"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. If you're the kind of person who wants a fun off-road vehicle for less than 10k, and doesn't pay too much attention to crash data, this is the car for you. "
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Declasse Rancher XL is a four-door, mid-size SUV in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.

It is a four-door derivative of the Rancher from Grand Theft Auto IV, with a longer wheelbase — reminiscent of the FIB Rancher and Gang Rancher from GTA Vice City Stories.


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

In-game, it's based on the original Rancher from Grand Theft Auto IV, but with four doors, having a longer wheelbase. The vehicle only appears in its full-body appearance, lacking a pickup variant unlike GTA IV's Rancher. Its paint scheme has also changed from its two-door counterpart, now being a two-tone colour scheme, instead of a single color with a wide stripe.

Grand Theft Auto V

The Rancher XL is slightly slower than its 2 door version of the Rancher. Its handling is much better than the previous, however, its acceleration and its poor top speed leaves much to be desired. Its large Inline-4 engine can be heard very clearly, being significantly high-revving and roary.

  • It can rarely be found driven around the streets of Los Santos
  • Can be also found in Chamberlain Hills and Strawberry.
  • 2 can be found in the 'Duel' random event in a unique worn red and worn green.
