Sir Jim Ratcliffe saw the new Land Rover Defender and was less than impressed. So unimpressed that he tried — and failed — to buy the tooling for the old Defender.

Billed as an SUV “built to do a job”, Ineos’ exterior design for the Grenadier is almost more Defender than the Defender, with round headlights and square, ruggedly handsome dimensions. Ineos is building a plant for the Grenadier in Bridgend, Wales, with production to start in late 2021. Find out more here.
