The '''Bobcat''' is a continually recurring range of two-door pick-up trucks first introduced in ''[[Grand Theft Auto III]]'' and featured in nearly every game since then, with the only exception being ''[[GTA Advance]]''. It is manufactured by [[Vapid]] in the [[HD Universe]].
   
The [[Vapid]] '''Bobcat''' is a continually reccurring, civilian pickup truck found in the [[Grand Theft Auto]] franchise. It is widely known for its durability and its off-road capabilities.

===3D Universe===
  +
The GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories renditions resembles a [[wp:Toyota Hilux#Fifth_generation_.281988-1997.29|1989-1994 Toyota Pickup Truck]] with [[wikipedia:Toyota_Tacoma|1995-2005 Tacoma]] influences, while the GTA Vice City, GTA San Andreas and GTA Vice City Stories renditions are based on the [[wp:Ford Ranger (North America)#First generation|first generation Ford Ranger]]. Pre-GTA IV Bobcats have a V6 engine, with the only exception being the 4-cylinder in San Andreas and Vice City Stories, and are available in a one tone body color, or two for the GTA Vice City, GTA San Andreas and GTA Vice City Stories renditions. While similar to earlier renditions, the GTA San Andreas, GTA Liberty City Stories and GTA Vice City Stories renditions also sport lower ground clearance. The GTA III rendition has a 3D modeling glitch where one headlight is rounded but the other is longer and rectangular.
   
==Description==
+
Certain Bobcats in GTA San Andreas may feature [[Sprunk]] cans or a spare wheel in the back, and the Bobcat can be also upgraded at [[TransFender]] in GTA San Andreas with changeable wheels, exhausts, etc. Along with the GTA Vice City rendition of the [[Moonbeam]], the game's Bobcat is one of the earliest vehicles in the series to features its name printed on its body (on the tailgate). The Bobcat is used as a gang car by the [[Trailer Park Mafia]] in GTA Vice City Stories.

The GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories renditions resemble a second generation [[wp:Chevrolet S-10#Second generation|Chevrolet S-10]], while the GTA Vice City, GTA San Andreas and GTA Vice City Stories renditions are based on the first generation [[wp:Ford Ranger|Ford Ranger]] (American version). Pre-GTA IV Bobcats have a V6 engine, with the only exception being the 4-cylinder San Andreas version, and are available in a one tone body color, or two for the GTA Vice City, GTA San Andreas and GTA Vice City Stories renditions.

===''Grand Theft Auto IV''===
The Bobcat is used as a gang car by the [[Trailer Park Mafia]] in GTA Vice City Stories.
+
In [[Grand Theft Auto IV]], the Bobcat is now a full-size step side pickup truck, rather than a compact. It mostly resembles a slightly altered [[wp:Chevrolet C/K|1988-1998 Chevrolet C/K]] with the headlamps similar to the older [[wp:Chevrolet C/K#1973-1987|1981-1987 model]]. Unlike its real life counterpart, the truck has a very powerful 550 Cubic Inch (9.0L) V10 engine. Despite having "SUPER 4X4" written on the side, the Bobcat is purely rear wheel drive, or they may have the 4WD disabled. Bobcats can be seen with optional grille guards, or a roll bar with or without four lights on top, and on rare occurrences, with both. Bobcats may also, very rarely, come with an additional bed cover.

The Bobcat is fairly slow at 135 mph, but has high torque and strong, stiff supension. However, the low power and heavy weight means it takes a long time and a straight and clear road for the Bobcat to achieve maximum speed. It is rear-wheel drive and handles well on rough terrain, so it can be used for mild off-roading, but is inferior to the [[Patriot]] in this respect. Strangely enough, the San Andreas version has an incorrectly transversely-mounted engine, like in a front-drive vehicle, but however, appears to be installed at an angle and drives the rear wheels. This is similar to the [[Kuruma]] which is a front-drive car but the engine is longitudinally mounted and uses chains to drive the wheels.

[[File:Bobcat-GTA4-front.jpg|thumb|A Bobcat in GTA IV (<small>[[:Image:Bobcat-GTA4-rear.jpg|Rear quarter view, with additional top-mounted spotlights]]</small>).]]In [[Grand Theft Auto IV]] , the Bobcat is now a full-size step side pickup truck, rather than a compact. As it bears a [[Vapid]] badge, which is a parody of Ford, it loosely resembles a 2005 Ford Ranger, but it appears more bulkier in appearance, thus retaining some cues the [[wp:Chevrolet C/K#1973-1987|1981 Chevrolet C]]. The truck has a very powerful 550 Cubic Inch (9.0L) V10 engine. Despite having "SUPER 4X4" written on the side, the Bobcat is purely rear wheel drive, or they may have the 4WD disabled. Bobcats can be seen with optional grille guards, or a roll bar with or without four lights on top, and on rare occurrences, with both. Bobcats may also, very rarely, come with an additional bed cover.

The Bobcat is fairly slow at 135 mph, but has high torque and strong, stiff suspension. However, the low power and heavy weight means it takes a long time and a straight and clear road for the Bobcat to achieve maximum speed. It is rear-wheel drive and handles well on rough terrain, so it can be used for mild off-roading, but is inferior to the [[Patriot]] in this respect. Some versions are four wheel drive. In GTA San Andreas, like the [[Sadler]], the four cylinder engine is mounted transversely, which is impossible to drive the rear wheels without driving the front as well.
   
The GTA Chinatown Wars Bobcat is not unlike the GTA IV in terms of appearance and performance, with several minor tweaks and a permanent roll bar.
+
===''Grand Theft Auto IV''===
  +
In terms of performance, the Bobcat is capable of rapid acceleration and a slow top speed. The vehicle does not turn sharply, but can powerslide around corners with enough use of the emergency brake. Off road, the Bobcat suffers from lack of 4WD, low ground clearance, and extremely poor wheel articulation. Also, the engine is somewhat overpowering, resulting in undesired wheel-spin in soft sand. The truck should not be considered a heavy duty vehicle for off road use. The Bobcat also has a 5-speed manual transmission, as indicated by a third pedal to the left, if looked at closely enough. Damage is average, and because of the roll bar, it won't have much roof damage in rollovers.

===GTA V===
 
A Bobcat is seen with a [[Sabre]] on a bridge above some trainlines in the second trailer, meaning both vehicles could be in the game. Also, it was shown in Franklin's trailer at a red light and the rear end looks longer than the GTAIV version and looks a bit higher than before.
 
 
== Variants ==
 
The regular Bobcat is available with various unique qualities in some of the games it appears in:
 
* In GTA III, the player can acquire a bulletproof, fireproof and explosion-proof Bobcat from "[[Evidence Dash]]". This can be achieved by pinning the truck at an obstacle and carjacking it while it remains stationary or slow-moving. (Note: The doors of the Bobcat are locked, even after all six packages are dropped, making carjacking the vehicle impossible) If the player is required to destroy the evidence by destroying the truck, the player can do so by going to a safehouse garage, ramming the truck until it catches fire, park and leave the truck in the garage and wait for it to explode (thereby completing the mission). Once the player reopens the garage door, the truck is fully repaired.
 
* In GTA Vice City, the player can acquire a black-and-red Bobcat during "[[Autocide]]", when the player is required to kill two targets ([[Marcus Hammond]] and [[Franco Carter]]) in the parked Bobcat. The easiest way to obtain the truck is by killing the driver using a sniper rifle from afar (which forces the passenger to exit the truck instead of gaining control of the truck himself), gaining access to the truck.
 
* In GTA San Andreas, two all-black Bobcats (suspected to be used by the [[CIA]]) are featured during "[[Stowaway]]". The player can reach the Bobcats, at the cost of missing the departing [[Andromada]] and failing the mission.
 
* In GTA Liberty City Stories, two uniquely colored Bobcats are featured during "[[Love and Bullets]]" (colored black) and "[[Panlantic Land Grab]]" (colored white with brown bumpers).
 
* In GTA Vice City Stories, fireproof Bobcats are featured during "[[Shakedown (GTA VCS)|Shakedown]]" and "[[D.I.V.O.R.C.E.]]".
 
* In GTA IV, a Bobcat is requested as part of [[Stevie's Car Thefts]], appearing with a pale brown body. As a new Bobcat will respawn at the same spot until the player delivers one to [[S&M Auto Sales]], the player can save one at their safehouse before delivering another. Just like the [[Rancher]], the Bobcat may spawn with a few accesories.
 
 
In addition, there exists a gang variant of the Bobcat in GTA Chinatown Wars driven by the [[Irish-American Killers|Irish Killers]] gang. The "gang" Bobcat is distinguished by its green body and red roof.

==Trivia==
 
[[Image:Bobcat-GTACW-papercraft.jpg|275px|thumb|right|A rendering of the papercraft Bobcat from the GTA Chinatown Wars section of the [[Rockstar Games Social Club]].]]
 
 
* During development of GTA III, the Bobcat originally had a rollcage.
 
* At one point during devolopment of GTA III, the Bobcat sometimes came in a gold color.
 
* The Bobcat is the most common pickup truck in GTA San Andreas.
 
* The Bobcat is four-wheel drive in [[Grand Theft Auto III|GTA III]] and [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City|GTA Vice City]]
 
* There is a visual glitch in GTA Vice City Stories that after using the [[Pay 'n' Spray]] in a Bobcat, the tailgate is open.
 
* The Bobcat in GTA IV sells for $2,500 at [[S&M Auto Sales]] after completion of [[Stevie's Car Thefts]].
 
* Under the "[[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars|Chinatown Wars]]" section of the [[Rockstar Games Social Club]] website, members may download a printable papercraft model of the game's Bobcat. The vehicle's design is more alike that of GTA IV than GTA Chinatown Wars.
 
* The default radio stations for the Bobcat are:
 
**'''''GTA Vice City & GTA Vice City Stories''''': [[V-Rock]].
 
**'''''GTA San Andreas''''': [[Radio X]].
 
**'''''GTA IV''''': [[San Juan Sounds]].
 
* In GTA San Andreas, a visual glitch is present in the Bobcat. If you go to any [[Transfenders]] mod shop and choose any exhaust pipe mod option, the custom exhaust pipes will be incorrectly placed inside the rear bumper.
 
*All Bobcats while spawning in GTA San Andreas were driven by a poor man wearing a blue sweater and ivory pants. With exception in the [[airports]] (occasionally) driven by airport controller man.
 
*In GTA San Andreas the Bobcat together with the [[Sadler]] is the third most durable vehicle in the game, as seen in the [http://www.grandtheftwiki.com/Vehicle_Stats_in_GTA_San_Andreas stats].
 
* The [[wp: Bobcat|Bobcat]] is an American mammal in the cat family.
 
* The GTA VC, GTA SA and GTA VCS renditions also seems to bear similarities with [[wp:Toyota Kijang|Toyota Kijang]], a long-running lineup of pickup trucks and minivans sold exclusively in [[wp:Indonesia|Indonesia]].
 
* In GTA IV, if the player attempts to hop on to the rear cargo/freight compartment while the vehicle is still in motion, the player would most likely lose his/her balance and result in a bad fall on to the ground. However if the player happens to be stuck in the cargo/freight compartment, his/her health will get gradually reduced and eventually become [[wasted]].
 
* In GTA IV, the Bobcat seems to have three pedals, which could indicate it having a 5-Speed manual transmission.
 
* The Bobcat is the only vehicle to not take the qualities of the animal named after it, (probably it is only named "Bobcat" because of the word present on it's tailgate).
 
* The name Bobcat may also be a referance to Bobcat EMEA an excavator manufacturer.
 
* Twice in GTA IV, the Bobcat is used as a getaway vehicle in [[Hostile Negotiation]] and [[The Snow Storm]] chronologically.
 
* In [[GTA IV]], The Bobcat will never be found without boxes in the compartment.
 
* In [[GTA V]], you can place a bike in the rear of the Bobcat.

For the GTA V version, named the Bobcat XL, see Bobcat XL.


The Bobcat is a continually recurring range of two-door pick-up trucks first introduced in Grand Theft Auto III and featured in nearly every game since then, with the only exception being GTA Advance. It is manufactured by Vapid in the HD Universe.

DesignEdit

3D UniverseEdit

The GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories renditions resembles a 1989-1994 Toyota Pickup Truck with 1995-2005 Tacoma influences, while the GTA Vice City, GTA San Andreas and GTA Vice City Stories renditions are based on the first generation Ford Ranger. Pre-GTA IV Bobcats have a V6 engine, with the only exception being the 4-cylinder in San Andreas and Vice City Stories, and are available in a one tone body color, or two for the GTA Vice City, GTA San Andreas and GTA Vice City Stories renditions. While similar to earlier renditions, the GTA San Andreas, GTA Liberty City Stories and GTA Vice City Stories renditions also sport lower ground clearance. The GTA III rendition has a 3D modeling glitch where one headlight is rounded but the other is longer and rectangular.

Certain Bobcats in GTA San Andreas may feature Sprunk cans or a spare wheel in the back, and the Bobcat can be also upgraded at TransFender in GTA San Andreas with changeable wheels, exhausts, etc. Along with the GTA Vice City rendition of the Moonbeam, the game's Bobcat is one of the earliest vehicles in the series to features its name printed on its body (on the tailgate). The Bobcat is used as a gang car by the Trailer Park Mafia in GTA Vice City Stories.

Grand Theft Auto IVEdit

In Grand Theft Auto IV, the Bobcat is now a full-size step side pickup truck, rather than a compact. It mostly resembles a slightly altered 1988-1998 Chevrolet C/K with the headlamps similar to the older 1981-1987 model. Unlike its real life counterpart, the truck has a very powerful 550 Cubic Inch (9.0L) V10 engine. Despite having "SUPER 4X4" written on the side, the Bobcat is purely rear wheel drive, or they may have the 4WD disabled. Bobcats can be seen with optional grille guards, or a roll bar with or without four lights on top, and on rare occurrences, with both. Bobcats may also, very rarely, come with an additional bed cover.

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown WarsEdit

The GTA Chinatown Wars Bobcat is similar to the GTA IV one in terms of appearance, with several minor tweaks and a permanent roll bar.

PerformanceEdit

3D UniverseEdit

The Bobcat is fairly slow at 135 mph, but has high torque and strong, stiff suspension. However, the low power and heavy weight means it takes a long time and a straight and clear road for the Bobcat to achieve maximum speed. It is rear-wheel drive and handles well on rough terrain, so it can be used for mild off-roading, but is inferior to the Patriot in this respect. Some versions are four wheel drive. In GTA San Andreas, like the Sadler, the four cylinder engine is mounted transversely, which is impossible to drive the rear wheels without driving the front as well.

Grand Theft Auto IVEdit

In terms of performance, the Bobcat is capable of rapid acceleration and a slow top speed. The vehicle does not turn sharply, but can powerslide around corners with enough use of the emergency brake. Off road, the Bobcat suffers from lack of 4WD, low ground clearance, and extremely poor wheel articulation. Also, the engine is somewhat overpowering, resulting in undesired wheel-spin in soft sand. The truck should not be considered a heavy duty vehicle for off road use. The Bobcat also has a 5-speed manual transmission, as indicated by a third pedal to the left, if looked at closely enough. Damage is average, and because of the roll bar, it won't have much roof damage in rollovers.

The Bobcat can be modified at TransFenders.

VariantsEdit

The regular Bobcat is available with various unique qualities in some of the games it appears in:

  • In GTA III, the player can acquire a bulletproof, fireproof and explosion-proof Bobcat from "Evidence Dash". This can be achieved by pinning the truck at an obstacle and carjacking it while it remains stationary or slow-moving. (Note: The doors of the Bobcat are locked, even after all six packages are dropped, making carjacking the vehicle impossible) If the player is required to destroy the evidence by destroying the truck, the player can do so by going to a safehouse garage, ramming the truck until it catches fire, park and leave the truck in the garage and wait for it to explode (thereby completing the mission). Once the player reopens the garage door, the truck is fully repaired.
  • In GTA Vice City, the player can acquire a black-and-red Bobcat during "Autocide", when the player is required to kill two targets (Marcus Hammond and Franco Carter) in the parked Bobcat. The easiest way to obtain the truck is by killing the driver using a sniper rifle from afar (which forces the passenger to exit the truck instead of gaining control of the truck himself), gaining access to the truck.
  • In GTA San Andreas, two all-black Bobcats (suspected to be used by the CIA) are featured during "Stowaway". The player can reach the Bobcats, at the cost of missing the departing Andromada and failing the mission.
  • In GTA Liberty City Stories, two uniquely colored Bobcats are featured during "Love and Bullets" (colored black) and "Panlantic Land Grab" (colored white with brown bumpers).
  • In GTA Vice City Stories, fireproof Bobcats are featured during "Shakedown" and "D.I.V.O.R.C.E.".
  • In GTA IV, a Bobcat is requested as part of Stevie's Car Thefts, appearing with a pale brown body. As a new Bobcat will respawn at the same spot until the player delivers one to S&M Auto Sales, the player can save one at their safehouse before delivering another. Just like the Rancher, the Bobcat may spawn with a few accessories.

In addition, there exists a gang variant of the Bobcat in GTA Chinatown Wars driven by the Irish Killers gang. The "gang" Bobcat is distinguished by its green body and red roof.
