The Pontiac GTO State Cruiser is a 2005 Pontiac GTO fitted with fictitious modifications for use as a police unit.

It is the standard issue patrol car utilised by the Rockport Police Department and Palmont Police Department. The police unit is based on the Pontiac GTO, that has been modified with police equipment and performance upgrades to meet the needs of extended pursuits.

There are two models of the State Cruiser; the standard issue model fitted with a full police package and the unmarked Undercover State Cruiser.

The unit is light but resilient resulting in an persistent means of pursuit against high durability vehicles. The power mixed with torque produced by the engine can become too excessive at low speeds and result in very little grip.
