The Vapid Steed is a box truck featured in Grand Theft Auto IV.


Grand Theft Auto IV

The Steed closely resembles a 1992-1996 Ford Econoline delivery truck with fully-amber turn signal lights from the 2003-2007 E-Series, and as such may be seen as a "successor" of the 3D Universe Mule, which was also depicted as a Ford E-Series box truck (since the Mule reappears in the HD Universe alongside the Steed; however, based on the Isuzu Elf).

The Steed comes with various company names on the sides, such as, 24/7 Supermarkets, Krapea, Liberty Tree, Logger Beer, Raine, and Üder Milkén. As is with the majority of delivery vehicles, the Steed may also been seen with graffiti on its cargo hold. It also can have a blank variant with no company names or graffiti.

The Steed has a minor difference compared to other cars. The front license plate is notably smaller than the rest of Liberty City's license plates.

The Steed, like most large vehicles, has poor acceleration and handling, but it has a very good top speed for a vehicle of its size. The braking is also very good. Despite its height, the Steed does not tip over easily.

The vehicle is stated to be powered by an intercooled V8 engine, although its current engine model is that of a turbocharged Inline-4. Said engine is coupled to a 5-speed gearbox in a rear-wheel drive layout.
