Body style 4-door civilian SUV

Manufacturer Benefactor (GTA IV)

The Serrano is a luxury SUV made by Benefactor in the second downloadable content for GTA IV: TBOGT. The name "Serrano" is based on that of the Porsche Cayenne as both names are chili peppers. This type of name imitation is also seen in the Habanero.



The hood design, grille, greenhouse, and sides are similar to a Mercedes-Benz M Class W164; Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class influences are seen on the crease on the sides, the rear, and the front bumper somewhat; the headlights are much like a 2004-2006 Volkswagen Touareg but with added turning signals. The engine badge on the side reads V12, just like the one on the Schafter.

There are two variants of the SUV:

  • Standard Version: Which share the same rims with the Emperor Habanero
  • AMG Version: Which has tinted windows, a custom chrome grill with a large Benefactor emblem in the middle, resembling a Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class grill, and custom alloy wheels with the spokes being in a upside down "Y" shape.

The Serrano is easily acquirable by phoning up Henrique Bardas and asking him to steal one for him.


The four-wheel-drive V12 SUV has above-average acceleration and, as the engine suggests, a high top speed. It has heaps of torque and can practically make it up all hills in the game. Overall, it is definitely one of the fastest SUVs in the game.
