"No-nonsense, all style. The man's/woman's van for all occasions. As long as those occasions are commercial trade, hauling all your over-sized family around, or bussing in the wrecking crew"
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Bravado Youga (pronounced yoga) is a full-size van modified for racing appearing in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.


Grand Theft Auto V

The Youga is based on a 1994-2003 Dodge Ram Van, which has, and can further be equipped with performance modifications including removed rear seats, racing wheels, and a lowered suspension. The van also has blacked-out headlights. Unlike the real life inspiration, the van has two sliding doors instead of one. The stacked headlights and front grille appear to be inspired by those on the 1979-1985 Ram Van.

Grand Theft Auto V

The Youga is powered by a high-performance transversely laid, single-camshaft Inline-4 in a front engine, rear-wheel drive configuration. Even with added performance parts, the van remains reluctant when accelerating. Top speed is rather low. In comparison, the Duneloader can reach higher speeds. One feature of this car is its weight and durability. Both are very high, giving it the ability to ram vehicles without slowing down much or taking damage. Despite its bulky weight, it has reasonable handling at medium speeds, although it can face difficulties at higher speeds, especially due to its poor braking distance.

The vehicle has two different badgings: one stating to have a 5.0 (5.0L) Turbo-D (Turbo Diesel) engine and other stating to have a 5000 TTD Turbocharged engine. Combining both badgings and the engine model will result in a single definition that states it is powered by a 5.0L Twin Turbocharged Diesel, single-camshaft Inline-4.

  • The wheels found on the Youga resemble RS Watanabe 8-spoke wheels. The same wheel design can be found on the Warrener and Futo.
  • Even if the Youga has been applied with the panel van conversion modification through Los Santos Customs, bullets hitting the parts where the windows would be would still behave as if the windows got shattered, and the bullets would still go through. This is probably an oversight, as the conversion does not work properly.
  • Unfortunately, it is impossible to have passengers in the back. Both sliding side doors and back doors are unopenable, and there are no seats in the back. This is most likely for accommodation of a roll cage.
  • Because it has a diesel engine, the Youga does not have a blow-off valve, even if turbo tuning is added in Los Santos Customs.
  • The default radio stations for the Youga are Radio Mirror Park, Vinewood Boulevard Radio and Los Santos Rock Radio.
  • The engine noise on the Youga was altered in the enhanced version as with the Burrito, Speedo and the Pony.

Cultural References

  • The van's modifications come from "Dajiban" (Japanese romanization of "Dodge Van") racing, which is a spec race of Dodge Ram vans that was started by Japanese motorcycle racers who ignored rules on Ebisu Circuit and raced the vans they used to haul their bikes. Many of the vans used to haul the motorcycles were short-body Dodge Ram vans which were originally imported to Japan by the US Military, but then were sold off due to age. Most, if not all Dajiban racing vans are modified in a similar way to the ones in-game. A yearly Dajiban race, Dodge Van Grand Prix (often shortened to D-Van GP) takes place at Ebisu Circuit.
  • The van is named after Hodori Youga, Setagaya, in Tokyo, Japan, where I-5 Corporation, an importer of American vehicles specializing in importation and modification of Dodge Ram vans is located. Although the company imports other American vehicles, the Dodge van continues to be a speciality due to the motorsport and continuing demand after the US Military sold all of its imports. The dealership of the importer is dubbed "Youga Base" by racers and the nickname is often displayed in stickers on the vans.
  • The vehicle's appearance with these modifications in-game is a reference to the emerging popularity of similarly modifying then racing Dodge Ram Vans in the US, which began around 2010 when western automotive blogs and news sites first reported on it. Popularity further increased in the western world when videos [1] explaining the phenomenon were uploaded to YouTube.
