The MTL Pounder is a large box truck in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.


The vehicle's main cabin and chassis design is similar to that of the real life International Harvester, and draws some inspirations from other Mack trucks.

The cab looks almost identical to the Mack CH613 with some similarities to the International 9000.

In-game, it is the box truck variant of the Packer and the Flatbed, fitted with the box intended to delivery certain goods. The rear features large metallic doors, with the rear stepside.

The vehicle's size and heavy weight leave it slightly inferior in terms of handling, but its top speed and acceleration are very impressive for a truck of this size. Its turning radius is quite big due to its long wheelbase, however its heavy weight makes it very useful for ramming other cars off the road, and it is a very durable vehicle.

  • The name is a poke on the fact that the truck is able to ram smaller vehicles into walls, seriously damaging, or "pounding" them, and also on its weight and size.
    • The name might also be a sexual reference to "pounding" which refers to rough sexual intercourse.
  • The horn was altered for the enhanced version of the game, it is now has several new horns, the horn picked is randomized (PS4/XB1).
  • Strangely, the engine model for the Pounder appears to use 8 spark plugs, suggesting it is a petrol engine, untypical for a vehicle of this kind. It also suggests the engine can only be a petrol single-cam V8.
