The Crane and Box Utility Truck are service trucks in GTA V. They belong to the Utility vehicle class in the game and can be found in the Industrial areas of Los Santos and Blaine County as well as at the Los Santos International Airport.
Large utility van
The Utility Truck in GTA V draws its inspiration from the International 4700 Series, often employed as a service or utility truck, including cherry pickers. This vehicle is built on a substantial main chassis closely resembling that of the Stockade, sharing common features such as the grille, headlights, cowl, and rear-view mirrors.
Its overall design, encompassing the front bumper, windshield, and cabin, gives a straightforward and utilitarian appearance, contrasting with the Stockade's rugged and fortified profile.
The Utility Truck is presented in two primary models, each offering three distinct rear compartment configurations, resulting in six different variations of the same vehicle. The first model operates as a crane truck/cherry picker, featuring a non-functional crane mounted at the rear and operated by Nowinski Construction Corporation.
The second model serves as a cargo/utility truck, designed to transport additional equipment as extras, and is operated by Jonny Shapiro Gas Specialist.
The Utility Truck in GTA V strikes a balance between speed and durability, making it a favorable choice. While not as robust as the Phantom or Packer, it still holds its own. With decent acceleration and a satisfactory top speed, it performs adequately.
Notably, its engine and fuel tank are less exposed compared to other trucks in the game, rendering it a solid option for vehicle collisions. Under the hood, it boasts a formidable 8000cc (8L) turbocharged Inline-4 engine, delivering ample power for acceleration and maintaining speed, even in the face of collisions.
