"Have fun trying to parallel-park the Bobcat XL in a busy city center. This extra long, heavy-duty pick-up truck has become equally popular with both farmers and people who shop at farmers' markets."
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Vapid Bobcat XL is a two-door pickup truck appearing in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.


Grand Theft Auto V

The Bobcat XL is essentially based on the original Bobcat from Grand Theft Auto IV, but comes in a long-wheelbase XL variant. The vehicle retains the front section of the original model. The rear section, however, no longer features stepsides on the truck bed, but is longer than the GTA IV version. All Bobcats XL now come equipped with bull-bars, and some have camper shells over the bed. While the design hints at a dual (double rear wheel) configuration, the Bobcat XL has single wheels and tires on the rear axle.

The tail light texture is shared with the Moonbeam and resembles the tail light design from the KK Jeep Liberty. The Bobcat can tow trailers, as with the Sadler and Bison. There is also a brushguard found as default on the Bobcat, in a similar way to the Sadler in Grand Theft Auto V.

Grand Theft Auto V

The Bobcat XL is, being a heavy-duty pick up truck, relatively slow, however, given its purpose and size, is acceptable. The vehicle itself is of large mass and therefore negates performance in many areas, including top speed, acceleration rate, and handling. The vehicle has above average deformation thanks to the front bullbar, wide wheel arches (especially in the rear, which benefit in inability to camber the wheels upon crashing), and wide body frame. The vehicle takes large head on crashes before it starts to show signs of engine damage, and the vehicle is also largely bullet-resistant (with the exception of the occupants, who are still vulnerable due to large windshields).

Much like its base model, the Bobcat XL is powered by what is stated to be a 8.9L (550 cui) V10, according to badges, however, the engine takes the form of a single overhead cam V8. The high displacement engine is connected to, evidently by sound, a 5 speed transmission system, further connected via driveshafts to a front engine, rear wheel drive drivetrain (contrary to its "Super 4x4" badges, which indicates it is an AWD vehicle).

  • Seen driving around in Elysian Island.
  • Two are found at a shoot-off near a bridge, not far from Fort Zancudo. One has a cab and another is just standard. The cabbed one has a flat tire and also getting it back can be a challenge with back up gangs arriving to get their money back.

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • The Bobcat XL was added onto the in-game site Southern San Andreas Super Autos as part of The Business Update. However, it is listed under the luxury section instead of the off-road section, which is strange considering the truck's work duty appearance.
