"Have fun trying to parallel-park the Bobcat XL in a busy city center. This extra long, heavy-duty pick-up truck has become equally popular with both farmers and people who shop at farmers' markets."
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Vapid Bobcat XL is a two-door pickup truck appearing in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.


Grand Theft Auto V

The Bobcat XL is essentially based on the original Bobcat from Grand Theft Auto IV, but comes in a long-wheelbase XL variant. The vehicle retains the front section of the original model. The rear section, however, no longer features stepsides on the truck bed, but is longer than the GTA IV version. The Bobcat XL now mainly resembles a 1981–1991 Chevrolet C30 3+3; however, it features an extended cab instead of a crew cab.

All Bobcats XL come equipped with bull-bars, and some have camper shells over the bed and a small visor above the windshield. While the design hints at a dual (double rear wheel) configuration, the Bobcat XL has single wheels and tires on the rear axle. The tail light texture is shared with the Moonbeam and resembles the tail light design from the KK Jeep Liberty. The Bobcat can tow trailers, as with the Sadler and Bison.

The Bobcat XL may spawn with a single-tone color or a two-tone color, where the primary one is applied on the lower side and the secondary one on the upper side and the upper surfaces of the truck bed walls.

Grand Theft Auto V

Being an older heavy-duty pick up truck, the Bobcat XL, while slow, is acceptable given its purpose and size. The vehicle itself is of large mass and therefore negates performance in many areas, including top speed, acceleration rate, and handling. The vehicle has above average deformation thanks to the front bullbar, wide wheel arches (especially in the rear, which benefit in inability to camber the wheels upon crashing), and wide body frame. The vehicle takes large head on crashes before it starts to show signs of engine damage, and the vehicle is also largely bullet-resistant (with the exception of the occupants, who are still vulnerable due to large windshields).

Much like its base model, the Bobcat XL is powered by what is stated to be a 8.9L liter (550 cui) V10, according to badges, however, the engine takes the form of a single overhead cam V8. The high displacement engine is connected to, evidently by sound, a 5 speed transmission system, further connected via driveshafts to a front engine, rear wheel drive drivetrain (contrary to its "Super 4x4" badges, which indicates it is an AWD vehicle).
