The [[Vapid]] '''Minivan''' is a four-door minivan in [[Grand Theft Auto IV]] and [[Grand Theft Auto V]]. It replaces its previous counterpart, the [[Blista]], featured in [[Grand Theft Auto III]] and [[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories]]. After collecting all thirty cars for [[Stevie]] he agrees to purchase cars from [[Niko Bellic]], with the Minivan fetching [[Money|$]]2,000 in perfect condition.

The Minivan is badged as both a [[Vapid]] vehicle and, in the case of the Cabby, a [[Schyster]] one, it may also suggest a partnership between Vapid and Schyster, although [[Schyster]] is most likely partnered with [[Bravado]] like Chrysler and Dodge in reality. It may suggest a larger mother company like [[wikipedia:General Motors|General Motors]] which produces the same vehicles under different brands. Alternatively, the Cabby's "Limited Vapid Design" badging suggests that the Cabby could be manufactured under licence by Schyster, or could be a rebadge of the Vapid Minivan.[[File:Minivan-GTAV-trailer-damaged-back.png|thumb|A Minivan in GTA V's second trailer after being hit by a [[Cheetah]].]]

Under the bonnet of the Minivan lies a reasonably torqueful 24-valve V6 engine. Though the output of this smooth-yet-potent engine is far from meagre, the sheer weight and aerodynamic properties of the Minivan results in a double-figures 0-60mph time and a lowly 125mph (201km/h) maximum. The firmness of the suspension and the rather low ride height give the Minivan ample support and stability when cornering, though understeer is often noticeable. Braking is good, and the ABS works well on all models. In the event of a crash, the bodywork tends to stay very well in tact, although driver safety isn't exactly class-leading in high-speed accidents. Pedestrian safety is not great; the shape of the car suggests that if involved in a crash with a pedestrian, there is a high risk of being pulled under the wheels and being crushed to death.

The Minivan is powered by what sounds to be a reasonable flat-plane Inline-6 engine, supported by the claimed "24v", assuming the engine is 24 valves per cylinder, meaning it could only logically be an Inline or V6. However the cover is similar to a typical covered V8 engine.
  +
  +
The Minivan in GTA IV has reasonably good suspension and impressive braking. The Minivan has a surprisingly high top speed thanks to the flat-plane engine, however, the time at which it takes to reach such speeds is let down due to its weight. The car also has limited traction, meaning setting off, particularly on grass, or on a steep gradient, can be near impossible if the throttle is pressed down in a sudden instance or too much-too soon.
  +
  +
The car's all wheel drive layout still helps it off-road and on-road, allowing it to gain some control after an incident; enough to allow movement or recovery, however, the traction from the wheels doesn't work in harmony with the all wheel drive, which can be considered a let down for the vehicle.
  +
  +
All in all, the vehicle isn't a recommended pick for any excessive use, such as pursuits, but it a reasonable car for getting from one place to another in no rush.

===''Grand Theft Auto V''===
  +
The Minivan in GTA V assumes the same engine model, cover, and sound as the Minivan in GTA IV, indication no initial engine changes have been made during the cross-over. The engine is what sounds to be the same Inline-6 engine. Although the engine and the AWD drivetrain works hard to propel the minivan off the line, its sluggish 4 speed automatic transmission combined with the minivan's immense weight severely limits overall performance, not making the Minivan an ideal getaway vehicle, especially under hot pursuit. Though the output of this smooth-yet-potent engine is far from optimal, the sheer weight and aerodynamic properties of the Minivan results in low speeds. The firmness of the suspension, its AWD drivetrain and the rather low ride height give the Minivan ample support and stability when cornering, though under-steer is often noticeable. Braking is good, and ABS is standard on all models.
  +
  +
In the event of a crash, the bodywork tends to stay very well intact, although driver safety isn't exactly class-leading in high-speed accidents. Although it was never intended for this purpose, if the player ever find himself off-roading in a Minivan, whether taking a shortcut or trying to escape from attackers, be wary of steep hills and uneven ground. While the minivan lacks the necessary power for excessive spinouts, it doesn't provide enough torque evenly to its rear tires to avoid getting stuck on even rather shallow hills or get over small obstacles.

The Vapid Minivan is a four-door minivan in Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto V. It replaces its previous counterpart, the Blista, featured in Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, although it returns in Grand Theft Auto V as a hatchback, instead of a minivan.

DesignEdit

The Minivan is modeled after the fourth generation Dodge Caravan, although its lower ground clearance and sleeker design make it look more regal. Its grill is modeled after that of the fourth generation Chrysler Voyager US model. The rear of the Minivan resembles that of the 1999-2003 Ford Windstar, although the tail lights have rear fog lights added and smaller turn signal portions. It can be found with a roof spoiler or luggage rails (although both cases feature a "Minivan Sport" badge on the rear liftgate). The Minivan is the basis for the GTA IV Cabby, which has its own "Minivan Cabby" lift-gate badge. The van may come with a roof-mounted luggage rack or a rear spoiler.

The Minivan has regular second-row doors (as opposed to sliding doors), such as on the first-generation Mazda MPV and Honda Odyssey minivans.

The Minivan is badged as both a Vapid vehicle and, in the case of the Cabby, a Schyster one, it may also suggest a partnership between Vapid and Schyster, although Schyster is most likely partnered with Bravado like Chrysler and Dodge in reality. It may suggest a larger mother company like General Motors or Fiat (which also owns the Chrysler Group, including the Dodge brand) which produces the same vehicles under different brands. Alternatively, the Cabby's "Limited Vapid Design" badging suggests that the Cabby could be manufactured under licence by Schyster, or could be a rebadge of the Vapid Minivan.

Grand Theft Auto IVEdit

The Minivan is powered by what sounds to be a reasonable flat-plane Inline-6 engine, supported by the claimed "24v", assuming the engine is 24 valves per cylinder, meaning it could only logically be an Inline or V6. However the cover is similar to a typical covered V8 engine.

The Minivan in GTA IV has reasonably good suspension and impressive braking. The Minivan has a surprisingly high top speed thanks to the flat-plane engine, however, the time at which it takes to reach such speeds is let down due to its weight. The car also has limited traction, meaning setting off, particularly on grass, or on a steep gradient, can be near impossible if the throttle is pressed down in a sudden instance or too much-too soon.

All in all, the vehicle isn't a recommended pick for any excessive use, such as pursuits, but it a reasonable car for getting from one place to another in no rush.

Grand Theft Auto VEdit

The Minivan in GTA V assumes the same engine model, cover, and sound as the Minivan in GTA IV, indication no initial engine changes have been made during the cross-over. The engine is what sounds to be the same Inline-6 engine. Although the engine and the AWD drivetrain works hard to propel the minivan off the line, its sluggish 4 speed automatic transmission combined with the minivan's immense weight severely limits overall performance, not making the Minivan an ideal getaway vehicle, especially under hot pursuit.

TriviaEdit

  • The default radio stations of the Minivan are:
  • The GTA IV Minivan is equipped with a GPS system with a male voice, but only if the player leaves the "selected cars" (default) option in the audio menu.
  • After collecting all thirty cars for Stevie he agrees to purchase cars from Niko Bellic, with the Minivan fetching $2,000 in perfect condition.
  • Vehicles similar in appearance to extended versions of the Minivan appear in Rockstar San Diego's Midnight Club: Los Angeles.
  • The "Vapid Designed" badge located near both rear wheel wells is misspelled as "Vapid Desgined". This error is also seen on the Cabby.
  • In GTA V, the Minivan has a texture and badging error on the passenger side showing a mirrored "Minivan" badge. The same error is present on the Turismo R.
