At today's gas prices, you'll spend about half as much as the sticker price of the 2012 Range Rover on a lifetime of fuel.
The Range Rover's no performance or luxury slouch, but it stumbles hard on gas mileage. Both the normally aspirated version and the supercharged edition are rated by the EPA t 12/18 mpg, low even by full-size sport-ute standards.
In our experience, the real-world numbers usually fall toward the low end of that range, too. The EPA's combined number of 14 mpg should give you a clue that, at $4 gas, over a 200,000-mile life span, you'll spend more than $50,000 on gas for your Range Rover.
Rather than angle on future hybrid or diesel Range Rovers for North America, Land Rover's doing something more conventional to help its fuel economy. It's introducing the smaller Range Rover Evoque, powered by a turbo four, to balance out the gas mileage of its uber-luxury lineup.
