The [[Vapid]] '''Stanier''' is a four-door sedan making its debut appearances in ''[[Grand Theft Auto V]]'' and ''[[Grand Theft Auto Online]]''. However, in ''[[Grand Theft Auto IV]]'' the same vehicle model appears as [[Taxi|taxi]], [[Police Cruiser|police]] and [[NOOSE Cruiser|NOOSE]] versions. But, the Stanier is not named in GTA IV. It is simply called whatever rendition it is (Police Cruiser, Taxi, etc.). As such, the technical first appearance of the Stanier is in ''GTA V''.
   
==Overview==
+
==Design==
The Stanier is based primarily on the [[wp:Ford_Crown_Victoria|Ford Crown Victoria]]. The Crown Victoria is a popular vehicle for police and taxi applications for its performance and durability due to its body-on-frame construction, rear wheel drive layout, and V8 powertrain. While [[GTA IV]] only had the 1st generation Stanier, two versions, can be seen in [[GTA V]].
+
The Stanier is based primarily on the 1992-1997 [[wp:Ford Crown Victoria|Ford Crown Victoria]] with sutble hints of styling from the 1992-1997 [[wp:Mercury Grand Marquis|Mercury Grand Marquis]] in the 1st generation models and the 1998-2011 [[wp:Ford Crown Victoria|Ford Crown Victoria]] in the second generation models. The 1st generation model also takes major bodywork influences from the [https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chevrolet_Impala seventh generation Chevrolet Impala SS].
  +
There are two different models of Stanier in the [[HD Universe]]. The [[GTA IV]] features the 1st generation Stanier as the Taxi, the Police Cruiser and the NOOSE Cruiser, while [[GTA V]] features the 1st generation Stanier as a civilian model, and the 2nd generation as the public service/emergency version, which includes the Taxi, the Police/[[Sheriff Cruiser|Sheriff]] Cruiser and the [[Unmarked Cruiser]]. The vehicle comes in two versions: a model with matching bumper and body color and a model with black bumpers.
   
===1st Generation (GTA IV) ===
+
Taxi models have a small "Taxi Car" badge on the right side of the rear, next to the tail light, while Law Enforcement variants carries "Police Cruiser" on the same (As this corresponds to Ford's real-world "Police Interceptor" package).
[[File:Taxi-GTA4-Vapid-front.jpg|thumb|150px|1st generation Vapid Stanier in [[GTA IV]].]]
 
Regardless of its application, the Vapid Stanier features a front pushbar, CB radio equipment, and black wheels with chrome centercaps. Law enforcement models additionally have a [[police computer]], roof-mounted lightbars, and a spotlight mounted on the driver's side. The taxi variants have a rear pushbar, fare meter, taxi lights and markers, and a hood-mounted taxi medallion; some taxis may also have roof-mounted advertising. The taxi version of the Stanier is simply called the [[Taxi]], while the police vehicle is called the [[Police Cruiser]], to separate it from the [[Police Patrol]] (a modified [[Merit]]).
 
   
===1st Generation (GTA V)===
+
===1st Generation===
1st generation Stanier models from [[GTA IV]] can be seen as civilian units in [[GTA V]].
+
The Stanier appears in ''GTA IV'' as a generic sedan with multiple purposes and with a generic design. Regardless of its application, the Vapid Stanier features a front pushbar, a CB radio equipment, and black wheels with chrome centercaps.
   
===2nd Generation (GTA V)===
+
The Taxi variants have a rear pushbar, fare meter, taxi lights and markers, and a hood-mounted taxi medallion; some taxis may also have roof-mounted advertising. Law enforcement models additionally have a [[police computer]], roof-mounted lightbars and a spotlight mounted on the driver's side. The taxi version is simply called '''[[Taxi]]''', while the police one is called '''[[Police Cruiser]]''', to separate it from the [[Police Patrol]] (a modified [[Merit]]).
[[File:Ajmlspdstanierfrot.jpg|thumb|150px|2nd generation Stanier.]]
 
The updated Stanier features a commercial model, which is the basis of the [[Police Cruiser]], [[Taxi]], [[Sheriff's Cruiser]] and [[Unmarked Cruiser]]. This variant is based on the 1998-2011 model of the Crown Victoria but the front end of the vehicle shares a resemblance of the seventh-gen Chevy Impala. Civilian versions of the newer Stanier are not in GTA V. Compared to the first generation, this unit is more square in shape then the more bulbous 1st generation Stanier. All of these models have a small "Police Cruiser" badge on the right side of the rear, below the taillight. This corresponds to Ford's real-world "Police Interceptor" package.
 
   
  +
For ''[[GTA V]]'', the 1st generation Stanier from GTA IV can be seen as civilian units, albeit with the odd details of unpainted C pillars from GTA IV.
  +
  +
===2nd Generation===
  +
An updated version of the original Stanier appears in ''GTA V''. This variant is based on the 1998-2011 model of the Crown Victoria but the front end of the vehicle shares a resemblance of the seventh-gen [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:94-96_Chevrolet_Impala_SS.jpg Chevrolet Impala SS] & the 4th generation [[wp:Chevrolet Caprice|Chevrolet Caprice]].
  +
  +
The updated Stanier now serves as the basis of the [[Police Cruiser]], [[Taxi]], [[Sheriff's Cruiser]] and [[Unmarked Cruiser]], however there are no civilian units (just like the 1st gen version in GTA IV). Compared to the first generation, this model is more squared in shape than the more bulbous 1st generation Stanier, yet bigger than it.
  +
  +
There are minor differences between these models. the [[Taxi]] has a longer, chrome grille, a weaker engine, and wheels from the taxi from GTA IV, but with a smaller, different centercap. The overall appearance gives the impression that it was inspired by the pre-2003 commercial version of the Crown Victoria. In contrast, the police variation of the Stanier borrows many details from the 2003-2011 Ford CVPI, including a polymer grille, wheels resembling that of the 2006 model year using lower profile tires, and many other polymer elements and details. The Sheriff Cruiser and LSPD Cruiser also share differing elements; The LSPD version utilizes Xenon headlights and its emergency taillights uses noticeably faster wig-wag patterns, while the Sheriff Cruiser simply does not.

The Stanier is powered by a 4.6L V8, coupled to a 5 speed gearbox in a RWD layout. Acceleration is good, and the top speed is above average and its braking and suspension are very good. It has a low rev limit, which can be felt at higher rpms. Also, the engine feels as if it runs out of steam before the transmission switches gear. It has a higher top speed than its [[Declasse]]- branded competitor ([[Merit]]).

The car's weakness lies in its poor suspension, as the car experiences incredible amounts of body roll and has a tendency to oversteer off throttle. Stability is average at high speeds, but due to its very soft suspension the car does wallow and float about quite a bit. The car does appear to have some decent tires on it, however, which does help with improving the handling quality, if only just a bit.

Crash deformation is also average, and the suspension does not take very long to start meandering one way or the other. The engine is not fragile, but is certainly not the toughest to destroy in the game, although it fares better than the [[Police Buffalo]].

Because of its retained feature of police suspension, the Stainer has one of the best handling characteristics of all the sedans in the game, and is very consistent. Inherently, the Stanier's performance in crashes remains stellar - being able to take multiple direct hits to the chassis, drivetrain, and suspension without failure, likely because Rockstar wanted to emulate the real Crown Victoria's safety record and collision endurance capabilities.

Latest revision as of 18:25, January 27, 2016


"If you took a cab or got arrested in the 1990s, there's a high chance you ended up in the back of a Vapid Stanier. Discontinued following widespread reports of fuel tanks exploding on impact in rear-end collisions. So try to avoid that."
Southernsanandreassuperautos.com description.

The Vapid Stanier is a four-door sedan making its debut appearances in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online. However, in Grand Theft Auto IV the same vehicle model appears as taxi, police and NOOSE versions. But, the Stanier is not named in GTA IV. It is simply called whatever rendition it is (Police Cruiser, Taxi, etc.). As such, the technical first appearance of the Stanier is in GTA V.

DesignEdit

The Stanier is based primarily on the 1992-1997 Ford Crown Victoria with sutble hints of styling from the 1992-1997 Mercury Grand Marquis in the 1st generation models and the 1998-2011 Ford Crown Victoria in the second generation models. The 1st generation model also takes major bodywork influences from the seventh generation Chevrolet Impala SS. There are two different models of Stanier in the HD Universe. The GTA IV features the 1st generation Stanier as the Taxi, the Police Cruiser and the NOOSE Cruiser, while GTA V features the 1st generation Stanier as a civilian model, and the 2nd generation as the public service/emergency version, which includes the Taxi, the Police/Sheriff Cruiser and the Unmarked Cruiser. The vehicle comes in two versions: a model with matching bumper and body color and a model with black bumpers.

Taxi models have a small "Taxi Car" badge on the right side of the rear, next to the tail light, while Law Enforcement variants carries "Police Cruiser" on the same (As this corresponds to Ford's real-world "Police Interceptor" package).

1st GenerationEdit

The Stanier appears in GTA IV as a generic sedan with multiple purposes and with a generic design. Regardless of its application, the Vapid Stanier features a front pushbar, a CB radio equipment, and black wheels with chrome centercaps.

The Taxi variants have a rear pushbar, fare meter, taxi lights and markers, and a hood-mounted taxi medallion; some taxis may also have roof-mounted advertising. Law enforcement models additionally have a police computer, roof-mounted lightbars and a spotlight mounted on the driver's side. The taxi version is simply called Taxi, while the police one is called Police Cruiser, to separate it from the Police Patrol (a modified Merit).

For GTA V, the 1st generation Stanier from GTA IV can be seen as civilian units, albeit with the odd details of unpainted C pillars from GTA IV.

2nd GenerationEdit

An updated version of the original Stanier appears in GTA V. This variant is based on the 1998-2011 model of the Crown Victoria but the front end of the vehicle shares a resemblance of the seventh-gen Chevrolet Impala SS & the 4th generation Chevrolet Caprice.

The updated Stanier now serves as the basis of the Police Cruiser, Taxi, Sheriff's Cruiser and Unmarked Cruiser, however there are no civilian units (just like the 1st gen version in GTA IV). Compared to the first generation, this model is more squared in shape than the more bulbous 1st generation Stanier, yet bigger than it.

There are minor differences between these models. the Taxi has a longer, chrome grille, a weaker engine, and wheels from the taxi from GTA IV, but with a smaller, different centercap. The overall appearance gives the impression that it was inspired by the pre-2003 commercial version of the Crown Victoria. In contrast, the police variation of the Stanier borrows many details from the 2003-2011 Ford CVPI, including a polymer grille, wheels resembling that of the 2006 model year using lower profile tires, and many other polymer elements and details. The Sheriff Cruiser and LSPD Cruiser also share differing elements; The LSPD version utilizes Xenon headlights and its emergency taillights uses noticeably faster wig-wag patterns, while the Sheriff Cruiser simply does not.

PerformanceEdit

Grand Theft Auto IVEdit

The Stanier is powered by an apparent 4.6L V8 [citation/verification needed], coupled to a 5-speed gearbox in a RWD layout. Acceleration is good, and the top speed is above average and its braking and suspension are very good. It has a low rev limit, which can be felt at higher RPMs. Also, the engine feels as if it runs out of steam before the transmission switches gear. It has a higher top speed than its Declasse-branded competitor (Merit).

The car's weakness lies in its poor suspension, as the car experiences incredible amounts of body roll and has a tendency to oversteer off throttle. Stability is average at high speeds, but due to its very soft suspension, the car does wallow and float about quite a bit. The car does appear to have some decent tires on it, however, which does help with improving the handling quality, if only just a bit.

Crash deformation is also average, and the suspension does not take very long to start meandering one way or the other. The engine is not fragile, but is certainly not the toughest to destroy in the game, although it fares better than the Police Buffalo.

    • The website's description also references the Crown Victoria's popularity among law enforcement and taxi companies, due to its mechanical reliability and body-on-frame construction. The first generation Crown Victoria was made from 1992 to 1997.
  • Similar to the Gresley, the Stanier could be named after a famous locomotive engineer, William Stanier, who was best known for his designs for the London, Midland and Scottish Railway.
  • The Stanier possibly shares the same platform with the Washington and Admiral, like their real life counterparts do (Ford Crown Victoria, Lincoln Town Car and Mercury Grand Marquis).
    • Out of all these cars, the Stanier is probably the least luxurious of them all, since it is not considered an executive vehicle.

Grand Theft Auto IVEdit

  • Despite the Stanier's turn indicator being combined with its red brake light, the reflection on the ground will be orange when the signal is on, instead of red.

Grand Theft Auto VEdit

  • The default radio station for the Stanier is WorldWide FM.
  • Being the civilian variant of a taxi and a police car, the Stanier effectively fills the role previously slotted by the 3D Universe rendition of the Premier, previously seen in GTA San Andreas and as a beta vehicle in Liberty City Stories.
  • Strangely, a floating computer screen can be seen above the center console in the Stanier, likely an oversight during the conversion from the GTA IV Police Cruiser.
  • Blowing up the tires of the Stanier will show invisible rims.
