4-door offroad SUT/SUV
The Mesa (Merryweather) in GTA V is a specialized variant of the standard Mesa, resembling the Jeep J8, and is predominantly used by Merryweather Security. This version boasts off-road enhancements, including reinforced bumpers, skid plates, a winch, side steps, and a robust tubular frame with a roof rack and rooftop high-power lights.
It has increased wheel arch clearance and can accommodate larger wheels and tires, with a snorkel for water wading. The vehicle may appear with or without a solid roof, which can be painted separately. It features a primary color on the body and roof and a secondary color on the exo-skeleton, bumpers, and spare tire rim, sharing wheel design with the Sandking XL.
The Mesa (Merryweather) offers slightly lower performance than the standard variant but compensates with superior off-road capabilities and durability. It can achieve decent top speeds, although its high center of gravity makes it prone to tipping over, a problem that can be mitigated by lowering the suspension.
The vehicle's robust tubular exoskeleton makes it highly resilient to damage. It boasts impressive torque, enabling it to conquer steep hills, surpassing the standard Mesa in this regard. However, despite its snorkel, it cannot be submerged in deep water due to the exhaust's low positioning. The vehicle is powered by a V8 engine with all-wheel drive.
