The Grenadier successfully completed cold-weather engine testing in northern Sweden and the Alps earlier this year. After these tests INEOS Chairman, Sir Jim Ratcliffe announced his approval of the latest generation Grenadier prototypes. This landmark moment marks the next phase of development for our rugged 4X4.
TOUGH TESTS FOR A TOUGH 4X4
When it comes to challenging testing, our serious 4X4 tackled notorious proving grounds used by the world’s most capable off-roaders. Clocking up winter miles in the icy outpost of Arjeplog, Sweden, and altitude testing high in the Austrian Alps.
AN OFF-ROADER BUILT FOR THE ROAD
Off-road performance is critical, but the Grenadier must also be capable and comfortable on the road. Especially for drivers who need to be in their vehicle all day. Some of the vehicle’s most impressive achievements in testing so far were in on-road driveability and dynamics.
READY TO DELIVER IN 2022
These tough tests are another step towards the production of the Grenadier in July 2022. But they are far from over. By the time they are complete, the prototypes will have driven 1.1 million miles – on all terrain and in all weathers. See how the story unfolds in our new series, Grenadier Vs.
