When INEOS fully revealed its 2024 Grenadier Station Wagon a few months back, it had been a long time coming. First teasing the inaugural Defender-like SUV in 2021, the British marque’s foundation dates as far back as 2018 and yet we were just getting our first glimpses at a production-ready vehicle. Well, just two months later, for the Goodwood Festival of Speed in West Sussex, INEOS presents us with its second vehicle: the Grenadier Quartermaster pick-up truck.
Pairing the performance of the Grenadier Station Wagon with the versatility of a double-cab pick-up, the Quartermaster aims to bring best-in-class off-road capability to an admittedly crowded 4×4 market. It’s also notable that, among the predominance of new automotive companies debuting in recent years, very few of them aren’t focusing on electric motors. As for the Quartermaster, it runs on combustion and combustion alone, with a BMW-sourced 3.0L turbocharged inline-six engine with an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission, putting out 282hp and 331lb.ft of torque.
305mm longer than the Grenadier Station Wagon, the ladder frame chassis makes for a more-than-capable load bay, which itself is 1,564mm x 1,619mm. Riding on a heavy-duty five-link front and rear suspension, the truck has been fitted with Carraro solid beam axles, a recirculating ball steering system, and Brembo brakes. For its five passengers, the vehicle boasts a payload of 1,676lbs to go along with its 7,716-pound towing capacity. And if you’re planning on taking this thing off-road, it’ll do just fine with its 264mm of ground clearance and 800mm of wading depth. While it doesn’t give exact numbers, INEOS claims its approach, breakover, and departure angles are unrivaled by any other production pick-up.
Just like the Station Wagon, the Grenadier Quartermaster will come in standard, Trialmaster, and Fieldmaster trims, with extra custom options available as well. Prices start at £66,215 (~$86,738). Head over to INEOS’ website to learn more.
