Despite sharing most of its components and its architecture with the SUV variant, the chassis of the Grenadier Quartermaster is longer by 305 mm (12 inches), resulting in a versatile truck bed measuring 1,564 mm (61.57 inches) in length and 1.619 mm (63.7 inches) in width. You should be able to easily carry a 1,200 mm x 800 mm (47.2 - 31.5 inch) pallet inside, which is what you’ll usually find in Europe.
Moving on to the payload, you can carry 760 kg (1,675 lb) in the bed, to go with a towing capacity of 3,500 kg (about 7,716 lb), which is the same as for the SUV variant. In terms of people, a total of five will fit inside, and if you need more cargo-lugging versatility, know that you can also use the four tie-down rings in the load space (utility rails are optional).
Other highlights, in terms of practicality, would be the 400W power take-off, integrated mounting bar, a 1,280 mm (50.4 inch) tailgate that can support up to 225 kg (about 496 lb) when open, plus a wide range of accessories.
Speaking of which, you can fit either a robust frame, waterproof canvas canopy or a lockable roller tonneau cover in the cargo bay, whereas the roof rack boosts your overall carrying capacity and will hold a host of mounts for jerry cans, sand ladders, shovels and so on.
What about going off-road?We’re glad you asked, because the Grenadier Quartermaster boasts class-leading off-road ability, featuring 264 mm (10.4 inches of ground clearance) and a wading depth of 800 mm (31.5 inches). It also offers approach, breakover and departure angles that are said to be unrivaled by any other series production pickup truck, according to INEOS.
“It’s truly rugged and unbeatable off-road,” said company CEO, Lynn Calder.
As for performance, powering the Grenadier Quartermaster is a choice of BMW-sourced 3.0-liter turbocharged inline six-cylinder engines, either gasoline or diesel-powered, working alongside an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission. You also get a center differential lock, two speed transfer case (front and rear diff locks are optional), solid beam axles, a recirculating ball steering system and Brembo brakes.
Like the Grenadier SUV, the Quartermaster will also be available in Standard, Trialmaster and Fieldmaster trim levels.
