He has at least taken the Grenadier a bit more on the rally side. Not bad.

What is the meaning of 'grunt' in this context ❓

Power. For a 2.7 ton vehicle, it doesn't seem to have any issues climbing those dunes! You'll soon tell an underpowered vehicle in the sand dunes, but the Grenadier looked plenty powerful there

Torque and particularly low down in the revs. 
This is where the diesel shines but as previously commented this is probably the petrol model

Thank you, didn't even find a reasonable explanation in the urban dictionary. :)

Yes, I agree. It seems to be a pleasure to let the car run up these performance sapping dunes with ease - as if they were made of tarmac.

What color is this one? It looks like "Chalk" in some instances, but may just be white (or possibly mushroom, but I don't think so).

Avidtest, that is my question.  It looks like it might be the magic mushroom but the white is a flat white.  I also like the dark navy blue attached to it.

DaveB, I bet the last mile will be Radcliffe driving in Namibia as he gives the seal of approval.

We have had Toto and now George so Lewis seems to be the missing part.
Maybe he is still under his bed looking for his dummy so can't make it.
They have always had one Ineos person and one personality so it would be good to see both Lewis and Jim

I wonder if Lewis will have to remove all of his jewellery and "body piercings" to drive in this car.??

I have an agreement with my wife that she wears the jewelry, hair products and makeup not me.

Looking good!  Makes me lean towards mushroom now - assuming that was mushroom color in the video.  Funny to see the vinyl wrap in such piss poor shape for a marketing video though.

Thought the same thing.  You gotta wrap under the hood not end it at the hood.
