"Redneck, trailer-trash wagon. Marry your sister types. Swamp trash and the like."
―GTA Vice City Website.

The Walton is a 50s style farm truck available in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories.


3D Universe

Throughout its appearance, the Walton resembles a 1955 Chevrolet Task Force with the front of a 1954/1955 Chevrolet Advance Design, it also features a small stake bed, which provides a decent sized flat surface area, making it a suitable sniper platform.

In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, the Walton often spawns with random cargo in the back, such as wood crates, cardboard boxes, or Carcer Gas propane tanks (which do not explode when shot). Sometimes the back is empty. When the tailgate is opened, none of the items in the back will fall out, even when driving off road or if the player crashes. There is also a junked Walton in front of Catalina's shack in Fern Ridge, Red County, San Andreas.

3D Universe

The Walton's road-going capabilities are, as expected, underwhelming. For Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, the Walton is only given slightly below-average acceleration and speed, and sluggish controls, owing to its age, weight and size. The Walton's engine power is even worse in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, where the truck often struggles up steep inclines. However, the Walton can be modified at Transfender with some additions. Despite being under powered, the Walton has decent off-roading capabilities, typical of any pickup truck in the game. Also, the vehicle is very sturdy, and can withstand a lot of damage.

It has the same engine sound as the Tractor and the Dozer.

Special Variants

In both Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, the color white is not normally available on any Walton, except during missions.

  • In GTA Vice City, four white Waltons will appear during "Gun Runner" as transport vehicles for a gang of gun runners which the player must eliminate. While the player can in fact the kill the driver of any of the Waltons with a sniper rifle and commandeer one, the player must destroy all the Waltons as well to complete the mission. A workaround to this is simple; the player will simply need to collect all of the weapons, then place the last working Walton in a garage and destroy it (thereby passing the mission). After the garage door is closed, the wrecked Walton will reappear in working order when the garage is reopened.
  • For Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, a white Walton is a crucial piece of equipment during "Madd Dogg", when the player must save a drunken Madd Dogg from falling to his death by taking the truck parked nearby and aligning the truck's box-filled bed with Madd Dogg as he is about to jump from a ledge. Once Madd Dogg lands on the bed, the player must then drive him to a rehabilitation clinic, completing the mission. The player may then store the truck in a garage. Alternately, the player can also fail the mission by opting not to save Madd Dogg and still acquire the truck nevertheless. The truck is also bulletproof.

Notable Owners



  • When entered in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, the Walton plays K-Rose by default.
  • The name could possibly come from a 1960s show, "The Waltons", as there is a truck in the show of the same design.


  • The Walton in GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories does not feature a tailgate like in GTA San Andreas.
  • The Walton in GTA San Andreas has a tractor-like diesel engine, and also lower performance, compared to the presumably gas-powered v8s in GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories. This could be due to regional factors, probably a real life reference to people swapping their truck engines out with tractor engines for better fuel economy.
  • In GTA Vice City Stories, Phil Cassidy claims that the truck uses manual transmission after crashing it into a wall during a mission "Cholo Victory".
