Until May 2, 2024, the INEOS Grenadier lineup for the United Kingdom started with the Utility Wagon specification. A two-seat utility vehicle with off-road chops, the Utility Wagon has been replaced by the Grenadier Commercial.
Now available at £51,931 (circa $65,120) excluding value-added tax and on-the-road costs, Grenadier Commercial has a few things going for it. For starters, prospective owners can reclaim the value-added tax and benefit from power benefit-in-kind tax rates. But more importantly, the London-based automaker says that going commercial resulted in zero compromises to the Grenadier's off-road capability and on-road driving dynamics.

Looking at the bigger picture, fewer seats result in a lower curb weight and a lower center of gravity. The added benefit of a flat floor behind the front seats also results in the ability to carry a 1,200- by 800-millimeter Euro pallet. INEOS further sweetens the deal with more than 2,000 liters (70.6 cubic feet) of load space, a braked towing capacity of 3.5 tons (7,716 pounds), and 5.5 tons (12,125 pounds) of winching power.

A black-painted wire mesh partition separates the cargo and seating areas. The rear-seat chassis mounting points are permanently disabled, and the rearmost side windows are replaced by aluminum panels. The Grenadier Commercial also comes with blacked-out glazing for the rear windows. While all Grenadiers are produced in France, the Grenadier is converted to Commercial specification by the folks at EDC Limited in Pontypool.

The Commercial is joined by the five-seat Utility Wagon, Quartermaster Chassis Cab, and the Quartermaster double-cabbed pickup truck. Not long now, the Grenadier line will be joined by the British automaker's first EV.

Revealed with much pomp in February 2024, the Fusilier was developed in conjunction with Magna, the industry-leading automotive supplier that operates a contract manufacturing facility in Austria. Not exactly a coincidence, the Graz-based assembly plant will be tasked with making the Fusilier EV and Fusilier REEV.

The Grenadier, meanwhile, comes from a factory that was previously used by Mercedes-Benz AG for the production of smart microcars. The Land Rover Defender-inspired utility vehicle is 4x4 by default. ZF's well-known 8HP torque-converter automatic is the only transmission available, but customers are offered a choice between inline-six turbo gasser and inline-six turbo diesel muscle.

INEOS didn't specify if the Commercial grade is available with the diesel mill exclusively. Both six-pot engines are supplied by Munich-based BMW. The 3.0-liter diesel makes 249 ps and 550 Nm of torque, meaning 246 horsepower and 406 pound-feet. As for the 3.0-liter gas engine, which is closely related to the sixers in the M340i and the GR Supra 3.0, the numbers are 286 ps and 450 Nm (282 horsepower and 332 pound-feet).

All versions of the Grenadier come with permanent all-wheel drive, a center diff lock, as well as a two-speed transfer case. Opting for the Rough Pack results in differential locks for the front and rear, plus BFGoodrich KO2 all-terrains.
