The previous base V-8 rated just 14 mpg city, 20 mpg highway, and 17 mpg combined. With the updated supercharged V-6, base Range Rovers now offer 17 mpg city, 23 mpg highway, and a combined rating of 19 mpg.
At the upper end of the Range Rover line, a 5.0-liter supercharged V-8 continues to offer its robust blend of power and civility, but also continues on with less-than-impressive gas mileage, even amongst its V-8 cohort. At 13 mpg city, 19 mpg highway, and 15 mpg combined, it's not the choice for those concerned with their environmental footprint, even if it does outperform some of the luxury SUV competition.
Nevertheless, the newest supercharged V-8 Range Rovers are more efficient than the previous generation of the vehicle, thanks to a new all-aluminum construction that saves 700 pounds.
