Ineos Grenadier Quartermaster review

Published: 18 May 2024


What should I be paying?

The Quartermaster model range will reflect the Station Wagon, so there will be a base-spec that’s just called Quartermaster with prices starting at £66,215.

Then come the Belstaff-inspired Trialmaster and Fieldmaster trims. The former is geared towards off-roading with 17-inch steel wheels, front and rear diff lockers, a snorkel to raise the air intake, BFGoodrich all-terrain tyres and that 400W power take-off in the bed. That starts at £73,715.

The Fieldmaster costs exactly the same as the Trialmaster, but is much more road-focussed with a premium sound system, leather upholstery, heated front seats, the safari windows in the roof and carpeted floor mats.

All of those prices include VAT, because while the Quartermaster carries the N1 classification in the EU, its less-than-one-tonne payload means that it’d have to be registered as a pool car and used solely for business if you want to claim the tax back. You will still pay the cheaper van VED rate, but you also won’t get lower benefit-in-kind (BIK) tax rates that come with other pickups.

It’s also worth noting here that the payload is 835kg for the petrol and only 760kg for the diesel.

Still, it should last a long while with the galvanised ladder frame backed by a 12-year anti-perforation warranty and the truck itself backed by a five-year, unlimited mileage mechanical warranty. Oh, and Ineos says there are over 100 options and accessories on the configurator, so go and have a play if you want to find out more.
