    It uses an 8 speed ZF auto box doesn't it? I presume it is same family of box that is in the D4? If so, I'm sold.

    Haha, my wife noticed an article on it the other day and said "that looks like the sort of replacement for our D4 that you'd like!" I've got the tick of approval already, 90% of the battle done...

    Don't know why they keep comparing it to the old defender, it was outdated 20 years ago.

    Sales channels, parts diagrams and parts purchasing.

    Few new tidbits mentioned in this video - all unconfirmed of course, but all very promising.

    Grenadier parts, dealers and warranty - 2 of 2 - YouTube

    Vehicles will be able to be purchased via website direct from Ineos.

    Full 3D parts diagrams will be freely available online.

    Parts will be sold direct to end customers from Ineos.
    Cheers

    The old 70s. The newer ones are absolutely no better than anything else out there.

    V8s are always coming apart for starters, fuel systems etc here.

    I wonder if the squeaks on the back doors will transfer to Ineos Ineos Grenadier, do you reckon it'll take off?

    Interesting model.

    If they set up remote stores in each continent they may have something.

    I was working with a few Linesmen the other week on a large generator job - I've known this group for years now and they all drive Land Cruisers - well up until recently...

    One of them had a new base model G wagon fully fitted out - I asked him how it compared to the Cruiser which he'd had several of over the last 15 years. His reply was "Apart from the lack of power compared to the Cruiser, this runs rings around them - particularly the newer ones that seem to fall apart when you look at them." That last bit surprised me a bit but all the other guys nodded in a knowing sort of way so guessing they aren't what they used to be. The run them fully loaded and work them hard. That company is currently buying Cruisers and G wagons 50/50 now.

    It will be interesting to see what they say about the G wagons after they have had them for a few years.

    NPís have a few of them here as well,they need more room,the tray is larger than the 70.

    Indeed, but theyíve had them on test for 5 or 6 years now in smaller numbers, they have just started buying them in larger quantities now. I havenít met anyone until recently that had one. Iíll ask them again in a couple of years. Ineos Grenadier, do you reckon it'll take off?Ineos Grenadier, do you reckon it'll take off?
