A Sandking in GTA Vice City (Rear quarter view).

The Sandking is a high-performance, off-road truck. Introduced in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, the Sandking has made repeated appearances in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories.





Similar (but not identical) to the Rancher, but the Sandking appears to be based on a 1984-1996 Jeep Cherokee (XJ) (more so than a second generation Chevrolet K5 Blazer) with customizations similar to a Bowler Wildcat. In all of its appearances, the Sandking is depicted with myriad modifications commonly associated with other high performance off-road vehicles such as the Dune and Bandito. It has the words "Sand Masters Cup" written on the side; in addition to its racing liveries, the Sandking boasts large MMT branded offroad wheels, a large spoiler, and several air scoops on the hood lid and roof.


The Sandking has excellent handling, due to its elevated suspension system, and the strong grip of its MMT tires. The vehicle is capable of high speeds, while staying easily controllable. In GTA San Andreas, it is sometimes available with hydraulics common in lowriders.


  • In GTA San Andreas, the Sandking is a great choice for off-roading, street racing, mountain climbing, cruising, launching off ramps and picking up girlfriends (as it boosts the player's sex appeal to about a 75% level, undamaged).
  • Due to programming error, the PC version of the GTA San Andreas's Sandking lacks a sheen, and features white squares in place of sponsorship stickers.
  • The Sandking plays the following radio stations by default when entered:
