Future Grenadier Variants
The prototypes on display included:

  • Portal-Axled Grenadier Quartermaster and Station Wagon: Modified by LeTech, these vehicles boast increased ground clearance and wading depth.
  • Short-Bed Quartermaster Pick-Up (‘Shortermaster’): Engineered by INEOS at their Hambach plant, featuring a shorter wheelbase and maximized load bay capacity.
  • V8-Powered Station Wagon: Built by engineering apprentices at Magna, this one-off project features a GM 6.2-litre V8 engine.

  • Shortermaster Pick-Up: A compact version of the Grenadier Station Wagon, designed to maximize load capacity.
  • V8 Prototype: A comprehensive powertrain overhaul, showcasing engineering prowess with a powerful GM V8 engine.
  • Safari Game-Viewer: Equipped with bespoke protection bars, alloy wheels, and off-road tires to tackle demanding terrains.
  • Rally-Ready Grenadier: Enhanced with an uprated engine, sports exhaust system, race suspension, and stripped-out cabin for high-speed off-road racing.

Leadership Remarks
Lynn Calder, CEO of INEOS Automotive, stated, “The Grenadier’s body-on-frame chassis has already proven itself to be incredibly versatile, so as we look to future product and limited editions, we want to keep innovating. As our new brand campaign states, the Grenadier is Built For More, and over the next few years we will be showing just what that means.”

These prototypes underscore INEOS Automotive’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of 4×4 innovation and versatility.
