Diesel Means Power And Efficiency In 2016 Range Rover Models
Since gasoline prices continually fluctuate it’s always helpful to find ways to increase efficiency in the vehicle you drive. But at the same time you don’t want to forgo the power and capability you get in vehicles like the 2016 Range Rover and 2016 Range Rover Sport. There’s a way to have both increased fuel efficiency and power and capability, however, and it comes in the 3.0-liter turbo diesel engine available in both models.
The 2016 Range Rover and 2016 Range Rover Sport offer an available 3.0-liter turbo diesel six-cylinder engine that produces 254 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque, matched to an eight-speed transmission, and driving all four wheels. It provides powerful and exciting performance, enabling a top speed of around 130 miles per hour and zero-to-60 mile per hour times in the low-seven-second range. And it allows both models to tow as much as 7,716 pounds.
Where the turbo diesel six-cylinder engine shines is in its excellent fuel efficiency. Diesel fuel undergoes less processing than gasoline, which allows it to remain more energy dense. That means you can travel farther on a gallon of diesel fuel than you can on a gallon of gasoline. Greater energy density also means increased efficiency in the 2016 Range Rover and 2016 Range Rover Sport. Both models can achieve 29 percent greater efficiency during city driving and 26 percent greater efficiency on the highway.
And of course, one of the most noticeable benefits of diesel is an increase in torque production that you can feel every time you step on the accelerator. The 2016 Range Rover and 2016 Range Rover Sport boast 32.5 percent higher torque production than their gasoline powered counterparts.
You don’t have to forgo power and capability to experience greater fuel efficiency.
