I just stuffed a level 4 engine on this thing (only costs 6700) and I started noticing the front tires spin.    Put it bumper to wall and floored it, and sure enough it's 4X4.     I honestly always thought this was 2WD?

 

Any other cars/trucks that appear 2WD with stock performance but clearly shows their 4X4 status when upgraded?    Would a Sadler actually be 4X4 if I upgraded it?

No, Picador was always 4x4. Vehicles are what they are, upgrades don't change 2wd to 4wd

You just don't notice cause it didn't have the power to make the front wheels spin from a standstill. Take them off-road and you can tell 2wd vs 4x4

Good find. I think the 9F is a 4x4 when fully modded

Yea that's what I meant to say.

 

I figured upgrades didn't change the dive train, but stock the Picador seems to have very little power to the front so it looked 2WD, but now with a upgraded engine, it shows it's 4X4 much clearer.

 

I just want to know what other cars are like this.

Yes it is.

 

Just do what I do and drive head first into a wall and hold the gas see which tires spin lol.  Yeah it sounds stupid but it works.

Sandler, Bison, Picarod, Stratum and more cars are 4x4.... Maybe they fix them in one of older patch, dont know, but if you find one of them on street, just stole it and drive next to the wall and hit gas, if all 4 vehicles spin = 4x4 or not ? I tested them with this method.

Odd any time I got the Sadler stuck on a hill the front tires did nothing.   I thought it was 2WD or at least needed a engine upgrade to get enough power to the front wheels.

They have always been.

OP this is common knowledge.

Although the Picador takes styling and other cues from the GMC Sprint and Chevrolet El Camino, they were all 2WD.

 

Except, for the Holden Overlander Ute. (Holden is what GMC is sold as in Aussieland.)  The Holden is indeed 4x4.

Being that Rockstar is an English company, they likely took the transmission and chassis from the Holden, and the body of the El Camino with some styling from all 3 and mixed it together.
