"You won't worry about trashing this all-terrain pick-up truck - it's pretty much trashed already. At this price, just be grateful that the brakes work."
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Karin Rusty Rebel is a two-door beater pickup truck featured in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.


Grand Theft Auto V

The Karin Rusty Rebel, as suggested by the name, is essentially a rusted variant of the standard Rebel. While numerous sources, such as the Southern San Andreas Super Autos website, simply name the Rusty Rebel "Rebel", the GTX name (name when entered) names it "Rusty Rebel".

The vehicle appears in numerous base colors, however all have rusty spots, patches and damage across the bodywork. This rusted texture cannot be removed, instead the player must buy or find the standard Rebel. The interior is also very beater condition. Torn dash material can be found, along with stains across the interior, and dirty door paneling, seats and the steering wheel. One of the unique properties for this version of the Rebel is that it has a much wider range of customization options than the Standard version, with a rally or off-road racing theme. These modification include assorted bullbars, extended wheel arches, and a variety of bed options including covers and roll bars. It is even possible to install a reinforced spaceframe that replaces remove most of the vehicle's bodywork and includes rallying equipment such as spare tires, tool kits and additional fog lights. With the space frame installed the Rebel's quarter panels, bed floor and sides and tail lights are all removed, leaving only the cab and front end (reinforced with additional framework) intact.

Grand Theft Auto V

In essence, the performance remains the same as the regular Rebel, being a nimble, fast vehicle with a small engine. On the downside, the vehicle is still weak.

Unlike the regular Rebel, the Rusty Rebel has a petrol engine sound, unlike the diesel one found in its clean counterpart. The engine sound is much smoother and valve/injection timing is more consistent.

Cultural References

  • The name Rebel could be a reference to the Toyota Hilux's infamous use as both a transport and an improvised armed fighting vehicle (colloquially known as a technical) by numerous rebel/insurgent forces around the world. Notable examples of this include the "Toyota War" that occurred on the border between Chad and Libya in 1987, during which Chadian troops fitted Toyota pickup trucks with mounted weapons, or the Battle of Mogadishu in Somalia (famously dramatized as the novel and film Black Hawk Down).
  • There is a car in real life named the Rebel made by Rambler/AMC, it was a muscle car in production from 1957 to 1970 with five generations.
  • The 2008 film Rambo features a tribe called the Karen Rebels; the manufacturer and the name of the truck in GTA V is possibly a reference.
  • The default radio station of the Rebel is Channel X.
  • The default appearance of the Rebel could be a possible reference to Marty McFly's 1985 Toyota Hilux from the Back to the Future franchise.

Grand Theft Auto V

  • The truck may appear with the text "4x4 REBEL", towards the rear of the sides of the load bed, although it is often glitched, causing it to disappear and reappear constantly.
  • The Rebel doesn't have a rear bumper, and thus does not have a rear licence plate.
  • The beater version of the Rebel can be customized into a full baja truck in Los Santos Customs.
  • The Rebel does not have reversing lights.

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • When opening the tailgate via interaction menu in GTA Online, the tailgate simply breaks off the rest of the truck.
  • The Rebel is the cheapest four-wheel vehicle that can be purchased in GTA Online, as it can be bought for $3,000 through Southern San Andreas Super Autos.
  • As of the I'm Not a Hipster Update update, both clean and beater variants of the Rebel are available for purchase at Southern San Andreas Super Autos.
