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.

    It is a shame about the engine selection. It makes me wonder what else about the SUV is made out of hot garbage.

    I think I'll hold off for the Fusilier Aspirant model.

  • NJRide So this is an average age of car to be junked now and of course this is a lower end (and now semi-orphaned) product. But street examples seem to still be worth 2500? So are cars getting junked only coming in because of a traumatic repair? If not it seems a lot of cars being junked that would still possibly worth more than scrap.Also Murilee I remember your Taurus article way back what is the king of the junkyard in 2024?
  • AMcA I applaud Toyota for getting away from the TRD performance name. TuRD. This is another great example of "if they'd just thought to preview the name with a 13 year old boy."
  • Jeff Does this really surprise anyone? How about the shoes and the clothes you wear. Anything you can think of that is either directly made in China or has components made in China likely has some slave labor involved. The very smart phone, tablet, and laptop you are using probably has some component in it that is either mined or made by slave labor. Not endorsing slave labor just trying to be real.
  • Jeff Self-driving is still a far ways from being perfected. I would say at the present time if my car took over if I had a bad day I would have a much worse day. Would be better to get an Uber
  • 2manyvettes Time for me to take my 79 Corvette coupe out of the garage and drive if to foil the forces of evil. As long as I can get the 8 track player working...
