2013 Land Rover LR2 now more fuel-efficient, according to EPA

Article by Christian Andrei, on January 4, 2013

The Environmental Protection Agency said that the 2013 Land Rover LR2 with the downsized 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine offers improved fuel economy. In city driving, the 2013 Land Rover LR2 returns 17 mpg while on the highway, it offers 24 mpg. In comparison, the EPA has determined that the 2012 LR2 returns 15 mpg in city driving and 22 mpg on the highway.

The 2013 LR2 displays a 13% boost in city driving and about 9% better on the highway. One of the primary worries about the outgoing LR2 was its low fuel economy. When the 2013 LR2 with the new engine debuted, Land Rover had not given a fuel economy estimate. Many had been waiting for the EPA to release the most vital information about its redesign.

The 2013 Land Rover LR2 is now powered by a new 240-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, which replaces the former 3.2-liter inline six-cylinder engine. Even with the improvement, the LR2 still trails several of its rivals, such as the 2013 Audi Q5 and BMW X3 xDrive 28i, when it comes to fuel economy. The EPA said that the 2013 Audi Q5 with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine offers 20 mpg in city driving and 28 mpg on the highway.

The agency also said that the 2013 BMW X3 xDrive28i with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine offers 21 mpg in city driving and 28 mpg on the highway. It has been observed that gas prices have not been too much of a worry lately. According to the AAA Daily Fuel Gauge Report last Thursday, the average price for a gallon of unleaded gasoline in the U.S. at $3.26 compared to $3.41 a month ago.
