Ineos Grenadier (2021): At A Glance
Intended to fill a gap left by the original Defender, the Ineos Grenadier will feature a body-on-frame construction with a steel ladder chassis and aluminium body. All models will have permanent four-wheel-drive along with three locking differentials and a low-range gearbox, making it a capable off-roader.
There'll be a choice of body styles (including a pick-up model), while the cabin will take a fairly spartan approach. Owners will be encouraged to modify their vehicles with mounting points fitted for aftermarket accessories such as roof racks.
Power will come from 3.0-litre petrol and diesel BMW engines, combined with an eight-speed automatic gearbox. Like the new Defender, a manual transmission won't be offered.
Although prices are expected to undercut its Land Rover rival, the brand is hinted it could target high-spec pick-up trucks when it goes on sale in 2021. That'll give it a price range of around £35,000 - £45,000.
