"Mint condition Rat-Loader. This 1930s pickup truck looks like you just drove it out of the Bravado dealership with a quart of moonshine in your pocket and the great depression on your mind."
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Bravado Rat-Truck is a pickup truck featured in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Festive Surprise update.


Grand Theft Auto V

This vehicle appears to be based on a 1939 Chevrolet Pickup Truck. The Rat-Truck is the clean variant of the Rat-Loader, which removes the rusty paint damage, features a tailgate, but has no available modification options for the truck bed, unlike its rusty counterpart. The Rat-Truck features a slightly shorter wheel-base and has wider rear tires by default. All custom tires are narrower than the stock versions, which can not be seen with the Rat-Loader. In a stock form, the Rat-Truck lacks a front license plate. Instead, a rear license plate is present.

The body modifications available for this vehicle can make it look more like a Rat rod.

The default radio station for the Rat-Truck is Channel X.

The Rat-Truck improves upon the Rat-loader with improved acceleration, a slightly higher top speed, and a tighter cornering circle. Braking distance seems to also have been reduced as well, lending the Rat-Truck to be mostly a straight upgrade over the Rat-Loader. Durability is average for the Rat-Truck, as the vehicle retains most of its structural integrity after severe collisions, and its engine is fairly durable.
