Last fall, INEOS, a British chemical company, branched out into new territory when it began production of its first vehicle, the Grenadier 4×4, in France. INEOS is now readying its Land Rover Defender impersonator for the U.S. market by the end of 2023. But before the Grenadier reaches our shores, INEOS is providing a look into the future of its automotive ambitions at the Goodwood Festival of Speed next month, where it will reveal a new pickup-truck variant and a hydrogen-powered prototype.
INEOS today showed a teaser for the new truck, which will be called the Grenadier Quartermaster. We expect the Quartermaster to be identical to the Grenadier SUV from the cab forward, and it will debut as a double cab, with no word on the possibility of a regular-cab version. The teaser shows a tough-looking tailgate with Grenadier boldly stamped in it, while the singular round taillights from the SUV remain. The Quartermaster will be shown in full on July 13 before making a run up the Goodwood Hill Climb.
Along with the Quartermaster, INEOS will reveal a Grenadier-based Hydrogen Fuel Cell Technology Demonstrator. This is not the first time INEOS has shown interest into hydrogen power, but it will mark the first fuel-cell prototype we’ve seen from the new automaker. No other details were provided, but more should be revealed before the FCEV Demonstrator also heads up the iconic hill-climb.
INEOS aims to start sales of the Grenadier in the U.S. by the end of this year, with pricing for the off-road-ready SUV opening at $73,100. The Grenadier is powered by a BMW-sourced 3.0-liter six-cylinder producing 282 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque. INEOS is predicting an EPA combined fuel-economy rating of just 15 mpg, and it will be offered with front and rear electronic locking differentials and BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 tires.
