Design and Performance


The Bison is a pick up truck that belongs to the vans vehicle class in the game. It is manufactured by Bravado. Its design is based on the fourth generation Dodge Ram. The standard variant of the Bison can accommodate 6 people with two in front and four people on the cargo bed. It has a muscular design with a chrome finish front grille that carries the Bravado logo. The headlights are rectangular with the turn indicators stretching onto the front edges of the vehicle. Below the headlights are fog lights attached to the bumpers of this vehicle. The tail lights are placed similarly to the headlights but are longer and broader and have no reverse lights. The rear bumper has a chrome finish above which is the Bravado logo with a 4v4 lettering also with a chrome finish. The Bison does not have any modifications that can be made to the outer body except for respray, wheels and lights.



The Bravado Bison is packed with power and is specially used in a mission to pull down a house by attaching the house’s support to the vehicle using the winch on the vehicle. It has poor acceleration but great handling and a good enough top speed for a pickup truck/van. Making turns at high speeds feels rather tough and heavy as the vehicle also lifts during high-speed cornering. This vehicle has a 4-wheel drive layout and is with a V8 engine that is advertised to produce 6000 horsepower. This vehicle can easily climb hills and steep slopes due to the layout and power.
