The [[Vapid]] '''Tow Truck''', or '''Towtruck''', is, as implied, a name for a series of hook-and-chain [[wp:tow truck|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, however these cannot be operated by the player.

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 The Lost and Damned shares its chassis with 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]]. Like most vehicles in the game, the Towtruck does not feature reversing lights. The vehicle can only be found in a [[Beaters|beater]] condition, with rusty bodywork and faded "Native Engines" logos on its doors. Like the "beater" variants of the [[Emperor (car)|Emperor]], [[Sabre]], and [[Vigero]], the Towtruck features a distorted horn. Like GTA2, the Towtruck cannot be used to tow vehicles.
The [[Vapid]] Towtruck in GTA IV's The Lost and Damned appears to be the same make as the [[Slamvan]], which resembles a [[wp:Ford F-Series#Second generation (1953–1956)|second generation Ford F-Series tow truck]]. However, the headlights and grille look like they are from a [[wp:Ford E-Series#1975-1991|1975-'79 Ford Econoline]] van, and the windshield and door tops awkwardly appear to be from a [[wp:Ford_F_Series#Seventh_generation_.281980.E2.80.931986.29|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===
There are two different Tow Trucks featuring in GTA V. The regular Towtruck looks the same as in [[The Lost and Damned]]. In Trailer 2 it was seen in dark red color and if seen closely, it has a hook scraping the road which means may possibly be able to have the ability to lift/tow vehicles. There is also a [[Large Tow Truck]], possibly for towing large vehicles like trucks, buses or vans.
+
There are two different Tow Trucks featuring in GTA V. The regular Towtruck 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 these 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 the player is not in it, meaning they 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. For the first time in the series, the amber lights on the Towtruck's roof can be activated by tapping the horn button.

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

== Performance ==
 
== Performance ==
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 espacially helpfull 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.

==Trivia==
 
* The default radio stations for the Tow Truck are:
 
**'''''GTA San Andreas''''': [[K-DST]].
 
**'''''The Lost and Damned''''': [[Liberty Rock Radio 97.8]].
 
**'''''Grand Theft Auto V''''': [[Rebel Radio]].
 
* Oddly, in GTA San Andreas, the Tow Truck shares the same horn with the [[Super GT]].
 
* In GTA San Andreas, if large or heavy vehicles are towed by the Tow Truck, some glitches may occur. For example, towing a [[Dozer]] and turning the Tow Truck sharply in any direction will throw the two vehicles in opposite directions with great force. Also, if you tow a [[Packer]] with some vehicles on its back, the vehicles may sometimes be thrown into the air with great force, and the Packer may catch on [[Fire|fire]] and explode.
 
* In The Lost and Damned, the tow truck has the same horn as the beater [[Vigero]].
 
* The TLAD version of the tow truck doesn't have reversing lights. This applies for the [[Intruder]], [[Super Diamond]], [[Contender]] and the [[Super Drop Diamond]].
 
* In [[Grand Theft Auto V]] you may purchase the towtruck company and begin towtruck mini-missions once completing Tonya's stranger missions.
 
* The Tow Truck in GTA V and TLAD shares its truck bed with the [[Bobcat]] but with a different bumper and tail lights and modified bed sides. This is a reference to the Chevrolet stepside trucks (which the Bobcat in GTA IV is based on) which kept th same basic bed design well into the 80s.

The Tow Truck (also spelt 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 and Grand Theft Auto V. It is manufactured by Vapid in the HD Universe.

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 The Lost and Damned shares its chassis with 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. Like most vehicles in the game, the Towtruck does not feature reversing lights. The vehicle can only be found in a beater condition, with rusty bodywork and faded "Native Engines" logos on its doors. Like the "beater" variants of the Emperor, Sabre, and Vigero, the Towtruck features a distorted horn. Like GTA2, the Towtruck cannot be used to tow vehicles.

GTA VEdit

There are two different Tow Trucks featuring in GTA V. The regular Towtruck 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 these 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 the player is not in it, meaning they 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. For the first time in the series, the amber lights on the Towtruck's roof can be activated by tapping the horn button.

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

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 a Rhino, which normally destroys weaker vehicles. This can be especially useful during the Los Santos Riots, as it can take a large number of bullets and survive close up explosions. It has similar handling to the Sadler, but has a stronger engine and higher top speed. Its overall performance is tied that of the Yosemite.

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 vehicle is only available in the game's multiplayer modes, as it cannot be found in any districts in Anywhere City or any single-player missions.

GTA San AndreasEdit

GTA The Lost and DamnedEdit

GTA VEdit

  • Spawns outside Beeker's Garage in Paleto Bay. In the enhanced version, it can sometimes be found with a unique black and green colour scheme.
