Ineos Automotive, the new British off-roader manufacturer, has revealed its second model and it has the likes of the Toyota LandCruiser 79 Series and popular dual-cab utes in its sights. Revealed overnight at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, the new model is known as the Grenadier Quartermaster.
A spin-off of the brand's Land Rover Defender-rivalling Grenadier off-roader, the Quartermaster has a large rear tray for those looking for a more practical and versatile vehicle. With a lengthened chassis, the Quartermaster's tray measures 1564mm long and 1619mm wide. It's capable of taking a 760kg payload and has a towing capacity of 3500kg.
It's powered by the same BMW-sourced engines as the Grenadier wagon. Which means the choice of either a 3.0-litre six-cylinder petrol or diesel engine paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. It also gets a centre differential lock and two-speed transfer case, as well as Carraro-supplied solid beam axles.
Ineos has announced Australian pricing for the Quartermaster, starting at $110,000 for the entry-grade model and $123,000 for the Fieldmaster and Trialmaster specifications.
Ineos Automotive was founded by British billionaire, Sir Jim Ratcliffe, who owns a 33 per cent stake in the Mercedes-AMG Formula 1 team, who made his fortune with Ineos Chemicals.
