Land Rover — at least in the North American market — has gotten a bad reputation for it’s fuel economy over the years. I’ve owned a Land Rover since 1997 (before they were status symbol vehicles) and I would even call myself a Land Rover enthusiast. So when Land Rover announced they were bringing a Turbo Diesel V6 engine to North America I placed my order. I’m now a proud owner of a 2016 Range Rover TD6 — it’s the engine we should have had back in my 1998 Discovery!
After a little over 1700 miles on clock, my best “journey” is 32.8MPG. Not bad for a truck that has gotten 12-14MPG in the past. Average with City driving is about 24.5/25MPG which is inline with what Land Rover/EPA states the average MPG would be. I’m impressed — great job LR!
Hope this video can change peoples perspective that a capable 4×4 like the Range Rover is now on it’s way to being more eco-friendly and fuel efficient than years past models.
