First introduced in [[Grand Theft Auto III]], the Yankee was predominantly designed to be one of the largest [[File:Yankee_badges.png|thumb]]straight-trucks available in the games, with a boxed cargo compartment (which, by [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]], would contain actual cargo). The Yankee's size and weight often contributes to its poor cornering, poor acceleration and poor hill-climbing abilities, but may achieve decent speed on a straightaway (112 mph.) The performance and appearances of the Yankee are also slightly different between renditions in GTA III and [[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories|GTA Liberty City Stories]], and other GTA games it is featured in. For renditions in GTA Vice City, [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas|GTA San Andreas]], [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories|GTA Vice City Stories]], [[Grand Theft Auto IV|GTA IV]] and [[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars|GTA Chinatown Wars]], the Yankee features an extended cargo hold that also results in poorer acceleration and steering. As with any two-door truck, the Yankee only has room for 2 occupants, including the driver. The Yankee in GTA IV is manufactured by [[Vapid]]

The Yankee is generally useless due to its performance and susceptibility to rollovers on rough terrain and it has no special features, expect that it may be used as a moving "staircase". The player can jump on the hood, and then to the roof, and then to the container. This can be very useful to reach high places, like hidden packages and weapons, even Easter eggs.

In Single player in GTA IV, the Yankee comes in seven variants. The plain Yankee is by far the least common. The other six variants differ only by the logos on the sides. They are [[Sprunk]], [[Liberty State Delivery]], [[Redwood Cigarettes]], [[ECola]], [[Pisswasser]], and [[Binco]]. The ECola, Pisswasser, and Binco variants all have a cooling apparatus above the cab, while the Sprunk variant, interestingly enough, does not. The Sprunk variant also appears to be worn down.

In [[The Lost and Damned]], an open bed Yankee, the only one of its kind in the series, is featured.

The Vapid Yankee is a large straight commercial truck that is featured in:

Description Edit

First introduced in Grand Theft Auto III, the Yankee was predominantly designed to be one of the largest
Yankee badges
straight-trucks available in the games, with a boxed cargo compartment (which, by Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, would contain actual cargo). The Yankee's size and weight often contributes to its poor cornering, poor acceleration and poor hill-climbing abilities, but may achieve decent speed on a straightaway (112 mph.) The performance and appearances of the Yankee are also slightly different between renditions in GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories, and other GTA games it is featured in. For renditions in GTA Vice City, GTA San Andreas, GTA Vice City Stories, GTA IV and GTA Chinatown Wars, the Yankee features an extended cargo hold that also results in poorer acceleration and steering. As with any two-door truck, the Yankee only has room for 2 occupants, including the driver. The Yankee in GTA IV is manufactured by Vapid

The Yankee is generally useless due to its performance and susceptibility to rollovers on rough terrain and it has no special features, except that it may be used as a moving "staircase". The player can jump on the hood, and then to the roof, and then to the container. This can be very useful to reach high places, like hidden packages and weapons, even Easter eggs.

The Yankee prior to GTA IV is loosely based on the Ford F700. The GTA IV rendition assumes the design of an 1980's International Harvester S-Series/1980's GMC Topkick.

Variants Edit

In Single player in GTA IV, the Yankee comes in seven variants. The plain Yankee is by far the least common. The other six variants differ only by the logos on the sides. They are Sprunk, Liberty State Delivery, Redwood Cigarettes, ECola, Pisswasser, and Binco. The ECola, Pisswasser, and Binco variants all have a cooling apparatus above the cab, while the Sprunk variant, interestingly enough, does not. The Sprunk variant also appears to be worn down.

Open bed YankeeEdit

Yankee-TLAD-openbed-front

The open bed Yankee during "Liberty City Choppers" in The Lost and Damned (Rear quarter view).

In The Lost and Damned, an open bed Yankee, the only one of its kind in the series, is featured. While its chassis and cab design is still derived from the GTA IV Yankee's design, the open bed Yankee is also distinguishable by it weathered design (complete with dents and rough bodywork), and comes in only one color scheme (gray with white stripes). The open bed Yankee is also considerably more nimble and faster given its lighter build.

In single player mode, the open bed Yankee is only featured during "Liberty City Choppers" as a transport for a load of motorcycles. Upon completion of the mission, the player loses the truck; the player is thus required to intentionally fail the mission by killing the accompanying Jim Fitzgerald or killing themselves after parking the truck at a safehouse parking lot. If this trick is performed while the truck is full of bikes they will remain in it, however they won't be interactive.

In multiplayer, the open bed Yankee is available in the Club Business, during which it is used to transport two Nightblades around the city, and is instructed to be stolen.

Ammu-Nation Yankee Edit

Yankee-GTACW-AmmuNation

An Ammu-Nation Yankee in GTA Chinatown Wars.

A variant of the Yankee in GTA Chinatown Wars, also known simply as the "Yankee", bears an Ammu-Nation livery. The Ammu-Nation Yankee only begins appearing on the streets after "Pimp His Ride", when the player gains access to AmmuNation.net. The truck is identifiable by its red, white and blue color, as well as a visible blue star on the roof of the cargo compartment and Ammu-Nation's rocket-shaped logo on the sides. Performance is otherwise similar to a regular Yankee. Being a large truck, this variant of the Yankee cannot be resprayed or repaired; neither can the player save the truck in the garage under normal circumstances.

The Ammu-Nation Yankee typically contains a weapon's cache for a specific weapon that can be acquired through the theft of the vehicle; however, the truck is locked as long as the driver is inside, so players must resort to damaging the truck until the driver exits. From this point on, players may acquire the truck and drive it to a secluded safehouse; killing the shotgun-armed and well armored driver is optional. Once at a safehouse, players will automatically exit the truck, and may weld open the cargo hold for their reward. The truck will remain locked thereafter.

It is one of the three cars seen in 3D in GTA:Chinatown Wars along the Admiral and the Enforcer. Its license plate is AMMU N4T.

TriviaEdit

  • The Yankee is the only vehicle that has been proven to work with a mission in GTA Liberty City Stories, where the player may obtain a Maverick without using any third party trainer programs. The mission
    Yankee sign 4

    Graffiti tags.

    requires the use of the "perfect handling" cheat to be activated, thus giving the truck a jumping capability. Using this the player can use the truck, make it jump on the building, and steal the helicopter.[1]
  • Like many industrial vehicles, the Yankee has a changing "skin", along with a random paint job. This means that the Yankee will have a random company logo printed on the side of the truck.
  • In GTA Vice City, GTA San Andreas, and GTA Vice City Stories, if the player breaks off the rear shutter, it is possible to see the contents of the truck. For example, a fish truck will be carrying crates
    Yankee sign 1

    Graffiti tags.

    of fish, a butcher truck will be carrying meat, etc. However, plain trucks tend to be empty.
  • The GTA IV rendition of the truck sometimes comes with an additional refrigeration unit mounted over the truck cab.
  • The Yankee plays the following radio stations by default when entered:
  • The Yankee lacks reverse lights in GTA IV.
  • The Yankee has appeared in other Rockstar games: a white Yankee with a dirty blue cargo hold can be found parked in an industrial yard in Bully, while Yankees appear in both Manhunt and Manhunt 2. In all of these appearances, however, it is non-interactive.
  • Yankee is a slang term for an American.
  • The Truck could be named after the professional baseball team, the New York Yankees.
  • In GTA III, the Yankee is wanted for Import/Export.
  • The GTA IV version of the Yankee has a glitch, when you get it when its freshly spawned it may be pretty fast but when you "heal" it at a Pay 'n' Spray (or use the heal pack on Multiplayer), for some strange reason it makes it much slower. (does not include the flatbed Yankee)
  • The GTA San Andreas version appears to have the wrong engine sound which is probably intended for the Benson.
