came out from the grocery store a few weeks back to see a Grenadier parked directly in front of my '04 Discovery.

it is a great looking vehicle in person. after seeing yours and pm's and seeing one in real life, i'm hoping to have one myself in the next year or two.

There was a smurf blue Grenadier parked at the cabin next to ours up near Flagstaff this weekend. A very nice looking truck!

Just like Peter's photo, lots of flowery language over here from Grenadier..... and even Lord March, Duke of Richmond!

Actually a cool looking little pickup truck, too bad it's drowned in hyperbole.

Meanwhile, the Defender is finally getting a proper makeover with lots of mention of DNA and heritage and blood running pink and so forth.

As a fyi: The Chicken Tax is a 25% tariff on light trucks imported to the U.S. The United States imposed the tariff in 1964 through an executive order issued by President Lyndon Johnson, in retaliation against European tariffs on American chicken imports.

Just came back from a three-day Death Valley trip, with the same group we went many times in the past.
Only half a year ago, it was the most-diverse group, vehicle-wise: the only similar vehicles were an 89 and 95 Classics.
Now - a 93 NAS 110, a Tundra, and five Grenadiers. Out of five Gren owners, four owned Land Rovers in the past or currently own them. One owned nearly every kind of Japanese 4x4.
At a short glance - it is an instantaneous ~$450k loss for JLR, and, weighing the age of the owners, between $400k and $1M in repeat purchases. I don't believe in brand loyalty of RRS and L663 purchasers - most of them will dump them as soon as the problems creep up and the Insta crowd moves on to another status symbol.
Other than that... in about 160 miles on DV dirt, not a single hood was opened, not a tweak to anything.

How did the one with the orange beak look like in person? Any more pics? I am curious how that color stuff played out. From this picture, looks a little silly.
