"A metal cage soldered to a wheel chassis isn't everybody's first choice of car, which is why Canis decided to take their signature off-road car model, encase it in some flimsy bodywork and re-market it as a "Family SUV.""
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Canis Seminole is a four-door mid-size SUV featured in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.


Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online

This SUV's design appears to be inspired by that of the second generation Jeep Grand Cherokee, which is shown in the hood, rims, and main body line. The front bumper looks to be both from the pre and post facelift models, while having a lower brush guard from a 2007-2013 Volvo XC90 and Pontiac Torrent. The wheel arches, greenhouse area, and side trim are from the third generation Jeep Grand Cherokee, while the front fascia seems to be inspired by the third generation Nissan Pathfinder/second generation Nissan Frontier.

The Seminole is distinguished by its apparent sturdy profile, where the front end is largely dominated by a bulky bumper with a brush guard, whose outer frame is finished in chrome. A set of unused circular lamps can be seen on either side of the bumper, located in black housings. The upper half features a meshed grille surrounded by chrome separations, with the middle one being thinner than the two central ones. Besides the grille, there are dual headlights and turning signals, which are also surrounded in chrome. The brand's name is seen embossed on the hood, just above the grille.

The sides of the car denotes a prominently large body, with the bulky lower sides and wheel arches, along with black strips. On the greenhouse area, the pillars are finished in black, and two rear-view mirrors can be seen on the front, with painted shells and black borders. A "4x4 OFFROAD" badge can be seen on the black stripes, just on the front doors.

The rear of the car is very simple, featuring the large bumper and a set of rectangle tail lights surrounded by black trims. The rear compartment features the manufacturer's emblem on the center, a black strip displaying the vehicle's name on the passenger side just above the license plate, and the rear compartment handle on the driver side. Small, square-shaped exhaust pipes can be seen below the bumper.

The car may spawn with a single color or a two-tone color, where the secondary one is applied on the lower side of the front bumper, the portion below the side black strips, and the rear bumper. The vehicle shares the same rims as the Primo, being the same rims loosely resembling the "Outsider" tuner wheels available in Los Santos Customs.

The Seminole is an average SUV in every way, both in design and performance. The top speed is average for a vehicle of its class, but acceleration is mediocre, leading to the Seminole feeling sluggish and heavy during normal driving. Handling is a bit better, as the vehicle does not suffer from any oversteer or understeer, and it is very stable at high speeds. Like its real life counterpart, it does well off-road, thanks to its AWD drivetrain. The Seminole has a semi-stiff suspension which helps it stay level when cornering, but it has just enough travel to make the vehicle drive smoothly on uneven terrain.

The Seminole is powered by a small Inline-4 engine, but gives the car a boost in its acceleration. Its acceleration time is noticeably quicker than direct competitors like the Cavalcade or the Baller

Originally, the car could not be stored in a garage. This was corrected in patch 1.10.



  • The default radio stations of the Seminole are The Lowdown 91.1 and Space 103.2.
  • The car's name is a play on its real-life counterpart, as both the Cherokee and the Seminole were Native American tribes in the southeastern United States.
  • The description on Southern San Andreas Super Autos mentions that the Seminole "was derived from a signature car model and encased in a flimsy bodywork".
    • This could be a nod to the origins of the Jeep Grand Cherokee, which was built as a successor of the Jeep Cherokee (XJ) and used a unibody chassis (opposed to the body-on-frame construction).

  • This vehicle does not have reverse lights, just like many other cars in the game.
  • Strangely, the vehicle does not have any B-pillars, like the Serrano. This can be noticed quite easily when both doors from one side of the car are removed. This was most likely a developer's oversight.
  • In the center of the rear floor, there is a floor mat with the word DF8-90 printed on it, likely a reused asset from the car of the same name.
