The Declasse Police Rancher is a four-door law enforcement SUV featured in Grand Theft Auto V.

The Police Rancher is essentially a police variant of the Rancher XL, used by the North Yankton State Patrol. The vehicle shares the same design and features as the regular version, but is covered in snow in the upper surfaces, bumpers and windows. The roof has two antenna and a square-shaped lightbar with six rotating halogen emergency lights on it. Like the snowy variant of the Rancher XL, the vehicle does not feature a defroster rear window, and has a rear compartment handle not present on the regular version.

The vehicle is only available in a white color with NYSP markings around, consisting of gold and blue stripes down the side, "STATE PATROL" on the front fenders and the emblem emblazoned on the front doors, as well as "Trooper of the year 1951" markings on the rearmost sections of the sides. It uses the same wheel design as the snowy variant of the Rancher XL, being a derivative of the "Raider" off-road rims seen in Los Santos Customs, fitted with tire chains to improve control while driving on snowy surfaces (however, this is purely cosmetic).

Grand Theft Auto V

Although normally unobtainable in-game, testing the Police Rancher out through the use of savegame editing or trainers reveals that the Police Rancher's performance is a sort of 'hybrid' between the normal Rancher XL and the game's numerous police vehicles. Despite being an off-road vehicle, the Police Rancher is surprisingly nimble.

Most of its properties are shared with that of the normal Rancher XL, sporting an inline-4 engine with a 5-speed gearbox and an all-wheel drivetrain (30-70, front to rear). The engine's noise is different compared to the standard Rancher XL, being similar to SUVs like the Granger and the Baller.
