The Declasse Sheriff SUV is a law enforcement vehicle, making its debut appearance in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.


Grand Theft Auto V

The Sheriff SUV is a variant of the Granger modified for Sheriff/NOOSE use. It has a black/white paintjob (in contrast with the Sheriff Cruiser all-white paintjob) and LED flashing red/blue lights on the grille, wing mirrors, roof and rear window. The front of the SUV features a large push bar and the A-pillars also feature spotlights. The car also has an unknown window tint applied by default.[1]

The decals are inspired by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's vehicles. Like several other marked police vehicles, the SUV features a number on the the rear fascia, it will always end in the number on the roof. The Sheriff SUV appear with the following aerial roof numbers: 05, 32, 76, 84.

Grand Theft Auto V

The Sheriff SUV, along with the FIB and the Park Ranger, is easily 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.

The Sheriff SUV 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 Sheriff SUV 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 Sheriff SUV, 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.

Its handling line is the same as its FIB equivalent.

Grand Theft Auto V

Enhanced Version
  • The siren was altered for the enhanced version; it is now a higher-pitched version of the siren used for the FIB vehicles.
  • The unused lights fitted in the front window have now been removed.
  • Shooting the siren/lights will no longer result in a malfunctioning siren.

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • Obtaining one without a driver while using Lester's "Cops Turn Blind Eye" service, the player can drive off with NOOSE operatives still on the side of the vehicle. Stopping the vehicle for too long, or letting the time run-out will result in them stepping off and opening fire, however.


  • Before the 1.06 update, the Sheriff SUV could be customized at Los Santos Customs, though the only customisation options available were respraying the vehicle and applying bulletproof tires.
    • These colors were simply labeled as "Color Group Nº" (N is the number of the list), instead of the color's name. Also, the pearlescent options had missing names, but the prices remain listed.
