The rugged Grenadier SUV, a product of the British chemical colossus Ineos, set to hit the U.S. later this year, has recently birthed a variant – a crew cab pickup truck.
Making its first appearance at the 2023 Goodwood Festival of Speed in the U.K. on Thursday, the Grenadier Quartermaster pickup truck was introduced, along with a Grenadier technology demonstrator equipped with a hydrogen fuel-cell powertrain, also produced by Ineos.
The newly unveiled Grenadier Quartermaster borrows its body-on-frame platform from the Grenadier SUV, though with a lengthier wheelbase measuring 127 inches, compared to the SUV’s 115 inches. The truck’s rear bed spans slightly over 60 inches with an impressive payload capacity of 1,675 pounds. Also, the pickup’s maximum towing capacity stands at 7,700 pounds, matching the SUV’s rating.
Ineos further highlights that the Quartermaster features an exceptional ground clearance of 10.4 inches, 31.5 inches of wading depth, and approach, breakover, and departure angles that they believe are unmatched in the production pickup segment. Both ends of the pickup feature Carraro-supplied solid beam axles.

The Quartermaster is offered with either diesel or gasoline engines – both turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-6 units supplied by BMW. An 8-speed automatic transmission and a four-wheel-drive system with a 2-speed transfer case are standard. Options for front and rear differential locks are also available.
In the U.K., the Grenadier Quartermaster can already be ordered, starting at a price of 66,215 British pounds (about $86,550). While it’s not confirmed if the pickup will be made available in the U.S., it’s a possibility that it might not make it across the pond due to the Chicken Tax imposing a 25% tariff on foreign-made light trucks. Nevertheless, the SUV variant is set for a U.S. launch with a starting price tag of $71,500.
Manufacturing of the Grenadier takes place in a repurposed Mercedes-Benz plant located in Hambach, France.
Ineos has also hinted at the development of an electric off-roader, speculated to be smaller than the Grenadier, set to be introduced in 2026.
