For the law enforcement division, see San Andreas Park Ranger.

The Declasse Park Ranger is a law enforcement vehicle appearing in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.

Design

Grand Theft Auto V

The Park Ranger is a variant of the Granger used by the San Andreas Park Rangers, as implied by its name. It has a white color with a green stripe on the middle, as well as LED flashing red/blue lights on the grille, wing mirrors, roof and rear window. The front of the SUV features a medium push bar and the A-pillars also feature spotlights. The windows have Light Smoke window tint applied by default.[1]

The decal design seems to be modeled slightly on the United States Park Ranger vehicles. Being primarily a patrol vehicle, it does not have any sort of aerial identification number, but does have a registration code, which is TH132.

Upon entering this vehicle, the player will obtain a Carbine Rifle.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto V

The Park Ranger, along with the FIB and the Sheriff SUV, is easily one 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. While statistically inferior in top speed according to the files, the difference is minimal, causing little to no impact on its overall performance compared to its police equivalents.

The Park Ranger is powered by a turbocharged twin-cam Inline-4 coupled to a 5-speed gearbox in a front engine, all-wheel drive (60% front, 40% rear) layout. 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.

The Park Ranger 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 Park Ranger, 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.

ParkRanger-GTAV-Races

A player selecting a Park Ranger in a GTA Race in GTA Online, and spraying it blue.

  • Before Patch 1.12, the Park Ranger was classed as a SUV. However, after the patch was released, it has been properly recategorized as a Emergency vehicle. It could have been used in a race, and even possible to apply a paintjob instead of the Park Ranger livery.
    • Oddly, the player can still select the Park Ranger after the latest patch, albeit they select a race as "GTA" and use the SUV category. They will also be able to respray the Park Ranger.
  • The push bar is different to any other push bar in the game, it has a different design, which can slightly resemble the LCPD (NYPD) cars, in real life and in Grand Theft Auto IV.
  • In one of the early screenshots of the game, NOOSE officers can be seen driving it. It could be that in the beta, the Park Ranger was used as a placeholder before the Sheriff SUV came in.
Enhanced Version
  • The unused lights fitted in the front window have now been removed.
