The Tow Truck debuted in GTA 2 as a towing vehicle based on the chassis of a large truck, and a cab design similar to certain large trucks in the game (including the [[Van]], [[Ice Cream Van]], [[Hot Dog Van]] and the [[G4 Bank Van]]); the vehicle is also available with yellow body color only. The vehicle also lacks any [[towing]] ability, unlike the [[Truck Cab]] and [[Truck Cab SX]]. It is only in Multiplayer, so most people who have GTA 2 have never driven it.

In GTA San Andreas, the Tow Truck gains the ability to [[Towing|tow other vehicles]]. This can be very useful for transporting locked cars, or special vehicles in the game. It can also tow other types of vehicles, including helicopters and airplanes. The Tow Truck, somewhat, resembles a [[wp:Ford F-Series#Seventh generation (1980–1986)|seventh generation F-Series Ford Wrecker]]. A fun thing to do with this ability is to spawn as many Tow Trucks the player desires and connect all those trucks, as if it were a train.

In GTA San Andreas, the tow truck resembles a 3rd generation [[wp:Chevrolet C/K|Chevy C/K]]. It is useful for stealing locked cars or cars that the player desires and putting them in property garages that CJ owns and keeping them and thus modifying them for performance when desired or for show, or for when CJ gathers GSF members and engage in a turf war.

The [[Vapid]] Towtruck in GTA IV's The Lost and Damned appears to be the same make as the [[Slamvan]], which resembles a Chevrolet C3100 tow truck, but looks like a [[wikipedia:Ford_F-Series|1940-1950 Ford F-100]]. However, the headlights and grille look like they are from a [[wp:Ford E-Series|1975-'79 Ford Econoline]] van, and the windshield and door tops awkwardly appear to be from a [[wp:Ford F Series|1980's Ford F-Series]]. Constantly featuring "Native Engines" company logos on its doors, it is rusty and in disrepair, and has a distorted horn, much like the "beater" variants of the [[Emperor (car)|Emperor]], [[Sabre]], and [[Vigero]]. As in GTA 2, the Towtruck is incapable of towing anything.

===GTA V===
The Towtruck looks the same as in [[The Lost and Damned]]. It is in red color and if you look closely, it has a hook scratching the road which means that it will possibly be able to lift vehicles.There is also a bigger tow truck possibly for towing large vehicles like trucks or vans.[[File:Towtruck-GTAV-trailer.png|thumb|A Towtruck in GTA V.]]
+
There are two different Tow Trucks featuring in GTA V. The regular Tow Truck looks the same as it did in [[The Lost and Damned]]. It always spawns in its [[Beaters|beater]] form, with rusty paintjob and slightly dilapidated bodywork. This Tow Truck is capable of being customized in [[Los Santos Customs]] like any other vehicle, as well as capable of being stored in any garage owned by the player. It is capable of lifting and towing any vehicle it hooks to, including transport trucks and attached trailers, although you will require all available engine upgrades and a flat surface to make any progress with large vehicles. It is also capable of creating a chain and staying attached to other vehicles even if they player is not in it, meaning you can create large chains of tow trucks strung together without them de-spawning. These trucks can be found spawning in [[Paleto Bay]] coming in off the northern section of the [[Great Ocean Highway|highway]], or in tow.
  +
  +
The second variant is the [[Large Tow Truck]], which is larger than the regular Tow Truck and has a more modern appearance. The Large Tow Truck is significantly less common than the regular Tow Truck.

== Performance ==
Despite being a tow truck, the Tow Truck in GTA San Andreas is very fast, but has a tad understeer, and stiff suspensions that render it unstable when negotiating uneven terrain. It is also a durable vehicle, and can even survive a collision with [[Rhino]] (which normally blows up weaker vehicles on impact). This can be espacially helpfull when the [[Los Santos Riots]] break out, as it can take quite a number of bullets and survive close up explosions.

Despite being a tow truck, the Tow Truck in GTA San Andreas is very fast, but has a tad understeer. It is perfect for off-road, because of its soft suspensions, great grip, and powerful V8 engine. It is also a durable vehicle, and can even survive a collision with [[Rhino]] (which normally blows up weaker vehicles on impact). This can be especially helpful when the [[Los Santos Riots]] break out, as it can take quite a number of bullets and survive close up explosions. It handles about the same as the [[Sadler]], only faster, with a stronger engine, and the ability to tow. It ties with other pickup trucks like the [[Yosemite]], in overall performance.

The HD Universe rendition of the Towtruck is considerably inferior in performance, possessing average acceleration (owed largely to its light weight) and top speed, but possesses poor steering which requires the aid of brakes to corner sharply. Its rear wheel drive configuration and slightly overpowered engine also results in the Towtruck suffering from minor sliding after tight turns.

The Vapid Tow Truck or Towtruck is, as implied, a name for a series of hook-and-chain tow trucks featured in Grand Theft Auto 2, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, The Lost and Damned downloadable episodic pack for Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto V. The name of the tow truck in GTA San Andreas and The Lost and Damned are rendered in a single word, "Towtruck." Each variant of the towtruck sports amber flashing lights that can only be operated in Grand Theft Auto V by tapping the horn button.

DesignEdit

GTA 2Edit

The Tow Truck debuted in GTA 2 as a towing vehicle based on the chassis of a Chevrolet COE, and a cab design similar to certain large trucks in the game (including the Van, Ice Cream Van, Hot Dog Van and the G4 Bank Van); the vehicle is also available with yellow body color only. The vehicle also lacks any towing ability, unlike the Truck Cab and Truck Cab SX. It is only in Multiplayer, so most people who have GTA 2 have never driven it.

GTA San AndreasEdit

In GTA San Andreas, the tow truck resembles a 3rd generation Chevy C/K. It is useful for stealing locked cars or cars that the player desires and putting them in property garages that CJ owns and keeping them and thus modifying them for performance when desired or for show, or for when CJ gathers GSF members and engage in a turf war.

The Lost and DamnedEdit

The Vapid Towtruck in GTA IV's The Lost and Damned appears to be the same make as the Slamvan, which resembles a Chevrolet C3100 tow truck, but looks like a 1940-1950 Ford F-100. However, the headlights and grille look like they are from a 1975-'79 Ford Econoline van, and the windshield and door tops awkwardly appear to be from a 1980's Ford F-Series. Constantly featuring "Native Engines" company logos on its doors, it is rusty and in disrepair, and has a distorted horn, much like the "beater" variants of the Emperor, Sabre, and Vigero. As in GTA 2, the Towtruck is incapable of towing anything.

GTA VEdit

There are two different Tow Trucks featuring in GTA V. The regular Tow Truck looks the same as it did in The Lost and Damned. It always spawns in its beater form, with rusty paintjob and slightly dilapidated bodywork. This Tow Truck is capable of being customized in Los Santos Customs like any other vehicle, as well as capable of being stored in any garage owned by the player. It is capable of lifting and towing any vehicle it hooks to, including transport trucks and attached trailers, although you will require all available engine upgrades and a flat surface to make any progress with large vehicles. It is also capable of creating a chain and staying attached to other vehicles even if they player is not in it, meaning you can create large chains of tow trucks strung together without them de-spawning. These trucks can be found spawning in Paleto Bay coming in off the northern section of the highway, or in tow.

The second variant is the Large Tow Truck, which is larger than the regular Tow Truck and has a more modern appearance. The Large Tow Truck is significantly less common than the regular Tow Truck.

Performance Edit

Despite being a tow truck, the Tow Truck in GTA San Andreas is very fast, but has a tad understeer. It is perfect for off-road, because of its soft suspensions, great grip, and powerful V8 engine. It is also a durable vehicle, and can even survive a collision with Rhino (which normally blows up weaker vehicles on impact). This can be especially helpful when the Los Santos Riots break out, as it can take quite a number of bullets and survive close up explosions. It handles about the same as the Sadler, only faster, with a stronger engine, and the ability to tow. It ties with other pickup trucks like the Yosemite, in overall performance.

The HD Universe rendition of the Towtruck is considerably inferior in performance, possessing average acceleration (owed largely to its light weight) and top speed, but possesses poor steering which requires the aid of brakes to corner sharply. Its rear wheel drive configuration and slightly overpowered engine also results in the Towtruck suffering from minor sliding after tight turns.
