Vehicles are machines that can be used as means of transportation for people or cargo over the Chernarusian landscape. Salvageable vehicles can be found in various states of damage, with various parts missing or broken. These parts will have to be replaced or repaired and fuel will have to be added before survivors can go anywhere.
Vehicles can provide great speed and cargo capacity benefits, they can be used for cover and to run down enemies provided that the speed of the vehicle is enough to deal sufficient damage. However, they make you a very visible target, require fuel and maintenance in order for the player to operate them, and due to their size, might have trouble to maneuver in urban areas.
