The Vapid Fleet Sedan is a commercial vehicle platform found in Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto V .

Design

Vapid Cruiser

A civilian Vapid Sedan, added to the game via a mod.

The Vapid Fleet Sedan is based primarily on the 1992-97 Ford Crown Victoria with some influences from the 1998-2011 model. The Crown Victoria is a popular vehicle for police and taxi applications for its performance and durability due to its body-on-frame construction, rear wheel drive layout, and V8 powertrain.

Unlike the Declasse Merit or the Bravado Buffalo, there is no consumer variant of this sedan, though one can be spawn using mods, as seen below; in real-life, Ford discontinued retail sales of the Crown Victoria after the 2007 model year.

Regardless of its application, the Vapid Fleet Sedan features a front pushbar, CB radio equipment, and black wheels with chrome centercaps. Law enforcement models additionally have a police computer, roof-mounted lightbars, and a spotlight mounted on the driver's side. The taxi variants have a rear pushbar, fare meter, taxi lights and markers, and a hood-mounted taxi medallion; some taxis may also have roof-mounted advertising.

GTA V

The model has been updated for GTA V. Still heavily resembling a Ford Crown Victoria, this time the 1998-2011 model than the the GTA IV model.

Performance

The Vapid Fleet Sedan is powered by a 4.6L V8, coupled to a 5 speed gearbox in a RWD layout. Acceleration is good, and the top speed is above average and its braking and suspension are very good. It has a low rev limit, which can be felt at higher rpms. Also, the engine feels as if it runs out of steam before the transmission switches gear. It has a higher top speed than its Declasse-branded competitor(Merit).

The car's weakness lies in its poor suspension, as the car experiences incredible amounts of body roll and has a tendency to oversteer off throttle. Stability is average at high speeds, but due to its very soft suspension the car does wallow and float about quite a bit. The car does appear to have some decent tires on it, however, which does help with improving the handling quality, if only just a bit.

Crash deformation is also average, and the suspension does not take very long to start meandering one way or the other. The engine is not fragile, but is certainly not the toughest to destroy in the game, although it fares better than the "Buffalo" Police Cruiser.

Trivia

  • The vehicle comes in two versions. A model that features bumpers that are of the same color with the car`s body, and a model that has black bumpers.
