    Basic (USA) model differences?

    The Fieldmaster and Trailmaster appear to be co-branded configurations with a fixed set of options. What are the major differences between them? Is it better to go with the "base" model and add what you want? Is it cheaper to get a package in the Fieldmaster/Trailmaster? I am thinking about...

    EZ-Pass USA mounting suggestions?

    For those of you in the United States, where would you recommend we mount our EZ-Pass tags? I remember in my JKU Wrangler, the top of the windshield was not a great location because of the vertical slope. I mounted mine near the base of the windshield where the HVAC windshield vents were. Any...

    Now that we’ve become owners

    So now that we’ve become owners here in the U.S. what’s our hive strategy for obtaining factory bull bars for our rigs?

    China vs USA build quality

    I bring this up here because I've seen some opinions about "Chinese junk" on the forum. (And I've mostly agreed.) I personally still have an old-fashioned bias that says "made in the USA (or Canada or Europe)" is probably better than "made in China". For most things. But is it? I think it's...

    USA: Insurance

    Who's shopped around and what have you found? I know it's location dependent but should still give an idea. I'm in Houston, Tx and my LR Discovery TD6 is about $2k/yr. Nothing on my record. Hoping this thing isn't insane.

    USA Payload Stickers

    Hello All, I saw two demo grenadiers during a recent test drive. One was a trial master and the other a field master. I looked at both of their payload stickers and they are showing only around 814lbs? Surely this is some type of mistake. Can anyone confirm? Regards, Kenneth

    Curious to see if anyone in the US has ordered from Black Sheep? Looking at their roof rack option and considering forgoing the Ineos side steps for the Black Sheep rock sliders with side steps.

    From the forests of Michigan, USA

    Got tired of waiting for an invite. Flew to Edinburgh, Scotland, sat in a Trialmaster, wife likes the seats, came home and ordered one. Too bad Ineos never invited me to a press event or early order event. Might have ordered one last June when USA sales launched. Happy to wait well into 2024...

    USA Buying Process--Beware (dealer vehicle pricing and business practices)

    Hi from AZ - USA

    Can’t wait till they are released in the US. I haven’t seen them in person yet, but what I have read and watched I love them. I like the back to basic idea, less electronics. I hope they are reliable. Don’t mind paying $85k+ if it is going to last me for 15-20 years. That is my goal.

    Hi Ineos,, I had the opportunity to test drive the Grenadier Off-Road at the Santa Clarita/Los Angeles Event and was incredibly impressed. It would be great if you could follow back up with some On-Road Driving events in next couple months, especially since the Grenadiers will be On-Road 95% of...

    USA Fieldmaster configuration with 17" alloys?

I'd like the Fieldmaster edition with 17" alloys, so I can...

    what lies in store for usa buyers as all new cars need a rear camera?
