The '''Boxville''' is a [[wp:Multi-stop truck|multi-stop truck or walk-in delivery van]] featured in [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]], [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]], [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]], [[Grand Theft Auto IV]] and [[Grand Theft Auto V]].
+
The '''Boxville''' is a [[wp:Multi-stop truck|multi-stop truck or walk-in delivery van]] featured in both [[3D Universe]] and [[HD Universe]]. It's manufactured by [[Brute]] in the HD Universe.
   
== Description ==
+
==Design==
Resembling a Chevrolet or GMC Step Van that ranges from the late 1970s to the early 1990s prior to GTA IV, the Boxville's speed and handling is largely the same as any large vehicle, going 111 mph with poor steering due to its weight.
+
===3D Universe===
  +
The Boxville has a rather generic design, and most closely resembles a Chevrolet or GMC [[wp:Step van|Step Van]] that ranges from the late 1970s to the early 1990s.
   
In GTA IV, the Boxville, now given a [[Brute]] brand name, is now even heavier, slow, and harder to turn at high speeds. In addition, the body resembles a Ford/Utilimaster step van. It is still the heaviest delivery van in all the [[Grand Theft Auto|GTA]] games. After collecting all thirty cars for [[Stevie]] he agrees to purchase cars from [[Niko Bellic]], with the Boxville fetching $1,800.
+
In-game, it looks very bulky and large with small thin wheels. All models are seen with different paint job conditions. While the Boxville in [[Vice City (3D Universe)|Vice City]] looks very generic, the [[San Andreas (3D Universe)|San Andreas]] version has a slightly curved roof and a smaller front fascia. All renditions differs from the paintjob and its condition, being the Vice City model with the most faded paint job at the bottom and the San Andreas model the most clean.

===HD Universe===
|<gallery width="auto" perrow="3" style="font-size:95%; padding:0;" widths="180">
+
Again, the body resembles the GMC Step Van, but is less bulkier than the previous generation, resulting in a light and versatile vehicle. It is still the heaviest delivery van in all the [[GTA]] games.

+
Boxville-GTASA-front.jpg|[[GTA San Andreas]] (<small>[[:Image:Boxville-GTASA-rear.jpg|Rear quarter view]]</small>).
+
The Boxville now includes a bit rounded bodywork, smaller frontage and a bigger front bumper, while the rear bumper is now a step-side 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.

+
In ''[[Grand Theft Auto IV]]'', there are clean variants and "vandalized" variants, which the later one features a graffiti over the lower section of the side panels. All variants are blank Boxville aren't operated by a specific company, as all of them are blanks in the city. After collecting all thirty cars for [[Stevie]], he agrees to purchase cars from [[Niko Bellic]], with the Boxville fetching $1,800.

+
  +
However, in ''[[Grand Theft Auto V]]'', there are no longer vandalized versions and now, several companies uses these vehicles. For example, variants of the Boxvilles used by [[Los Santos Department of Sanitation]] and [[Los Santos Department of Water & Power]] can be found at streets or near their respective facilities in GTA V. This variant features 4 strobe lights that can be activated, as well as several objects, such roof frames, piping and 2 stacks of cones at the front.
  +
  +
A Boxville with a unique [[Post OP]] livery was added in ''[[Grand Theft Auto Online]]'' through the [[Heists Update]]. It appears during the [[Pacific Standard - Vans]] heist setup mission, and is unlocked after its completion.

==Performance==
  +
===3D Universe===
  +
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{{Fact}}. 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.
  +
  +
The Boxville in ''GTA San Andreas'' has a [[Horns|horn]] nearly identical to the [[Mafia Sentinel]], [[Sentinel XS]] and the Vice City rendition of the [[Sabre]].
  +
  +
===''Grand Theft Auto IV''===
  +
The Boxville in ''GTA IV'' has poor performance in most areas. The vehicle itself is extremely heavy, negating its ability to accelerate and maintain a reasonable speed, let alone gather a high top speed. The vehicle has slow handling, however, due to the weight and sheer size, it is able to ram other vehicles, especially compact cars and sedans, off the road. The truck has reasonable brakes, but are still mediocre and often fail to stop the vehicle in reasonable time.
  +
  +
The vehicle is powered by what sounds like a low-revving, low power 6-cylinder engine, with a high displacement, however, the in-game engine model is a twin-cam turbocharged Inline-4, in a front engine, rear wheel drive configuration. The engine is coupled up to, evidently by sound, a low-geared 5 speed transmission.
  +
  +
The Boxville has a tendency to fall over in sharp turns. This is a "huge" flaw, since the vehicle is used as a getaway vehicle in some missions throughout the series.

===''Grand Theft Auto V''===
  +
[[File:Boxville-GTAV-RSCStats.png|thumb|Performance Stats on [[Rockstar Social Club]].]]
  +
The Boxville returns to GTA V mostly unchanged. The van returns with the exact same engine layout, albeit with more detail. The vehicle's performance specifications and overall speed remain unchanged, however, due to GTA V's new handling physics, the vehicle turns much quicker, with much better, stiffer suspension, which benefits in acceleration and braking rates, however, the vehicle is still extremely heavy and therefore outweighs the aforementioned benefits.
  +
  +
In the enhanced version, the engine sound is now changed. Instead of sharing the engine sound of the [[Mule]], it now occupies an engine sound similar to the [[Surfer]]. This changes its 6-cylinder-alike engine sound to a low-revving, low-power V8 engine.

===Burglary Boxville===
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'''".

GTA San Andreas features a specialized variant of the Boxville, referred officially as a Boxville, named internally in game files as a "'''<code>boxburg</code>'''" (a possible short form of "'''Box'''ville '''Burg'''lary"), and unofficially dubbed the "'''Boxville Black'''" or "'''Black Boxville'''". The 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 [[burglar]]y sub-missions that take place at night, and is prominently used in one [[Home Invasion|mission]] where [[Carl Johnson]] has to steal [[Colonel Fuhrberger]]'s weapons for [[Ryder]] before sunrise.

The Boxville is a multi-stop truck or walk-in delivery van featured in both 3D Universe and HD Universe. It's manufactured by Brute in the HD Universe.

DesignEdit

3D UniverseEdit

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, it looks very bulky and large with small thin wheels. All models are seen with different paint job conditions. While the Boxville in Vice City looks very generic, the San Andreas version has a slightly curved roof and a smaller front fascia. All renditions differs from the paintjob and its condition, being the Vice City model with the most faded paint job at the bottom and the San Andreas model the most clean.

HD UniverseEdit

Again, the body resembles the GMC Step Van, but is less bulkier than the previous generation, resulting in a light and versatile vehicle. It is still the heaviest delivery van in all the GTA games.

The Boxville now includes a bit rounded bodywork, smaller frontage and a bigger front bumper, while the rear bumper is now a step-side 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.

In Grand Theft Auto IV, there are clean variants and "vandalized" variants, which the later one features a graffiti over the lower section of the side panels. All variants are blank Boxville aren't operated by a specific company, as all of them are blanks in the city. After collecting all thirty cars for Stevie, he agrees to purchase cars from Niko Bellic, with the Boxville fetching $1,800.

However, in Grand Theft Auto V, there are no longer vandalized versions and now, several companies uses these vehicles. For example, variants of the Boxvilles used by Los Santos Department of Sanitation and Los Santos Department of Water & Power can be found at streets or near their respective facilities in GTA V. This variant features 4 strobe lights that can be activated, as well as several objects, such roof frames, piping and 2 stacks of cones at the front.

A Boxville with a unique Post OP livery was added in Grand Theft Auto Online through the Heists Update. It appears during the Pacific Standard - Vans heist setup mission, and is unlocked after its completion.

PerformanceEdit

3D UniverseEdit

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[citation/verification needed]. 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.

The Boxville in GTA San Andreas has a horn nearly identical to the Mafia Sentinel, Sentinel XS and the Vice City rendition of the Sabre.

Grand Theft Auto IVEdit

The Boxville in GTA IV has poor performance in most areas. The vehicle itself is extremely heavy, negating its ability to accelerate and maintain a reasonable speed, let alone gather a high top speed. The vehicle has slow handling, however, due to the weight and sheer size, it is able to ram other vehicles, especially compact cars and sedans, off the road. The truck has reasonable brakes, but are still mediocre and often fail to stop the vehicle in reasonable time.

The vehicle is powered by what sounds like a low-revving, low power 6-cylinder engine, with a high displacement, however, the in-game engine model is a twin-cam turbocharged Inline-4, in a front engine, rear wheel drive configuration. The engine is coupled up to, evidently by sound, a low-geared 5 speed transmission.

The Boxville has a tendency to fall over in sharp turns. This is a "huge" flaw, since the vehicle is used as a getaway vehicle in some missions throughout the series.

Boxville-GTAV-RSCStats

Performance Stats on Rockstar Social Club.

The Boxville returns to GTA V mostly unchanged. The van returns with the exact same engine layout, albeit with more detail. The vehicle's performance specifications and overall speed remain unchanged, however, due to GTA V's new handling physics, the vehicle turns much quicker, with much better, stiffer suspension, which benefits in acceleration and braking rates, however, the vehicle is still extremely heavy and therefore outweighs the aforementioned benefits.

In the enhanced version, the engine sound is now changed. Instead of sharing the engine sound of the Mule, it now occupies an engine sound similar to the Surfer. This changes its 6-cylinder-alike engine sound to a low-revving, low-power V8 engine.

VariantsEdit

Burglary BoxvilleEdit

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". The 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.
