Land Rover Discovery Miles Per Gallon
So, how fuel efficient is the Land Rover Discovery? This luxury vehicle can achieve an EPA-estimated fuel economy of up to 21 city/26 highway MPG at its best. You’ll see these figures with the available 3.0L turbodiesel engine, which sips as little fuel as possible.
There’s one other engine available in the Discovery. The 3.0L supercharged V6 trades fuel economy for horsepower, though it still puts up impressive numbers. With this engine equipped, you can expect up to 16 city/21 highway MPG, per EPA estimates.
Either way, you can minimize your visits to the gas station in this midsize luxury SUV. Next, we’ll consider those Ingenium engines and what makes them so efficient!

The Innovation Powering Ingenium
The Land Rover Discovery is powered by the Ingenium line. These engines are designed from the ground up to blend fuel economy with a smooth and potent performance.
Both gas and diesel engines have low internal friction and feature electronically controlled piston cooling jets. The latter feature improves efficiency in the oil pumping circuit, so you can go farther on one tank of fuel.
Another factor in the excellent fuel economy of the Discovery? Its state-of-the-art aluminum unibody. The structure is 1,000 pounds lighter than the previous generation, featuring the latest in materials and build technologies. It feels lighter on its feet (er, wheels) than ever before!
Outstanding Engine Specs & Capabilities
Fuel economy is important—but what can these engines do? The turbodiesel has plenty of torque on tap. In fact, you’ll see 254 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque with this engine equipped. Acceleration is solid for the daily drive—you can get up to 60 MPH in just 7.7 seconds.
The supercharged V6 may be a bit less efficient, but it can get you up to speed even quicker. In as little as 6.9 seconds, you can reach speeds of 60 MPH. It’s all thanks to the 340 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque this engine has on tap.
With the V6, you can also top out this luxury vehicle’s towing capacity. Hitch up the family boat—you can tow up to 8,201 pounds test this engine’s might!
