The Boxville is a multi-stop truck or walk-in delivery van featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, Grand Theft Auto IV, Grand Theft Auto V.

Description

Resembling a Chevrolet or GMC Step Van that ranges from the late 1970s to the early 1990s prior to GTA IV, the Boxville's speed and handling is largely the same as any large vehicle, slow with poor steering and braking due to its weight, as well as a high center of gravity that makes the vehicle susceptible to tipping over during high-speed cornering.

As with most other truck-sized vehicles in the between GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories, the Boxville can spawn with a number of different company logos on the sides, and different items of cargo in the cargo compartment.

In GTA IV, the Boxville, now given a Brute brand name, resembles a Ford/Utilimaster step van and is even heavier, slow, and harder to turn at high speeds. Its top speed is 74 mph (120 km/h). GTA IV's Boxville appears to have been carried over to GTA V, where it can be briefly seen with a Postal livery in the game's first trailer.

Burglary Boxville

The "Black" Boxville used for burglaries in GTA San Andreas.

GTA San Andreas features a specialized variant of the Boxville, referred officially as a Boxville, named internally in game files as a "boxburg" (a possible short form of "Boxville Burglary"), and unofficially dubbed the "Boxville Black" or "Black Boxville".

Its difference from a standard Boxville include its unique dark gray body color and a quieter engine noise (the same as a Pony's). The van is integral to the game's burglary sub-missions that take place at night, and is prominently used in one mission where Carl Johnson has to steal Colonel Fuhrberger's weapons for Ryder before sunrise.
