"Make your deliveries in rain or shine, snow or sleet, but not high winds because this guy can barely get around corners without taking a tumble."
Post OP variant, Warstock Cache & Carry description.

The Boxville is a multi-stop truck or walk-in delivery van featured in both the 3D Universe and HD Universe. It is manufactured by Brute in the HD Universe.

Design

3D Universe

The Boxville has a rather boxy design in all of its appearances, and most closely resembles a Chevrolet or GMC Step Van that ranges from the late 1970s to the early 1990s.

The Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories rendition is very bulky and large with small thin wheels, with different paint job conditions (being the Vice City model with the most faded paint job at the bottom). The San Andreas rendition, however, has a slightly curved roof and a smaller front fascia, as well as a cleaner paintjob.

Grand Theft Auto IV

The Boxville still assumes some of the influences from the GMC Step Van, but unlike the 3D Universe renditions, it is less bulkier, resulting in a light and versatile vehicle. It is still the heaviest delivery van in all the GTA games.

The Boxville now includes a bit rounded bodywork, smaller frontage and a bigger front bumper, while the rear bumper is now a step-side bumper for the cargo doors. This model, unlike previous renditions, does not "cut" the driver's compartment and the cargo compartment. Instead, features a small corridor that leads to the cargo compartment.

In Grand Theft Auto IV, all Boxvilles are not operated by a specific company, as all of them are blanks in the city. However, there are clean and "vandalized" variants, which the later one features a graffiti over the lower section of the side panels.

Grand Theft Auto V

In Grand Theft Auto V, the Boxville appears in several versions alongside the original postal Boxville.

The Boxville no longer appears with graffiti marked on the sides and lacks the red stripe down the side of the van. In the enhanced version of the game, the LSDS livery was removed from the second variant of the Boxville, meaning only the LSDWP livery spawns on this variant. The LSDS livery can still be obtained in the original Xbox 360/PlayStation 3 version of the game, but is otherwise unobtainable in the enhanced Xbox One/PlayStation 4/PC version of the game.

The Los Santos Department of Water variant of the Boxville features functional amber beacons which can be activated using the horn button. When doing so, other vehicles will move out of the way in the same they would for emergency vehicles. Boxvilles also feature a prolonged reversing bleeper shared with several other service trucks of the same style. Other features include a rear-view mirror mounted on the left rear corner of the truck for the driver to use when reversing.

All variants carry four occupants including the driver, with two rear occupants sitting in the rear compartment of the truck, similar to the Stockade. The rear interior of the truck is relatively basic with wooden benches on either rear wheel well. The Humane Labs & Research variant features boxes and crates in the rear, unlike any of the other variants.

Grand Theft Auto Online

A Boxville with a unique Post OP livery was added in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Heists Update. It is beige with a brown stripe on either side, where it features the company's logo. This variant does not feature any of the internal extras, such as coffee cups and cigarette trays, however it now features a permanent clipboard laid on the passenger side of the dashboard, reused from the Mule.

Performance

3D Universe

The Boxville's speed and handling is mostly the same as any large vehicle. Due to its large size and weight, it suffers from poor steering and handling, and its tires lose grip with the road much easier. Because of its high center of gravity, it is prone to tipping over if driven on rough, uneven terrain. However, its large size can be used as an advantage; It can easily ram smaller cars off the road.

The Boxville in GTA San Andreas has a horn nearly identical to the Mafia Sentinel, Sentinel XS and the Vice City rendition of the Sabre.

Grand Theft Auto IV

The Boxville in GTA IV has poor performance in most areas. The vehicle itself is extremely heavy, negating its ability to accelerate and maintain a reasonable speed, let alone gather a high top speed. The vehicle has slow handling, however, due to the weight and sheer size, it is able to ram other vehicles, especially compact cars and sedans, off the road. The truck has reasonable brakes, but are still mediocre and often fail to stop the vehicle in reasonable time.

The vehicle is powered by what appears to be modeled as a twin-cam turbocharged Inline-4, in a front engine, rear wheel drive configuration. The engine is coupled up to, evidently by sound, a low-geared 5 speed transmission.

The Boxville has a tendency to fall over in sharp turns. This is a substantial flaw, since the vehicle is used as a getaway vehicle in some missions throughout the series.

Grand Theft Auto V

The Boxville returns to GTA V mostly unchanged. The van returns with the exact same engine layout, albeit with more detail. The vehicle's performance specifications and overall speed remain unchanged, however, due to GTA V's new handling physics, the vehicle turns much quicker, with much better, stiffer suspension, which benefits in acceleration and braking rates, however, the vehicle is still extremely heavy and therefore outweighs the aforementioned benefits.

In the enhanced version, the engine sound is now changed. Instead of sharing the engine sound of the Mule, it now occupies an engine sound similar to that of the Surfer. All variants of the truck appear to sport a turbocharged inline-4 engine, mounted in a front-engine, rear wheel drive configuration, coupled up to a 4-speed gearbox.

Liveries

Grand Theft Auto V

Only two naturally spawning liveries are available for the Boxville, assigned to separate vehicle models (a construction model and standard commercial model). There were originally two liveries available for the construction model, however the LSDS livery was moved in the enhanced version of the game. Both liveries are still available in the original version of the game.
