The Vapid Unmarked Cruiser is, as the name suggests, an unmarked police sedan featured in Grand Theft Auto V.


Grand Theft Auto V

The Unmarked Cruiser is based on the second-generation Stanier (much like the Police Cruiser, Sheriff Cruiser, and Taxi), operated by the Los Santos Police Department. The vehicle is distinctive by having a slick-top design, unlike its marked counterparts, and instead, it features LED lightbars inside the cabin, much like the FIB Buffalo and the FIB Granger. The Unmarked Cruiser is available in Black, Grey, Silver, Dark Red, and Dark Blue, with black trim.

Due to the fact that it shares the design with the Police Cruiser and Sheriff Cruiser, the vehicle is still equipped with the door search lamps and has a pushbar. The rear of the vehicle is still marked as "Police Cruiser". However, has no exterior markings, which is supposed to make it harder to be detected as a police vehicle by civilians and to offer some degree of anonymity to officers.

Entering this vehicle awards the player a Carbine Rifle.

According to the Rockstar Games Social Club website and handling files, the Unmarked Cruiser has similar performance to the Police Cruiser, which means a decent top speed with average handling, decent braking, average acceleration, and great durability thanks to its body-on-chassis construction. Apart from a slightly higher top speed due to reduced drag, the vehicle performs identically to its marked counterpart.

Much like all the Stanier-based cars, it is powered by a twin-cam Inline-4 laid longitudinally, coupled to a 5-speed gearbox in an front engine, rear wheel drive configuration.

Grand Theft Auto V

The Unmarked Cruiser is, among the Stanier-based cars, the rarest vehicle, appearing on certain locations and under restricted circumstances.

  • One way to obtain the vehicle is during Barry's Grass Roots sidemission as Franklin (specifically Grass Roots - The Pickup). Go to the highlighted green marker on the map, and some police officers in an Unmarked Cruiser will be waiting to ambush the player. Kill the cops and save it at a safehouse or garage. The police will not pursue the player until they enter the vehicle required by Barry, meaning that obtaining the Unmarked Cruiser in this fashion is incredibly easy.
  • The vehicle will spawn during the Property Management sidemission for Smoke on the Water (Again, as Franklin). When Franklin is asked to drive a Smoke on the Water van, he will occasionally be chased by an Unmarked Cruiser. If the player has to deliver the car to the shop and there is no time limit countdown on screen, they can be sure there is a Cruiser parked nearby which can be obtained if they take out the two officers inside.
  • 2-4 officers patrol the train station at night from 22:00 - 04:00. Note that this location is also shared with other police cars, therefore it might not always spawn.
  • Can rarely be seen pursuing NPC cars near LSPD Auto Impound.

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • Ambushes the player in certain cargo missions when reaching and entering the cargo vehicle. It cannot be kept in a garage by the player, however.
  • Seen during "Defend Product" missions where the police raid a business. These can't be entered by the player though.


Grand Theft Auto V

  • Due to the strong similarity with the FIB Buffalo in the LED lights inside the cabin, the Unmarked Cruiser if often confused as an undercover vehicle. Most of the equipments, such the pushbar and the rear lamps, are not unusual for an unmarked vehicle but is rather rare for an undercover vehicle.
  • The rear emergency lights, inside the vehicle, are actually a different shade of red and blue than any other LED lights in the game.
  • Uniformed officers patrol in this vehicle around the train station, which means it is sometimes used as an unmarked traffic enforcement vehicle.
  • Along with the VCPD Cheetah, it is one of the few law enforcement vehicles which does not use police schemes. Instead, it will spawn with basic traffic colors.
    • The player cannot, however, enter at Los Santos Customs to repair or change colors on this car.
