The Guardian has very high defense.

The Vapid Guardian is a heavy-duty pick-up truck featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Heists Update. Overall, despite being a heavy vehicle, the Guardian has excellent maneuverability and speed due to its all-wheel-drive layout (35% front, 65% rear) and 6-speed transmission turbo diesel engine.

It has reasonable durability against gunshots, traffic collisions and is very competent at off-roading. Players who stand on the back of the vehicle won't fall off when it moves, allowing them to use any weapon.

Sandking XL

  • How to get: Can be stolen/found, Southern S.A. Super Autos
  • Price: $45,000
  • Top speed: 99.00 mph (159.32 km/h)
The Sandking XL does not do very well on actual roads.

The Vapid Sandking XL is a four-door off-road pickup featured in GTA V and GTA Online. This truck is fairly heavy and has poor handling on roads, however, its powerful engine allows it to get over obstacles and even other cars easily.

It is recommended to fit the Sandking with bulletproof tires, as its tires are exposed and easy to shoot at.


  • How to get: Can be stolen/found, Southern S.A. Super Autos
  • Price: $30,000
  • Top speed: 98.50 mph (158.52 km/h)
The Bison is cheap and effective.

The Bravado Bison is a midsize double-cab pickup truck that appears in GTA V and GTA Online. The Bison is a fast truck and is capable of reaching a good top speed, however, its acceleration is rather low. Thanks to its 4WD (20% front, 80% rear), the Bison has good offroad capability and can climb steep hills with ease.


  • How to get: Southern S.A. Super Autos
  • Price: $345,000
  • Top speed: 116.75 mph (187.89 km/h)
Kamacho Gtao Front
Overall, the Kamacho is the best mudding truck in GTA 5.

The Kamacho is designed to race in off-road terrain. It has high torque and ground clearance and can tackle even the roughest terrains with a torque distribution of 50/50. Compared to other off-road trucks, it has great top speed and acceleration, as well as good handling. Durability is decent and can be further improved with the addition of bullbars. Overall, Kamacho is the best mudding truck in GTA 5 and also one of GTA 5 best trucks in 2021.

Caracara 4x4

  • How to get: Southern S.A. Super Autos
  • Price: $875,000
  • Top speed: 103.25 mph (166.16 km/h)
Caracara 4x4
Caracara 4x4 and the Kamacho are about the same tier.

The Vapid Caracara 4x4 is a four-door pick-up truck featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of The Diamond Casino & Resort update. The best part of the Caracara 4x4 is its handling - due to the 4WD layout, the car feels planted and does not have any chance to spinout whatsoever. Its speed is decent, enough to keep up with other faster off-road vehicles.

Drivers can navigate through rough, uneven terrain easily with the car's heavy-duty suspension. Just remember to equip the car with bulletproof tires, as they are prime targets for gunfire.

2. Which is the rarest truck in GTA 5?

Maibatsu Mule (with ramp door) is currently the rarest truct in GTA 5 because you can't acquire this vehicle for your own.

It is actually a surprise that such a common vehicle like the Mule is considered the rarest. This truck was cut from the base GTA game and brought back in GTA Online. It is a unique version of the Maibatsu Mule that only spawns during a single resupply mission during the Gunrunning update. You can only use that truck during the mission and cannot steal it to own.

Mule Ramp Door
Overall, this is one of the few unobtainable cars in GTA Online.

3. Which is the fastest truck in GTA Online?

While the Kamacho is one of the GTA 5 best trucks, it is actually not the fastest. The truck with the highest top speed in GTA Online is the monster truck Bravado Sasquatch. It can reach 121.25 mph (195.13 km/h).

It is part of the arena war update and can only be acquired by upgrading the Rat-Truck vehicle stock model to a custom variant at the Arena Workshop.
