The '''Rancher''' is an 4X4 off-road vehicle that appears in ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]]'', ''[[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]]'', and ''[[Grand Theft Auto IV]]''. It is manufactured by [[Declasse]] in the [[HD Universe]].
   
{{Dialogue2|Guy#1|What kind of moron would drive this car?|Guy#2|Hey, my wife drives one of these.|Oh, sorry man.|GTA VC website.}}
+
In ''[[Grand Theft Auto V]]'', the Rancher is absent and instead, a 4-door version of the car is featured, known as the [[Rancher XL]].
   
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.
+
== Design ==
  +
===3D universe===
  +
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 its 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|1981-1988 Chevrolet K5 Blazer]] (but with added turning signals and different taillights).
   
== Description ==
+
Despite being absent from GTA VCS, the SUV has its [[Gang Rancher|gang version]]. It also has [[FBI Rancher|its FBI version]], which is "semi-absent" (it needs a cheat device in order to appear).

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]].
 
   
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.
+
===''Grand Theft Auto IV''===
  +
The Rancher returns to GTA IV with a highly similar design, only now higher quality and slight cosmetic adjustments. It is based on the same vehicle.

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]].

=== Performance ===
+
The vehicle follows a two-tone color scheme, where the primary color covers the majority of the vehicle, such as the hood, roof, some parts of the side profiling, and the rear bed. The secondary color poses as a stripe-like print on the sides and rear of the vehicle.
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&nbsp;km/h (96&nbsp;mph). The suspension is soft, which makes the car quite comfortable, even on broken surfaces such as railroad tracks.
+
In the frontal area, basic square headlights with small slit-indicator lights are found at the very edge of the grille-area. The grille is a basic rectangle with 6 splitters, finished in chrome. A basic singular bumper is found, with the front registration plate placed in the center, housed in a black frame. On the hood, a groove can be seen spanning the entire depth of the hood, curving off at the end. The entire hood is slightly raised near the edges. A simple flat front windscreen is found with also-simple rectangular side mirrors attached to the front doors with thin rods. The side windows are lined with a white outline, not present on the front windshield.
   
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.
+
On the side, the most distinctive feature is the piped side steps found on either side of the vehicle. They attach to the underside of the vehicle. The Declasse logo is printed just behind the front fenders. The vehicle holds a compact design in the side profiling, being a compact 2-door SUT (and SUV when the rear camper-shell is attached). The wheel arches mostly avoid curves, with basic square-shaped arches with a small black arch trim outlining this. On the roof, a small aerial is present in the center.
  +
  +
On the rear, the vehicle features thin lighting units curving around the rear quarter. The vehicle's main brake lights are fitted in the center of the housing, with the indicators being at the top of the unit, and the reverse lights being squared, surrounded by the rear fog-lights (which appear unusable in-game). The Declasse's text logo is printed on the left side of the rear tailgate, and "Rancher" appears in a red format on the right side of it. The rear license plate is embedded into the tailgate, positioned to the right. The secondary colored "stripe" wraps most of the rear tailgate. The rear diff is also centralized on the rear axle. On the underside, the exhaust can be seen clearer, revealing it holds a large silencer directly after the exhaust tips are exposed. The exhaust pipe then diagonally crosses the chassis and follows the driveshaft back to the engine. While the suspension remains too unclear to identify, the Rancher appears to use a mix of both A-frame-dependent suspension (lightly indicated on the front axles) and leaf-suspension (seen on the rear axle, with only a small number of steel packs, hinting its light weight capacity).
  +
  +
The Rancher has 6 spoke alloy rims wrapped in high profile off-road tires, with knobbly treads and wide profiling.
  +
  +
On the rear underside, the exhaust can be seen. The exhaust takes a basic single exit, twin exhaust configuration, relating back to the modeled straight-4 engine. It is mounted on the left.
  +
The Rancher may come with several accessories:
  +
*A rear bed-cap (known as camper shells).
  +
*Rear mounted roll-bar with spotlights and card boxes in the bed.
  +
*Two different front bullbars.
  +
*A rear bedbox with several card boxes also in the rear.

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. The suspension is soft, which makes the car quite comfortable, even on broken surfaces such as railroad tracks.

===''Grand Theft Auto IV''===

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 four 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 ==
+
The vehicle features a modeled double overhead camshaft inline-4, laid longitudinally in a front-engine, all wheel drive layout. The vehicle also features a large rear diff and silenced exhaust system.
The Rancher can be modified at the [[TransFender]] [[Mod Garages|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.

—GTA Vice City Website.

The Rancher is an 4X4 off-road vehicle that appears in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, and Grand Theft Auto IV. It is manufactured by Declasse in the HD Universe.

In Grand Theft Auto V, the Rancher is absent and instead, a 4-door version of the car is featured, known as the Rancher XL.

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 its 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).

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).

Grand Theft Auto IVEdit

The Rancher returns to GTA IV with a highly similar design, only now higher quality and slight cosmetic adjustments. It is based on the same vehicle.

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.

The vehicle follows a two-tone color scheme, where the primary color covers the majority of the vehicle, such as the hood, roof, some parts of the side profiling, and the rear bed. The secondary color poses as a stripe-like print on the sides and rear of the vehicle. In the frontal area, basic square headlights with small slit-indicator lights are found at the very edge of the grille-area. The grille is a basic rectangle with 6 splitters, finished in chrome. A basic singular bumper is found, with the front registration plate placed in the center, housed in a black frame. On the hood, a groove can be seen spanning the entire depth of the hood, curving off at the end. The entire hood is slightly raised near the edges. A simple flat front windscreen is found with also-simple rectangular side mirrors attached to the front doors with thin rods. The side windows are lined with a white outline, not present on the front windshield.

On the side, the most distinctive feature is the piped side steps found on either side of the vehicle. They attach to the underside of the vehicle. The Declasse logo is printed just behind the front fenders. The vehicle holds a compact design in the side profiling, being a compact 2-door SUT (and SUV when the rear camper-shell is attached). The wheel arches mostly avoid curves, with basic square-shaped arches with a small black arch trim outlining this. On the roof, a small aerial is present in the center.

On the rear, the vehicle features thin lighting units curving around the rear quarter. The vehicle's main brake lights are fitted in the center of the housing, with the indicators being at the top of the unit, and the reverse lights being squared, surrounded by the rear fog-lights (which appear unusable in-game). The Declasse's text logo is printed on the left side of the rear tailgate, and "Rancher" appears in a red format on the right side of it. The rear license plate is embedded into the tailgate, positioned to the right. The secondary colored "stripe" wraps most of the rear tailgate. The rear diff is also centralized on the rear axle. On the underside, the exhaust can be seen clearer, revealing it holds a large silencer directly after the exhaust tips are exposed. The exhaust pipe then diagonally crosses the chassis and follows the driveshaft back to the engine. While the suspension remains too unclear to identify, the Rancher appears to use a mix of both A-frame-dependent suspension (lightly indicated on the front axles) and leaf-suspension (seen on the rear axle, with only a small number of steel packs, hinting its light weight capacity).

The Rancher has 6 spoke alloy rims wrapped in high profile off-road tires, with knobbly treads and wide profiling.

On the rear underside, the exhaust can be seen. The exhaust takes a basic single exit, twin exhaust configuration, relating back to the modeled straight-4 engine. It is mounted on the left. The Rancher may come with several accessories:

  • A rear bed-cap (known as camper shells).
  • Rear mounted roll-bar with spotlights and card boxes in the bed.
  • Two different front bullbars.
  • A rear bedbox with several card boxes also in the rear.

Performance Edit

Grand Theft Auto: San AndreasEdit

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. The suspension is soft, which makes the car quite comfortable, even on broken surfaces such as railroad tracks.

Grand Theft Auto IVEdit

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 four 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).

The vehicle features a modeled double overhead camshaft inline-4, laid longitudinally in a front-engine, all wheel drive layout. The vehicle also features a large rear diff and silenced exhaust system.

Special VariantsEdit

  • A unique "Lure 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 "lure" version cannot be exported or modded at mod garages.
  • A completely black Rancher, looking like a shortened FBI 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.
  • In GTA IV, a Rancher 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.

TriviaEdit

GeneralEdit

  • In its appearances in GTA San Andreas and GTA IV, the Rancher plays the following radio stations by default when entered:
  • 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.
    • The Rancher also somewhat resembles a Ford Bronco, the Ranger's 4X4 variant.
  • The vehicle makes a cameo appearance in the Rockstar Vancouver game, Bully [1].

Grand Theft Auto: San AndreasEdit

  • In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, the rear-view mirrors will not have its reflectors rendered fully when the Rancher has its headlights on, this is a probably due to it being an improper render or graphical error.

Grand Theft Auto IVEdit

  • There is a wrecked version of it which can be seen in most ghettos and junkyards in Grand Theft Auto IV.
