A number of drivetrains are featured in Grand Theft Auto V. Compared to Grand Theft Auto IV, more drivetrain layouts are featured. GTA V sees the introduction of rear-engine, rear wheel drive vehicles in the HD era.
- Front-engine - Engine is placed on top or in front of the front wheels.
- Rear-engine - Engine is placed on top or behind rear wheels.
- Front-mid engine - Engine is placed behind front wheels, in front of cockpit.
- Rear-mid engine - Engine is placed in front of rear wheels, behind/partly within cockpit.
The layouts featured are as follows (vehicles for which the drivetrain is hard to deduce are not included);
- Comet - Appears with driveshaft connecting rear engine to front and rear wheels, however in-game testing and claimed data proves it is simply rear wheel drive.
- Cutter - Engine bay not visible, not enough power to reveal drivetrain.
- Dock Handler - Engine bay not visible, not enough power to reveal drivetrain.
- Dozer - Tracked vehicles do not have drivetrains.
- Rhino - Tracked vehicles do not have drivetrains.
- Guardian - (needs to be confirmed, either FR or F4)
- Transversely laid engines - Engine is laid across the car; sideways. Examples include:
- Longitudinally laid engines - Engine is laid down the car; longways. Examples include:
- Almost all cars in the game.
