Description

Design

The Newsvan is designed as a news van for SAN News, with a satellite dish on the roof, and its rear compartment containing crudely rendered broadcasting equipment as well as a chair. It has no special function (despite having a satellite dish), and is not important to any missions. The front appears to based on a fourth generation Ford Econoline but the sides seem to be from the third generation Econoline. The sides could as well be from a 1979–1993 Dodge Ram Van since the taillights seem inspired from one.

Performance

The performance of the Newsvan is moderate-to-excellent, with a moderate acceleration with good torque, a good top speed, good hill climbing capabilities, and good durability. Due to its height, however, it has a tendency to flip if driven over rough terrains. The Newsvan's braking is very good.

White Newsvan

The white Newsvan from "Cut Throat Business".

In the mission Cut Throat Business there is a chance to get a indestructible Newsvan with a unique white color. The player may simply fail the mission by failing to chase the fleeing OG Loc in the beginning, thereby gaining the Newsvan, which remains parked at the same location.

Trivia

  • The default radio station in the Newsvan is West Coast Talk Radio.
  • In the beta release, news vans were to report on a crime a couple minutes after it was commited (i.e. murder or robbery)
