The Utility Van and Vapid/Brute Utility Tuck are utility pickup trucks in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto V.


GTA San Andreas

The Utility Van in GTA San Andreas resembles a GMC GMT400 work truck from the 1990s. The engine is definitely a diesel because of the slower shifting and deep sound, and it could very well be a V8 that is obviously underpowered to pull a heavy truck like that. It drives somewhat like a semi truck. The Utility Van is one of three vehicles in the game bearing a Sanitary Andreas logo, the other two being the Sweeper and Trashmaster.

The Utility Van can tow a Utility Trailer, but the Utility Trailer is not found anywhere in San Andreas. It can only be obtained through the use of modifications or trainers.


In GTA V, the utility van appears in 4 different models. Despite having totally different shapes, sizes and additions, they all come under the same name and type of vehicle.

  • Version 1 - Contender-based SUT Truck
  • Version 2 - Brute Stockade 8000 Based Flat Back
  • Version 3 - Brute Stockade 8000 'Cherry Picker' Style Back
    • Version 3a - Removed rear fascia from Version 3
  • Version 4 - Brute Stockade 8000 Short Container Back
  • Version 5 - Brute Stockade 8000 Large Container Back


The Utility Van does not have very good driving attributes, as it has a rather slow acceleration and top speed. This is probably because it is a very heavy vehicle. The braking is probably one of the Utility Van's best attributes, as it is above average.

GTA Online

  • Rarely spawns in industrial areas.



  • The default radio stations for the Utility Van are:

GTA San Andreas

  • Strangely, it shares the same front half as the Towtruck and Benson.
  • Despite the name Utility Van, it is actually a modified pickup and not a van.


GTA V Utility Truck Glitch

Result of the deformation glitch, notice the grill hasn't deformed like the rest.

  • There are 5 different trucks in GTA V under the name of utility truck. This means these are the most vehicles to all come under the same name.
  • The cherrypicker-like attachment on version 3 can not be used.
  • The Stockade Variants front fascias are glitched, when crashed numerous times, the player will notice how the grill will be floating in mid air, not deforming with the rest of the front fascia.
