The Karin BeeJay XL is a four-door midsize SUV in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.


Grand Theft Auto V

The car features a retro utilitarian design theme, which seems to be inspired by the Japanese styling found on the Toyota FJ Cruiser, but with a flatter, less aggressive appearance and regular second-row doors (as opposed to suicide doors). The rear bumper and fascia bears some resemblance to the first generation Toyota RAV4. The grille resembles that of a Hummer H2.

The sides of the SUV lack extra formations. The lower body is a different color to the upper body.

Grand Theft Auto V

The BeeJay XL, like its real life counterpart, has a large V8-sounding engine which is capable of providing good top speed, however it leaves much to be desired from acceleration. Due to its heavy weight, some oversteer is noticeable, and because of this, caution must be taken when cornering at high speeds. It is also shown that it can sustain heavy amounts of damage. In terms of pick up and go the Beejay XL is sub par in acceleration for an SUV but maintains the same level of speed from its competition such as the Gresley and the Granger. When traveling at high speeds there is a notable amount of traction loss compared to its counterparts, yet it seems to have stiffer suspension allowing the vehicle to grab a little more air than the rest.

  • The word "BeeJay" is a double entendre. In one hand, it's a clear pun on its real-life equivalent, the Toyota FJ Cruiser (in the past, the BJ was the diesel-engined model of the original Toyota FJ). On the other hand, it references a blowjob.
    • "BeeJay" may also be a reference to the name of the real-life Hummer midsize SUV.
  • The car's ability to sustain heavy damage may be inspired from real-life Toyota Land Cruiser's (especially the original FJ) exceptional reliability, longevity, and toughness.
  • The default radio stations for the BeeJay XL are FlyLo FM or Soulwax FM.

Grand Theft Auto V

  • Originally the BeeJay only had the basic modifications available, but a few body modifications were added in an update.
  • In the mission Complications, for some reason, when the player arrives to the destination where Michael tells Franklin to crash the SUV, Jimmy's BeeJay XL makes a more louder and aggressive sound. This is most likely done to dramatize the following sequence.
  • In the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game, the player can't keep Jimmy's BeeJay XL after Complications, as it will eventually despawn. This was identified as a bug, and fixed in the enhanced versions of the game.
  • If the player has bought the Offroad Bumper and the front of the car is deformed enough, part of the bumper will remain in its original place and simply "float" in front of the car.
