The Sandking seems to be mechanically related to the [[Rancher]], and shares its off-road credibility. Its acceleration is above par and is an improvement on the rather quick Rancher. The suspension is stiffer than the Rancher, sacrificing some of the ride, but it still has enough travel to go over rocks and other obstructions without rolling over easily. It does have a high center of gravity, which makes it prone to tipping over at high speeds, however. Its handling is a big improvement over the Rancher but the suspension is still pretty soft so it rolls and pitches respectively; but it's still very impressive for a vehicle at this size and height. In ''GTA San Andreas'', it is sometimes available with hydraulics common in lowriders to further improve its off-roading capabilities. It fares well on road but it isn't the best due to its soft suspension and height but is still competitive. Like the Rancher, it only seats two. Some renditions have the same engine sound as its [[Cartel Cruiser|predecessor]], while others have the same sound as the [[Rancher]].

The Sandking has a high amount of ground clearance. The turbocharged diesel V8 provides it with good power and torque, allowing it to get over obstacles easily with four-wheel drive. In game, it acts almost as a monster truck, and with proper speed the player can drive right over most low-profile cars.

The Sandking is an off-road utility vehicle first introduced in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories

DesignEdit

The Sandking appears to be a variant of the Rancher with customizations similar to a Bowler Wildcat. In all of its appearances, the Sandking is depicted with myriad modifications commonly associated with off-road car racing. The Sandking boasts large MMT branded offroad wheels, a large spoiler, and several air scoops on the hood and roof. It has the words "Sand Masters Cup" written on the side and rear, and racing liveries, similar to the decals available in Wheel Arch Angels. The space for the racing number, however, is blank.
