For a similar vehicle, see Rancher.

"A pioneer of the mid-size SUV market during the 1980s and early 1990s, the Rancher harks back to a simpler time when you could still stick a metal box on wheels and call it a car. If you're the kind of person who wants a fun off-road vehicle for less than 10k, and doesn't pay too much attention to crash data, this is the car for you."
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Declasse Rancher XL is a four-door, full-size SUV in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.

It is a four-door derivative of the Rancher from Grand Theft Auto IV, with a longer wheelbase — reminiscent of the FBI Rancher and Gang Rancher from Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories.


Grand Theft Auto V

The Rancher XL 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.

In-game, it is based on the original Rancher from Grand Theft Auto IV, but with four doors, having a longer wheelbase. The vehicle only appears in its full-body appearance, lacking a pickup variant unlike the GTA IV's Rancher. Its paint scheme has also changed from its two-door counterpart, now being a two-tone color scheme, instead of a single color with a wide stripe. It also has Light Smoke window tint applied by default.[1]

Grand Theft Auto V

The Rancher XL is slightly slower than its 2-door edition due to the extended chassis, and its acceleration and top speed leaves much to be desired. Its handling is much better than the previous edition, though. The Rancher XL is the only vehicle with live axle suspension while others with a live axle model perform as if they have independent systems.

Its large inline-4 engine can be heard very clearly, being significantly high-revving and roary. The all-wheel drivetrain (30-70, front to rear) provides decent traction, as well as good capacity to sort uneven terrain thanks to its large wheels and high ground clearance, though it will not be the best at hill climbing due to the weight and acceleration.
