A Ute variant of the Ineos Grenadier Heavy-Duty 4WD was caught on camera near the final showroom trim.
the Ineos Grenadier Ute Australia is one step closer with images emerging online of the double cab pickup undergoing final validation testing in Europe.
In September 2021, Ineos confirmed that the Grenadier-Ute would be coming to Australia, although at the time the vehicle only existed in computer-generated imagery.
A series of images uploaded to the Ineos Grenadier owner Australia Group on the social media platform Facebook overnight the Ute are showing for the first time without any camouflage – complete with bathtub and sports bar.
The social media post claims the test vehicle was photographed in Graz, Austria, near the headquarters of Magna Steyr, the third-party manufacturer that also assembles the Mercedes-Benz G-Class and the Toyota Supra and BMW Z4 sports car twins .
2021, British magazine Autocar showed photos of a partially built prototype Ineos Grenadier ute with an extended wheelbase of 3175mm – 153mm more compared to the car’s 2922mm.
It goes without saying that the Grenadier ute will continue to be offered with BMW’s turbocharged 3.0-litre six-cylinder petrol and diesel engines available in the car, both mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission with permanent four-wheel drive.
The car’s off-road spec includes a two-speed transfer case, up to three differential locks (center standard, front and rear optional), live axles, Eibach coil-spring suspension and your choice of Bridgestone or BFGoodrich KO2 off-road tires.
Ineos sells its vehicles in Australia at non-negotiable fixed prices, with the entry-level Grenadier ‘Utility’ car starting at $97,000 plus road costs, or more than $100,000 for the trip.
First customer deliveries of the Ineos Grenadier to Australian customers were set to begin this month – almost three months after initial forecasts due to a production delay in France.
