"The modern SUV is an incredible piece of engineering: stylish, rugged, practical, safe. But if you're looking for something that managed to dodge every single one of those qualities, the BeeJay XL is the only choice on the market."
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Karin BeeJay XL is a four-door midsize SUV in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.


Grand Theft Auto V

The car features a retro utilitarian design theme, which seems to be inspired by the Japanese styling found on the Toyota FJ Cruiser, but with a flatter, less aggressive appearance and regular second-row doors (as opposed to suicide doors). The rear bumper and fascia bears some resemblance to the first generation Toyota RAV4, while the grille resembles that of a Hummer H2.

The front end of the BeeJay XL is very bulky, mostly due to the large bumper with a chromed line on the bottom, turning lights and a "KARIN" marking on the front intake. The front area of the vehicle is represented as a large grey bar with four circular headlights and the grille between these. The hood features a grey vent for the engine and has a rounded body, matching the car's front end. The sides of the SUV lack extra formations and has angled mudguards, with small stepsides between them. The window channels are in a black finish and are easily diffferentiated from the car's pillars, where the primary color takes place. The rear end of the vehicle is practically dominated by the rear compartment door and features two sets of circular LED lights, with the outer ones placed in the car's main body and the inner ones in the rear compartment door, along with reversing lights located between those lights. From the rear wheel fenders to the rear end, a concave line surrounds the rear section of the vehicle. The rear bumper is, like the front one, depicted with chromed details on the sides and rear, also containing the two circular exhausts at the bottom.

The BeeJay XL comes in a two-tone paintjob, with the primary one surrounding the entire vehicle and the secondary one on the roof.

The BeeJay XL has a good top speed, however it leaves much to be desired from acceleration. Due to its heavy weight, some oversteer is noticeable, and because of this, caution must be taken when cornering at high speeds. It is also shown that it can sustain heavy amounts of damage. In terms of pick up and go, the Beejay XL is sub par in acceleration for an SUV but maintains the same level of speed from its competition such as the Gresley and the Granger. When traveling at high speeds there is a notable amount of traction loss compared to its counterparts, yet it seems to have stiffer suspension allowing the vehicle to grab a little more air than the rest.

The BeeJay XL is powered by a V8 engine, as suggested by the engine cover, which is coupled to a 5-speed gearbox in a front engine, all wheel drive (60% front and 40% rear) layout. Like its real life counterpart, it has a large loud sounding engine.

  • The word "BeeJay" is a double entendre. In one hand, it is a clear pun on its real-life equivalent, the Toyota FJ Cruiser (in the past, the BJ was the diesel-engined model of the original Toyota FJ). On the other hand, it references a blowjob.
    • "BeeJay" may also be a reference to the name of the real-life Hummer midsize SUV.
  • The default radio stations for the BeeJay XL are FlyLo FM or Soulwax FM.

Grand Theft Auto V

  • Originally, the BeeJay only had the basic modifications available, but a few body modifications were added in an update.
  • If the player has bought the Offroad Bumper and the front of the car is deformed enough, part of the bumper will remain in its original place and simply "float" in front of the car.
