2023 Ineos Grenadier Starts At £49,000 In The UK, Undercuts Land Rover Defender 110

The 2023 Ineos Grenadier will cost from £49,000 ($61,489) when it goes on sale in the UK next month, giving a clue to how the 4×4 will be priced when U.S. details are released later this year.

Kicking off the range is a two-seat Utility Wagon that comes with a full-height cargo barrier and flat floor,and is intended to compete with commercial versions of the Land Rover Defender. Technically, the cheapest of those, the short-wheelbase, 197 hp (200 PS) two-door Defender 90 Hardtop, undercuts the Grenadier by over £3,000 ($3,763). But to match the Grenadier’s space and 246 hp (249 PS) output you have to step up to the Defender 110 Hardtop, and that starts at £53,745 ($67,424).

North American prices for the French-built spiritual successor to the original Land Rover Defender are still being finalized ahead of a 2023 launch. But for context, the U.S.-market Defender 90 lineup opens at $52,300 for an entry-grade S car, and the 110 (which is available in non-S guise) begins at $51,700, though both those prices are for turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engines, a configuration the Grenadier doesn’t offer.

Ineos offers two engines, both turbocharged 3.0-liter, six-cylinder units from BMW driving all four wheels through a ZF8HP eight-speed automatic transmission. The B57 diesel punches out 246 hp (249 PS) and 406 lb-ft (550 Nm) of torque, while the B58 gasoline alternative makes 282 hp (286 PS) and 332 lb-ft (450 Nm). Ineos also plans to offer a hydrogen fuel cell option in the future and has heavily invested in the technology.

The Grenadier Utility Wagon has a 73.7 cu-ft (2,088-liter) load capacity, can tow 7,720 lbs (3,500 kg) and winch 12,125 lbs (5,500 kg). But if you want a five-seat version, the cargo bay is cut to 40.7 cu ft (1,152 liters). The passenger version of the Grenadier doesn’t only cost you cargo space – it also costs you financially as the base five-seat Ineos starts at £52,000 ($65,235).

Buyers looking for something being a bare-bones Grenadier have a few configuration options to choose from, both developed with the Ineos-owned clothing brand Belstaff, which is well know for its motorcycle- and outdoor clothing, and costing from £59,000 ($74,000).

As its name suggests, the Grenadier Trailmaster is designed for life away from paved roads and comes with front and rear diff locks, BF Goodrich all-terrain tires, a raised car intake and an auxiliary battery. The spec of the Grenadier Fieldmaster, on the other, hand, suggests the nearest it’ll come to a field is when it rolls up the polo club. It comes with a “Smooth Pack”, which includes a back-up camera, puddle lamps, powered mirrors and heated leather seats.
