The Newsvan is, as implied, a news van in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

Design

The Newsvan is designed as a news van for SAN News, with a satellite dish on the roof, and its rear compartment containing crudely rendered broadcasting equipment as well as a chair.

The overall appearance of the van comes from a Burrito, but is longer, has a side door, and a slightly different side design and front design. As a result of being a vehicle owned by a news agency, the Newsvan is prominently white with a blue stripe on the middle, with the "SAN News" logos on it.

Unlike the TV Van from Grand Theft Auto 2, it has no special function in the game (despite having a satellite dish), nor being used outside special circumstances.

Performance

The performance of the Newsvan is moderate-to-excellent, with a moderate acceleration with good torque, a good top speed, good hill climbing capabilities, and good durability. Due to its height, however, it has a tendency to flip if driven over rough terrains. The Newsvan's braking is very good.

Special Variants

  • In the mission Cut Throat Business, there is a chance to get a Newsvan with a unique white color, which is also indestructible unless saved (it will lose property) - the player can fail the mission by either killing Madd Dogg before the cutscene begins which initiates the chase with OG Loc, or failing to chase OG Loc. Players can then gain access to the Newsvan which remains parked in the same location.

Trivia

  • The default radio station in the Newsvan is WCTR.
  • In the beta release, Newsvans were to report on a crime a couple minutes after it was committed (i.e. murder or robbery).
  • Newsvans are driven by random NPC characters, not specific anchors or station personnel.
  • Despite having a door on its right side, there is no outline around it, making it just a handle and a window.
  • In some versions of the game, the Newsvan will appear with VCN logos, due to a glitch.
