Prices are announced here; base model is $84000 which is pretty competitive with the Landcruiser Prado and considerably cheaper than the new full sized Landcruiser 300. It’s way cheaper than the 110 Defenders that are coming here, which are all $110k and upwards.
What is interesting is their approach to servicing. One of the reasons that Landrovers don’t sell well beyond the big cities is the lack of a dealer network beyond the major centres. There’s a Toyota dealer in every town.
Ineos have announced a deal with Bosch service centres which have franchises all over Oz. Bosch will do the OEM servicing. They’ve also announced a helicopter response service outback.
Must say I’m impressed.
Will be interesting to see how they come out, there are elements of the Grenadier that are quite appealing.
Some bits aren't like being built in France, but you can't have everything.
