The Youga is based on a 1995-2003 Dodge Ram Van, which has performance modifications including removed rear seats, racing wheels, and a lowered suspension. The van also has blacked-out headlights. Unlike the real life inspiration, the van has two sliding doors instead of one.
The Youga is powered by a high-performance 5.0L twin turbo diesel V8 in a rear-drive configuration. Even with added performance parts, the van remains reluctant when accelerating. Top speed is rather low. In comparison, the Duneloader can reach higher speeds. One feature of this car is its weight and durability. Both are very high, giving it the ability to ram vehicles without slowing down much or taking damage.

- Commonly seen driving around and parked in Los Santos.
- Rarely seen driving in Sandy Shores.
- One usually spawns next to the hangar available to Michael at Los Santos International Airport.
- Rarely seen driving around El Burro Heights.
- Commonly found at the shipyard in the Terminal near Simeon's garage.
- The stock wheels found on the Youga are Dished Eight wheels, which are available for other cars in Los Santos Customs and Beeker's Garage.
- The Youga is the only van in the game that cannot hold people in the back. This is probably due the fact that in Los Santos Customs the player can add roll bars which blocks the seats, but even if the player doesn't buy roll bars it is impossible to sit there.
- Even if the Youga has been applied with the panel van conversion modification through Los Santos Customs, bullets hitting the parts where the windows would be would still behave as if the windows got shattered, and the bullets would still go through.
- Unfortunately, it is impossible to have passengers in the back. Both sliding side doors and back doors are unopenable.
- The term "Youga Base" is used to describe a certain style of modification done to Dodge vans, which involves slamming the van and painting it to look like a mix of beat up and brand new. Such vans are used for racing and have modified engines and racing wheels.
