==Description==
+
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]].
===Design===
 
The Utility Van 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 [[State of San Andreas|San Andreas]]. It can only be obtained through the use of [[modifications]] or trainers.

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



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.

DesignEdit

GTA San AndreasEdit

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.

GTA VEdit

In GTA 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.

PerformanceEdit

GTA VEdit

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.
