Quartermaster Pickup

The Ineos Grenadier Quartermaster pickup is set to make its debut in the United States, following the commencement of Ineos Grenadier deliveries in November. The Quartermaster, an offshoot of the rugged SUV, was initially unveiled in July. According to an Ineos spokesperson interviewed by Automotive News (subscription required) on Monday, preorders for the pickup in the U.S. are expected to become available in early 2024.

While specific pricing details remain undisclosed, it is anticipated that the Quartermaster will carry a higher price tag compared to the Grenadier, which starts at $73,100, inclusive of a $1,600 destination charge. This pricing disparity can be attributed to the “chicken tax,” which imposes a 25% tariff on foreign-made light trucks imported into the United States.

Manufacturing of the Quartermaster is carried out at Ineos’ facility in Hambach, France, alongside the production of the Grenadier. European customers can anticipate deliveries to commence in December. Automotive News reports that there are plans for a chassis cab version of the Quartermaster, including availability in the U.S., with production slated to commence in 2024.

The Quartermaster shares its body-on-frame platform with the Grenadier SUV but boasts a longer wheelbase, measuring 127 inches compared to the SUV’s 115 inches. The pickup’s bed extends a little over 60 inches in length and has a maximum payload capacity of 1,675 pounds. Impressively, the truck can tow a maximum of 7,700 pounds, matching the towing capacity of the SUV.

Notable specifications for the Quartermaster include 10.4 inches of ground clearance, a wading depth of 31.5 inches, and impressive approach, breakover, and departure angles, which Ineos asserts are unmatched in the realm of production pickups. Solid beam axles supplied by Carraro are featured at both the front and rear ends of the vehicle.

Buyers will have the option to select between diesel and gasoline engines, both of which are sourced from BMW and are turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-6 units. Both engine options come paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission and a four-wheel-drive system that includes a 2-speed transfer case, along with available front and rear differential lockers. Notably, in the U.S. market, the Quartermaster will be offered exclusively with the gasoline engine.

For enthusiasts of electric vehicles, Ineos has announced plans to commence production of an electric 4×4 model smaller in size than the Grenadier, with a projected release date in 2026.
