2022 INEOS Grenadier, It is specified for those with an adventure lifestyle - Car Blog

        2022 INEOS Grenadier retro-style will be available from May 18 in the UK with prices from £49,000 equivalent to $61,502

        Ineos will also offer two pre-configured Grenadiers called the ‘Trialmaster’ and the ‘Fieldmaster’, both priced from £59,000. The firm says the Trialmaster has been ‘specified with extreme off-roading in mind’ and the Fieldmaster ‘is designed for those with an adventure lifestyle’. There will be further customisation options within the Grenadier’s ‘Utility belt’ along its flanks.

        The Trialmaster Edition gets both the ‘Smooth Pack’ and additional ‘Rough Pack’ as standard. Both packs cost £1,685 on other models but the Fieldmaster gets the Smooth Pack as standard as well.

        The Rough Pack adds front and rear diff locks, BFGoodrich All-terrain T/A KO2 tyres, a raised air intake, exterior utility belts and an auxiliary battery. The Smooth Pack includes a rear view camera, puddle lamps, power heated door mirrors and auxiliary USB power outlets. There’s also 17-inch alloy wheels as standard (there’s an option to upgrade to 18-inch wheels), Safari windows and heated front seats.

        The French-built, Austrian-engineered and British-conceived new 4x4 – evoking memories of the original Land Rover Defender – should reach customers from the end of this year, with production starting in July 2022. Production will take place at the firm’s Hambach plant, which was bought from Mercedes in 2020.

        The Grenadier was designed by Toby Ecuyer, who started his career as an architect and recently moved into designing super yachts. It shares the same boxy proportions as the old Defender, with similarly angular doors and window glass. It also shares the Land Rover’s slatted radiator grille, flat bonnet, round headlamps and upright windscreen – and, under the front bumper, there’s a thick sump guard.

        Inside, the vehicle takes on a rugged approach that mixes practicality and durability with the latest technology and plenty of comfort, the company claims.

        Almost every element of the Grenadier has been designed from a clean sheet of paper, including the cabin. With the car’s focus on being easy to operate in the most extreme conditions (e.g. when wearing gloves) - as both a commercial vehicle and a lifestyle off-roader - the Grenadier’s cabin features big buttons and controls that have been inspired by maritime set-ups and heavy machinery, according to Ineos Automotive’s Head of Design, Toby Ecuyer.

        The idea behind this approach is to boost ease of use and how logical the layout is; with that in mind every switch is labelled with writing rather than an icon, so it’s obvious what function it operates.

        All models will feature the same centre stack of toggle switches and an overhead row of toggle switches on the headlining. This will be home to functions such as the front and rear electronic differential locks, while the centre diff lock is operated manually via a lever on the centre console next to the BMW-sourced gear selector.

        Extra panels in the roof are available to control electronic extras such as roof lights or a winch; pre-wiring for these panels and accessories comes fitted as standard, while the Grenadier will also offer an optional 2,000-watt AC power converter to run various different accessories, such as power tools.

        Alongside the BMW-sourced powertrains, Ineos Automotive has sourced the infotainment system from the German brand, with the 12.3-inch touchscreen (also controlled through a rotary dial on the transmission tunnel) uses BMW’s operating system. However, the Grenadier’s graphics are bespoke.

        Navigation will be through either Apple CarPlay or Android Auto connectivity - a move Ineos claims will help boost usability, integrating with owners’ devices, and stop the tech dating. There’s also an off-road pathfinder function given the Grenadier’s intended use and capability.

        Three full-size adults can slot in the back nicely, thanks to the front seats being shaped to give the rear passengers sufficient knee room. The two-seat and five-seat commercial versions can accommodate a Euro pallet, too.

        There will be an entry-level ‘Utility Wagon’ two-seat model as well as a £52,000 ‘Station Wagon’ five-seat version.
