Ineos unveils new Quartermaster pickup truck

Ineos revealed a Land Rover Defender-inspired pickup at Goodwood Festival of Speed

British automotive company, INEOS, has unveiled its latest creation in the form of the brand new "Grenadier Quartermaster" pickup truck. The vehicle is set to be built in Wales and will be aimed primarily at the agricultural and industrial markets, with INEOS aiming to make the Quartermaster as versatile and tough as possible.

INEOS has stated that the Quartermaster will be a high-end pickup targeted at the premium segment of the market - designed to compete with the likes of the Land Rover Defender, Toyota Hilux and Nissan Navara. Notably, INEOS has had a strong spirit since its inception, with a focus on pioneering ideas and products. This innovative company has shown time and again with previous models that it can produce formidable, robust, and functional vehicles, and the Quartermaster continues this tradition.

The Quartermaster promises to be a reliable workhorse, featuring the latest heavy-duty chassis technology and is powered by 3.0-litre BMW engines, a petrol and diesel.

The petrol engine model produces 282bhp and 332lb of torque, which is enough to 62mph from 0 in 8.8 seconds.

The diesel is a little slower. Its 246nhp and 406lb or torque allow it to achieve 0-60mph in 9.8 seconds. However both options have a top speed of 99 miles per hour, and the same 8-speed automatic gearbox and 4-wheel drive system.

It has the same size cabin as most 4x4s, however its overall length has been extended from 895mm to 5440mm due to a longer wheelbase and larger rear overhang. Despite its differences, it is just as capable as the INEOS Grenadier. It can tow up to 3,500kg and its load bed can carry 760kg.

The Genadier Quartermaster is available in the UK, with a starting price of £66,215.

INEOS also showed off a prototype hydrogen fuel-cell version of its Grenadier SUV at Goodwood.
