Which is Better: A Gas or Diesel Engine?

So, you have your heart set on a new Land Rover or Range Rover SUV, and you're ready to start researching your options. One thing you should consider right away is whether you're better off choosing to power your new SUV with a gasoline engine or a diesel engine. Each has its distinct advantages, especially when you consider your personal driving style.

What Type of Driver Are You?

In the City

If you find that most of your driving consists of short trips within Houston's city limits, and that you rarely venture onto the highways, a gas engine makes for a suitable choice.

Outside the City

However, if you rarely venture into the city but spend a majority of your time racking up the miles on the highway, a diesel engine would be the better option.


You prefer the pace of life that comes with living outside of Houston, but drive into town every day for work. For you, a diesel engine would be appropriate.

Leisurely Driver

You're fortunate in that you no longer drive for business reasons, but instead take off on wandering journeys through the countryside when the mood hits. This style of driving is well-suited to either a gas or diesel engine.

Which Land Rover Vehicles Can Be Outfitted With a Diesel Engine?

All Land Rover and Range Rover models offer gasoline engines. However, only four offer the increased fuel efficiency and cleaner emissions that come with a diesel engine:

  • Range Rover
  • Range Rover Sport
  • Range Rover Velar
  • Land Rover Discovery
