For the Stockade-based Utility Truck that shares the same name in GTA V, see Utility Truck.



The Utility Van and Utility Truck are utility pickup trucks in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto V. It is manufactured by Vapid in the HD Universe.

Design

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.

GTA V

In GTA V, the Utility Truck is based closely on a Contender, and has a large rear pickup section, often filled up with wheel barrows, tools and boxes.

Performance

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.

Trivia

General

  • 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

  • There are 2 vehicles (the other one being the Stockade based vehicle) under the name of Utility Truck, and 4 variants of the Stockade based Utility Truck.
  • Sometimes, the van may spawn with a wheel-barrow in the back, though it isn't interactive in anyway.
  • The Utility Truck can come with different company signatures and names on the door panels.
  • Despite being based on a truck design which has been sold as new since 2008 and overall has a comparably modern, progressive design, the Utility Van has patches of rust on its body and black exhaust emits from the vehicle when idle or shifting gear, signifying severe engine problems.
