The Utility Van and Utility Truck are utility pickup trucks in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto V. It is manufactured by Vapid in the HD Universe. The GTA V version is technically called as the Stockade-based vehicle, but it's appearance is more reminiscent of the pickup-like vehicle in GTA: San Andreas.


Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

The Utility Van in GTA San Andreas resembles a GMC GMT400 work truck from the 1990s. The 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. It drives somewhat like a semi truck. The Utility Van is one of three vehicles in the game bearing a Sanitary Andreas logo, the other two being the Sweeper and Trashmaster.

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 closely on a Contender, and has a large rear pickup section, often filled up with wheel barrows, 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.

Grand Theft Auto V

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.
