Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Vapid Sandking XL is a four-door off-road pickup featured in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.

Description

The Sandking XL is one of two Vapid-based raised trucks of the same body, the other being the Sandking SWB. Both variants are based on the Sadler body with changes to the chassis and rear bed. The Sandking XL and SWB appear as the HD Universe counterparts of the original 3D Universe Sandking, another raised off-road truck.

Design

Grand Theft Auto V

The design, overall, is strongly related to that of a third-generation Ford Super Duty, with some design cues from the first and second generations, such as the tail lights. The split headlights take cues from numerous generations of Chevrolet Silverado pickups. Unlike the Sadler, the Sandking XL does not feature the F-series signature "dip" along the beltline near the mirror.

The Sandking XL is a full-size, extended cab pickup, which is also a lifted off-road variant of the Sadler. The truck comes with extremely knobby tire treads and impact struts, which begin suspended at the center of the truck and continues down to the wheels, with the suspension blue shock absorbers and its corresponding springs exposed.

When customized, the vehicle can have a bull-bar with two additional lamps. These lights do not function, like the base Sadler and the Sandking SWB.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto V

The Sandking XL has a high amount of ground clearance. The modeled single cam V8 provides it with good power and torque, allowing it to get over obstacles easily, as well as most low-profile cars. While similar to its small brother, the Sandking SWB, its turning radius is less effective due to its larger wheelbase. Acceleration and gear-shift rate also denotes that is less effective than the SWB version.

The truck, however, has poor handling on the roads, offering fairly low levels of grip, due to the truck's heavy body. Off-road, the truck handles better, but the heavy weight of the truck and its long wheelbase contribute to its handling not being the best of the off-roaders, although suspension upgrades can make a noticeable difference. Like the Rebel and other off-road vehicles, however, its exposed tires make an easy target to be shot, unless it is fitted with bulletproof tires. A known glitch or design flaw in the game was that the truck did not feature full 4WD, so off-road traction on steep hills was limited. However, as of update 1.08, the truck now features fully functional 4WD, so it is now an extremely capable off-roader.

The engine sound is similar to the Landstalker's engine sound, however, it is of higher revs, and therefore sounds like a high-revving diesel engine.
