INEOS Grenadier scooped class victory in 10-day endurance rally – the first rally win for the newly launched 4X4

INEOS Automotive won its first rally in the US and Canadian endurance Alcan 5000 Rally 2024. The INEOS Grenadier claimed victory in the Truck/SUV class, beating 16 other competitors. The event is a time-speed-distance (TSD) endurance rally where participants travel on public roads or trails, following specific routes at precisely prescribed rally-designated speeds. The event features ice roads, ice slaloms, endurance tests, and long 14-hour drive days.

Andy Lilienthal, a journalist and the team’s driver said, With temps as low as –32 degrees Fahrenheit, the INEOS Grenadier was a solid performer in every condition we put it in. Its suspension easily soaked up hundreds of miles of frost heaves and potholes, the turbocharged engine had plenty of power to get by slow traffic, and the interior was comfortable and versatile. It was a champ in the deeper snows on the ice slalom competition too. The Grenadier was an excellent vehicle to have on this long and demanding rally. To have this new vehicle on the 40th year of the Alcan 5000 and take top honours in our class was amazing.” 

Lynn Calder, CEO of INEOS Automotive, comments, Mercedes and Andy are true trailblazers that really pushed our Grenadier to the limit and excelled. Watching their journey across 5,000 miles was great fun, even the brutal, competitive endurance tests in the ice and snow. Well done, team!”


The INEOS Grenadier 4X4 is a tough off-road vehicle that combines rugged British design with German engineering. It features a full box-section ladder frame chassis, heavy-duty solid beam axles, a two-speed transfer case, and up to three locking differentials. The vehicle is powered by a choice of BMW 3.0-litre turbo-charged inline six-cylinder petrol or diesel engines. The interior is versatile, practical, and equipped with the latest technology, including an infotainment touchscreen. The Grenadier is ready for anything work and life can throw at it.
