The Dubsta features classic European styling and features many elements that bear strong resemblance to a Mercedes G-Class 463 (more precisely, a G 65 AMG, as the car has a V12 engine). The overall styling is very square, putting emphasis on its off-road purpose in favor of appearance.
At the base of the front, a large plastic front bumper, spanning the entire width is visible. Above this bumper, a main, chrome-trimmed central grille is positioned on an elevated area of the front. There are rectangular turn indicator lamp units either side of the grille, whose lower edge is in line with the bottom of the vent for the grille. Above the turn indicators, the main headlamp units are larger and also rectangular. The headlamp units have upper edges that are in line with the top of the main grille. The front quarter areas are almost entirely covered by very wide wheel arch flaring, adding to the muscular appearance of the vehicle. The bonnet/ hood features an elevated area similar to both vehicles that it is based on. The windscreen also begins at a height higher than the base of the A pillar, like both of its inspirations.
The sides continue the utilitarian and rugged theme, featuring straight lines for the main body line and edges for greenhouse windows. The line that separates the side of the body from the roof is also completely straight. At the base of the A pillars, the car features what appear to be large, plastic rear-view mirrors. The rear wheel arches are similar in appearance to the front, but are less elevated from the body.
The Dubsta features very high ground clearance, such that its axles and differential can be viewed from a slightly high angle. The SUV features a High Displacement Engine, presumably a V12 engine based on the badge on the back, but sounds more like a V8. This is sent through a permanent four wheel drive system, and then finally through large, high-profile tyres to the ground.

- Dubsta may be a combination of the 2 words "DUB" and "Gangsta". This may also be a reference to the rap/hiphop scene in which customized SUV"s can sometimes be found.
- More off-road type modifications are available to it that other SUVs. These include bullbars, winch, spot lights, roof basket, and hood and trunk mounted spare wheels, among others.
- In Grand Theft Auto Online the Dubsta sells for $7,000 at Los Santos Customs.
