"What happens in the back, stays in the back. The No1 best-selling van among kidnappers and molesters for over 30 years."
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Rumpo is a van featured in the 3D Universe and HD Universe. It is manufactured by Bravado in the HD Universe.


The Rumpo is an average-sized van capable of carrying four passengers (two in the front, two in the back). It is common and can be found in most areas in the cities in which it appears, but like all vans, it tends to be most common in industrial areas.

3D Universe

In Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, the van appears to be based on a first generation Dodge Ram Van, with the side paneling of a Ford Van. A design trait unique to this rendition of the Rumpo are the small 70's-style windows located at the rear of the van. A modified version of this van is used by the Southside Hoods gang.

From Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, the Rumpo is very different, taking on the design originally sported by the Pony (see 'Naming confusion' section below). Rumpos typically sport a variety of company logos (e.g. Final Build Construction). These Rumpos appear to resemble the first-generation Fiat Ducato.

Grand Theft Auto V

In Grand Theft Auto V, the Rumpo was redesigned and now resembles a Ford E-Series, with touches from the Chevrolet Express. Unlike most Bravado vehicles, the Rumpo does not take any inspiration from any Dodge car.

The vehicle can come in four colors: gray, dark gray, white or red, occasionally with a Weazel News livery (despite not featuring any specialized equipment). The van also has an unknown window tint applied by default.[1]

As for the Heists Update, the Rumpo can be customized at Los Santos Customs to feature this Weazel News livery as seen in the photos below.

3D Universe

When originally introduced in Grand Theft Auto III, the Rumpo is fairly fast, but with average handling and a tendency to two-wheel and tip over under rough cornering.

The redesigned Rumpo in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories handles much like the smaller Pony, but is slightly slower and heavier (weighing at 1700 kg, 100 kg less than the Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories renditions). Also, because of its height and stiff suspension it has a nasty tendency to jolt around and even tip on bumpy roads.

Grand Theft Auto V

The Rumpo in Grand Theft Auto V has average acceleration compared to other vans, but can be modified with a turbocharger in Los Santos Customs to bring it on par with the Ambulance. The Rumpo is somewhat agile and can corner easily at low speeds. Durability is average. An advantage of the Rumpo is its high ground clearance, allowing it to cover rough ground with ease.

Naming confusion

There is some confusion regarding the names and designs of the Rumpo, the Burrito and the Pony throughout the 3D Universe.

In GTA III, the Rumpo chiefly resembles a Dodge Ram Van; in subsequent games, however, the Ram Van-derived vehicle is named Burrito. In GTA III, the Pony is a large van with an elevated roof; in GTA Vice City and GTA San Andreas, the Rumpo inherited this design, and the Pony was given a new one.

Special Variants

Grand Theft Auto III

In GTA III, a unique all-black Rumpo with black trims appears during the mission Under Surveillance, as a vehicle occupied by two targets which the player must kill. To acquire the van, the player must open fire at the vehicle at close range using a gun, forcing the occupants to exit the vehicle; if shot from a distance, the driver may use the van as a weapon to run over the player, making the act of retrieving the van more difficult. Once the targets are killed, the player may take control of the vehicle and save it in a garage after the mission is complete.

Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories

In GTA Liberty City Stories, a unique all-red Rumpo with red bumpers appears during the mission Bringing the House Down, as the van carrying explosives to be placed on the old subway tracks that runs under Fort Staunton. To acquire the vehicle, simply complete the mission in the van.

Grand Theft Auto V


A Deludamol-branded variant appears during the mission Mrs Philips, when Trevor is tasked to steal one for his mother. The capacity is limited to 2 due to the cargo load of Deludamol in the rear compartment.

  • Occasionally spawns outside the liquor store opposite the entrance to the Sheriff's office in Paleto Bay.

Grand Theft Auto Online



  • The GTA Vice City, GTA San Andreas, and GTA Vice City Stories renditions of the Rumpo feature a cosmetic glitch in which any Rumpo using a Pay 'n' Spray will emerge with its front bumper facing in the opposite direction, towards the rear. The problem can be remedied simply by parking the vehicle in a garage to restore it to its original condition. This glitch is also present in GTA Vice City's Pony.
  • The Rumpo plays the following radio stations when entered:
  • Rumpo is Latin for "I burst". It is also the name of a village in Estonia, as well as a slang term for sex.
    • Coincidentally, the word "Rumpo" is also very similar to the Swedish word "rumpa", which means "butt".
  • In Midnight Club 3 DUB Edition, the 11th race of the Big Playas in the 2nd laps a white Rumpo is seen.

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars

Grand Theft Auto V

  • Before the Heists Update, if the player entered a Los Santos Customs garage with the Rumpo, its manufacturer was stated as Grotti, despite the Rumpo is made by Bravado.
  • As of update 1.21, the Rumpo's performance upgrades have been limited.


Grand Theft Auto V

  • There is a small modelling error on the rear right wheel arch; part of the underside texture is misplaced around the rear portion, which exposes part of the interior.
