Today I’m reviewing this Ineos Grenadier and I’ll show you the many quirks and features. I’m also going to get behind the wheel and show you what it’s like to drive. The Grenadier is powered by a choice of BMW six-cylinder engines; the 3.0L B58 inline 6 petrol engine and the 3.0L B57 inline 6 diesel engine.

In the Grenadier, the B57 diesel engine makes 183 kW of power (3250-4200rpm) and 550 N⋅m of torque (1250-3000rpm). The B58 petrol engine makes 210 kW of power (4750rpm) and 450 N⋅m (332 lb⋅ft) of torque (1750-4000rpm).Both engines come mated to a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission (codenamed 8HP51 for the petrol, 8HP76 for the diesel), with what Ineos calls a new “heavy duty” torque converter.


All Grenadiers come standard with permanent four-wheel drive (4WD), with low-range accessed through a 2.5:1 Tremec two-speed transfer case. The Grenadier is built on a box-section ladder frame chassis. The vehicle is named after Ratcliffe’s favourite pub, The Grenadier, in Belgravia, London, where the initial idea was considered, and where a promotional presentation was shown.
