The Benefactor Dubsta is a four-door SUV in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.


Grand Theft Auto V

The Dubsta features classic European styling and features many elements that bear strong resemblance to a Mercedes-Benz G-Class 463. The overall styling is very boxy, putting emphasis on its off-road purpose in favour of appearance.

At the base of the front, a large plastic front bumper, spanning the entire width is visible. Above this bumper, a main, chrome-trimmed central grille is positioned on an elevated area of the front. There are rectangular turn indicator lamp units either side of the grille, whose lower edge is in line with the bottom of the vent for the grille. Above the turn indicators, the main headlamp units are larger and also rectangular. The headlamp units have upper edges that are in line with the top of the main grille. The front quarter areas are almost entirely covered by very wide wheel arch flaring, adding to the muscular appearance of the vehicle. The bonnet/hood features an elevated area similar to both vehicles that it is based on. The windscreen also begins at a height higher than the base of the A pillar, like both of its inspirations. The Dubsta also has Light Smoke window tint applied to its rear windows as default.[1]

The sides continue the utilitarian and rugged theme, featuring straight lines for the main body line and edges for greenhouse windows. The line that separates the side of the body from the roof is also completely straight. At the base of the A pillars, the car features what appear to be large, plastic rear-view mirrors. The rear wheel arches are similar in appearance to the front, but are less elevated from the body.

The Dubsta features good ground clearance, such that its axles and differential can be viewed from a slightly high angle. The SUV features a high displacement engine, presumably a V12 engine based on the badge on the back, but the cover looks like a V8. This is sent through a permanent four wheel drive system, and then finally through large, high-profile tyres to the ground. The Dubsta is one of the most capable off-roading SUV's in the game, since it has the ability to climb over rocks and make it up steep mountains without getting damaged at all and without hesitation, as its V12 supplies an excellent amount of torque.

This SUV sadly suffers from massive body roll both on-road and off-road due to its narrowness. Going over bumps or small debris at high speeds may flip the vehicle entirely. Giving the Dubsta off-road wheels is a viable method to alleviate this setback, fortunately.

Its heavy weight can be useful when ramming other cars or pushing them. By feathering the throttle, it is possible to push a medium weight car with ease. The V12 engine, if untuned, will struggle against the weight and thus it cannot attain high speeds, and has average acceleration.

Dubsta 6x6

Grand Theft Auto V

The Dubsta 6x6 in Grand Theft Auto V.
(Rear quarter view)


There is a 6-wheeled off-road pickup truck variant that was added in the I'm Not a Hipster Update, dubbed the Dubsta 6x6, based on the 6-wheeled variant of the Mercedes-Benz G63.


There is a modified version of the Dubsta that spawns at the meeting points for Offroad truck Races which sports certain modifications that are not available at Los Santos Customs. This variant has the same performance stats as the regular Dubsta, but all of the trim and chrome details have been blacked-out. This model also features more shallow roof indentations and a black bullbar, black rear guard, tailgate-mounted spare tyre and black side-step. The car also has an unknown window tint applied by default.[2] The design details of this variant seem to be inspired by the Mercedes-Benz G Class models modified by the aftermarket tuning company Brabus. Prior to Heists Update, this variant had no manufacturer badge on the garage stats popup if obtained in GTA Online on Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3.

One is found in the mission Trevor Philips Enterprises. It can be obtained post-mission.

In the enhanced version of GTA V, this variant can spawn in two different heavily customized forms, painted in either Brushed Gold or Chrome.
