The [[Albany]] '''Washington''' is a 4-door sedan found in [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]], [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]], [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]], [[Grand Theft Auto IV]], and [[Grand Theft Auto V]]. It can be found fairly widely throughout cities and in mostly the residental area in GTA Vice City and GTA San Andreas, and is available in many colors throughout the games such except black and white, which are reserved for the [[FBI Washington]] in GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories.[[File:6906.jpg|thumb|A Washington featuring in [[GTA V]]]]

The '''Washington''' is a range of executive sedans found in ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]]'', ''[[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]]'', ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]]'', ''[[Grand Theft Auto IV]]'' and ''[[Grand Theft Auto V]]''. It is manufactured by [[Albany]] in the [[HD Universe]].

It can be widely found throughout cities, particularly the residential area in GTA: Vice City and GTA: San Andreas, and is available in many colors throughout the games.
   
The name is mostly always meant to be a parody of a full-size luxury [[wp:Lincoln (automobile)|Lincoln]] sedan ([[wp:Abraham Lincoln|Abraham Lincoln]] and [[wp:George Washington|George Washington]] having both been Presidents of the United States).

Depictions of the Washington prior to GTA IV bear a similarity to a [[wp:Lincoln Continental#1982 - 1987|1984-1987 Lincoln Continental]], with the rear more alike a [[wp:Lincoln Continental Mark VII|Lincoln Mark VII]].

Depictions of the Washington prior to ''[[Grand Theft Auto IV]]'' bear a similarity to a [[wp:Lincoln Continental|1984-1987 Lincoln Continental]], while also shares styling elements with the [[wp:Cadillac Seville|1984-1987 Cadillac Seville]], [[wp:BMW 7 Series (E23)|BMW E23]] and [[wp:Cadillac Cimarron|Cadillac Cimarron]].
   
The Washington features a generally boxy but then contemporary design resulting in the car being one of the newest cars at the time of GTA Vice City's and GTA Vice City Stories's 1980s settings. For GTA San Andreas, the car remains largely similar, with the exception of wider headlight clusters, a modified front grille and rear light clusters that light up as a whole at night. While similar to the GTA Vice City rendition, the GTA Vice City Stories Washington sports additional side trims derived from the [[FBI Washington]], implying the FBI Washington's vehicle model was used in place of GTA Vice City's original Washington model. The Vice City Stories version of the washington also spawns in white, which it does not in GTA Vice City.

In GTA IV, the [[Albany]] Washington is based on the [[wp:Lincoln_Town_Car#2003.E2.80.932011|2003-2011 Lincoln Town Car]], while the headlights and grille have a slight resemblance to a [[wp:Volkswagen_Phaeton|VW Phaeton]] and [[wp:Ford Fusion (Americas)|2006-2009 Ford Fusion]]. It features "Executive" badging, much like some Town Cars. The rear portion of the greenhouse has an unusually round shape, similar to an [[wp:Chrysler New Yorker#Thirteenth generation|thirteenth generation Chrysler New Yorker]], the rest of the rear also bears a subtle resemblance to it.

== Performance ==
  +
=== 3D Universe ===
  +
Pre-''[[Grand Theft Auto IV]]'' Washingtons are generally regarded as having only moderate performance, being a V6 with RWD powertrain, which is largely attributed to its bulky design. Its longer wheelbase and weight often results in under-steer and poor cornering, while its size may also be a factor in its moderate acceleration, and its top speed is also estimated to be moderate. So getting it to top speed and good acceleration takes longer than sports cars. Nevertheless, its superior size and weight allows the Washington to ram aside other sedans more easily. In ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]]'', the Washington has a V8 engine same with the [[Sentinel XS]].
   
==Performance==
+
=== HD Universe ===
====GTA San Andreas GTA Vice City Stories====
+
The HD-era Washington shares its 4.6L{{Fact}} V8 with the [[Admiral]] and [[Stanier]], coupled to a 5 speed automatic gearbox in an FR drive-train layout. Acceleration is slightly below average, also top speed is slightly below average. Braking is very good, and ABS is standard across the line up. The suspension is very soft, designed to flatten out bumps in a road, not for high speed cornering, leaving the Washington fishtailing and spinning out of control when cornering at speed. Accident deformation is superb, making the Washington ideal for ramming vehicles. The engine build quality is also above average, and will sustain multiple direct impacts before smoking, or being set ablaze.

The Washington in GTA IV is powered by a V8, coupled to a 5 speed gearbox in an FR drivetrain layout. Acceleration is slightly below average, also top speed is slightly below average at 136 mph (218 km/h). Braking is very good, and ABS is standard across the line up. The suspension is very soft, designed to flatten out bumps in a road, not for high speed cornering, leaving the Washington fishtailing and spinning out of control when cornering at speed.

{{GTA V Vehicle Stats
The [[FBI Washington]] is a specialized version of this vehicle (only appearing in GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories), which has side body moldings not found on regular Washingtons. Its acceleration is quite impressive, which becomes useful for catching up to distant criminals when on a [[vigilante]] mission. In GTA Vice City, it is dark gray and found parked behind a music store in [[Downtown Vice City]]; though the FBI instead use the [[FBI Rancher]] at the five star wanted level. In Vice City Stories the FBI Washington is used by the FBI at the five star wanted level (replacing the FBI Rancher), isn't parked anywhere, and is white (there are also regular Washingtons in white as well).

Similarly, two uniquely black Washingtons may be seen driven by the [[GIGN and DGSE|French]] in GTA Vice City during "[[All Hands On Deck]]" in GTA Vice City. While it is possible to reach the cars and enter them, it is impossible to drive them (as the mission immediately ends and the car is lost). It is also impossible to push the cars to a garage as an alternative, as the player is only given a brief window of time before [[Juan Cortez]] is killed, leading to mission failure which warps the player back to the nearby mission trigger with the cars vanished.

A special wagon version of the Washington is used for the game's rendition of the [[Romero]] hearse. A Washington is also requested as part of [[Stevie's Car Thefts]]; unlike most vehicles in the side mission, the Washington appears with a black body color that is not unique, as many black Washingtons can be seen around Algonquin.

Similarly, two uniquely black Washingtons may be seen driven by the [[GIGN and DGSE|French]] in [[GTA: Vice City]] during "[[All Hands On Deck]]" in GTA: Vice City. While it is possible to reach the cars and enter them, it is impossible to drive them (as the mission immediately ends and the car is lost). It is also impossible to push the cars to a garage as an alternative, as the player is only given a brief window of time before [[Juan Cortez]] is killed, leading to mission failure which warps the player back to the nearby mission trigger with the cars vanished.

A special wagon version of the Washington is used for the game's rendition of the [[Romero]] hearse.

"Is there a more iconic town car than the Washington? Own a piece of livery history! (Just don't loiter for too long at traffic lights or someone will get in the back and ask you to take them to the airport)"
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Washington is a range of executive sedans found in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto V. It is manufactured by Albany in the HD Universe.

It can be widely found throughout cities, particularly the residential area in GTA: Vice City and GTA: San Andreas, and is available in many colors throughout the games.


Design Edit

3D Universe Edit

Depictions of the Washington prior to Grand Theft Auto IV bear a similarity to a 1984-1987 Lincoln Continental, while also shares styling elements with the 1984-1987 Cadillac Seville, BMW E23 and Cadillac Cimarron.

The Washington features a generally boxy but then contemporary design resulting in the car being one of the newest cars at the time of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City's and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories's 1980s settings. For Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, the car remains largely similar, with the exception of wider headlight clusters, a modified front grille and rear light clusters that light up as a whole at night. While similar to the GTA: Vice City rendition, the GTA: Vice City Stories Washington sports additional side trims derived from the FBI Washington, implying the FBI Washington's vehicle model was used in place of GTA: Vice City's original Washington model. The Vice City Stories version of the Washington also spawns in white, which it does not in GTA: Vice City.

HD Universe Edit

In Grand Theft Auto IV, the Albany Washington is based on the 2003-2011 Lincoln Town Car, and shares styling elements with the Cadillac Catera and 2006-2009 Ford Fusion. It features "Executive" badging, much like some Town Cars. The rear portion of the greenhouse has an unusually round shape, similar to a fourteenth generation Chrysler New Yorker, the rest of the rear also bears a subtle resemblance to it. It also bears a very subtle resemblance to a 2006-2011 Cadillac DTS.

In Grand Theft Auto V, aside from brighter rear LED strips, the overall design of the Washington remains unchanged from GTA IV.

Performance Edit

3D Universe Edit

Pre-Grand Theft Auto IV Washingtons are generally regarded as having only moderate performance, being a V6 with RWD powertrain, which is largely attributed to its bulky design. Its longer wheelbase and weight often results in under-steer and poor cornering, while its size may also be a factor in its moderate acceleration, and its top speed is also estimated to be moderate. So getting it to top speed and good acceleration takes longer than sports cars. Nevertheless, its superior size and weight allows the Washington to ram aside other sedans more easily. In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, the Washington has a V8 engine same with the Sentinel XS.

HD Universe Edit

The HD-era Washington shares its 4.6L[citation/verification needed] V8 with the Admiral and Stanier, coupled to a 5 speed automatic gearbox in an FR drive-train layout. Acceleration is slightly below average, also top speed is slightly below average. Braking is very good, and ABS is standard across the line up. The suspension is very soft, designed to flatten out bumps in a road, not for high speed cornering, leaving the Washington fishtailing and spinning out of control when cornering at speed. Accident deformation is superb, making the Washington ideal for ramming vehicles. The engine build quality is also above average, and will sustain multiple direct impacts before smoking, or being set ablaze.

Variants Edit

FBIEdit

Main article: FBI Washington

The FBI Washington is a law enforcement counterpart of the Washington appearing in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories.

Romero HearseEdit

Main article: Romero Hearse

The Romero or Romero Hearse is a Washington-based hearse appearing in multiple GTA games.

StretchEdit

Main article: Stretch

The Stretch is a Washington-based limousine that shares the Washington's front and rear portions in its GTA V appearance.

Special VariantsEdit

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Edit

A black/white version is reserved for the FBI Washington in GTA: Vice City and GTA: Vice City Stories.

Similarly, two uniquely black Washingtons may be seen driven by the French in GTA: Vice City during "All Hands On Deck" in GTA: Vice City. While it is possible to reach the cars and enter them, it is impossible to drive them (as the mission immediately ends and the car is lost). It is also impossible to push the cars to a garage as an alternative, as the player is only given a brief window of time before Juan Cortez is killed, leading to mission failure which warps the player back to the nearby mission trigger with the cars vanished.

Grand Theft Auto IV Edit

A special wagon version of the Washington is used for the game's rendition of the Romero hearse. A Washington is also requested as part of Stevie's Car Thefts; unlike most vehicles in the side mission, the Washington appears with a black body color that is not unique, as many black Washingtons can be seen around Algonquin.
