The Anchor is a vehicle in Saints Row, Saints Row 2, Saints Row: The Third and Saints Row IV.

Overview[]

The Anchor seats 2 people and frequently spawns around Stilwater, especially in the Downtown District, both driving, and parked.

These appear as part of the Escort Activity and must be avoided, and during the Mayhem Activity in Saints Row, where they attempt to footage and warrant more cash than most other vehicles. In the mission "Appointed Defender" there are several parked at the courthouse. When Jane Valderama is called as a homie, she arrives in an Anchor.

It returns in Steelport also as a news van, as well as a standard van. It's also the only commercial van since the NRG V8 is not included in the game.
