===HD Universe===
The GTA IV rendition of the Landstalker bears close resemblance to the [[wp:Ford_Expedition#Third_generation_.282007.E2.80.932015.29|third generation Ford Expedition]], due to its overall shape (and because [[Dundreary]] is based off of Mercury). The grille however is most likely modeled after that of the Lincoln Navigator.

[[File:Landstalker_badges.png|thumb|189px|Badging on the Landstalker.]]The headlights resemble those of the 2006-present [[wp:Range Rover|Range Rover]] or Lincoln Navigator and the taillights appear to share similar traits of those on the 2006 Ford Explorer/Range Rover Sport. It also bears a resemblance to the Ford Flex 2008-, however, this is most likely coincidental, as the Ford Flex was released at almost the exact same time as [[Grand Theft Auto IV]].

A special black variant of the Landstalker can be seen driving around North Holland by [[North Holland Hustlers]] and Firefly Projects by [[M.O.B.]]. This variant features chrome side scuff bars, no luggage rails, and rear seat entertainment like used in the Lincoln Navigator as an option.
+
The Landstalker also appears in trailers 1 and 2 and Franklin's trailer for [[GTA V]] but has since had a face-lift (shown in [[Franklin]]'s trailer). The face-lifted model sports different rims and tires, a slimmer front bumper and improved performance. The roof racks are no longer standard in GTA V, but can be added at Los Santos Customs. It also features a front license plate.
   
Another variant of the Landstalker has a unique gold side scuffs and a lower front and rear bumper. This variant is possibly based on the Eddie Bauer trim, seen on several Fords, including the Explorer, Expedition and the 2004 F-150.
+
Similar to the [[Cavalcade]], the SUV features many luxury customization options in Los Santos Customs, including side steps (which also add TVs fitted into the headrests), roof-racks and bumper modifications.

===3D Universe===
The Landstalker was originally introduced with a light weight (1380 kg), a short wheelbase, high ground clearance, full time 4WD, poor grip, stiff suspension, a high center of gravity and unstable weight distribution. As a result, it is highly susceptible to rollovers while simply turning or traversing off-road especially on traintracks, if the player doesn't drive carefully or make use of the handbrake. These attributes made the vehicle vastly inferior as an off-road vehicle when compared to the [[Patriot]], [[Rancher]], [[Sandking]] and [[Huntley]]. Although its handling is poor, the Landstalker has all-round moderate-to-good acceleration and top speed due to its weight.

The [[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories]] rendition is noticeably more stable—its redesigned body features a lowered ground clearance (resulting in a slight redistribution of weight to the bottom) and a longer, heavier body (1880 kg), reducing the likelihood of rollovers. This is decidedly not the case with the version used in [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]] which has some of the poorest handling and highest likelihood of rollovers of any car in the GTA III universe, especially when attempting VCS' [[Robbery]] missions.

===HD Universe===
The GTA IV rendition of the Landstalker is quite heavy, resulting in poor acceleration and a top speed of 103 km/h (65 mph), and compared to other SUVs; braking is also adversely affected by the weight. The engine is a V6, paired to a 5 speed gearbox in a 50% Front, 50% Rear 4WD layout. The suspension is moderately firm, but still far too soft to corner at speed effectively. The body flops about in the turns, often causing the rear end to kick out and fishtail rather than simply overturn as in previous games. On the road, the Landstalker is nowhere near as competent as its closest competitors (the [[Cavalcade]] and [[Huntley Sport]]), but off-road the Landstalker begins to show its usefulness. The engine has enough torque to allow scaling of medium-grade hills, and the suspension evens out most of the natural bumps; unfortunately, the long rear overhang means the Landstalker can beach itself on rocks. Overall, its off-road performance is inferior to that of the Cavalcade, however it fares better than the Huntley Sport.

The GTA IV rendition of the Landstalker is quite heavy, resulting in poor acceleration and a top speed of 145km/h (75mph) {{Fact}}, and compared to other SUVs; braking is also adversely affected by the weight. The engine is a large displacement V8, paired to a 5 speed gearbox in a 50% Front, 50% Rear 4WD layout. The suspension is moderately firm, but still far too soft to corner at speed effectively. The body flops about in the turns, often causing the rear end to kick out and fishtail rather than simply overturn as in previous games.

Overall, its off-road performance is inferior to that of the Cavalcade, however it fares better than the Huntley Sport.
 
The Landstalker has a unique ABS system as standard equipment. The ABS will only work if braking in a straight line. If braking while turning, the wheels will lock, but will unlock after the it straightens out.
 
   
 
Deformation in frontal accidents is very good, having able to retain both headlights after hitting a low car. Rear accidents though cause quite a bit of visible damage. The engine itself is sturdy in accidents, allowing the Landstalker to take multiple direct hits at full speed before failing. Overall, this vehicle is better suited for short drives and off-road expeditions than high-speed pursuits.

====GTA IV Overview====
  +
{{GTA IV Vehicle Stats}}
   
The Landstalker can be modified at [[TransFenders]].
+
In [[GTA V]], the Landstalker has a diesel engine which produces the same sound as the [[Cavalcade]]'s. The Landstalker has a lower-end performance line in GTA V, compared to its previous appearances, and since the larger variety of newly introduced vehicles, it now becomes one of the slowest SUVs in the game.

==Trivia==
+
*An Epsilon Landstalker can be seen in the mission [[Unknowing the Truth]], escorting the player's [[Tailgater]] to the drop-off point. The player can easily obtain it by betraying and killing the Epsilon members in the same mission. It only differs by its unique baby blue color, like any Epsilon vehicle.
* After finding all thirty [[Stevie's Car Thefts|cars]] for [[Stevie]] in GTA IV, a Landstalker can be sold at his garage for $3,000.
+
* The Landstalker plays the following radio stations by default when entered:

*When in reverse in the Landstalker, the front badge glows due to a glitch.
+
*The name "Landstalker" could be a play on the name Land Rover, a similar real-life SUV brand, or a reference to the [[Grand Theft Auto 2|GTA 2]] vehicle, the [[Land Roamer]]. Roving, roaming, and stalking are considered to have similar meanings.

"The Landstalker is a full-size luxury SUV driven by people you assume must be drug dealers or trophy wives, because that's easier than dealing with the very real possibility that they might just be more attractive and successful than you are."
Southernsanandreassuperautos.com description.

The Landstalker is a four-door SUV available in every GTA game since Grand Theft Auto III, excluding Grand Theft Auto Advance and Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars. It is manufactured by Dundreary in the HD Universe.

Design Edit

3D UniverseEdit

The Landstalker has many different designs between GTA III and GTA Vice City Stories, usually combined from a variety of sources.

HD UniverseEdit

The GTA IV rendition of the Landstalker bears close resemblance to the Third generation Ford Expedition, due to its overall shape. The grille and front fascia, however, is most likely modeled after that of the first generation Lincoln Navigator. The headlights resemble those of the 2006–present Range Rover or Lincoln Navigator and the taillights appear to share similar traits of those on the 2006 Ford Explorer/Range Rover Sport. It also bears a resemblance to the 2008 Ford Flex, however, this is most likely coincidental, as the Ford Flex was released at almost exactly the same time as Grand Theft Auto IV.

The Landstalker also appears in trailers 1 and 2 and Franklin's trailer for GTA V but has since had a face-lift (shown in Franklin's trailer). The face-lifted model sports different rims and tires, a slimmer front bumper and improved performance. The roof racks are no longer standard in GTA V, but can be added at Los Santos Customs. It also features a front license plate.

Similar to the Cavalcade, the SUV features many luxury customization options in Los Santos Customs, including side steps (which also add TVs fitted into the headrests), roof-racks and bumper modifications.

Performance Edit

3D UniverseEdit

The Landstalker was originally introduced with a light weight (1380kg), a short wheelbase, high ground clearance, full-time 4WD, poor grip, stiff suspension, a high center of gravity and unstable weight distribution. As a result, it is highly susceptible to rollovers while simply turning or traversing off-road especially on traintracks, if the player doesn't drive carefully or make use of the handbrake. These attributes made the vehicle vastly inferior as an off-road vehicle when compared to the Patriot, Rancher, Sandking and Huntley. Although its handling is poor, the Landstalker has all-round moderate-to-good acceleration and top speed due to its weight.

The Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories rendition is noticeably more stable—its redesigned body features a lowered ground clearance (resulting in a slight redistribution of weight to the bottom) and a longer, heavier body (1880 kg), reducing the likelihood of rollovers. This is decidedly not the case with the version used in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories which has some of the poorest handling and highest likelihood of rollovers of any car in the GTA III universe, especially when attempting VCS' Robbery missions.

HD UniverseEdit

The GTA IV rendition of the Landstalker is quite heavy, resulting in poor acceleration and a top speed of 145km/h (75mph) [citation/verification needed], and compared to other SUVs; braking is also adversely affected by the weight. The engine is a large displacement V8, paired to a 5 speed gearbox in a 50% Front, 50% Rear 4WD layout. The suspension is moderately firm, but still far too soft to corner at speed effectively. The body flops about in the turns, often causing the rear end to kick out and fishtail rather than simply overturn as in previous games. On the road, the Landstalker is nowhere near as competent as its closest competitors (the Cavalcade and Huntley Sport), but off-road the Landstalker begins to show its usefulness. The engine has enough torque to allow scaling of medium-grade hills, and the suspension evens out most of the natural bumps; unfortunately, the long rear overhang means the Landstalker can beach itself on rocks. Overall, its off-road performance is inferior to that of the Cavalcade, however it fares better than the Huntley Sport.

Deformation in frontal accidents is very good, having able to retain both headlights after hitting a low car. Rear accidents though cause quite a bit of visible damage. The engine itself is sturdy in accidents, allowing the Landstalker to take multiple direct hits at full speed before failing. Overall, this vehicle is better suited for short drives and off-road expeditions than high-speed pursuits.

In GTA V, the Landstalker has a diesel engine which produces the same sound as the Cavalcade's. The Landstalker has a lower-end performance line in GTA V, compared to its previous appearances, and since the larger variety of newly introduced vehicles, it now becomes one of the slowest SUVs in the game.

VariantsEdit

  • A special black variant of the Landstalker can be seen driving around North Holland by North Holland Hustlers and Firefly Projects by M.O.B.. This variant features chrome side scuff bars, no luggage rails, and rear seat entertainment like used in the Lincoln Navigator as an option.
  • An Epsilon Landstalker can be seen in the mission Unknowing the Truth, escorting the player's Tailgater to the drop-off point. The player can easily obtain it by betraying and killing the Epsilon members in the same mission. It only differs by its unique baby blue color, like any Epsilon vehicle.
