The Boxville has a rather generic design, and most closely resembles a Chevrolet or GMC Step Van that ranges from the late 1970s to the early 1990s.
In-game, looks very bulky and large with small thin wheels. All models are seen with different paintjob conditions. SA model looks very clean, VCS model features a semi faded paintjob at the bottom and the VC model looks with a more faded paintjob (more noticeable at the bottom).
The body resembles the GMC Step Van and its twin, the Chevrolet Step Van. It is still the heaviest delivery van in all the GTA games. The vehicle is now manufactured by Brute and sounds heavier than before.
In the HD Universe, the Boxville now includes a bit rounded bodywork, smaller frontage and a bigger front bumper, while the rear bumper is now a stepside bumper for the cargo doors. This model, unlike previous renditions, doesn't "cut" the driver's compartment and the cargo compartment. Instead, features a small corridor that leads to the cargo compartment for an easier delivery.
In GTA IV, there are clean variants and "vandalized" variants, which the later one features a graffiti over the lower section of the side panels. However, in GTA V, there are no longer vandalized versions. The LSDS & LSDWP Boxvilles features 4 strobe lights that can be activated, as well as some accessories, such roof frames and 2 stacks of cones at the front.
The Boxville's speed and handling is mostly the same as any large vehicle, with a top speed leveling off at around 111 miles per hour. Due to its large size and weight, it suffers from poor steering and handling, and its tires lose grip with the road much easier. Because of its high center of gravity, it is prone to tipping over if driven on rough, uneven terrain. However, its large size can be used as an advantage; It can easily ram smaller cars off the road.
In GTA IV, the vehicle has become even heavier, slower, and harder to turn at high speeds.
The Boxville returns to GTA V with a much stronger engine, which appears to be a V6 turbo-diesel. It also handles like a truck and has a truck horn; therefore it is considered "Industrial" instead of a "Van".

GTA San Andreas features a specialized variant of the Boxville, referred officially as a Boxville, named internally in game files as a "boxburg" (a possible short form of "Boxville Burglary"), and unofficially dubbed the "Boxville Black" or "Black Boxville".
Differences from a standard Boxville include its unique dark gray body color and a quieter engine (using the same engine noise as the Pony). The van is integral to the game's burglary sub-missions that take place at night, and is prominently used in one mission where Carl Johnson has to steal Colonel Fuhrberger's weapons for Ryder before sunrise.
Humane Labs & Research Boxville
It can be stolen during the mission and stored in safehouse garage only if the gas grenades are picked up first and then the van stolen.
