The Vapid Steed is a box truck featured in Grand Theft Auto IV.

Design

The Steed closely resembles a 1992-1996 Ford Econoline delivery truck, and as such may be seen as a

"successor" to the GTA III Era Mule, which was also depicted as a Ford E-Series box truck (the Mule reappears in the GTA IV Era alongside the Steed, however this new take on the Mule is based on the Isuzu Elf).

The Steed comes with various company names on the sides, such as, 24/7 Supermarkets, Krapea, Liberty Tree, Logger Beer, Raine, and Üder Milkén. As is with the majority of delivery vehicles, the Steed may also been seen with graffiti on its cargo hold. It also can have a blank variant with no company names or grafitti.

The Steed has a minor design flaw. The front license plate is notably smaller than the rest of Liberty City's license plates.

Performance

The Steed's engine is possibly a diesel V8 coupled to a 5 speed gearbox. Like most large vehicles, the Steed has poor acceleration and handling, but it has a very good top speed for a vehicle of its size at 103 mph. The braking, however, is very good with ABS as a standard equipment. Despite its height, the Steed doesn't tip over easily.

Trivia

  • The default radio station in the Steed is Liberty City Hardcore.
  • The police radio calls the Steed an industrial van (because it's based on one) instead of a truck. Because it's a van, it doesn't have beeping reverse tone on trucks.
  • Upon delivery of all thirty cars for Stevie, when he agrees to purchase cars from Niko Bellic, the Steed may be sold for $4,000.
  • Steed is also known as a horse to ride on.
