"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."
Southernsanandreassuperautos.com description.

The Declasse Rancher XL is a four-door, mid-size SUV in Grand Theft Auto V. It is a four-door derivative of the Rancher from Grand Theft Auto IV, with a longer wheelbase — reminiscent of the FBI Rancher and Cartel from GTA III-era games.

Design

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

Variants

  • A snow-covered Rancher XL is used by the player during the Prologue mission. This particular variant has snow on its hood and roof, and features snow chains on its tires. 

Locations

Trivia

  • This likely the precedessor of the Granger because this is based on a 1986-1991 Chevrolet Suburban and the Granger is based on a 2007-2013 model.
  • If given off-road tires and a red paint job, the Rancher XL will strongly resemble Harry Dalton's truck from the film Dante's Peak.
  • Painting it with a black paint job, the vehicle will resemble the FBI Rancher.
    • With this, at the airport, a black Rancher can be found quite often, maybe referencing the FBI Rancher once again.
  • In the Prologue mission, after the train crash, when Michael, Trevor, and Brad get out of the vehicle, there is an audible Door Ajar Chime coming out of it.
  • It is one of two SUVs which are classified as Off-Road in-game, the other one is the Merryweather variant of the Mesa.
  • Unlike the normal Rancher, it has a diesel engine instead of a gasoline one.
  • This is the first vehicle in GTA V to be driven by the player, as if the player starts to play GTA V, they will start with the introduction and after escaping from the police, the Rancher XL as a gateway vehicle then it will be driven.
  • Respraying it red and black will make it slightly resemble the Gang Rancher used by the Sharks in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories.
