(Trivia: Fixed an incorrect statement. There are indeed ice cream vans in Los Angeles (one drives around in Inglewood) but Mexican food is more commonly served by mobile or temporary stands.)

Much like the [[Boxville]], the Taco Van is a heavy rear-wheel-drive vehicle. Its engine is capable of powering it up to moderately high speeds, but acceleration suffers, likely due to its heavy weight. Poor weight distribution makes the vehicle prone to tipping over when cornering at high speeds, and due to its significant body roll and heavy weight, it is prone to oversteer as well. However, its weight can be used as an advantage when trying to ram other cars off the road.

The vehicle is powered by a double overhead camshaft inline-4 engine, mounted with a large chrome turbocharger, laid longitudinally in a front engine, rear wheel drive configuration. The engine sounds to be a low revving diesel V8 with slow valve timing.

"Kill that Hunger"
―Side of Taco Van.

The Brute Taco Van is a commercial food van operated by Attack-a-Taco in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.

DesignEdit

The Taco Van is an extended variant of the Boxville, replacing the Mr. Tasty from GTA IV. The ice cream trucks were replaced by the Taco Van, which is popular in Los Angeles. Unlike the Mr Tasty, the Taco Van lacks a jingle bell or a unique horn, having a random ordinary horn, and despite being very large, it only carries the driver. The air conditioner that sticks out of the left wall is blocking the driver's view of the rear corner mirror.

The name of the food truck, according to the menu list, is Attack-A-Taco. The slogan is "Kill That Hunger." The shape of a grenade is used as the logo, while the 'o' in it's name also represents a grenade. It serves these Mexican dishes:

  • Tacos/Burritos/Tortas (sandwiches). De asada (steak), Picadillo (mince meat), Carnitas (Mexican style pork), Barbacoa (Mexican barbecued lamb), Lengua (Ox tongue), Pancita (Ox belly), Buche.
  • Quesadillas.
  • Tostadas (deep fried tortillas).
  • Sodas and Juices.

The Taco Van can spawn with or without an additional roof sign displaying the company name.

Poor weight distribution makes the vehicle prone to tipping over when cornering at high speeds, and due to its significant body roll and heavy weight, it is prone to oversteer as well. However, its weight can be used as an advantage when trying to ram other cars off the road. 

The vehicle is powered by a double overhead camshaft inline-4 engine, mounted with a large chrome turbocharger, laid longitudinally in a front engine, rear wheel drive configuration. The engine sounds to be a low revving diesel V8 with slow valve timing.
