The car features very strong design elements from the 1930s or 1940s, based on the {{WP|Dodge Power Wagon|Dodge Power Wagon}} from the late 40s. It could also be based on the {{WP|Studebaker US6|Studebaker US6}} for its grille and lights, a military truck from the mid-40s. Judging by the grille and the overall military-like appearance, it is likely a military truck from {{WP|World War II|World War II}}.

The Duneloader is depicted as a large and heavy pickup truck, which has large wheel with rugged tires. The front features a large bumper with a mounted winch and an underside plating to protect the axle, as well as four circular headlights protected by two small grilles. The vehicle also features side vents and what appears to be a snorkel air intake coming from the left side, along with large fenders and stepsides. The Duneloader has a long load bed with a missing tailgate, either empty or with random garbage, such as old tires or planks. The rear lights are generic semitruck lights.

The vehicle is only available in a single color scheme and is always rusty.

The Duneloader has several extra components:

The truck features a high ground clearance and high profile off-road tires come fitted as standard, it has a good performance when off-roading but falls short when hillclimbing due to its lack of 4WD. Acceleration is more than adequate due to its great torque, especially when upgraded. Weight is surprisingly low considering its real life counterpart, which weighs in at nearly three tons. Because of this, the truck can be easily slowed down when crashing into light vehicles. Top speed is quite impressive and can keep up with modern less expensive cars. Handling is mediocre as expected. The ride is stiff and turning is unresponsive but it has low body roll due to its robust leaf spring suspension.

The Duneloader can also tolerate deep water. While not amphibious, the Duneloader can be submerged up until the snorkel on the left side of the cab is drowned. This is because exhausts in ''GTA V'' determine when the vehicle should cut out under water, and the Duneloader's snorkel is considered an exhaust by the game - moreover, small amounts of exhaust fumes can be seen coming out of the snorkel. Since the snorkel ("exhaust") is raised above the cab, the player can drive the Duneloader underwater so long as the tip of the snorkel remains above the water surface. This trait is shared with its armed variant, the [[Half-track]].
  +
  +
The player is able to stand in the bed of the vehicle without the risk of falling off, and take cover in the back of the cab.
  +
  +
The Duneloader is powered by a large engine that resembles those found in the [[Phantom]] and [[Flatbed]], complete with an air filter on the side. Because of the low quality, it is unknown what the current cylinder configuration is.
   
The Duneloader is powered by a large engine that resembles those of the [[Phantom]] and the [[Flatbed]], complete with an air filter on the side. Because of the low detailing, it is unknown what is the current cylinder configuration. It shares both its engine noise and its horn with the [[Benson]], the [[Mule]] and the [[Dozer]].
+
In the original version, its engine sound is the same as heavy trucks like the [[Benson]] and the [[Mule]], but in the enhanced version, it uses a unique engine sound, which matches its pickup design (a slightly heavier variation of the sound found on the [[Rat-Loader]]). It can be noted that the vehicle's engine and transmission seem relatively undermentioned, as the vehicle tends to over-rev during gearshifts, severely impacting the vehicle's acceleration and a lack of a 5th gear results in a low top speed, despite the relatively high revving engine.

The Bravado Duneloader is a two-door pickup truck featured in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.

Design

Grand Theft Auto V

The car features very strong design elements from selected pickups and vans of the 1930s and 1940s. It is heavily based on the Dodge Power Wagon from the late 40s. It also shares traits from the Studebaker US6, particularly its grille and lights, a military truck from the mid-40s. Judging by the grille and the overall military-like appearance, it is likely a former military truck from World War II, similar to the historical context of the Kalahari.

The front fascia features a large bumper with a mounted winch and underside sump guard plating to protect the engine bay and drivetrain. Four circular headlights are protected by two small grilles. The vehicle also features side vents and a snorkel air intake coming from the left side of the engine bay, along with large fenders and stepsides. On the rear, the Duneloader has a long load bed with a missing tailgate, appearing either empty or with random garbage, such as old tires and planks. The rear lights are generic semitruck lights. The vehicle is only available in a single color scheme and is always rusty.

The truck appears in 8 different worn or matte colours, all being relatively subdued. The vehicle also appears with a permanent rust texture which cannot be removed.

The Duneloader has several extra components:

  • Two different variations of trash within the bed, including wooden pallets and tyres.
  • Several extra components on the center of the dashboard in the enhanced version of the game:
    • Two different cups within a cup holder; Burger Shot milkshake or ECola can.
    • An ashtray.
    • A phone holder

Performance

Grand Theft Auto V

The truck features a high ground clearance, and high profile off-road tires come fitted as standard, it has a good performance when off-roading but falls short when hillclimbing due to its lack of 4WD. Acceleration is more than adequate due to its great torque, especially when upgraded. Weight is surprisingly low considering its real life counterpart, which weighs in at nearly three tons. Because of this, the truck can be easily slowed down when crashing into light vehicles. Top speed is quite impressive and can keep up with modern less expensive cars. Handling is mediocre as expected. The ride is stiff and turning is unresponsive but it has low body roll due to its robust leaf spring suspension.

The Duneloader can also tolerate deep water. While not amphibious, the Duneloader can be submerged up until the snorkel on the left side of the cab is drowned. This is because exhausts in GTA V determine when the vehicle should cut out under water, and the Duneloader's snorkel is considered an exhaust by the game - moreover, small amounts of exhaust fumes can be seen coming out of the snorkel. Since the snorkel ("exhaust") is raised above the cab, the player can drive the Duneloader underwater so long as the tip of the snorkel remains above the water surface. This trait is shared with its armed variant, the Half-track.

The player is able to stand in the bed of the vehicle without the risk of falling off, and take cover in the back of the cab.

The Duneloader is powered by a large engine that resembles those found in the Phantom and Flatbed, complete with an air filter on the side. Because of the low quality, it is unknown what the current cylinder configuration is.

In the original version, its engine sound is the same as heavy trucks like the Benson and the Mule, but in the enhanced version, it uses a unique engine sound, which matches its pickup design (a slightly heavier variation of the sound found on the Rat-Loader). It can be noted that the vehicle's engine and transmission seem relatively undermentioned, as the vehicle tends to over-rev during gearshifts, severely impacting the vehicle's acceleration and a lack of a 5th gear results in a low top speed, despite the relatively high revving engine.
