreas and GTA Vice City Stories renditions, however are directed in an older form with a conventionally low roof which makes the van aesthetically similar to Ford vans from the late '80's and 1990's such as the Ford Econoline.

In all its incarnations, the Pony is capable of carrying four passengers (two in the front, two in the back), and can be found driving around the industrial areas of the cities.

Regular Ponys in GTA San Andreas may occasionally appear with stereo systems in their cargo holds. One such Pony is seen during the mission "Life's a Beach", where it is used by a DJ for a beach party (see #Variants for more details).

GTA IV — GTA VEdit

In GTA IV and GTA V, the Pony is manufactured by Brute. The front resembles a 1997-2002 GMC Savana and GMC Vandura, and the sides and back resemble a 1986-1993 Dodge Ram Van; that said, it has taller taillights than the Ram Van, and its side-mirrors look closer to more modern vans like the 1996–present Chevy Express/GMC Savana. Some of them are also fitted with roof racks.

In both games, the Pony is quite a rare vehicle, however in GTA IV it does spawn parked in at least two locations (see #Locations). It comes with various different company names including; Sum Yung Gai Chinese Restaurant, U-Benders Plumbing Services, Pizza This and Mr. Wong's Laundrette. There isn't a Pony without a company name in GTA IV.

Performance Edit

The Pony has a top speed of 122 mph, however its handling suffers from a very stiff suspension setup, making the vehicle quite unstable on bumpy roads.

Company liveries (GTA IV)Edit

Variants Edit

In its earlier form, the Pony has been repeatedly adapted into different vans featuring unique modifications, including:

Ponys with unique modifications also exist. Ponys with unique black body colors can be found during "Loose Ends". During the GTA San Andreas mission "Life's a Beach", there is a also unique teal Pony with a large stereo system and off-road wheels (presumably to allow it to traverse the sandy beach); it is a one-of-a-kind vehicle as Ponys cannot be modified at TransFender.

Naming confusion Edit

There is some confusion over the differences between the Pony and the Rumpo, due to changes in their designs between GTA III and GTA Vice City. In GTA III, the Rumpo is designed after the Dodge Ram Van, and the Pony is a larger van with a heightened roof. In GTA Vice City, however, the Pony has a new design with a conventional roof, and the original "heightened roof" Pony design is inherited by the Rumpo (GTA San Andreas retained this change). Vans inspired by the Dodge Ram Van would continue to appear in the 3D Universe, under the name "Burrito".

  • Can spawn on Amarillo Vista near Lester's house in El Burro Heights.

TriviaEdit

  • A cosmetic glitch in GTA Vice City causes any Pony which enters a Pay 'n' Spray to emerge with its front bumper facing the opposite direction, towards the rear. Simply parking the vehicle in a garage and allowing the garage door to close will restore the bumper's alignment. This problem is also present in GTA Vice City's Rumpo.
