Land Rover commits to reducing emissions without compromising performance thanks to the latest line-up of diesel engine options for 2017.

There are many different alternative fuel options available that help drivers reduce their carbon footprint while still offering the power and capability drivers crave.   Land Rover has recently integrated these options in the 2017 model line-up which includes diesel options with both the 2017 Range Rover Sport and the 2017 Range Rover. Diesel fuel has been around for a long time, but continues to evolve to be even cleaner and more efficient year after year. It is one of the most efficient fuels in existence and is much less processed than gasoline. Gallon per gallon, it delivers more energy and goes further than most other fuels including gasoline.

Save on Fuel and Emissions with Td6 Technology

The improved fuel efficiency of the Td6 engine is a great choice for drivers and commuters.   This equates to significant savings at the pump for drivers who log a lot of miles during their daily commute or cross-country travels. This is because thanks to the efficiency of new compression-ignition diesel engines, diesel fuel delivers much better mileage than gasoline. This means fewer fill-ups for drivers and generally lower fuel costs overall. Best of all, it also translates into fewer emissions of carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, and hydrocarbons compared to gasoline vehicles.

With the Td6 diesel engine, drivers can now enjoy improved efficiency performance in the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport. For example, the Range Rover diesel earns 29% more city mpg than its gasoline counterpart and 26% higher highway mpg. Additionally, it also features greater torque than the V6 gasoline engine (up to 440lb-ft torque with the Td6 and 332lb-ft torque with the traditional V6 gasoline engine).

Never Compromise on Power and Capability

In addition to towing capacity and off-road capabilities, the diesel-powered TD6 engine also provides powerful acceleration compered to gasoline models with higher horsepower. The Range Rover and Range Rover Sport Td6 dash from 0-60mph in 7.4 and 7.1 seconds respectively. Both models have been tested extensively to ensure they meet or exceed the strict standards set by Land Rover for U.S. buyers. For example, Land Rover organized driving tests last year in a variety of large U.S. cities to see if drivers could tell the difference between the diesel engine performance and the gasoline engine performance during a thirty minute test-drive. Land Rover reports that the diesel engine model drives so smoothly that the majority of participants could not tell the difference.

Drivers who are interested in learning more about the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport diesel should contact a friendly sales representative at Land Rover Santa Barbara to schedule a test drive. We encourage Santa Barbara drivers to visit our showroom and see for themselves if they can tell the difference between the gas and diesel-powered models and experience the control of the Td6 in person.
