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


Grand Theft Auto V

The Police Rancher is based on the 1973-1991 Chevrolet Suburban, but with a boxier design. Its front end could be based on a second generation Chevy K5 Blazer or 1984-1996 Jeep Wagoneer. It also shares some styling (front and rear fascias) with the Dodge RamCharger, albeit being considerably larger.

The Police Rancher is the police version of the Rancher XL, used by the North Yankton State Patrol. The car features an all-white color with gold and blue stripes down the side, "STATE PATROL" on the fenders and the police emblem emblazoned on the front doors. "Trooper of the year 1951" markings can be seen on the rear portions.

The vehicle sports a unique light bar bearing six emergency lights and two antenna on the roof. It is covered in snow in the upper surfaces, bumpers and windows, and appears to have a worn texturing on its front trimmings (albeit having a relatively clean engine bay). The vehicle also features chains on its tires for better grip on snowy and icy streets.

Unlike the Rancher XL, the Police Rancher does not feature a defroster rear window.

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 an all-wheel drivetrain (30-70, front to rear). The engine's noise is unique compared to the standard Rancher XL, which is similar to SUVs like the Granger or the Baller.
