The '''Benson''' is a truck that has appeared in both the [[3D Universe]] and the [[HD Universe]]. It is manufactured by [[Vapid]] in the HD Universe.
The [[Vapid]] '''Benson''' is a sports car which first appeared in [[Grand Theft Auto 2]], and also a cube van/truck in [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]] and later games.
 
 
In all, the Benson has appeared in the following games:
 
 
* [[Grand Theft Auto 2]]
 
* [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]]
 
* [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]]
 
* [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]]
 
* [[Grand Theft Auto IV]]
 
* [[Grand Theft Auto V]]

In ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]]'', ''[[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]]'', and ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]]'', the Benson name was applied to a very different type of vehicle: a van. This version of the Benson resembles a [[wp:Ford E-Series|1978 or 1979 Ford E-Series]] cube van with a "[[wp:luton|luton]]" cargo compartment. In San Andreas, it is available in several different designs, and appears in red and blue body in Vice City Stories.
[[Image:Benson-GTA2-ingame.jpg|thumb|200px|A Benson with its lights on in GTA 2.]]
 
   
In [[Grand Theft Auto 2]], the Benson is a [[Vehicles in GTA 2|sports car]]. It is suggestively based on the [[wp:Mercedes-Benz 300SL|Mercedes-Benz 300SL]], evidenced by the Benson's similar body design, as well as its gull-wing doors and its name being similar to the Mercedes-Benz car brand. The only difference is the 300SL does not feature split frontal and rear windscreens, as the Benson has.
+
The Benson in ''GTA San Andreas'' has a wrong engine sound, as it makes a heavy truck sound, instead of a light/medium truck sound, which the Yankee incorrectly has.

===''Grand Theft Auto IV''===
In [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]], [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]], and [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]], the Benson name was applied to a very different type of vehicle: a van. This version of the Benson resembles a 1978 or 1979 [[wp:Ford E-Series|Ford (E-Series)]] cube van with a "[[wp:luton|luton]]" cargo compartment. In San Andreas, it is available in several different designs, and appears in red and blue body in Vice City Stories.
+
Manufactured by [[Vapid]] in [[Grand Theft Auto IV]], the Benson is much larger (the heaviest car in the game, according to the game files). The GTA IV version also has less tendency to roll over. It has a bottler truck body-style, though certain versions (such as the mail truck) don't emphasize its function. The Benson is heavily based on the [http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5183/5651365560_194e23505c.jpg International 4700 Delivery Truck Chassis]. The Benson's engine is stated to be an intercooled V8. Unlike previous versions, the GTA IV Benson has a massive grille guard. Company logos appearing on the Benson include those of [[Burger Shot]], [[Cluckin' Bell]], [[Sprunk]], [[Mr. Wong's Laundrette]], [[Post Op]], and [[Truck You!]].
  +
In GTA IV same as Mule, Benson does not power with air-brake but instead, it powers with disc/disk-brake and/or drum brake which is rather odd for a heavy vehicle.
   
The Benson in GTA San Andreas has the wrong engine sound, as it makes a heavy truck sound but should make the light/medium truck sound, which the Yankee incorrectly has. In the PC version, this can be fixed by swapping the ID numbers of the Yankee and Benson in the vehicles.ide file. Unlike missing wheel in [[DFT-30]] and [[Beagle]] in [[Fort Carson]], it can't downloaded in Xbox version.
+
===''Grand Theft Auto V''===
  +
The Benson returns to ''Grand Theft Auto V'', with an identical design as ''GTA IV'', however, it now sports a larger pushbar, and comes in different liveries. It also sports a rear pallet trolley attached to a rear folding platform which is positioned below the rear hinged door.

It has a bottler truck body-style, though certain versions (such as the mail truck) don't emphasize its function.

The Benson's engine is an intercooled V8. Unlike previous versions, the[[File:Benson_badges.png|thumb|Badging on the Benson.]] GTA IV Benson has a massive grille guard.

===3D Universe===
The Benson in GTA 2 is noted for its substantial top speed, but at the same time it suffers from delayed acceleration due to slow gear-shifting as the car speeds up. And while the car features good braking, the Benson suffers from occasional tailspins when cornering at high speeds.
+
Being the smallest cube van between ''GTA Vice City'' and ''GTA Vice City Stories'', the Benson has a decent top speed and quick acceleration, and has room for 2 people including the driver and is the in the GTA III era games. However, it is prone to flipping over easily on rough terrain and when turning around corners at high speeds. It has no special features. The Benson is quite vulnerable to bullet damage in GTA San Andreas although it can withstand a lot of damage before catching fire.
   
When [[crusher|crushed]], the vehicle awards the player [[ElectroFingers]].
+
Players can even do doughnuts in it by steering it in the slightest possible angle (almost straight) and, naturally, putting the virtual foot to the floor. This can be done on the PC by using an analog controller (such as a PS2 controller through a USB converter), but not with the keyboard due to a cap on the number of simultaneous key strokes that can be accepted.

+
Being an enlarged truck in GTA IV, the Benson obviously suffers from poor steering, as well as a slow acceleration, but far from the worst in the game. However, the truck can achieve fairly moderate top speeds, but it will take ages to get there due to the poor acceleration. In addition, its weight does not help when the player needs to stop the vehicle while it is going high speeds. Also its ability to soak up bullets is an advantage for when the player is attempting to escape gang members or police. Being extremely heavy, the Benson can shove traffic out of its way and keep going with ease.

===''Grand Theft Auto V''===
Being an enlarged truck in GTA IV, the Benson obviously suffers from poor steering, as well as a slow acceleration, but far from the worst in the game. However, the truck can achieve fairly moderate top speeds at 126 mph, but it will take ages to get there due to the poor acceleration. In addition, its weight does not help when the player needs to stop the vehicle while it is going high speeds. Also it's ability to soak up bullets is an advantage for when the player is attempting to escape gang members or police. Being extremely heavy, the Benson can shove traffic out of its way and keep going with ease.
+
The Benson in GTA V is much better than its GTA IV variant. Its speed seems to to have improved since its last appearance, however acceleration still leaves much to be desired, not to mention the low-geared setup, meaning it takes many shifts before it can finally begin to pick up a great deal of speed, which can be a major downfall on pursuits, even despite its acceleration improvements from its last rendition. Its brute strength can withstand a barrage of bullets, making it a highly durable vehicle.
   
=== GTA V ===
+
The engine model appears to be a twin-cam Inline-4 with a fitted turbocharger. This is rather different from what the engine sounds to be, wherein it sounds to be somewhat similar to an Inline-6 diesel. The Benson's engine sound is shared with the [[Mule]], [[Police Riot]] and [[Stockade]], however, the Benson's engine sounds to have a higher redline, meaning revving the vehicle on the spot makes a higher pitch sound than the Mule, Police Riot, and Stockade.
As not much has emerged yet, we have seen the Benson in Trailer 2 and in [[Franklin]]'s Trailer. The design has remained un-changed from [[GTA IV]].[[File:Images-bensonfront.v.jpg|thumb|Benson in [[GTAV]] with an unknown livery on the side of the truck. ]]

The Benson is a truck that has appeared in both the 3D Universe and the HD Universe. It is manufactured by Vapid in the HD Universe.

Design Edit

3D UniverseEdit

In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, the Benson name was applied to a very different type of vehicle: a van. This version of the Benson resembles a 1978 or 1979 Ford E-Series cube van with a "luton" cargo compartment. In San Andreas, it is available in several different designs, and appears in red and blue body in Vice City Stories.

The Benson in GTA San Andreas has a wrong engine sound, as it makes a heavy truck sound, instead of a light/medium truck sound, which the Yankee incorrectly has.

Grand Theft Auto IVEdit

Manufactured by Vapid in Grand Theft Auto IV, the Benson is much larger (the heaviest car in the game, according to the game files). The GTA IV version also has less tendency to roll over. It has a bottler truck body-style, though certain versions (such as the mail truck) don't emphasize its function. The Benson is heavily based on the International 4700 Delivery Truck Chassis. The Benson's engine is stated to be an intercooled V8. Unlike previous versions, the GTA IV Benson has a massive grille guard. Company logos appearing on the Benson include those of Burger Shot, Cluckin' Bell, Sprunk, Mr. Wong's Laundrette, Post Op, and Truck You!. In GTA IV same as Mule, Benson does not power with air-brake but instead, it powers with disc/disk-brake and/or drum brake which is rather odd for a heavy vehicle.

Grand Theft Auto VEdit

The Benson returns to Grand Theft Auto V, with an identical design as GTA IV, however, it now sports a larger pushbar, and comes in different liveries. It also sports a rear pallet trolley attached to a rear folding platform which is positioned below the rear hinged door.

Performance Edit

3D UniverseEdit

Being the smallest cube van between GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories, the Benson has a decent top speed and quick acceleration, and has room for 2 people including the driver and is the in the GTA III era games. However, it is prone to flipping over easily on rough terrain and when turning around corners at high speeds. It has no special features. The Benson is quite vulnerable to bullet damage in GTA San Andreas although it can withstand a lot of damage before catching fire.

Players can even do doughnuts in it by steering it in the slightest possible angle (almost straight) and, naturally, putting the virtual foot to the floor. This can be done on the PC by using an analog controller (such as a PS2 controller through a USB converter), but not with the keyboard due to a cap on the number of simultaneous key strokes that can be accepted.

Grand Theft Auto IVEdit

Being an enlarged truck in GTA IV, the Benson obviously suffers from poor steering, as well as a slow acceleration, but far from the worst in the game. However, the truck can achieve fairly moderate top speeds, but it will take ages to get there due to the poor acceleration. In addition, its weight does not help when the player needs to stop the vehicle while it is going high speeds. Also its ability to soak up bullets is an advantage for when the player is attempting to escape gang members or police. Being extremely heavy, the Benson can shove traffic out of its way and keep going with ease.

Grand Theft Auto VEdit

The Benson in GTA V is much better than its GTA IV variant. Its speed seems to to have improved since its last appearance, however acceleration still leaves much to be desired, not to mention the low-geared setup, meaning it takes many shifts before it can finally begin to pick up a great deal of speed, which can be a major downfall on pursuits, even despite its acceleration improvements from its last rendition. Its brute strength can withstand a barrage of bullets, making it a highly durable vehicle.

The engine model appears to be a twin-cam Inline-4 with a fitted turbocharger. This is rather different from what the engine sounds to be, wherein it sounds to be somewhat similar to an Inline-6 diesel. The Benson's engine sound is shared with the Mule, Police Riot and Stockade, however, the Benson's engine sounds to have a higher redline, meaning revving the vehicle on the spot makes a higher pitch sound than the Mule, Police Riot, and Stockade.

Trivia Edit

GeneralEdit

Grand Theft Auto: Vice CityEdit

  • If the player finds a way to get up and stand on the hood of a Benson that is being driven by an NPC, and the Benson moves forward, Tommy will fall down into the cab. When he gets up, he will be stuck halfway inside the cab, with his head protruding from the roof. He will not be able to get out unless the Benson crashes, where he will pop out and appear standing on its roof.

Grand Theft Auto IVEdit

  • If the player drives a Benson, Securicars may eventually appear. This occurs most likely in Bohan.
  • There is a glitch where one can walk through the front wheels of the Benson.
  • Like the Bus and Yankee, as well as the APC (TBoGT), it will fall into blue hell and spin for a while before landing back on the street when the Swingset Glitch is executed in a Benson.

Grand Theft Auto VEdit

  • The Benson has no rear license plate, but it does have a front license plate.
  • The Benson appears in the online mission "Stickup the Stickup Crew" in variations.
  • If you purchase the property Pitchers when playing Michael, the owner may ask you to deliver the booze, which is in a white unmarked Benson.
  • The rear door can be opened by kicking the roof above near it due to a glitch. After doing so, it can be closed and locked again by shooting it with a Sniper Rifle or any high damage single-shot weapon. The process can be repeated multiple times, but beware as the engine will take longer to startup and you might accidentally break the door. Although most vehicles will fall off, the Nagasaki Blazer can stay for a long time before falling off the cargo bay. (Tested on PS3.)
  • Despite claiming to be an intercooled V8 engine, the in-game model is actually a turbocharged 4-cylinder, without an intercooler.
