Here’s Every DiRT 5 Car Class


CODEMASTERS IS continuing to trickle out details about their upcoming off-road racer, and today they’ve provided us with the DiRT 5 car class list, detailing all thirteen DiRT 5 car classes that you’ll be able to race in when the game launches in three months.

Variety is a massive part of our vision for DIRT 5, and we’ve made sure that this is represented in the game’s car classes and car roster.” said Stuart Boyd, DiRT 5 producer, “One moment, you’re tackling the most challenging terrain in a huge rock bouncer; the next, you’re blasting through a multi-surface circuit race with rallycross cars heavy on speed and grip; and then you’re carving a path through jungle-like routes with lively buggies and unlimited trucks.

Recently we’ve seen details about the story of DiRT 5 as well its career mode, with experienced voice actors Nolan North and Troy Baker taking the latest iteration of the DiRT series to the next level.

Check out the full DiRT 5 Car Class List below:

Cross Raid

Built specifically to overcome tough terrain, our Cross Raid class combines speed, strength and durability for some truly awesome trucks, including the Volkswagen Race Touareg 3 and the Laffite G-Tec X-Road, making its video game debut!

DiRT 5 Car Class

Rock Bouncer

Huge wheels, mad suspension, a big rollcage, and that’s about it. Oh, and you’re in the middle of it all. DIRT 5’s rock bouncer is purpose-built to conquer the most intimidating terrain. Use its traction, acceleration and flat-out stubbornness to beat all obstacles in our most extreme events.

DiRT 5 Car Class

Formula Off Road

This class houses our monstrous WS Auto Racing Titan – a true off-road beast with huge ridged tyres and incredible power. Ideal for DIRT 5’s Stampede events, the Formula Off Road class is where you go for something capable of traversing just about anything – and fast.

Rally Cross

A staple of DIRT games, the cars in our rally cross class are designed for all-terrain speed and getting sideways as soon as possible. Perfect for our tighter circuits and twisty corners, the likes of the Peugeot 208 WRX can turn on a dime and go from 0-60 almost as quickly.

Classic Rally

Roll back the years with iconic machines that popularised the concept of going fast and flat-out on any possible terrain. From the Fiat 131 Abarth Rally, to the Porsche 924 GTS Rallye, these off-road heroes will remind you that age is but a number with some serious power and performance.

80s Rally

A golden age of off-road racing, no DIRT game would be complete with some of the most successful off-road cars of the 1980s. We’re combining series favourites such as the Ford RS200, with incredible newcomers like the Porsche 959 Prodrive Rally Raid, for a class that just gets better over time.

90s Rally

Relive a time when off-road truly went mainstream, and recreate rivalries with the Subaru Impreza S4 and Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VI. We’re also giving some love to the more pint-sized extreme machines of the 1990s – keep an eye out for those!

Modern Rally

Take today’s powerful and incredibly engineered off-road racers into a completely new world. The likes of the Citroen C3 R5 represent the peak of modern mechanical race-craft, which you’re free to tear around DIRT 5’s unique extreme locations and events – both circuit and point-to-point.

DiRT 5 Car Class

Rally GT

Even the most refined GT cars built for tarmac can’t help but get DIRTy. The Rally GT class brings you these desirable cars kitted out with off-road specs, including the Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT-4, and Porsche 911 R-GT.

Sprint

The DIRT 5 class dedicated to our truly incredible sprint car, sporting wheels of all different sizes, huge wings and 900bhp – perfect to rip up dirt oval tracks and get sideways. A unique class for a unique racing experience.

DiRT 5 Car Class

Pre Runners

Think of the best road-going SUVs and all-purpose vehicles. Now think of them draped on off-road kit and suped up for extreme racing. That’s the Pre-Runners class, featuring incredible race-ready versions of the Aston Martin DBX and Cadillac Escalade 2020.

Unlimited

Trucks. Big trucks. Trucks built for the most demanding off-road events in the world. Trucks that’ll give you the confidence to floor it and power over all the rugged terrain DIRT 5 has to offer. Jump in the Jimco Unlimited Truck, Brenthel Industries Unlimited Truck and more and show the most challenging events who’s really in charge.

Super Lites

Low on excess weight, high on action, these rockets have power-to-weight ratios that’ll make your eyes water. Have fun taming the Ariel Nomad Tactical, Exomotive Exocet Off-Road, and more. These compact cars are built for all-terrain speed and an all-out assault on the senses.

DiRT 5 Car Class

Combine those car classes with our 10 brand new locations, huge slate of event types, and dynamic extreme weather which completely transforms the handling and gameplay feel.DiRT 5 producer Stuart Boyd continues, “The amount of different experiences to drive in just goes off the scale – we can’t wait for you take it all for a spin!

Which DiRT 5 car class takes your fancy the most? As Rally purists we’re most excited about the 80s, 90s and Modern rally, but it can be fun to mix it up a bit with the trucks and the buggies!

DiRT 5 will launch on October 9th on Windows PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles while arriving later in 2020 on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. For more info, head to the official DiRT website.
