The [[Vapid]] '''Stanier''' (also known as '''Fleet Sedan '''prior to being officially named) is a four-door, full-size sedan found in [[Grand Theft Auto V]]. In [[Grand Theft Auto IV]] and its [[Episodes From Liberty City|episodes]], the vehicle appears only as a [[police car|Police Cruiser]] and [[taxi|Taxi]]. There are two different models of Stanier in the [[HD Universe]].
   
 
==Overview==
 
==Overview==
The Stanier is based primarily on the [[wp:Ford_Crown_Victoria|Ford Crown Victoria]]. The Crown Victoria is a popular vehicle for police and taxi applications for its performance and durability due to its body-on-frame construction, rear wheel drive layout, and V8 powertrain. While [[GTA IV]] only had the 1st generation Stanier, two versions, can be seen in [[GTA V]].
+
The Stanier is based primarily on the second generation [[wp:Mercury Grand Marquis|Mercury Grand Marquis]] (1st generation) and the [[wp:Ford Crown Victoria|Ford Crown Victoria]] (second generation). The rear taillights are similar to the ones found on the [[wp:Toyota Camry (XV20)|Toyota Camry XV20]].
  +
[[GTA IV]] features the 1st generation Stanier as the Police Cruiser and Taxi but there is no civilian version.  [[GTA V]] features the 1st generation Stanier as a civilian model, and the 2nd generation as the [[Police Cruiser]], [[Taxi]], [[Sheriff's Cruiser]] and [[Unmarked Cruiser]].

The updated Stanier features a commercial model, which is the basis of the [[Police Cruiser]], [[Taxi]], [[Sheriff's Cruiser]] and [[Unmarked Cruiser]]. This variant is based on the 1998-2011 model of the Crown Victoria but the front end of the vehicle shares a resemblance of the seventh-gen Chevy Impala. Civilian versions of the newer Stanier are not in GTA V. Compared to the first generation, this unit is more square in shape then the more bulbous 1st generation Stanier. All of these models have a small "Police Cruiser" badge on the right side of the rear, below the taillight. This corresponds to Ford's real-world "Police Interceptor" package.

The updated Stanier features a fleet model, which is the basis of the [[Police Cruiser]], [[Taxi]], [[Sheriff's Cruiser]] and [[Unmarked Cruiser]], however there are no civilian units. This variant is based on the 1998-2011 model of the Crown Victoria but the front end of the vehicle shares a resemblance of the seventh-gen [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:94-96_Chevrolet_Impala_SS.jpg Chevy Impala]. Compared to the first generation, this unit is more square in shape then the more bulbous 1st generation Stanier, yet bigger than it. All of these models have a small "Police Cruiser" badge on the right side of the rear, below the taillight. This corresponds to Ford's real-world "Police Interceptor" package.
  +
  +
There are minor differences which differentiate the three variants of the second generation Stanier from each other. the [[Taxi]] has a longer, chrome grille, a weaker engine, and wheels from the taxi from GTA IV, but with a smaller, different centercap. The overall appearance gives the impression that it was inspired by the pre - 2003 commercial version of the Crown Victoria. In contrast, the police variation of the Stanier borrows many details from the 2003 - 2011 Ford CVPI, including a polymer grille, wheels resembling that of the 2006 model year using lower profile tires, and many other polymer elements and details. The Sheriff Cruiser and LSPD Cruiser also share differing elements; The LSPD version utilizes Xenon headlights and its emergency taillights uses noticeably faster wig - wag patterns, while the Sheriff Cruiser simply does not.

The Stanier retains its qualities from GTA IV. It has the acceleration qualities which match and seems to even exceed that of its successor, the second generation Stanier, as the car is the police version from GTA IV - the taxi version of the aforementioned game had matching specs, but did not accelerate as quickly. It has an above average top speed, sourced from the 4.6L V8 it had kept from GTA IV. Strangely, the engine sound has changed. Its handling remains well, and is vastly improved, with GTA V's revised physics and driving mechanics. Due to it's RWD powertrain, the car is also able to powerslide into corners readily. Because of its retained feature of police suspension, the Stainer has one of the best handling characterstics of all the sedans in the game, and is very consistent. Inheritly, the Stanier's performance in crashes remains stellar - being able to take multiple direct hits to the chassis, powertrain, and suspension without failure, likely because Rockstar wanted to emulate the real Crown Victoria's safety record and collision endurance capabilities. For the $10,000 purchase price in GTA Online, the 1st generation sedan is a good choice for those who want a no - nonsense, direct, capable, and yet affordable sedan.

The Vapid Stanier (also known as Fleet Sedan prior to being officially named) is a four-door, full-size sedan found in Grand Theft Auto V. In Grand Theft Auto IV and its episodes, the vehicle appears only as a Police Cruiser and Taxi. There are two different models of Stanier in the HD Universe.

OverviewEdit

The Stanier is based primarily on the second generation Mercury Grand Marquis (1st generation) and the Ford Crown Victoria (second generation). The rear taillights are similar to the ones found on the Toyota Camry XV20. GTA IV features the 1st generation Stanier as the Police Cruiser and Taxi but there is no civilian version.  GTA V features the 1st generation Stanier as a civilian model, and the 2nd generation as the Police CruiserTaxiSheriff's Cruiser and Unmarked Cruiser.

1st Generation (GTA IV) Edit

Taxi-GTA4-Vapid-front

1st generation Vapid Stanier in GTA IV.

Regardless of its application, the Vapid Stanier features a front pushbar, CB radio equipment, and black wheels with chrome centercaps. Law enforcement models additionally have a police computer, roof-mounted lightbars, and a spotlight mounted on the driver's side. The taxi variants have a rear pushbar, fare meter, taxi lights and markers, and a hood-mounted taxi medallion; some taxis may also have roof-mounted advertising. The taxi version of the Stanier is simply called the Taxi, while the police vehicle is called the Police Cruiser, to separate it from the Police Patrol (a modified Merit).

1st Generation (GTA V)Edit

1st generation Stanier models from GTA IV can be seen as civilian units in GTA V, albeit with the odd details of unpainted B pillars from GTA IV.

2nd Generation (GTA V)Edit

PoliceCruiser-GTAV-Front-Stanier

2nd generation Stanier in GTA V.

The updated Stanier features a fleet model, which is the basis of the Police CruiserTaxiSheriff's Cruiser and Unmarked Cruiser, however there are no civilian units. This variant is based on the 1998-2011 model of the Crown Victoria but the front end of the vehicle shares a resemblance of the seventh-gen Chevy Impala. Compared to the first generation, this unit is more square in shape then the more bulbous 1st generation Stanier, yet bigger than it. All of these models have a small "Police Cruiser" badge on the right side of the rear, below the taillight. This corresponds to Ford's real-world "Police Interceptor" package.

There are minor differences which differentiate the three variants of the second generation Stanier from each other. the Taxi has a longer, chrome grille, a weaker engine, and wheels from the taxi from GTA IV, but with a smaller, different centercap. The overall appearance gives the impression that it was inspired by the pre - 2003 commercial version of the Crown Victoria. In contrast, the police variation of the Stanier borrows many details from the 2003 - 2011 Ford CVPI, including a polymer grille, wheels resembling that of the 2006 model year using lower profile tires, and many other polymer elements and details. The Sheriff Cruiser and LSPD Cruiser also share differing elements; The LSPD version utilizes Xenon headlights and its emergency taillights uses noticeably faster wig - wag patterns, while the Sheriff Cruiser simply does not. 

PerformanceEdit

GTA IVEdit

The Stanier is powered by a 4.6L V8, coupled to a 5 speed gearbox in a RWD layout. Acceleration is good, and the top speed is above average and its braking and suspension are very good. It has a low rev limit, which can be felt at higher rpms. Also, the engine feels as if it runs out of steam before the transmission switches gear. It has a higher top speed than its Declasse- branded competitor (Merit).

The car's weakness lies in its poor suspension, as the car experiences incredible amounts of body roll and has a tendency to oversteer off throttle. Stability is average at high speeds, but due to its very soft suspension the car does wallow and float about quite a bit. The car does appear to have some decent tires on it, however, which does help with improving the handling quality, if only just a bit.

Crash deformation is also average, and the suspension does not take very long to start meandering one way or the other. The engine is not fragile, but is certainly not the toughest to destroy in the game, although it fares better than the Police Buffalo.

For the $10,000 purchase price in GTA Online, the 1st generation sedan is a good choice for those who want a no - nonsense, direct, capable, and yet affordable sedan.
