Related Gavril Roamer

The Gavril D-Series is a medium pickup truck built by Gavril between 1988 and 1994. It shares a frame with the Gavril Roamer, as well as a previous generation of D-series.[1] It was the first vehicle to be developed for BeamNG's soft-body physics engine, dating back to 2012.

As of BeamNG.drive 0.5.0, the D-Series is the vehicle with the most customization options.


Development

It's quite slow and handles poorly, but it more than makes up for it with durability and brute force.

—Gabester, BeamNG Dev Blog, 8 June 2012

Even before its first appearance on the Blog, the D15 had already been showcased in a YouTube video demonstrating the soft-body physics which the BeamNG team had been developing at that point.[2] It had been the first vehicle to be created for the software, although the interior was not modeled in that video and a color map may not have been added yet, either. The photos from the Blog, as well as a subsequent YouTube update,[3] shows both of these implemented.

Ever since its release in 0.3.0, it's been the only official pickup truck in the game; its counterpart, the Gavril Roamer, while sharing a complete undercarriage, is different both stylistically and functionally. Updates have been made over time to increase the variety of options for this model, however. Notable ones include new configurations (starting in 0.3.1, with "Sport" and "Drift Missile" variants added), extended cab models, heavy duty (D35) models (both in 0.5.0, at which point the name changed to D-Series), crew cab models (in 0.9.0), various new parts and props, and new engines and powertrain updates.

Overview of models

Stock models of the D-Series share the same basic characteristics. They have relatively good crash safety, with the bed and hood sections capable of absorbing the brunt of an impact, and the passenger compartment remaining in good shape to protect the occupants. The suspension is relatively soft, allowing for a comfortable ride across bumpy terrain at the expense of sharp, responsive controls. They have a tendency to bounce and hop in extreme cornering.

I6 RWD

The I6 RWD model is the basic regular cab D15. It is powered by an inline-6 engine that produces 189 horsepower and comes with a 5-speed manual transmission. This model also has 16" steel wheels and the default grey interior, and weighs about 1850 kg.

V8 RWD

The V8 RWD model consists of the basic regular cab D-Series. This configuration swaps out the I6 for a 4.5L V8 engine with 230 horsepower, and it has two stages of engine tuning available. Stage 1 adds about 40 hp, while Stage 2 pushes output to more than 420 horsepower. There are 5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic transmission options.

D35 V8 RWD Crew Cab

This variant is identical in some ways to the D15 Crew Cab, although it is built for more heavy duty work, replacing the standard live rear-axle suspension with a heavy duty live-axle dually. It has special fender flares to cover the added width of all rear wheels. This variant is the regular I6 D15 with a lengthened frame and body. There is space behind the front bench for storage or passengers, which can be accessed by means of suicide doors added behind the front doors. It also has amber roof lights and "D35" lettering on the front fenders also has a 5.5L V8 engine

D35 V8 AWD Crew Cab

This variant is identical to the D35 V8 RWD Crew Cab, although it has all-wheel drive.

D35 Chief Rancher

Luxury version of the D35 V8 AWD Crew Cab with a retro-styled paintjob.

V8 4WD

The V8 4WD model is identical in suspension and body style to the RWD models, but installed is a front transfer case to convert the truck to four-wheel drive, allowing greater off road ability. It also has a brown interior. This model comes out in D15 Regular Cab, D15 Extended Cab, and D35 Extended Cab models, with each variant having their respective differences.

Ever since the first release of BeamNG.drive, the standard V8 4WD model is the vehicle the player starts with upon entering a level, albeit in a slightly different configuration.

V8 4WD Off-Road

The Off-Road variant is drastically different to the stock D15, combining the front transfer case and V8 engine of the roadgoing 4WD model with an overhauled suspension setup, including stronger but softer coils, an off-road front sway bar, and thicker, taller tires to allow great versatility when on harsh terrain. It also features custom limited-slip differentials with a tighter final drive, and a faster steering rack with a racing wheel. As for external differences, the front is protected by a small tubular frame, with a roll bar consisting of a similar tube frame spanning half of the bed's length at the rear. These additions heighten the vehicle's safety, offering increased protection in frontal impacts and rollovers. The fenders are also widened with black fender flares. This variant comes with the D15 only (both Reg. and Ext. models) and has a black interior.

As of the Pre-Race Update, the Off-Road D15 comes with Stage 2 engine tuning and the 5-speed manual transmission, bumping horsepower to over 475 and allowing it to reach 60 mph in 4.4 seconds. The off-road additions bring its weight to over 2100 kg, the heaviest in the D15 lineup, and the Extended Cab variant weighs nearly 120 kg more.

V8 4WD Off-Road Extended cab

This variant is identical to the V8 4WD Off-Road, although it has an extended cab.

D35 "Pig"

The D35 "Pig" variant is similar to the Off-Road model, although there are some major differences. The normal pickup bed and rear bumper have been replaced with a wooden flatbed. The spare tire and a larger fuel tank have been placed on this flatbed. The rollbar has been redesigned so that it's frame mountings lie behind the rear wheels. The live-axle rear suspension has been replaced with a rather roll-prone three-link setup. The front fenders are just like those on a regular D15. Also, the front bumper has been removed. This model has a brown interior.

With all of these changes, this model is the second heaviest D35 in the lineup, weighing in at 2033 kg. It is also very good at off roading.

V8 RWD Sport

The Sport version of the D15 features an overhauled "sport" suspension system, sport 17" wheels, body-colored bumpers, red interior, a limited-slip differential, and Stage 1 engine tuning. A tighter steering rack is also included.

V8 RWD Custom

The Custom version takes the Sport and adds a custom racing steering wheel, custom 18" alloy wheels, body-colored grille, blue interior, Stage 2 engine tuning, and a 5-speed manual transmission. The D15 Custom takes around 5.8 seconds to reach 60 mph, having difficulty putting the power to the ground due to being RWD.
