The Bravado Rumpo is a van featured in the following games.



The Rumpo is an average-sized van capable of carrying four passengers (two in the front, two in the back). It is common and can be found in most areas in the cities in which it appears, but like all vans, it tends to be most common in industrial areas. It also has 2 small windows at the very rear of the vehicle. In GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories, the van appears to be based on a first generation Dodge Ram Van with the side paneling of a Ford Van. A modified version of this van is used by the Southside Hoods gang.

From Grand Theft Auto: Vice City onwards, the Rumpo is very different, taking on the design originally sported by the Pony (see 'Naming confusion' section below). Rumpos typically sport a variety of company logos (eg. Final Build Construction). These Rumpos appear to resemble first-generation Fiat Ducatos.

The Grand Theft Auto V Rumpo design comes from the 2003-present GMC Savana. The rear and parts of the front are very similar to the second generation Chevrolet Express.


When originally introduced in GTA III, the Rumpo is fairly fast, but with average handling and a tendency to two-wheel and tip over under rough cornering.

The redesigned Rumpo in GTA Vice City, GTA San Andreas and GTA Vice City Stories handles much like the smaller Pony, but is slightly slower and heavier (weighting at 1700 kg, 100 kg less than the GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories renditions). Also, because of its height and stiff suspension it has a nasty tendency to jolt around and even tip on bumpy roads.

Despite its weight, the Rumpo is not particularly good for ramming, so all of these factors combine to make the Rumpo a vehicle to avoid. Until GTA V, where it is rear-wheel drive, the Rumpo has been either front- or four-wheel drive.

Unique colors

Black Rumpo


The black Rumpo obtainable during "Under Surveillance".

In GTA III, a unique all-black Rumpo (with black trims) appears during the "Under Surveillance" as a vehicle occupied by two targets which the player must kill. To acquire the van, the player must open fire at the vehicle at close range using a gun, forcing the occupants to exit the vehicle; if shot from a distance, the driver may use the van as a weapon to run over the player, making the act of retrieving the van more difficult. Once the targets are killed, the player may take control of the vehicle and save it in a garage after the mission is complete.

Red Rumpo

In GTA Liberty City Stories, a unique all-red Rumpo, with red bumpers, appears during the mission "Bringing the House Down" as the van carrying explosives to be placed on the old subway tracks that runs under Fort Staunton. To acquire the van, simply complete the mission in the van. As long as you were in the van as you get out of the subway, you should be in it.


Naming confusion

There is some confusion regarding the names and designs of the Rumpo, the Burrito and the Pony throughout the 3D Universe.

In GTA III, the Rumpo chiefly resembles a Dodge Ram Van; in subsequent games, however, the Ram Van-derived vehicle is named Burrito. In GTA III, the Pony is a large van with an elevated roof; in GTA Vice City and GTA San Andreas, the Rumpo inherited this design, and the Pony was given a new one.


  • The GTA Vice City, GTA San Andreas, and GTA Vice City Stories renditions of the Rumpo feature a cosmetic glitch in which any Rumpo using a Pay 'n' Spray will emerge with its front bumper facing in the opposite direction, towards the rear. The problem can be remedied simply by parking the vehicle in a garage, leaving the garage so that its door shuts, then returning. This glitch is also present in GTA Vice City's Pony. The problem appears also if the player activates the vehicle repair cheat.
  • The Rumpo, along with Burrito and Speedo, are the fastest vans throughout the series.
  • The Rumpo plays the following radio stations when entered:
  • Rumpo is Latin for "I burst". It is also the name of a village in Estonia, as well as a slang term for sex.
  • An unused Algonquin Triads drug burrito in GTA: Chinatown Wars has a tall roof just like that of the Rumpo.
  • In Midnight Club 3 DUB Edition, the 11th race of the Big Playas in the 2nd laps a white Rumpo is seen.
  • In GTA IV there's a Rumpo wreck, suggesting that the Rumpo was in the Beta.
  • If the player enters a Los Santos Customs garage with the Rumpo, it's name will appear as Grotti Rumpo, although the Rumpo is made by Bravado.
  • The modification options for the Rumpo are extremely limited in GTA Online, as its only options are the loss/theft prevention and explosives, making it an undesirable vehicle to keep.
  • Interestingly, along with the Paradise, it is the only Bravado to date that is not based on any Dodge vehicle, neither having any resemblance to existing Dodge models.

  • The Deludamol vans Trevor's mother requests him to steal are Rumpos. These can be found parked outside hospitals or medical centers.
