The Bulldozer is a heavy earth-moving vehicle in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories and Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars. It is considered a successor to the similarly named Dozer in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
The Bulldozer in GTA Vice City Stories assumes a significantly different appearance from its predecessor, the Dozer, while retaining the front loader design of the previous rendition. The Bulldozer is longer than the Dozer, and features a closed cab complete with doors. However, the Bulldozer's new "scooping" ram is not adjustable. Its engine sound is strangely shared with sports/supercars like the Cheetah, Infernus, and Stinger, but has a different horn sound otherwise.
GTA Chinatown War's Bulldozer design is similar to the GTA Vice City Stories rendition, down to the body design and size.
Unlike the Dozer, the Bulldozer features front wheel drive (as opposed to rear wheel drive), resulting in the vehicle suffering from poorer cornering and requiring a large turning radius. However, the vehicle is peculiar in that while its acceleration is poor, the Bulldozer can achieve moderately good top speeds along straightaways; for GTA Chinatown Wars its top speed receives a minor reduction and its acceleration remains poor. The Bulldozer also lacks a movable ram seen on the Dozer.
Being large and heavy, however, the Bulldozer is significantly durable and suitable pushing aside or ramming vehicles, which in GTA Chinatown Wars is particularly helpful when disabling pursuing police cars.
