Sanitary
For the Stockade-based Utility Truck that shares the same name in GTA V, see Utility Truck.

The Utility Truck (formerly named "Utility Van") is a utility pickup truck featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto V. It is manufactured by Vapid in the HD Universe.

Design

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

The Utility Van resembles a GMC GMT400 work truck from the 1990s. The Utility Van is one of three vehicles in the game bearing a Sanitary Andreas logo, the other two being the Sweeper and Trashmaster. It appears in three different shades of greyish white, with one scheme including a red stripe.

The Utility Van can tow a Utility Trailer, but the Utility Trailer is not found anywhere in San Andreas. It can only be obtained through the use of modifications or trainers.

Grand Theft Auto V

In Grand Theft Auto V, the Utility Truck is based on a first generation Contender, and has a large rear pickup section, often filled up with wheelbarrows, tools and boxes. Its main inspiration seems to be the Ford F-250 - F-450 "Super Duty" chassis, using the appropriate utility-box accessories seen on commercial variants. Sometimes, the van may spawn with a wheel-barrow in the back, though it isn't interactive in anyway. The Utility Truck can come with different company signatures and names on the door panels and has patches of rust on its body and black exhaust emits from the vehicle when idle or shifting gear.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

The Utility Van does not have very good driving attributes, as it has a rather slow acceleration and top speed. This is probably because it is a very heavy vehicle. The braking is probably one of the Utility Van's best attributes, as it is above average.

The vehicle's engine is definitely a diesel because of the slower shifting and deep sound, and it could very well be a V8 that is obviously underpowered to pull a heavy truck like that.

Grand Theft Auto V

The Utility Truck is not very different from its 3D Universe equivalent and seems to behave like a heavy truck with low acceleration and top speed (even lower than the Stockade-based truck). As suggested by its engine cover, the truck is powered by a V8 engine with an air filter in the intake.

The engine's low power, low traction and the rear wheel drive layout makes it a poor choice for off-roading, as it would not be capable to handle steep hills and will not sort it out unless the truck drives at high speeds. The ground clearance, however, still provides decent handling over uneven terrain, ideal for casual driving around the city or wilderness.
