Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories

The Gang Rancher is a modified variant of the Rancher but with four doors and a longer wheelbase. It serves as a gang car driven by the Sharks, and as such, are commonly parked in empire sites owned by the Sharks. The vehicle's front end, rim set, hood, and rear are different from the original Rancher and it also supports the gang's colors; which are red, white, and black.

The Gang Rancher is designed to look like a 1973–1991 Chevrolet K5 Blazer with the front end of a Lamborghini LM002.


Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories

The Gang Rancher's performance is considerably better than that of a standard Rancher, although its police counterpart, the FBI Rancher, possesses somewhat better performance than it. Its acceleration is delayed, but can reach a decent top speed along a straight. Braking and steering are also robust, considering the size of the vehicle itself. The vehicle has an all wheel drive system, making it a good off-road vehicle, however the engine has slightly below average power driving the vehicle.
