The Oceanic is a four-door sedan featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories.

Description

Design

Designed after 1950s-'60s car designs, the front and roof of the Oceanic resemble a 1961 Dodge Dart, 1961 Dodge Polara, or 1962 Dodge Custom 880 ; the sides are reminiscent of a 1955 Oldsmobile 88, and the back resembles that of a 1955 Chevrolet (note that the Glendale also combines 1961 Dodge and 1955 GM vehicles, including the Polara, possibly suggesting that they share a manufacturer or are somehow related).

In GTA Vice City and GTA San Andreas, the Oceanic is always seen with a two-tone paint job, white with another color along the side and rear, a style typical of mid-'50s cars; in GTA Vice City Stories, the car is also seen with a single body color.

Performance

The Oceanic only has a moderate top speed, but it has great handling and torque. However, it is also prone to flipping, especially when attempting to go around corners at top speed. Despite its setbacks, its built quality is excellent and can withstand a lot of damage before blowing up, so it is a pretty good choice for ramming into other cars. This, combined with its 4 person capacity makes it a considerable choice for drive-bys or police evasion.

Variants

  • The Oceanic's design serves as the basis of one of two Bloodring Bangers in GTA Vice City, featuring tweaked handling and performance and a modified body design. Unlike its counterpart, the Glendale-based Bloodring Banger, the Oceanic-based variant is not carried over to GTA San Andreas.
  • An Oceanic with briefcases in the trunk appears in GTA Vice City in the mission "Bar Brawl". However, though it can be driven, this car cannot be saved.

Car modification (GTA San Andreas)

  • Color (two areas)
  • Wheels (ten types)
  • Nitro (three types)
  • Bass Boost
  • Hydraulics

Trivia

  • In GTA San Andreas, the Oceanic plays Bounce FM by default when entered.

Locations

The Oceanic is widely available in GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories. This may be due to the large areas of beach in these two games. In GTA San Andreas, the Oceanic can be seen driven by members of the Los Santos Vagos, and as such, the Oceanic becomes a little harder to find after the player has taken over all of their gang territory.

May also spawn in other beach areas of Los Santos.

  • Spawns more often while the beach theme cheat is active.
