Ineos Opens Order Books for Grenadier Quartermaster


ineos opens order books for grenadier quartermaster

As the second model released by British brand Ineos Automotive, the Grenadier Quartermaster oozes off-road swagger – even just sitting stationary on a mountaintop.

Starting at $86,900 in America, the pickup shares plenty of architecture and components with the equally boxy Grenadier SUV. However, the truck’s chassis is a foot longer, resulting in an open cargo box measuring just over five feet in length. It has a payload capacity of 1,675 pounds and equals the SUV’s towing prowess which checks in at 7,716 pounds. Like the SUV, it is powered by a 3.0L inline-six sourced from BMW and funnels its power to all four wheels through a ZF eight-speed automatic.

A center differential lock and a two-speed transfer case are fitted as standard, though front and rear diff locks are optional. The truck also rides on the same heavy-duty five-link front and rear suspension as the SUV and is fitted with Carraro-supplied solid beam axles. A total of 10.6 inches of ground clearance gets drivers over the rough stuff; 31.5 inches of wading depth helps out during monsoon season.

Also mirroring the SUV? Trim levels, which show up for duty as Trialmaster and Fieldmaster. Note to all other brands, especially ones stuck on using soulless alphanumerics as model designations: poach whoever’s in charge of naming conventions at Ineos. The interiors of these things are also have a tremendously utilitarian vibe, with chunky switches and plenty of intentionally exposed bolt heads. The only thing which looks out of place is the BMW shifter for the ZF 8-speed.

For those unfamiliar, Ineos Automotive was formed by Jim Ratcliffe in 2017 and the SUV was launched in 2022. This was followed by the crew cab pickup you see here and a smaller Fusilier SUV shown in February 2024.

Deliveries of the Quartermaster are expected to take place before the end of this year.
