The Mossos are armored off the asphalt thanks to the Ineos Grenadier

He Ineos Grenadier It is one of the SUVs that has surprised the most in recent years. While many of these models that stand out off the asphalt have been lost, the British firm came with a model that prioritized effectiveness and that made nods to the past. After catching our attention during the test, it has now also caught our attention with one of the most popular police forces of all. The Mossos d’Esquadra They are in the process of expanding their fleet and have only acquired one unit of this model.

This is the first time that a police force opts for the Ineos Grenadier in our country and is part of the fleet expansion with 62 4×4 vehicles. In addition to this unique Grenadier that has been selected by the Mossos Advanced Command Center, they have also acquired 56 units of the three-door Toyota Land Cruiser, three units of the five-door and two other Toyota Hilux for different work areas. It corresponds to the largest investment in Mossos in the last 15 years with 4,795,800 million euros.

The main task of the Ineos Grenadier of the Mossos will be to carry out civil patrols throughout Catalonia and also serve as support in case of serious emergencies. In fact, of all the off-road vehicles purchased, it is the one that has the best off-road capabilities due to its chassis with side members and cross members, which is completed with 4×4 traction and a two-speed transfer case, with up to three locking differentials. Boasts of a ground clearance of 260 mm and a maximum wading depth of 800 mm.

In addition, reliability will be good considering that it has a BMW engine. Under its hood there is a 3.0-liter six-cylinder twin-turbo diesel that develops 249 hp and 550 Nm of torque, always linked to the eight-speed ZF automatic transmission. The Ineos Grenadier that the Mossos D’Esquadra will use has received a front winch and a hitch at the rear to facilitate work. Also a front camera to transmit images to the advanced command center.
