The Declasse Sheriff SUV is a law enforcement vehicle, making its debut appearance in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online. It is a modified version of the Granger, and is used by the Los Santos County Sheriff and National Office of Security Enforcement.

Design

Grand Theft Auto V

The front fascia strongly resembles that of a mix of Third Generation Ford Expedition and GMT900 Chevrolet Tahoe Police Package. The vehicles size is based on a Chevy Suburban.

The front of the SUV features a large push bar and a plastic front bumper finished in black and a large main grille which has chrome edges. The hood features a raised area which has edges that follow the edges of the grille. Beneath the grille there is chrome area central to the bumper.

The SUV features a long wheelbase. There are sidesteps for police to place their feet on. The front and rear panels of the vehicle are black, with a white body that displays the sheriff decals. The wing mirrors have flashing lights fitted to them, and the A-pillars also feature spotlights. The roof features an LED light bar, mounted above the front row of seats. The SUV also features LED lights on the grill. The roof has longitudinal rails, allowing officers to hold on to the car and fire a one-handed weapon simultaneously. The SUV features black wheels wrapped in high profile tires. At the rear, another distinct plastic bumper is visible, also finished in black.

Like the Granger and FIB variant, the Sheriff SUV is fitted with roof rails that allow members of the NOOSE team to hang on the side of the vehicle in a similar fashion to how the real life SWAT teams in Los Angeles hang onto the sides of LASD Chevrolet Suburbans.

The decals are inspired by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's vehicles, featuring a black-white design unlike the all-white Sheriff Cruiser. 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.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto V

The Sheriff SUV, along with the FIB Granger and 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 offroad performance, decent brakes, but all at the cost of being difficult to obtain. The Sheriff SUV is much more challenging to obtain than other police vehicles.

Trivia

Grand Theft Auto V

  • The Sheriff SUV appear with the following aerial roof numbers: 05, 32, 76, 84.
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.

Bugs/Glitches

  • Before the 1.06 update, the Sheriff SUV could be customised at Los Santos Customs, though the only customisation options available were respraying the vehicle and applying bulletproof tyres.
    • These colors are simply labeled as "main color Nº" (N is the number of the list), instead of the color's name.
