The Rancher is a medium-sized SUV designed with off-road capabilities in mind, featuring large tires, soft suspensions and a high ground clearance. Despite its size, the two-door Rancher is only capable of holding two occupants, as it rear compartment is not capable of carrying passengers, similar to two-door pickup trucks in the series. In general, the Rancher resembles a [[wp:Chevrolet K5 Blazer#1973-1991|1981-1988 Chevrolet K5 Blazer]] (but with added turning signals and different taillights). The [[GTA IV]] rendition, however, resembles a [[wp:Chevrolet K5 Blazer#1973-1991|Cheyenne Trim 1989-1991 K5 Blazer]]; the taillights and the slight lean of the rear of the cab resemble [[wp:Ford Bronco|1980-1996 Ford Broncos]].

The overall body design resembles that of the 2-door version of the [[wp:Jeep Cherokee (XJ)|Jeep Cherokee XJ]].
   
 
Until GTA IV, the Rancher is depicted with a camper shell permanently included over its bed. The GTA IV rendition, however, features variants of the Rancher with or without a camper shell. Pickup variants of the Rancher may also include a roll bar with top-mounted offroad lights, a brush guard, or a bull bar. All variants of GTA IV's Rancher also feature nerf bars. The rear bed-lids of pre-GTA IV Ranchers are hinged to the top, while those of the GTA IV rendition are hinged at the bottom on the truck bed, with an additional glass lid hinged to the top for the camper shell variant.

=== Performance ===
In [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]], the Rancher is one of the better SUVs in the game. Performance is only average, but its chassis is better. Its handling is above average with a very low speed of 154 km/h (96 mph). The suspension is soft, which makes the car quite comfortable, even on broken surfaces such as railroad tracks.

In [[Grand Theft Auto IV]], the Rancher is not a on-road performance oriented vehicle. Its suspension consists of solid axles front and rear, as opposed to the independent suspension on more refined SUV's and pick-ups. This layout, coupled with a potent eight cylinder engine, means that on-road cornering is an erratic affair, with plenty of sliding and body roll.

This layout, coupled with a potent eight cylinder engine, means that on-road cornering is an erratic affair, with plenty of sliding and body roll.
   
However, the old-fashioned suspension, together with 4WD and a easily controlled engine, starts to pay off when the vehicle is taken off-road. In the hands of a skillful driver, the Rancher is an excellent off-roader. The high ground clearance means boulders are negotiated with ease. The solid axles keep the vehicle planted, although the driver must always be wary of the risk of a roll-over (due to the high center of gravity).

The Declasse Rancher is an SUV/pickup truck that appears in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, and Grand Theft Auto IV. Unlike most vehicles from GTA Vice City, the Rancher is cut from Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories for unknown reasons.

Description Edit

Design Edit

Rancher badges

The Rancher is a medium-sized SUV designed with off-road capabilities in mind, featuring large tires, soft suspensions and a high ground clearance. Despite its size, the two-door Rancher is only capable of holding two occupants, as it rear compartment is not capable of carrying passengers, similar to two-door pickup trucks in the series. In general, the Rancher resembles a 1981-1988 Chevrolet K5 Blazer (but with added turning signals and different taillights). The GTA IV rendition, however, resembles a Cheyenne Trim 1989-1991 K5 Blazer; the taillights and the slight lean of the rear of the cab resemble 1980-1996 Ford Broncos. The overall body design resembles that of the 2-door version of the Jeep Cherokee XJ.

Until GTA IV, the Rancher is depicted with a camper shell permanently included over its bed. The GTA IV rendition, however, features variants of the Rancher with or without a camper shell. Pickup variants of the Rancher may also include a roll bar with top-mounted offroad lights, a brush guard, or a bull bar. All variants of GTA IV's Rancher also feature nerf bars. The rear bed-lids of pre-GTA IV Ranchers are hinged to the top, while those of the GTA IV rendition are hinged at the bottom on the truck bed, with an additional glass lid hinged to the top for the camper shell variant.

Performance Edit

In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, the Rancher is one of the better SUVs in the game. Performance is only average, but its chassis is better. Its handling is above average with a very low speed of 154 km/h (96& mph). The suspension is soft, which makes the car quite comfortable, even on broken surfaces such as railroad tracks.

In Grand Theft Auto IV, the Rancher is not an on-road performance oriented vehicle. Its suspension consists of solid axles front and rear, as opposed to the independent suspension on more refined SUV's and pick-ups. This layout, coupled with a potent eight cylinder engine, means that on-road cornering is an erratic affair, with plenty of sliding and body roll.

However, the old-fashioned suspension, together with 4WD and an easily controlled engine, starts to pay off when the vehicle is taken off-road. In the hands of a skillful driver, the Rancher is an excellent off-roader. The high ground clearance means boulders are negotiated with ease. The solid axles keep the vehicle planted, although the driver must always be wary of the risk of a roll-over (due to the high center of gravity).

Modifications Edit

The Rancher can be modified at the TransFender mod garage with paint (two colours), hoods, exhausts, spoilers, lights, nitrous (All), roofs, wheels, stereo (Bass Boost) and hydraulics. However, the Rancher spawned by Cheats (with blacked out windows) cannot be modified, nor can it be exported.

The Rancher can be modified at TransFenders.

Variants Edit

Rancher-GTA4-Stevie-front

The Rancher requested in Stevie's Car Thefts in GTA IV.

  • FBI Rancher (GTA Vice City and GTA San Andreas, GTA Chinatown Wars as the "Albany FIB Rancher" and GTA Vice City Stories by using cheat devices)
  • Police Ranger (GTA San Andreas)
  • A unique Rancher (internal name "rnchlure") can be spawned with a spawn cheat in GTA San Andreas. The vehicle's internal name suggests that it was intended for use in the mission "Lure", however a regular Rancher is used in that mission. The only distinction of this variant from the normal Rancher are its black-tinted windows (which obscure the occupants of the vehicle, a central element of the Lure mission). Unlike the normal Rancher, the "rnchlure" version cannot be exported or modded at mod garages. (GTA San Andreas)
  • Gang Rancher (GTA Vice City Stories)
  • A Rancher in GTA IV is among a range of cars requested in Stevie's Car Thefts, featuring a unique blood red and light gray body color. The Rancher may come with or without a camper shell, as well as one of a range of accessories, much like a regular Rancher.
Black rancher

The black Rancher in GTA Vice City.

  • A completely black Rancher can be obtained in GTA Vice City. To do this, the player must complete the "Test Track" mission three times, each time faster than the previous. On the fourth attempt, a PIG driving a black Rancher will appear and start driving around the track. He will not try to harm the player, even when the car gets stolen from him. This car can not be found anywhere else in the game without cheating.
  • Sandking (except in GTA V where it is a variant of the Sadler)
  • Rancher XL, a four-door variant of the Rancher in GTA V.
  • Police Rancher, a police variant found during the Prologue of GTA V.

  • In its appearances in GTA San Andreas and GTA IV, the Rancher plays the following radio stations by default when entered:
  • There is a wrecked version of it, which is not drivable, and can be seen in most ghettos, and junkyards in Grand Theft Auto IV.
  • The black Rancher from GTA VC looks like a shortened FBI Rancher.
  • Despite being absent from GTA VCS, the SUV has its gang version. It also has its FBI version, which is "semi-absent" (it needs a cheat device in order to appear, as mentioned above).
  • This is one of the, if not the most realistic vehicle in GTA IV in terms of the hood view. The driver can see the hood as usual. If you look at the rear of the camper-shelled version, since the camera is positioned behind the rear window of the cab, the player has the challenges of roof pillars and whatnot, most of which is absent in most other vehicles.
  • The name "Rancher" is similar to Ranger, a compact pickup manufactured by Ford. The "Ranger" name is further used in San Andreas as the police version of the Rancher.
  • It makes a cameo appearance in the Rockstar Vancouver game, Bully [1].
  • In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, the rear-view mirrors will not have it's reflectors rendered fully when the Rancher has it's headlights on, this is a render/graphical error..
  • In GTA IV, the Rancher shares the same engine and horn sound as the Bobcat.
