For the other uses of the term FIB, see FIB (disambiguation).

The Declasse FIB is a four-door law enforcement SUV, appearing in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.

Design

Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online

The FIB is a variant of the Granger modified for FIB/NOOSE use. The vehicle is identical to the regular version in terms of design and features, but comes with LED flashing red/blue lights on the grille, front windshield and rear window, as well as flashing tail lights and various antenna on the rear portion of the roof and on the rear left quarter. The FIB also has unknown window tint applied to its windows as default.[1]

The vehicle comes in a full black paintjob by default (although it is possible to respray it through Content Creator), with no markings or extra equipment due to its purpose. Its rims are also different compared to the regular Granger, being similar to the industrial rims seen in industrial vehicles such as the Mule, the Benson and the Phantom, albeit with a black finish.

In the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC versions of the game, the vehicle uses a 90's police siren, which is also used on the FIB Buffalo. This one cannot play a distorted sound, even if damaging or shooting the siren.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online

The FIB, along with the Sheriff SUV and the Park Ranger, is easily the best performing SUV in the game. It improves on the civilian vehicle in every way, with good acceleration (about on par with the Interceptor), and stiff suspension, which prevents it from rolling over in high speed turns. It also has a high top speed, great off-road performance, and decent brakes.

The FIB is a large vehicle, and because of this, can hold up to eight passengers (four inside and four outside), which makes it one of the largest capacity vehicles in the game in this regard. The FIB, due to its great torque and weight, is able to barrel through most cars on the road, including roadblocks, fences, and even larger cars. The passengers hanging onto the outside are able to use Assault Rifles and Light Machine Guns while being driven, making this car excellent for drive-by's and assaulting other cars. Care must be taken by the driver of the vehicle when players are riding on the running boards since they can be knocked off and killed in collisions.

The FIB is powered by a turbocharged twin-cam Inline-4 coupled to a 5-speed gearbox in a front engine, all-wheel drive layout (60% front, 40% rear). However, the cover of the engine is more like that of a V8. It supplies enough power for each wheel to gain large amounts of traction and maintains it firm on the ground, which rarely loses speed when going through dirt or sand. Its engine sound is the same one from the regular version, the BeeJay XL and the Bodhi.

Locations

Just like the Sheriff SUV, the FIB Granger is much more challenging to obtain than other police vehicles.

Grand Theft Auto V

  • When reaching a wanted level of 4 stars, FIB Grangers will begin to appear, with two NOOSE agents hanging on the sides. It only appears in Los Santos
  • Two FIB Grangers can be found parked next to the satellites in Grand Senora Desert with FIB agents and scientists at around 10:00 - 11:30 in the morning. It can be obtained with no heat at all, but FIB agents nearby will open fire on the player most of the time once they try to hijack it. Although, sometimes, two FIB Buffaloes will take the place of the FIB Grangers, or sometimes there will be one of each.
  • An easier way to obtain the FIB Granger is to let a character of the player's choice go to his safehouse (i. e. Franklin), then start Director Mode, adjust the wanted status to high, and activate invincibility in the settings. In Director Mode, find an FIB Granger, quickly drive and park it in any safehouse garage of the chosen character (i.e. Franklin's Safehouse Garage), and then exit Director Mode. After exiting Director Mode, switch to that character and go to the garage. The FIB Granger will be nicely parked there and repaired. (Enhanced version only, tested on PC)

Rewards

Trivia

General

  • Even though it is labeled as an FIB vehicle, NOOSE officers use it during wanted levels, suggesting it is also purposed as a tactical SUV.
    • In addition, in the GTA Online mission Time to Get Away, IAA agents are also seen using it, despite their rivalry with the FIB.

Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online

  • During the mission Carbine Rifles, the FIB vehicle has bullet-proof tires and a large crate on the back, where the carbine rifles are.
  • Like the Sheriff SUV, when they spawn, they do not chase the player as frequent as the LSPD. Instead, they will try to ram the player off the road.
