The Picador is implied to be a pickup variant of the [[Buccaneer]], which shares a similar frontal design, with the exception of a different headlight design, a thinner front bumper, and an additional emblem on the hood. The Picador is based on the [[wp:Chevrolet El Camino#1968-1972|1971 or 1972 Chevrolet El Camino]], which happens to share similar design cues with the [[wp:Chevrolet Monte Carlo#First generation|1970-1972 Chevrolet Monte Carlo]], a car which the Buccaneer shares a likeness to. Picadors may occasionally been depicted with different items on its bed, such as planks or [[Sprunk]] cans.

In GTA V the Picador is manufactured by Cheval, a parody of Holden and Chevrolet. In the game the Picador resembles a mid-1970's  Holden HJ Kingswood Utility which was not sold in the [[United States of America|United States]], however Holden, like Chevrolet, is a General Motors subsidiary.
+
In GTA V, the Picador is manufactured by [[Cheval]], a parody of Australian automaker [[wp:Holden|Holden]], a sister company of General Motors. In the game, the Picador takes design cues from both the [[wikipedia:Holden_HJ|Holden HJ Utility]] and the [[wp:Chevrolet El Camino|1971-1972 Chevrolet El Camino]]. Both the rear fascia and grille are almost identical to that of the El Camino, while retaining the large, shallow cab and square mirrors seen on the Holden. The front end is a bit murkier, with references to the [[wp:Chevrolet_El_Camino#Second generation (1964-1967)|older, second generation El Camino]] in the headlight and grille assembly.

The Picador has the highest top speed and acceleration for any pickup in the game possibly due to a large V8 engine. However, it is also the lightest and lacks the torque of the stronger trucks; its cornering is also a little unstable, owing to its rear wheel drive. As it is a pickup, the Picador can only carry two in the truck cab.

The Picador is powered by a large displacement V8 and it shares its engine sound with the [[Sabre Turbo]], [[Fugitive]] and [[Gauntlet]]. Its speed and acceleration is good in comparison to most street cars, especially when upgraded, but it is heavily outclassed by other muscle cars. Its handling is at odds with more conventional muscle cars, since its four wheel drive gives it excellent traction and launch speed. This combined with its soft suspension makes the Picador one of the best muscle cars for offroading, though one must be wary of body roll. Crash deformation is poor, and bullet resistance is only average.

* Parked at Ryder's house in [[Ganton]], Los Santos.
 
* Rarely found in [[San Fierro]].

* The Spanish name [[wp:Picador|Picador]] is a horse-mounted member of a bullfighting crew, which confronts the bull with his pike ("pica", hence the name) during the first third of each bull. Additionally, "Picador" in Spanish may also refer to a vehicle or a person that takes part in "picadas" (slang for drag racing commonly used on Latin America). This makes sense, as the Picador is a muscle car.

* "Pica" is a Brazilian slang for penis.

** "Dor" is also Portuguese for ache.

  +
* The default radio stations for the Picador are:

*There is a glitch with Ryder's Picador on the mobile version of GTA: San Andreas. After completion of the mission [[Robbing Uncle Sam]], Ryder's Picador will no longer spawn.

  +
*In [[Grand Theft Auto V|GTA V]], the Picador's brake lights are located separately from its taillights, found on the rear bumper. Additionally, it does not feature reverse lights.
  +
*Oddly, when the headlights are turned on, bright light only comes from two of the four headlights.
  +
*Strangely, the interior has a [[Vapid]] logo on the floor of the Picador. This is most likely due to Rockstar's tendency to re-use vehicle interiors.

"1960's entry in a long, esteemed line of Cheval coupé utility vehicles. Combining all the style of a two-door hardtop with the practicality of an integrated cargo tray, this most certainly isn't a jack of all trades and a master of none."
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Picador is a coupé utility featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online. It is manufactured by Cheval in GTA V.

DesignEdit

Grand Theft Auto: San AndreasEdit

The Picador is implied to be a ute variant of the Buccaneer, which shares a similar frontal design, with the exception of a different taillight design, a thinner front bumper, and an additional emblem on the hood. The Picador is based on the 1972 Chevrolet El Camino, which happens to share similar design cues with the 1970-1972 Chevrolet Monte Carlo, a car which the Buccaneer shares a likeness to.

Picadors may occasionally been depicted with different items on its bed, such as planks or Sprunk cans.

Grand Theft Auto VEdit

In GTA V, the Picador is manufactured by Cheval, a parody of Australian automaker Holden, a sister company of General Motors. In the game, the Picador takes design cues from both the Holden HJ Utility and the 1971-1972 Chevrolet El Camino. Both the rear fascia and grille are almost identical to that of the El Camino, while retaining the large, shallow cab and square mirrors seen on the Holden. The front end is a bit murkier, with references to the older, second generation El Camino in the headlight and grille assembly.

In the PlayStation 4Xbox One, and PC versions of the game, there is a monster truck variant of the Picador named the Marshall

PerformanceEdit

Grand Theft Auto: San AndreasEdit

The Picador has the highest top speed and acceleration for any pickup in the game, possibly due to the large V8 engine. However, it is also the lightest and lacks the torque of the stronger trucks; its cornering is also a little unstable, owing to its rear wheel drive. As it is a pickup, the Picador can only carry two in the truck cab.

Grand Theft Auto VEdit

The Picador is powered by a large displacement V8 and it shares its engine sound with the Sabre Turbo, Fugitive and Gauntlet. Its speed and acceleration is good in comparison to most street cars, especially when upgraded, but it is heavily outclassed by other muscle cars. Its handling is at odds with more conventional muscle cars, since its four wheel drive gives it excellent traction and launch speed. This combined with its soft suspension makes the Picador one of the best muscle cars for offroading, though one must be wary of body roll. Crash deformation is poor, and bullet resistance is only average.

TriviaEdit

General Edit

  • The Spanish name Picador is a horse-mounted member of a bullfighting crew, which confronts the bull with his pike ("pica", hence the name) during the first third of each bull. Additionally, "Picador" in Spanish may also refer to a vehicle or a person that takes part in "picadas" (slang for drag racing commonly used on Latin America). This makes sense, as the Picador is a muscle car.
  • "Pica" is a Brazilian slang for penis.
    • "Dor" is also Portuguese for ache.

Grand Theft Auto: San AndreasEdit

Grand Theft Auto VEdit

  • In GTA V, the Picador's brake lights are located separately from its taillights, found on the rear bumper. Additionally, it does not feature reverse lights.
  • Oddly, when the headlights are turned on, bright light only comes from two of the four headlights.
  • Strangely, the interior has a Vapid logo on the floor of the Picador. This is most likely due to Rockstar's tendency to re-use vehicle interiors.
