Vehicle Types

There are three general categories of Generic Vehicles: Cars, Trucks/Vans, and Motorcycles. These categories exist most for the sake of organising the list. The Drive skill applies equally to all three.

 

Cars

Subcompact cars are smaller versions of Compact cars: two doors, low horsepower, and little cargo space. Subcompacts often have trouble keeping up with highway speeds, but they’re perfectly suited for big-city driving because they can park in small spaces. They’re often boxy and square-looking.

  • Chevrolet Vega GT, Ford Pinto Runabout, AMC Gremlin, Ford Fiesta, Opel Corsa

 

Compact cars are built to be small and run on relatively little gas. They come standard with four doors and have enough horsepower to maintain highway speeds as well as having a moderate amount of cargo space. You can buy two-door models as well (see Templates). They’re often snub-nosed, having shortened front and rear ends.

  • Honda Civic, Ford Focus, Nash Rambler, Chevrolet Corvair Monza 900, Volkswagon Golf MK6

 

Sedans are full-sized cars with four doors. They are built for city and highway driving, and have generous trunks/boots. They have the familiar look of American cars: long hoods and trunks.

  • Opel Kadett, Lincoln Town Car, Chevrolet Cavalier, Ford Crown Victoria, Mercedes E55 AMG

 

Limousines are “stretched” sedans; they have an extra set of doors in the middle and, thus, extended space in the centre that usually contains two sets of bench seats that face each other. Stretched Sedans don’t fit in standard parking spaces because they are about one-third longer than regular sedans, but they can maintain highway speeds without much trouble. They suck up a lot of gas.

 

Sports Cars are built for minimal passenger and cargo space in order to make room for powerful engines and reduce the vehicle’s weight. They generally have long hoods and shortened rear-ends.

  • Lamborghini Diablo, Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, Lotus Elan M100, Porche 911

 

Wagons, also called Station Wagons, are essentially sedans with a covered back end instead of a trunk. This increases their storage space and/or adds an extra set of seats. In all other respects, they’re just like sedans.

  • Volkswagon Jetta, Buick Sport Wagon, Chevrolet Bel Air, Volvo 240, Toyota Camry, Ford Taurus

 

Trucks

Pickup Trucks are larger and taller than most cars and have an open bed on the back, called a “flat bed,” instead of back seats. They are built to haul cargo, and suitable for driving both in the city and on the highway.

  • Ford F150, GMC C1500, Chevrolet Silverado, Dodge Ram, Nissan Titan, Toyota Tundra, Suzuki Equator

 

Cube Van and Shipping Trucks―also called “5 Tonnes” or “10 Tonnes,” respectively―have cabs so high that you have to step up into them, and covered back ends with a single, locking door at the back. They are built to transport cargo. Therefore, they’re built for highway speeds, and although they take up much more room than cars, they’re regularly used to transport goods within cities, as well. There’s no inherent difference between the two other than size.

SUVs, or “Sport-Utility Vehicles,”are a little higher off the ground than cars and often have four-wheel drive, like trucks. but they’re covered and contain one, large interior space filled primarily with seating as well as a large storage area at the back with a vertical window.

  • Ford Explorer, Jeep Cherokee, Toyota Land Cruiser, Land Rover Range Rover, Audi Q7, Volvo XC90

 

Armoured Trucks are used to transport expensive cargo such as jewels, precious metals, or far more often than anything else, money. They have two seats in the cab and a storage area separated by hardened steel walls. The single door at the back has an integrated, mechanical lock that is very hard to pick (Disable Device DC 30).

 

Vans and Buses

Minivans are, in essence, larger Wagons. They are taller and roomier, contain three rows of seats, and have a storage area roughly the same size as a Sedan’s trunk/boot. Minivans are notoriously top-heavy and largely associated with suburbanites.

  • Kia Sedona, Volkwagon Vanagon Syncro, Ford Aerostar, Toyota Van Wagon 4WD, GMC Safari

 

Vans are box-shaped, fully covered vehicles with two seats up front and empty space in the back. There is no barrier between the seats and the storage area. Vans tend to have little if any hood.

  • Dodge Sprinter, Chevrolet Nomad, Chrysler Voyager, Ford Econovan, Suzuki Supercarry, Toyota Probox

 

Small Buses are extra wide and about twice as long as Sedans. They have a single driver’s seat and many rows of bench seats for passengers. These bench seats rarely provide seat belts. They are most often used as local school buses.

Touring Buses are extra wide and about twice as long as Sedans. The driver and passenger seats are separate from the living area, which usually has two rooms―a bedroom and a living room―as well as a very small washroom. Touring Buses are most often used by bands or other entertainers who spend large amounts of time on the road. The Cargo on a touring bus might seem low, but that amount is in addition to all the weight of the living quarters in the back.

City Buses are extra wide and three times as long as Sedans. There is a single driver’s seat and many rows of passenger seating as well as standing room and overhead bars and straps to hold onto. City buses are built specifically for public transportation in urban areas. Although city buses are built to take a great deal of weight, they have no actual cargo space. The weight is assumed to be people.

 

Motorcycles

Scooters are essentially low-powered motorcycles with a step-through design and a flat place to place the rider’s feet. They aren’t powerful enough to keep up with highway speeds, but they’re entirely equipped for the city. Many modern scooters have electrical engines.

  • Vespa Primavera, Kymco G3, Honda Beat, Piaggo MP3, Aprillia SR50, Lambretta Luna, Yamaha Spy

 

Street Bikes are primarily designed for transportation, thus they have slick tires and minimal shocks. They are quite capable of maintaining highway speeds and, because of their relatively small size, quite convenient in cities when it comes to parking.

  • Harley-Davidson Softail, BMW Cruiser, Honda Gold Wing, Yamaha Royal Star Venture

 

Dirt Bikes are primarily designed for off-road and recreational riding, so they have extra-powerful shocks. You can ride them in the city, of course, but they’re over-engineered for the job and the pavement would quickly wear away their knobby tires.

  • Yamaha YZ 250F, Kawasaki ZX-10R, Honda CRF150F, BMW K1600GT, Ducati Diavel, MV Agusta F3

 

Sport Bikes are primarily designed for, as their name suggests, sheer speed on pavement. They have slick tires but also super-charged engines and aerodynamic design.

  • Suzuki GSX-R, BWM S1000RR, Honda CB750, Kawasaki Ninja, Triumph Daytona
