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.

  • Ajla It's weird how surveys comes to conclusions like this when about 100% of the responses then mock the results.
  • Jkross22 It very much depends on the dealer. Just bought a replacement for the CX9. A local dealer gave a $500 discount on a CPO car while another one gave a few thousand dollar discount but was out of the area and we had to drive 5 hours to get. The local dealer still seems to think it's 2022 and cars appreciate when sitting on the lot. I wish them luck.
  • Ajla "and the $34K price doesn't seem too steep." Respectfully disagree. This would be okay at $29K. $34k clangs into way too much.
  • FreedMike i puUut pUniZhR sTikKr oNn mY KoMMpAs aNd nOW i hEeR Eegle SkReem. (And no one knows it's made in Mexico.)
  • SCE to AUX What a farce.Besides, "patriotism" has been redefined a hundred different ways in the last 20+ years. Disagree with one of them, and you're a traitor.And for starters, Jeep is a Stellantis brand with its HQ in the Netherlands. If this persistent myth about patriotism is ever cracked, the brand is doomed.
