Hello all,

This is the very first time I joined a forum so please excuse any mistakes. Really looking forward to the North American release. It will be interesting to see how folks in Aus and Europe react to their deliveries.

Is there a nickname anyone is using for the Grenadier yet?

Anyway, wishing everyone the best of luck.

Happy Holidays,

Bitteroot

Welcome aboard! Have you played with the configuration tool on the Grenadier website? What does your Gren look like?

Also - Nickname Thread
Ha! That was fast. I'm leaning towards Green, White roof right now. That seems to be fairly common from what I can tell. Other than that, I think all white would be perfectly acceptable. I'm not into Outback-level overlanding. I just want to get deep into the backcountry with my kids and hunt and fish. This is the first time in my life that we have the money for something like this so it's pretty exciting.

That’s a great color combo; lots of members are heading down the same path. I’m thinking silver (I steered away from the white because it’s a bit buttermilkish) because it will hide the scratches best. I do love the white roofs though - the Land Rover fan in me always has.

Welcome to the forum @bitteroot77 I’m sure I’m not the only one saying that we’re glad you chose this one as your first.
The nickname is still settling down a bit, there’s quite a bit of chatter so happy reading there. Also there’s a wealth of information from people on here that are scouring the internet for snippets of info on the finished product. It also helps to have a few friendly dealers/agents on board ;)

Stu.

Hello and welcome.. Montana.. I remember very well .. spent a few weeks visiting in Missoula ..the place my eldest daughter learned to walk .. 25 years ago. that state is definitely a proper habitat for an IG.
Remember having white tails in the backyard consuming plant and a mountain lion above.. Nice place you live.. and definitely not too crowded

Nicknaming the Grenadier..
My problem the term Grenadier has of course a military touch and Grennie..refers in Germany as an abbreviation for those poor infantry lads walking below surface.. .. also some sweet to Grandma.. none of both I’d like.
Indeed here its often IG aka Iggy or The beast..
Enjoy your time ..

My wife has asked if the truck had a name yet and it does not. I said until I see “her” in the flesh she can’t be named. Sorta like a puppy. You might have a name in mind, but you have to see if it fits before you proclaim it.

The word "Granny" we have still used here as a nickname for the "Grand Cherokee" - so I for my person will probably not use it for the Ineos Grenadier. BUT - WHY NOT?

My own cars don´t have any nicknames. My Camaro was my Camaro. Even my old Toyota is called "Toyota" or "Toyo" or "die Kiste/the box". Because it looks like a box, and there is not really much comfort in driving it.

So I think ... I will call it "Ineos" oder "Grenadier" oder "IG". Or "the new one". What about "Sir Ratcliffe"? :unsure:

Dave - I very good friend bought a new one last March.

Picked me up in it. Proud as a new father he was.

The very first thing he said to me as I opened the passenger door - "it's got A/C front seats".

Great- I said but "when do we go into the hills off road"...........we haven't been!
