English 4×4 takes first mission on the ground in France!

The Grenoble Fire Brigade has received two new vehicles used for operational command, the Ineos Grenadiers. The English manufacturer manufactures this all-terrain vehicle at its Humbach plant in Moselle. It was the first time that a grenadier joined the ranks of the French firemen!

Ineos continues to position itself in the market, on the one hand by continuing the production of its 4×4 Grenadier, but also by diversifying its range, notably the Quartermaster pick-up and the smaller Fusilier, planned soon. Today, the brand announces that it has donated 2 grenadiers to Grenoble firefighters. These machines will be used as operational command vehicles.

Specifically, the Grenadier will be deployed and employed by the Departmental Fire and Rescue Service (SDIS). Tasks related to civil protection, but also rescue interventions or security measures, throughout the department of Grenoble and Isère. This is the first time that Ineos has donated a copy or two of its Grenadier to a rescue team in France.

A chance to test the grenadier's skills and versatility

The Grenoble fire brigade crews were busy customizing their 2 grenadiers. Ineos specifically mentions an armor plate under the chassis, aluminum headlight and light protectors, level 1 window reinforcement, as well as a universal traction system. Not forgetting the rotating lights, siren, search lights and traditional red livery.

On top of all this, the 2 Grenadiers offered to firefighters are equipped with both soft and rugged packs, including a reversing camera, charging sockets, a winch, front, central and rear locking differentials or again BFGoodrich all-terrain tyres. . Under the hood, we find a 6-cylinder 3.0 biturbo diesel from BMW. Anyway, it's a first solid situation for the Ineos Grenadier!
