In this episode of Throttle House, the team delves into the peculiar world of the Grenadier, a rugged off-road truck crafted by the unlikely hands of Ineos, a chemical manufacturer. This British beast, designed in the land of tea and crumpets with a German heart and French craftsmanship, emerges as the brainchild of billionaire Jim Ratcliffe, who scoffs at the luxury-laden offerings of current off-road vehicles like the Defender. With its various forms including the Station Wagon and Quarter Master pickup, the Grenadier presents itself as a no-nonsense, apocalypse-ready machine ready to conquer any terrain while towing a whopping 7700 lb.

As the team unravels the mysteries of the Grenadier, they find themselves enamored by its BMW engine, which delivers power reminiscent of a roaring lion trapped in a Defender's body but with the sophistication of a G-Wagon. The vehicle's unique features such as the solid front axle and recirculating ball steering add to its charm, offering a driving experience unlike any other. However, the team uncovers some teething issues reported by early users, highlighting the challenges faced by a new entrant in the competitive off-road market.

Despite its quirks, the Grenadier's design shines through with practical elements like a load-bearing roof, optional track system, and offset differentials that enhance its off-road capabilities. The team commends the meticulous attention to detail, including the rear gate ladder and the rear offset pumpkin for the differential, showcasing the thoughtfulness behind the Grenadier's construction. While some may question its hefty price tag starting at over $70,000, there's no denying the Grenadier's unique appeal as a specialized, adventure-seeking machine that stands out in a sea of cookie-cutter off-road vehicles.
