The Steed closely resembles a 1992-1996 Ford Econoline delivery truck, and as such may be seen as a "successor" of the 3D Universe Mule, which was also depicted as a Ford E-Series box truck (since the Mule reappears in the HD Universe alongside the Steed; however, based on the Isuzu Elf).
The Steed comes with various company names on the sides, such as, 24/7 Supermarkets, Krapea, Liberty Tree, Logger Beer, Raine, and Üder Milkén. As is with the majority of delivery vehicles, the Steed may also been seen with graffiti on its cargo hold. It also can have a blank variant with no company names or graffiti.
The Steed has a minor difference compared to other cars. The front license plate is notably smaller than the rest of Liberty City's license plates.

The Steed's engine is sounds to be a diesel 4 cylinder coupled to a 5-speed gearbox. Like most large vehicles, the Steed has poor acceleration and handling, but it has a very good top speed for a vehicle of its size. The braking is also very good. Despite its height, the Steed doesn't tip over easily.
