Any thoughts on the forum regarding this project? Was just turned onto it and must say that the esthetic is spectacular.

It sounds like they have the US market in mind on the build. They're targeting Europe for 2023 with a US release presumably after.

Tempted to hang with my 97 4runner build for a couple more years if this project has any legs. Otherwise, probably a 2021/22 Rubi or Squatch with the rest of y'all.

Honestly, it looks pretty awesome! It's going to be more than my pocketbook can handle though lol. And no removable top.

They estimated $80k. Roughly G wagon money they said in the video I saw.

It'll certainly be interesting on price. I'd read that they were targeting below 40k british ($55k usd) which would be great. But $80k is another matter entirely. Not sure I can sell that one to the wife.

I'll be honest. I'm the black sheep in that the non-removable top is a big draw for me. I like the sound, privacy and insulation benefits of a hard top (live out of my car on camping trips).

The idea of a SFA does appeal right now as well... However, I say that having just blown two CVs in Utah while fooling around the last week. I'm sure the bronco CVs are leaps and bounds above the old 4runners.

I've followed the Grenadier from the get-go. Ford looks like "The Flash" compared to Ineos.

For a design that's supposed to be the spiritual heir the a classic Defender, either they need glasses or I do

They took the Defender Series and copied it, which was a few generations from copying the Jeep. It has the stuff, if it comes to market as marketed. It'll be the bomb.

Y'all think they can get those BMW engines into the US (emissions)?

They're the best options I've seen in a SUV offering in a long time (especially the diesel). The V6 ford ecoboosts seems to be the only engine that can rival.
