Thus far it’s an Australian spec option. The UK/Euro spec trucks do not have the option because of pedestrian safety measures. I’m hoping we will be able to get our hands on them in the US.

Has anyone an idea if you can order a bull bar for the Grenadier. I've seen it somewhere on Australian vehicles.
I can confirm that it isn't allowed any more in Europe. The bumper is also made of plastic, for the same reason.
And, I am not alone anymore as a Belgian! (y) :)

It only mounts to the steel bumper, so that's where you have to start

In Germany the same. No chance. I hope for the aftermarket - perhaps sometimes there will be a metal bumper, we call it "Geräteträger" - so you can mount a winch on it (but don´t need to do that). But the really nice Australian Bull Bars (in the good old times even possible in Germany) will no longer be allowed.
I will drive a 2.6 tons Car with a 3.0l BMW-Diesel - isn´t that dangerous enough? ;) Okay, that was a choke....

I had this till the end of 2007. That was the day I sold it :cry: - numberplate and driver are not me/mine. Lived 3.5 years in Tunisia with it (with local numberplate)
(Stickers on the window are Tunisian tax stickers)
Do they call them Pajeros that in Spain?

:ROFLMAO: :eek: In South-America they called them "Monteros", I guess the same in Spain. My boss in Ecuador (1987-1990) had a Montero, and one of the production engineers too. I was jealous.
@Krabby didn't know the name of the car in the USA, but quite some Spanish speaking people there. Anyway, while driving the Dakar, the Mitsubishi teams called it the Pajero.

Australian review comparing Grenadier to 6 competitors sold in Australia.

Aside from being the best vehicle - the review demonstrates how well priced the Grenadier is in Australia.

It does support the price, but otherwise it’s a stretch to call it a review, it doesn’t draw any conclusions and it seems mainly a way to promote their other videos. But basically the conclusion is if you want something with similar capabilities for a similar price you need to buy a 2-4 year old car.

It's just that the word Pajero translates as "wanker" in that country.
Yet another vehicle name that wasn't passed by the international censors :oops:

Exactly my thoughts.

It reinforced my view that those with an original/old price order have got a real bargain (maybe 20-25% lower than where Grenadier prices will end up by end of 2023) probably because INEOS needed a lower initial market entry price. So, even those with the November 2022 raised price orders are still "in front" compared to the prices (new & used) of competitor vehicles.
