Canis is an American automobile manufacturer in the HD Universe of the Grand Theft Auto series.


Canis is parody of American car manufacturer Jeep, but there is one vehicle that is not based on any Jeep model, which is the Kalahari. Instead, it is based on Citroën design. The company has a full line up of SUVs, off road vehicles, and pickup trucks from yesteryear. The name, Canis, is most likely a reference to the constellation Canis Major and the genus of dog family. The brands name may also be a reference to the red hypergiant VY Canis Majoris, which is one of the largest stars in the known universe. The proof of theory behind Canis is the brand's logo, which appears to be a star.

  • The beta name for the Canis manufacturer was possibly Bordeaux. This is evidenced by police chatter, which may occasionally refer to the Canis Bodhi as a Bordeaux Bodhi, although it's possible that Bordeaux was originally a different, unrelated brand.
  • Canis is also the Latin word for "dog".
