"The Rocoto won't win any races, but it makes up for it with luxuries that soothe the soul of upper middle class middle-aged angst."
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Obey Rocoto is a four-door mid-size luxury crossover SUV featured in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.


Grand Theft Auto V

The Rocoto is a luxury crossover SUV which inherits the role previously slotted by the Ubermacht Rebla in Grand Theft Auto IV (as the Rebla is absent in GTA V ). The car's design appears to be inspired by the German styling of both the first and second generation of the Porsche Cayenne, with a size similar to the Audi Q5 and Porsche Macan. The headlights and taillights are found from those of a second generation Volkswagen Touareg, but the number of taillights on the car seem to draw inspiration from the Mitsubishi Montero/Pajero/Shogun.

Grand Theft Auto V

The Rocoto is a good alternative to the more popular SUVs in the game, the Dubsta and the Baller (2013). It has a great balance between off-road and on-road performance. Like its real life counterparts, it has a powerful engine with high-speed transmission, it also features an AWD layout, which maximizes the potential for the vehicles terrain visits.

Compared to similar SUVs, such as the Baller, the ride is stiffer hence more responsive and can reach a higher top speed. On the other hand, acceleration is somewhat average and its braking is among the worst in its class. If you are looking for a sporty and uncommon SUV, this is a great option. On the downside, the ability to resist damage is poor, as after a few hard-on collisions, it's somewhat common for one of the front wheels to camber and jam into the fenders.

Special Variants

An unique dark red Rocoto can be found in the random event Car Robbery 2. Just recover the car from the carjacker and take the car away instead of returning it to the owner. It features Xenon lights, Deluxe wheels with bulletproof tires and 80% engine armor & brake upgrades. This is a good vehicle to acquire when the player needs a 4-door vehicle capable of speed and off-road usability, as well as a low-cost asset. However, if the player steals the car, the owner will be unable to send Michael a special outfit at a later time. A method for retaining the car as well as acquiring the outfit is to return the car, and as soon as the random event ends, steal it back. As the event has finished, the owner is considered a pedestrian and will act like one.
