"With a vehicle as seminal as the Yosemite, it's hard to know where to start. You could talk about the drop-center ladder frame and the low slung cabin. You could talk about the independent front suspension. Or you could talk about how thins thing has been slammed so hard you'll have to be careful driving over fallen leaves. But at the end of the day, you won't be talking at all, because you'll be too busy grinning like an idiot whenever you're behind the wheel."
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description

The Yosemite is a full-size pickup truck featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Doomsday Heist update. It is manufactured by Declasse in the HD Universe.


Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

The Yosemite is evidently a full-size pickup truck larger in size than Bobcat, resembling a heavy-duty version of a 1988-1999 GMC Sierra full size pickup (but missing a pair of headlights). Its two-tone color schemes seem inspired by most early 1980s pickups. The vehicle is only capable of seating two. The truck is presumably named after the Yosemite National Park in California, probably as some link to the Sierra Nevada than the GMC Sierra.

The PS2 and the mobile versions of the Yosemite have a twin-rear axle tire configuration, while the PC version does not. The Yosemite cannot be modified.

Grand Theft Auto Online

This article or section refers to content in the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC renditions of Grand Theft Auto V and/or Grand Theft Auto Online, that is not featured on the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 versions.
For a complete list of the features of the "enhanced" version of Grand Theft Auto V, please see here.

The body style is clearly based on the 1967-1972 second generation C10. These trucks are commonly restored in a fashion of low-riding. In game, the car has a suspension that resembles air-ride suspension. When at a stand still, the truck automatically lowers to the preferred suspension added in the Mod Garages. When in motion, the suspension lifts up to provide a smooth ride without having to worry about being too low to the ground. The truck only seats two, as the previous version of the Yosemite did.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

The Yosemite is powered by a longitudinally-mounted V6 engine with a 2-barrel carburetor.

Based on the vehicle's internal statistics, the Yosemite possess superior qualities over most other pickup trucks, (second only to the Picador in terms of performance) with good speed, acceleration, and handling; these attributes were also tested by Rockstar to ascertain the vehicle's performance.

In practice, however, the Yosemite is revealed to be one of the heaviest pickup trucks in the game, resulting in severe understeer, less responsive brakes and sluggish acceleration, but still manages to achieve above average top speeds at straightaways. The truck may be useful for off-roading due to its high ground clearance, but its stiff suspension may also prove to be a problem when traversing rough terrain. Even worse is the RWD configuration which is rubbish when in sand terrain.

  • The default radio station in the Yosemite is K-DST.
  • On the original PS2 version of the game, the Yosemite had double rear wheels (commonly known as a "dually" configuration). However, despite this, when the player skids or does burnouts with the vehicle, it only leaves single skid marks. The vehicle does not have enough room for the inner tires, making these pass through the car's underside.
    • Because of this developer oversight, on subsequent releases of the game on PC and Xbox, the Yosemite has been modified so that it only has single rear wheels.
