A '''Ranger''' may refer to two distinct off-road vehicles in the GTA series. The Ranger name was first used in [[Grand Theft Auto: London, 1969]] and [[Grand Theft Auto: London, 1961]] for a civilian 4x4, while [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]] reintroduces the Ranger name for a [[Rural Police|rural police]] vehicle. Possibly manufactured by [[Declasse]] due to its relationship with [[Rancher]] by which its manufactured.

The London renditions of the Ranger, with a top-down profile similar to a [[wp:Land Rover Series#Series II|Land Rover 109" Series II]], are essentially 4x4s comparable to [[Grand Theft Auto 1]]'s [[4x4]] and [[Repair Van]], representing the era's and setting's off-road vehicle. Despite its use by civilians, the Ranger only appears with a green body and a white roof. Like the Repair Van, it also features a front-lid mounted spare tire, similar to a Land Rover. The Ranger grants the player an average sum of money when exported.

In ''[[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]]'', the Ranger is now depicted as a [[police]]-issued [[Rancher]] that is outfitted with sirens, light bars, radio antenna and a criminal-hold in the back. The Ranger is primarily native in rural [[San Andreas (3D Universe)|San Andreas]], where rough terrain merits its presence. A peculiarity of the Ranger is that smoke will emerge from ''the center'' of the vehicle after sustaining heavy damage instead of its engine in the front. Its right headlight also does not light up completely, it only glows. It's unknown whether this is a glitch or intended by the producers of GTA or probably to differ the [[Rancher]].

GTA London's Ranger is a somewhat lumbering vehicle, with average top speed but below-average acceleration, bulky weight, poor brakes and poor handling.

GTA San Andreas's Ranger handles somewhat the same as the original Rancher, but it is much faster, having a top speed similar to that of some sport cars. It also has a slightly larger ground clearance, and its more durable body and can sustain more damage than the [[Rancher]]. It is a great off-road vehicle and can easily drive over rocks. Despite this, because of its weight and somewhat poor traction, it isn't the best vehicle for hill climbing. Doing so will often cause it to tip over, falling down the mountain. However, it can accelerate extremely well even on steep inclines.

The London renditions of the Ranger, with a top-down profile similar to a Land Rover 109" Series II, are essentially 4x4s comparable to Grand Theft Auto 1's 4x4 and Repair Van, representing the era's and setting's off-road vehicle. Despite its use by civilians, the Ranger only appears with a green body and a white roof. Like the Repair Van, it also features a front-lid mounted spare tire, similar to a Land Rover. The Ranger grants the player an average sum of money when exported.

Grand Theft Auto: San AndreasEdit

In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, the Ranger is now depicted as a police-issued Rancher that is outfitted with sirens, light bars, radio antenna and a criminal-hold in the back. The Ranger is primarily native in rural San Andreas, where rough terrain merits its presence. A peculiarity of the Ranger is that smoke will emerge from the center of the vehicle after sustaining heavy damage instead of its engine in the front. Its right headlight also does not light up completely, it only glows. It's unknown whether this is a glitch or intended by the producers of GTA or probably to differ the Rancher.

It also has a different paint job from other vehicles in the SAPD. The Police cars have the 'panda' paintjob, with black fronts and hoods, white doors and roofs and black rears and trunks. However, the Ranger has a black front with a white hood, white doors with half the roof painted black and the other half white, and black rears.
