The Van is a vehicle featured in Grand Theft Auto 2.
As implied, the vehicle is a large freight van presumably designed for both commercial and industrial use, and thus is designed with a heavily utilitarian and chunky appearance. The van may also be used to carry passengers, with the back compartment accessible via a pair of sliding doors at the sides.
The Van's performance is unimpressive. Being large and moderately heavy, the vehicle is only capable of average top speeds, mediocre acceleration and sensitive but heavy controls, due largely to weight. The vehicle's braking, however, is acceptable. Its large size also makes the vehicle unsuitable for crushing.
It bears some resemblance to a Chevrolet Corvair Van.
The Van's driver's cab serves as the basis of multiple vehicles of similar size in GTA 2, including:
- The Hot Dog Van;
- The Ice-Cream Van;
- The Tow Truck; and
- The T.V. Van, which shares the same deltas as the Van but features an additional roof-mounted antenna.
- The Scientists' custom gold van, only drivable in Fire Truck Fun!.
- The Zaibatsus' custom black van, only driveable in Lick Those Loonies!
- The Loonies' custom black van, only available in Happy Gas Smash!
