Defender-Rivalling INEOS Grenadier Seen in India

The Land Rover Defender lookalike INEOS Grenadier was seen in India for the first time ever. The Ineos Grenadier aims to be a better and updated version of the original Land Rover Defender SUV. Billionaire Sir Jim Ratcliffe was inspired by the classic Defender and wanted to keep it alive even after Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) decided to stop producing it. Initially, he wanted to simply replicate it but later decided to create a more modern and comfortable version instead. Let us take a look at the details of this rugged SUV.

INEOS Grenadier Seen in India

This post comes from carcrazy.india on Instagram. It captures the sturdy SUV moving on the road. Someone driving adjacent to the SUV made the video. Since they did not overtake it, the rear and side profiles of the SUV are visible. As per the information in the caption, this is the first and only INEOS Grenadier in India. It has been imported to our shores by someone. The road presence of the Grenadier is quite imposing. People who love tough SUVs would really appreciate the utilitarian and practical design.

At the rear, we witness the round LED taillamps. These are compact in shape which is reminiscent of the old large SUVs. Apart from that, the spare tyre has been mounted on the bootlid. The boxy silhouette is evident in this video clip. There is also a compact ladder at the rear. The side profile will instantly make you think about the original Land Rover Defender from decades ago. It is not entirely clear which kind of wheels it possesses – whether they are steel wheels or alloy wheels. In any case, the overall demeanour of the SUV is quite appealing, especially for those looking for hardcore off-roading.

In terms of off-roading gear, the SUV packs a sturdy ladder-frame chassis, a permanent 4×4 drivetrain, water-wading abilities, a 5-link suspension system, tough off-road tyres, solid beam axles, and a robust overall structure. The power comes from BMW engines – the B58 3.0-litre 6-cylinder petrol engine delivers 286 PS / 450 Nm, while the B57 3.0-litre 6-cylinder diesel engine offers 240 PS / 550 Nm of power and torque, respectively. Both variants are equipped with a ZF 8-speed automatic gearbox for smooth transmission. The vehicle is available in two body types – a Station Wagon for personal use and a Utility Wagon for commercial purposes. These are international specs. We don’t know which engine this model is carrying.
