Description

Design

The truck has styling very reminiscent of the third generation Ford SVT Lightning concept, most noticeably in the front bumper, grille (in shape, not including the split grille), hood, and back end; the color varieties it appears in are like most modern Ford F-150s though. It has a Chevy-like, horizontally-split grille and headlights that are similar to the 2007 Chevrolet Avalanche. The Supercharged 5.7L V8 engine, is also similar to the Lightning concept but with a larger displacement V8 (the Lightning had a 5.4L V8).

The Contender comes with a variety of bed modifications, including one that makes it look more like a Chevy Avalanche. There is a rare "rally" version of the Contender that comes with a grille guard, a roll bar and roof lights.

Performance

Despite having a Supercharged engine, it's acceleration and top speed are unimpressive, and can be equally matched by the Bobcat but the top speed is higher.

Variants

A Supercharged variant, driven by the McReary Mob.

A green "Supercharge" Contender is driven by the McReary Mob that can be found in Steinway. It has huge silver bull bars, four vapid lights on top and adorns a special green color.

Trivia

  • In the BradyGames guide, the Contender is occasionally referred to as the E109, though the game never calls it the E109. In the game's files, however, the model for the Contender is called E109. It hints that it is a beta name for the Contender.
  • In a car commercial on CNT (Sully's Auto Mart), a white Contender is referred to as the EXT, which could be another beta name for the truck.
  • In GTA IV, after collecting all thirty cars for Stevie he agrees to purchase cars from Niko Bellic, with the Contender fetching $2,500.
  • The Contender doesn't have any white reverse lights, or any number plates.
  • The default radio station in the Contender is Liberty Rock Radio 97.8.

The Contender was a republic-class battle ship used by the Republic during the clone wars. It was later destroyed by Federal Hand.

History

During the clone wars, the Contender was commanded by Jedi master Plo Koon during the time of war. Master Koon used this ship during the battle of Coruscant to help try to rescue the chancellor, but the ship Federal Hand attacked it before it could do anything. The two ships waged a massive battle with one another, each taking heavy damage. Sadly Master Koon saw that Federal Hand was too powerful for them and informed the crew that they had to escape. The clones could see that the Jedi was right, their shields were destroyed and they were next. As master Koon escaped the clone's got to the escape pods, but a handful of the crew stayed to buy some time. As the Jedi and the clone's escaped, Contender was destroyed by a massive attack on the bridge.
