That seems reasonable for a BMW-powered old-school 4x4.
Pricing for the Ineos Grenadier has finally been confirmed. The utilitarian yet premium off-roader will start at $71,500 in the US, while two other "preconfigured" models, called the Trialmaster Edition and Fieldmaster Edition, start at a smidge under $80,000.
The base Ineos Grenadier is deliberately spartan. Ineos describes it as a "blank canvas ready to be configured for the exact needs of customers," making it the closest in concept to the original Land Rover Defender.
It has a six-cylinder BMW engine, box section ladder-frame chassis, permanent four-wheel-drive, solid beam axles, and up to three locking differentials.
The Trialmaster Edition is oriented towards more extreme off-roading and is named after a jacket from Ineos' existing outdoor clothing company, Belstaff.
Ineos said the jacket was "created in 1948 at the request of professional Trials biker and Irishman Sammy Miller, and was designed to cope with the grueling conditions of the Scottish Six Days Trial."
The Trialmaster is beefed up for off-road activity with features like electronically activated front and rear differential locks and BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 tires.
The Grenadier Fieldmaster Edition is named after another outdoor jacket. The Fieldmaster coat is a cross between a motorcycle jacket but longer and made from waxed cotton. Selling for $595.00, the Grenadier Fieldmaster Edition is a more cultured adventure vehicle with safari windows, a leather interior, carpet floor mats, and heated front seats. In its press release, Ineos mentions towing a horse box, which sounds about right.
Pre-ordering opens on May 31 for US and Canadian customers, and the price points make the Grenadier an exciting prospect. Ineos promises retail stores and servicing but has designed the Grenadier to be easy to work on. It also provides 3D interactive manuals online for those wanting to work on their own vehicles. That's an exciting and even rebellious proposition in a world where cars are becoming increasingly complex and more complicated to maintain in a home garage.
The electric Grenadier will be launched in 2026, and while it hasn't been confirmed for the USA, it would make a nice rival for the Rivian R1T.
