One important 4wd angle that I could not find anywhere listed is the "roll over" angle, I did find one reference to it in one of the South African "test drive" days when driving at a 20 degree side-slope one of the passengers asked the Ineos driver what the roll over angle was expecting something like "45". The driver said no it was 38.  (24) INEOS GRENADIER I We Drive "init" - YouTube (21:50 in). That, I think, is a relatively low number on par with a 70 series Troopy  Carrier (*) which is (a bit) taller but significantly narrower; and this was related to an earlier version which had a narrower (front) track than the current Australian V8 version. 

(*) If remembering correctly from an Australian police report I found on-line on roll overs 10 or more year ago.

That started me thinking and I can remember at the West Australia test drive day that the driver said that the engine was sitting very high, which was mentioned in context of some positive attribute like things out of the way, drive shaft angle, or something.

Obviously the engine is quite a heavy thing so the higher the engine sits the lower the roll over angle. I am not overly concerned but I would have felt more secure if it had been 45 degree or something.

Anyone knows more about this?.

One of the reviews shows the vehicle doing a 45 degree side angle slope on the display

ECrider, I presume you did not get a reply from Ineos?
